Bug#302700: Report Sarge Installer RC3 on HPPA
ramdisk_size=16384 is what is loaded on the kernel boot paramter line as
default. It does not work. I have increased this value to ramdisk_size=32768.
It did also fail with the same symptoms.
In the meantime I have repeated the tests on a 712/100 I have at work. That
machine behaves the sane: It only successfully boots using 40960 as the
I have more issues: using X on these machines is not possible (the mouse does
not work, despite using a good working configuration from a Debian 3.0 HPPA
installation on the same machine 712/100). I will do a follow up debug report
after doing some more trying.
