Re: Bug#564150: Is Debian on PowerPC dead? [Re: Bug still present [Re: Bug#562575: installation-reports: Buisnesscard PowerPC installer loops with Segmentation faults]]


I ran the debian-installer in another tty and here is the output (I had to wrote it by hand due to a dhclient error)

~ # set -x
~# . /sbin/debian-installer

The only powerpc computer that I have (PS3) is the one that I'm trying to install :(

maybe Rick had other machines previously installed and he could run the cdebconf powerpc version.

Can you repro in a non-d-i environment with the non-udeb cdebconf? Or
maybe by unpacking the cdebconf udeb onto your system? Or by unpacking
an installer initrd and chrooting? (any of these will make debugging a
lot easier).

0.145 was r59369 in d-i svn and 0.146 was r61813 so I guess you could
have a poke/bisect through there. 59369-61813 includes lots of
non-cdebconf changes, and many of the cdebconf changes are l10n ones
which I reckon can be ignored on a first pass, leaving only around 20
actual commits, assuming 0.145 is ok.
