Re: installing Woody on 8100/80

Hi Hendrik

I am still relatively new to all this and although I've learnt quite a lot, I'm probably not the best person to help ;-) One of the reasons I did those notes was because I found it incredibly difficult to get going and thought it might help others.

Although I could make some suggestions they may be more misleading than helpful.

I am copying this to debian-powerpc@lists.debian.org - the folks are pretty helpful and Ekato and Dylan both monitor this list (I think).

Remember, yours is a NuBus Mac and that you're using the special Mach_Kernel. Your machine (and other Nubus macs) and Debian installation are very different to what most people have ;-)

Good luck

Hi Clive,

I found your page on the internet. I looks very decent to me. I downloaded the kernel from Ekato's machine and booted into Linux. The console comes up, and a lot flashes by. So far so good. However, after that, by screen turns black (well not exactly black, but like in screensaver mode). Do you have an idea what is going on here?

thanks, Hendrik
