installing Sarge (Debian 3.1r7) on Amiga 4000T
>> Try adding
console=tty to the kernel args?
Tried, now in dmesg it doesn't
complain about not being able to use a console, but still I can't read
any information on video.

The screen goes grey, then after a while a part of it changes and
become black, so I have almost half screen grey and half black.
have an Amiga 1200, so that's AGA, just like the 4000. What kind of
monitor do you have? Do you pass > any video mode option?
option are passed, except the no-debian-framebuffer one. On A4000T I
have a Picasso IV connected to a standard SVGA monitor, tehe issue is
both when using AGA or "clgen" install script.
I suppose that 2.6.23
kernel works fine on my A1200 because I am using it after an
installation done with 2.4.27 so it finds the right console. Will try
to start installation on A1200 using 2.6.24 and see if the behaviour is
the same as on A4000T or not.
