Bug#405971: Installation report: works on SGI 02 (mips r5k-ip32)

It should not use lowmem mode with 64 MB RAM.  Can you please open a
shell in the installer and do:

ram=$(grep ^MemTotal: /proc/meminfo | { read x y z; echo $y; }) || true
ram=$(expr "$ram" / 1024)
echo $ram
cat /proc/meminfo

No, that's a different issue.  fdisk is used on all SGI machines
(regardless of how much RAM you have) because parted doesn't support
the SGI disklabel properly.
