Etch install on A1200. Floating point exception
I thought I'd give Debian a go on my Amiga A1200 (with 68030 CPU/MMU,
68882 FPU & 32MB RAM).
I downloaded a kernel (kernels/vmlinuz-2.6.24-1-amiga) and initrd
Transferred (the decompressed) kernel and initrd to my A1200 and booted
amiboot -d -k vmlinuz-2.6.24-1-amiga -r initrd.gz root=/dev/ram video=pal
And my A1200 booted into the installer. (I am impressed!)
The installer proceeds in low memory mode, I select region then country
and reach the "Detecting hardware to find drives" screen. Once the
progress bar completes I get a blank blue screen, and after a minute or
so the message "Floating point exception" is displayed
/sbin/debian-installer exits, init restarts it and the "Detecting
hardware to find drives" is repeated. This loops around and around and
blocks the install.
I suspect my problem is caused by my choice of kernel and initrd coming
from a "daily" directory. So my question is:
Q) Am I using the correct kernel+initrd / install procedure to install
Etch on my A1200?
