Re: Debian Woody on PowerBook 190 - again? :-(
thank you for your help so far!
i booted linux using my 2.6.whatever-mac-kernel as i did last time.
using "init=/bin/sh" i finally got it working... with the rescue system
now the question... can anyone explain to me, how i can partition my
existing 500mb-drive using mac-fdisk (no man-pages in the rescue
disk...)? and the most important thing: how do i get the installer to
work? or which files do i have to copy to my new root-partition? as you
allready asumed, it seems that the woody-installer doesn't like the
2.6-kernel. i wasn't able to find out, which root image on the sarge-cd
1 is the apropriate for me. there are such folders as "cdrom" etc, each
containing another rootimage. do i have to ungzip it before telling
penguin to use it?
i have the current debian woody and the testing-sarge on cdrom

i then tried a 2.6 kernel image. it skips the ide thing finding the
drive. it stops at the very first step of "init". i can use the
keyboard though, switching through the consoles.
If you're using a woody root image, I suspect that it doesn't like
the 2.6 kernel. Have you tried a sarge install using a 2.6 kernel?
I haven't had any trouble with woody and 2.6, other than the swap
version, which is easily fixed with mkswap.
Perhaps you could try "init=/bin/sh" on the kernel command line, that
might tell us more.
