Re: Jensen DECPC150 install!

Hi Patrick!
I am not running debian on my jensen (yet). But some things apply to all

Why don't you put the kernel on a floppy disk and use copyboot to put it
on your hd. Yes, that is quite painful, but that's the way of the
jensen... (ftp.lur.rwth-aachen.de/pub/jensen/jensen3.img contains an
unpatched 2.2.12 kernel for jensens and the required aboot, it's ready
to be 'copybooted'). I do not know whether slink does work with the 2.2
series of kernels though (could someone who knows confirm that).

Well so it seems. Aboot, while being an useful and able program, is not
precise in regard to it's error messages (read: this error condition
could be caused by an unknown compression method OR by something else)

Good luck
