Re: debian-mipsel installed on a Cobalt Qube2

So then, Karsten Merker <karsten@excalibur.cologne.de> is all like:

Ah, it's a Qube 2 then.  This uses a different boot loader than the Qube
2700, so your kernel probably won't work either.

Don't bother on my account--anything you build is unlikely to be
significantly different from what I built.  I don't think kernel size is
the issue, I think it's just a really old boot loader.

Thinking out loud here, shouldn't it be possible to pull in the Qube's
boot instructions on a running Qube?  Then you could go over it in a
debugger and see what it expects for a kernel.

Doing that might be illegal in the US, though.  *sigh*
