Re: M68K status
Out of curiosity: Why aren't you installing an up-to-date Debian
unstable on your Amiga?
I don't see any point trying to debug issues which might have already
beem fixed years ago.
I mean, kernel 2.4.x is almost historic these days and both Sarge and
Etch are just way too old to start worrying about them now.
I just find it interesting that the kernels all seem to hang at the same
point whenever I start them from the Workbench. I think I tried the
latest one from the wiki page over the weekend and it did the same
thing. I would like to figure out why, so I don't have to go through a
convoluted startup process to run Debian. Can you quickly explain how to
Just take the disk out of your Amiga and use debootstrap with the
--foreign option to install a current unstable snapshot onto the disk.
Then boot the system with a more recent kernel.
You can also find a base system plus kernel and initrd here:
Thanks for the tips. I wasn't aware that it could be installed that way.
I'm not super-familiar with Debian, I've only used it and Ubuntu a few
times in the past. I'm more familiar and comfortable with Fedora/Redhat
and the RPM package system. I'll have to get another larger hard drive
for my spare PC and install Debian on a partition to give that a try.
