Bug#352765: Successfull Etch install on a Multia
As a last check for today, I gave the installer a go on an
AlphaStation 255/233 (Avanti).
00:0e.0 0200: 1011:0002 (rev 26)
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr+ Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
Status: Cap- 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 15
Region 0: I/O ports at 8400 [size=128]
Region 1: Memory at 01209000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128]
On this machine, de2104x runs perfectly, and get the right ethernet
So in the de4x5 vs de2104x match, de4x5 wins by 2 to 1 on my sample of
3 old Alpha systems. My vote is clearly for the inclusion of de4x5 in
the installer, even if it is disabled by default.
And if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there...
