amd64 installter (Debian From Scratch)
Thank you John Goerzen for developping an image. I gave a spin to your image,
and found out your live CD is a small world itself. No wonder it occupies more
than 500MB! I tested it on the following machine.
Tyan Tiger K8W O O 2GB
Tyan Thunder K8W O E 2GB each total 4GB
The difference between 2 systems is M/B and memory size as I noted above. I
will send dmesg & lspci output of Thunder to John soon.
I myself am developping a live CD even after listening all advices. My current
32-bit kernel configuration is for dual CPU, memory of 2-4GB, and no ATA SCSI
because I have more than 15 partitons on SATA disk. All the kernel I have seen
set ATA SCSI option; thus I cannot see all SATA disk's partition on boot. Thus
I have been forced to develop one to install debian to SATA disk directly.
Thanks to Piotr, his comment reaffirm my impression. I have been also
suspicious about the performance of SATA. I got already 3 Seagate 160GB SATA
disks, and am planning to obtain some more 200GB SATA disks because I suspect
linux SATA driver is the one to be blamed not the hardware.
