Re: Can't boot
I took your advice and tried checking for bad blocks, but that
didn't seem to be the problem. After much playing around (mostly with
MacOS, since there was a problem that wouldn't let me boot debian or
linuxppc. But I digress...), I decided to copy my fsck and fsck.ext2 from
linuxppc into /sbin/ on the debian partition. This DID fix the problem
(it seems the fsck.ext2 binary that comes with debian is considerably
smaller than the one from linuxppc, for some reason).
However, I ran into a kernel panic later on into the boot process.
I'll try to summarize what it said:
Configuring serial ports, etc.
Machine check in kernel mode
Something about an mm fault
Lots of crap (numbers)
I'm not sure why this happens. Any suggestions? I'm using kernel
2.1.130, just in case that's meaningful to the problem. Thanks...
