Debian ia64 install debootstrap problems
Hi, I have a Compaq Proliant dl590/64 computer that until recently ran
mandrake linux 8.1 (ia64 of course). I have tried installing
using both the debian stable netinst (from
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/3.1_r0a/ia64/iso-cd/) and the
debian 'testing' businesscard cd. The installer works fine until
I get to the 'Install debian base system' (debootstrap) where I come
upon various errors about packages not installing, notably netbase, at,
and the exim4 bundle.
The end of /var/log/messages reads:
"/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/disc: open failed: Input/output error
No matching physical volumes found"
My logical hard drive is listed in /dev/ida/..., and my cdrom drive is listed in /dev/cdroms/cdrom
I have tried editing /usr/lib/debootstrap/scripts/sarge to remove the
names of the packages that fail to install, but eventually I run into
more errors, again listed in /var/log/messages about umount /dev/shm
failing and umount /proc/bus/usb failing.
