[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


I burned a CD from sarge-sparc-netinst.iso, then booted with "boot cdrom" on the SPARC.
During initial boot the system enters an infinite loop. The last "good" lines printed are:

Mounted devfs on /dev
Freeing unused kernel memory: 132k freed

Then the loop starts:

01:00 rw=0, want=4105, limit=4096
attempt to access beyond end of device

These messages are repeated with different values for "want=", like 4097, 4098, 4099, ..., 4105.

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
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
