I'm new to the list and I would like to give a try to the debian distrib.
Where can I download the _latest_ base package set ? I tried making a
filesystem with a base downloaded from an URL on this list recent
archives (sorry, I don't remember which site it was) but after making an
fstab, removing unconfigured.sh and adding the missing /dev/sda9 and
booting in with kernel 2.1.129, I got an e2fsck error about file system
I suggest you try the ramdisk image from
<http://www.debian.org/%7Eespy/ramdisk.image.gz>, along with the base
tarball from dists/sid/main/disks-powerpc/188.8.131.52_1998-10-15/base2_1.tgz
with BootX (I can't thank you enough for that, BTW, when I used to boot
with OF I would get an extremely flaky machine under Linux (something video
related)). I have booted that image, but it is not very tested yet.
