I am having a heck of a time trying to install woody and sarge. Those
are the only 2 dists I have found on the debian site.
A lot of the documents I have read talk about how to install Debian 2.2
or potato. I can't find the files for this, however.
Does someone either a) have the files for Macintosh installations of
potato (all of the files I will need) or b) know where I can get them?
I guess an option c) would be someone who has installed woody on a
Quadra 700 that can help me.
I get all the way to the point of installing the base system and can't
get either the basedebs.tar or the HTTP from the debian site to work.
Thanks to all.....
I'm sorry: just a few weeks ago I threw away my potato/m68k 3-cd-set. I
have installed woody on my Quadra650 however, so I should be possible.
You say it's installing, uses basedebs.tar and asks for the Packages.gz
file. Have you tried also downloading that and pointing the installer to
it (regardless of what the documentation says)? When is does not
continue, can you switch to the second virtual console (Apple-F2 I
think) and post the output of the "dmesg" command?
Could you also try to use the network-connection, and give a detailed
description of what actually happens, and what not? Where does the
install-process stop/hang/crash (whatever it does). Also in this try,
could you switch to the second virtual console (Apple-F2 I think) and
post the output of the "dmesg" command? and of "ifconfig -a"? How is
this machine connected to the Internet?
Please post as much details as you can, this'll make our job of helping
