Package: installation-reports

sarge-powerpc-netinst.iso      18-Jul-2004 22:56   206M

uname -a: 2.6.7 kernel 

Date: 20 July 2004 circa 10am BST

Method: Installed BootX 1.2.2 from http://penguinppc.org/projects/bootx/ 
copied 2.6 initrd.gz and vmlinuz from d-i CD to "Linux Kernels" in the
MacOS System Folder
Configured Bootx to boot from the RamDisk (initrd.gz in the System
Folder) and hey presto the sarge installer appeared ;) 
This didn't work in tc1 - so well done guys!


Machine: PowerMac G3 Beige (old world)
Processor: 266MHz Processor
Memory: 96Mb

Output of lspci:

	Base System Installation Checklist:

	Initial boot worked:    [O]
	Configure network HW:   [E] didn't auto detect the ethernet card
	and couldn't see an appropriate driver on the list provided

	Install boot loader:    [ ] 
	Reboot:                 [ ]
	[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try


It's great that BootX will now boot the 2.6.7 version of the installer.
If I can get a driver for the ethernet card then I can test out all the
other wonderful stuff ;)

I messed around trying to detect the drivers from the tc1 CD but that
didn't get me anywhere
