Re: uh oh
Hello to all you folks who know more than me.
I used today's cvs
The mirror passed the mirror check real good.
I am using a ix86 machine to make a bootable sparc CD set.
(I have nothing sparc-like in there, this is an ix86 machine)
I am hoping that the archive has these sparc parts.
I am hoping that I can make a sparc bootable CD on an ix86 machine.
Here is a logfile:
Apt-get is updating his files ...
Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
Adding the required directories to the binary CDs ...
Generating the binary CD labels and their volume ids ...
Adding disks-sparc stuff ...
Adding the documentation (bin) ...
Adding install tools and documentation ...
Making the binary CDs bootable ...
Running tools/boot/woody/boot-sparc 1 /mnt/tmp/woody-sparc/CD1
/mnt/cvs/debian-cd/tools/boot/woody/boot-sparc: ar: command not found
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: ./boot/cd.b: Not found in archive
tar: ./boot/second.b: Not found in archive

Running tools/boot/woody/boot-sparc 6 /mnt/tmp/woody-sparc/CD6
Running tools/boot/woody/boot-sparc 7 /mnt/tmp/woody-sparc/CD7
and then it goes on to try mkisofs for the CD1
and then of course, it says "
Uh oh, I cant find the SILO bootblock!
make: *** [bin-images] Error 1
no cd.b, no second.b
silo stuff is not found.
Can a sparc bootable CD be made from an ix86 machine?
Cheers, Bill Bennet
