Re: Kernel unaligned access : daily-build 20070221 / kernel 2.6.18-4 / sparc netra X1



First, thank you for the answer.

To complete, after launching dhcp, i get the IP adress, but
the rest of installer failed. I cant't fetch the Web Repository.

here is my hardware conf ( sparc netraX1)

cat /proc/cpuinfo
