Re: Installing pure64 from scratch
I have done this but when I boot, it starts running init scripts and
gets through cron, but then no login comes up! Eventually the runlevel
kills itself for lack of having any running programs (?)
The interesting thing is that on my Gentoo AMD64 I can only chroot
into the debian pure64 when it is still in the folder it extracts into
by default. But, when I copy it to my /mnt/debian64 partition, chroot
tells me that I can't run /bin/sh because I don't have permissions.
Could this be related to why this same partition dies on boot?
1. Install a distro that supports AMD64 (Red Hat, Fedora, SuSE).
2. Install the chrooted pure64 port on a separate partition.
3. Compile a 64-bit kernel deb or just use the kernel from the other
4. Setup lilo or grub to use the separate Debian partition as the root
Not ideal, but it should work.
If my explanation hasn't been sufficiently clear, please let me know so
I can give you more details.
