Comments/Problems:

Using a VT420 console.  Boots from CDROM, starts SILO Version 1.4.13,
display welcome message (welcome to Debian GNU/Linux lenny! [...]
built on 20081218-10:06 [...]).

 boot:
 Allocated 8 Megs of memory at 0x40000000 for kernel
 Loaded kernel version 2.6.26
 Loading initial ramdisk (4284688 bytes at ....
 Memory Address not Aligned

Choosing "boot: rescue" or "boot: expert" gives the same.  The machine
boots SunOS 5.8 from its disk0 just fine, so the hardware apparently is
quite OK.

The machine has 2048 MB memory installed.  I'll try to collect output
from report-hw for this bugreport once I have found a working Linux
kernel for this machine.

Thanks for working on the Debian Installer!

Bye,

Joost

Which fails too.

On
http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.sparc/ch05s03.html#sparc-boot-problems
it says: "We recommend to install [SunBlade] systems by netbooting the
installer."

I am confident that'll work out fine: closing this bug.

Bye,

Joost
