JFYI this installation report we received from Simon Richter. It lists a few issues with the Sarge installer, but I have no idea what their relevance is for the current installer. I've closed the report, but if m68k porters want to follow up on it, feel free to reopen and reassign. Cheers, FJP ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- Package: installation-reports Severity: normal INSTALL REPORT Debian-installer-version: Sarge official m68k CD uname -a: Linux nacho 2.4.27-amiga #1 Tue Aug 30 12:35:11 CEST 2005 m68k GNU/Linux Date: 2008-01-11 Method: Booted with StartInstall_clgen, slightly modified (added bootloader option to pass a different memory map to the kernel as one of my memory expansion cards does not work properly under Linux, and booted into init=/bin/sh to set up a swap partition before going into the installer.

Detect CD: [O] Load installer modules: [O] Detect hard drives: [O] Partition hard drives: [O] Create file systems: [O] Mount partitions: [O] Install base system: [O] Install boot loader: [-] There is no standard boot loader that can be installed from within Linux. Reboot: [O] Comments/Problems: Went really well for an installation on a system with only 16 MiB of (usable) RAM. It might be worthwhile to have a way of setting up some swap device before starting the full installer, so this can be done without any init=/bin/sh trick. -------------------------------------------------------
