Debian install problems
I installed debian on my SGI Indy r5k and had a few problems. The problems
existed when I installed from the base2.2.tar.gz and after I did an apt-get
dist-upgrade to the latest packages. I found a few files that when I tried to
exec them they gave me the error "Illegal instruction". I tried reinstalling
the packages by hand etc without any luck. I just copied binaries from another
rootfs that I had working from quite awhile back. The programs I found that
errored were ls, tar, sleep, and find. I have included the package versions and
libc6 version. I also have put my kernel info. Thanks.
