Using new Debian-Installer on oldworld PowerMac 9500
I'm currently trying to install sarge via the new debian-installer on a
PowerMac 9500 (200MHz, 2 Gig SCSI disk, 128MB RAM). I tried several
floppy-images from http://people.debian.org/~luther/d-i/images/, here a
./2004-08-22/powerpc-small/floppy/boot.img: Smiling-Mac-icon, then
the Mac-tux-icon and floppy-activity. Then the screen gets black except
the tux in the middle, which now has (I think) inverted colors and the
monitor goes into standby (using an ATI Mach64). Using a Mac Picasso 520
nothing happens on screen, only the floppy stops working.
./2004-08-22/powerpc-small/floppy/ofonlyboot.img: Smiling-Mac-icon, then
the Mac-tux-icon and floppy-activity. Sometimes the screen gets black except
the tux in the middle, which now has (I think) inverted colors. Finally
the floppy comes out. Inserting the root-floppy and pressing enter
initiates again floppy-activity, but I can't see anything :(
./2004-08-22/powerpc/floppy/boot.img: Gives a red-crossed tux
./2004-08-22/powerpc/floppy/ofonlyboot.img: Also gives a red-crossed tux
Am I running into floppy-errors or is sarge on a PowerMac 9500 not yet
Whats the difference between boot.img and ofonlyboot.img?
PS: woody (2.2.20 & 2.4.18) runs fine on that machine...
