Re: uh oh fixed
Joerg Rieger helped out:
Personally I've never tried to make a Sparc Debian ISO image but I've
create serveral OpenBSD Sparc ISO images on an Intel machine and all
the CD's were bootable, so it works. :-)
> Here is a logfile:

perhabs here is the Sun ar command expected instead of GNU ar or isn't
installed at all or not in your path settings ?
Hello to the list and Joerg.
Yes, the ar command was truly missing.
binutils was installed, so it is a mystery.

I checked to see if binutils was installed and yes, it was.
The binutils was there during the machine's latest upgrade.
To remedy the situation
I settled on installing binutils-multiarch
because of my sparc CD task.
Then I saw all the new links it made and chickened out:
apt-get remove binutils-multiarch
Then the ar command showed up. Hmmm...
I guess it fixed the path or something.
The debian-cd works right to the end now.
A new set of sparc bootable CDs was made
from an ix86 machine.
Now we go and see if it is indeed bootable.
Thanks for making me search out the d@#$%# ar command.
Cheers, Bill Bennet
