Me too. Debian installer would present me with a lot of peculiar erros,
and the system was very un{stable|usable}.

Unfortunately, despite the good intentions and work of the people
involved, Debian - or any other free / open source system - in the O2
seems to be *that* experimental, up to the state of 'unusable'. I believe
NetBSD is also 'experimentally supported' in the O2, and I suspect it is
at the same state, although I have not tried it. Which is a pity because I
don't really like IRIX and I really like the O2. :-)

I personally tried hard enough for my experience and knowledge, and gave
up.

I'm left wondering though, has anyone got to a usable state in an O2? What
are your experiences?
