Re: Report: success with debian 8.0 on C8000 via a console installation

The B180 and A500 should work without any issues as well.
If you want to give it a try though, it would be nice.

Currently it is installing on B180 (384M, SCSI, internal SCSI CD, network connected) - and again - nothing to report: it just installs (with internal video and keyboard) [also I have A4070 card, but could not get any output out of it nor from PDC, not from 11.11i, even it always get detected and seen by the system - will try it too].

If anyone interested (and if the installation finishs fine in a hour or so) I can post dmesg/lspci/whatever tomorrow.

Regarding the E25 I would be very interested.

That will be next thing I'll try and will surely brag about results.

The latest thing I've tried at C8000 was a kernel recompile: I installed hppa64 toolchain, some recent stable kernel from kernel.org, copied the C8000 .config, make menuconfig, told that I want 'new' SATA/IDE libata to build statically, as well ext2/ext4, excluded old IDE, and attempted to boot it without creating initrd, and expected it to boot. It linked but failed to boot [I have to attach serial console to see what really happens] - the question is - is that a right [or, saying, a possible] direction of making custom kernel to work on hppa or I have to deal with initrd?
