Package: base
Version: N/A; reported 2000-03-28
Severity: critical

I can't use bootdisks-i386 2.2.8-2000-03-09 with 8 MB of memory.
The rescue disk boots OK, but after unpacking the root disk the
boot process stops with following error message:

VFS: Insert root floppy disk to be loaded into RAM disk and press ENTER
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 140k freed
modprobe: modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.2.14/modules.de
 (No such file or directory)
modprobe: modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.2.14/modules.de
 (No such file or directory)
init started:  BusyBox v0.43 (20000309-0030) multi-call binary
Sorry, your computer does not have enough memory.

The low-memory rescue disk doesn't even boot in 486SX because it
depends on co-processor.  El cheepo machines with extremely low memory
rarely have one.  I'd suggest you should configure the low-memory kernel
to support also machines with no co-processor.

We believe that the bug you reported has been fixed in the potato
boot-floppies, version 2.2.9 or higher.

Thank you for your bug report.

We encourage you to test the potato boot-floppies on your system.  If
your problem persists, please either respond to debian-boot and CC

Many problems are cause by other packages from Potato, such as
makedev, modconf, etc.  Bugs against those should be filed against
those packages.
