Re: Powerpc netinst CD when selected install64 installs only powerpc not powerpc64 kernel image!



(Dropping debian-cd as this is not really an issue for them.)

I'm afraid I cannot help you with repairing your current install as I'm 
not familiar with powerpc, but I would like to try to find out why the 
wrong kernel was installed.

Exactly what netinst image were you using? Official Etch or a daily build? 
Please give the full URL of the image you used.

AFAICT, the powerpc64 should be included on the netinst CD. Could you 
verify that it is? It should be in /cdrom/pool/main/l/linux-2.6.

If it is there, could you send us the syslog for the installation? You can 
find it /var/log/installer on the installed system. Please send it 
gzipped!

Cheers,
FJP
