Bug#147841: Alphaserver 2100 5/250
model: Alphaserver 2100 5/250
network card: DEC based
I have tried using the rescue floppy from this version, and the testing
cdrom install (downloaded on 5/22/02) to try to install Debian on this
computer. It has 4 CPUs and a 4G hard drive that is recognised by SRM. I
have tried booting the system from both media without success.
When booting from the floppy (using "boot dva0 -fl 0") I get several
messages that look fine then:
aboot: loading compressed linux.gz...
aboot: segment 0, 2898128 bytes at 0xfffffc0000310000
aboot: zero-filling 2898128 bytes at 0xfffffc00005d38d0
aboot: starting kernel linux.gz with arguements ro root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1
halted CPU 0
halt code = 6
double error halt
PC = 200000000
I am then dropped back to my SRM prompt. Note: the screen flickers black
(then possibly red, but that may just be my imagination) between the last
aboot line and the halted CPU 0 line.
The rescue.bin that I downloaded was from
I also tried the rescue.bin from
even though I didn't expect for it to work (it had the same result and
output as the other disk).
I have searched through google and I have still been unable to find
anything. Is there a solution or will debian not work on this system?
