Re: Update Debian Ports installation images 2021-04-14

Hello Michael.

Yes, that was the reason. Automatic partitioning already does it like that, as Adrian told me. aboot partition must be the first slice as you said, and with 1.0 MB is enough (I forgot these details). All done. Now I'm dusting off other machines like Alphaserver DS10L (21264) and AlphaPC LX164 (21164) to test Debian releases on them again.

Very grateful for your great work for the Alpha architecture.

As far as i remember, aboot needs ext2 partition. Well, I have created a
10GB partition with ext2 for it, but always I get the same message like
aboot needs more disk space. More than 10GB for a tiny aboot code? I don't
think so.

When I installed older versions, never saw this problem.
That's really strange. Did you try automatic partitioning? I installed on my
XP1000 using the new images and didn't see that problem. I'm curious why you're
getting this message. The installation log from /var/log/syslog would be helpful.
I wonder if you partitioned from the start of the disk? aboot must
go at the start of the boot disk so some space must be left at the
start before the first partition.  I wonder if that is the problem?
