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
as well?



Whenever you meet yourself you're in a time loop or in front of a mirror.
