Method: Netboot as described in Martin Michlmayr <email@example.com>'s May 6th
email to debian-mips. So, nfs/tftp netboot from my x86, then network
install through a squid cache on said x86.

I left the partitions intact from my old, broken, sid install. I had d-i
leave the /boot partition alone too, just to make sure it was in a form the
firmware could handle.

The install went really smoothly once I got the netboot setup properly.
One thing that might be neat is to update the LCD with install progress,
but it's not important and of debatable usefullness. A cdebconf frontend that
only uses the LCD and buttons would be nifty too and maybe even useable, but
Many thanks to Martin Michlmay (tbm) for making it work on the old Cobalt
equipment. He's my hero.

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful
The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet.
In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.
You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.
If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
