Hello. I've been trying to get debian Sarge to install on a G5 XServe
with little success. I've looked around, and it seems like there are
no messages regarding this subject on this list, and no documentation
that seems to indicate it shouldn't work, or how to get it to work.
I downloaded the latest netinst daily build for sarge from
sarge-powerpc-netinst.iso, and it boots from the cd fine. However,
after I type "install-power4", or "expert-power4" it goes to an open
firmware screen and gives the following output:
Copying OF device tree...done
Initializing fake screen: VTXP
Returning 0x01400000 from prom_init
Then it freezes. Does debian install on the G5 XServe? Do I need to
do special things to make it work?
