no init found (IP27)
I am trying to replace IRIX with Debian on my IP27 machine. I have
downloaded debian-31r0a-mips-netinst.iso, burned a CD on CD-RW which seems
this media type is not supported on my platform. So I downloaded the files
to my IRIX machine to a free xfs partition. Now, using the guide from
http://caradhras.ccslab.aueb.gr/index.html I am able to boot a kernel
image (which can be also downloaded from there). It recognizes all disks,
network card etc. but the kernel panices with
"No init found"
messsage. init=/bin/sh or init=/bin/bash passed as a kernel load parameter
does not work to.
Is there any chance to load the debian installer without the need of tftp
Thans in advance,
