Re: Debian 6.0 installation on SGI O2

Hi Tom!

Well, I tried another approach: I installed Debian Lenny.
It did the trick. It seems to me that there's something related to the kernel (or maybe this recent kernel and my hardware).

By the way, I have little time to spend on my O2, so I'm happy with it!

I would suggest connecting via a serial cable and seeing what shows up on the console.
