That's probably this one:
pleaseWaitBox(_("Running QUIK to make the kernel able to boot from the hard disk without a boot floppy..."));
or this one?
problemBox(_("Installing QUIK is not yet possible for Debian/PowerPC"),
After that the config file gets written (/etc/quik.conf, iirc) and
quik gets executed:
"export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=\"/target/lib:/target/usr/lib\"; /target/sbin/quik -f -r /target >/dev/null"
Is there something wrong?
Could you run that command from the 2nd console and see if that fails
Whenever you meet yourself you're in a time loop or in front of a mirror.
