Re: Newbie Install Question on Umax S900

During the initial install from the boot floppies there was never an option to choose a laptop installation. I did see the PCMCIA configuration dialog and disabled the PCMCIA item on that dialog, but still ran into the same errors as when I did not disable PCMCIA in that dialog.

Also, the CDs I got are the Debian 2.2 PPC cds fromCheapBytes. I ordered them around Christmas.

So we install PCMCIA stuff by default?  Did you request task-laptop?  I don't think that should be there at all.

termwrap?  Never seen it before.  In fact, no file with "termwrap" anywhere in it appears in potato, woody or unstable.

What CD is this that you got from cheapbytes?  Are you sure it's Debian, version 2.2R2?

The default kernel should be fine...  I have no idea what could be wrong, if you got a real Debian 2.2R2 CD...
