>From images at http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian-cd/hppa/

debian-8.0/lifimage 13.8M
lifimage 13.2M
lifimage.latest 13.2M
lifimage.old 19.1M

only lifimage.old is able to boot on a subject machine. Other bring it
into an endless "HP SDC: Transaction add failed: transaction already
queued ?" print loop. Sure the installation was still possible via
that lifimage.old with some tinkering, but how long it will be hosted,
and how long it will be suitable?

Looking at the image sizes... Perhaps something ramdisk size related?
Is it a way to fix, or what is the current workaround method for
loading other images?

Quite related ancient bug:
