powermac/images-2.88/rescue.bin not found
So the debian installer detected my new 12" Powerbook's
ATA 100 HD once I downloaded the BK devel kernel from
and renamed /boot/vmlinux-2.6.11-rc4 to linux.bin and put
it in the debian partition.
But now the installation is stuck at fetching the kernel
and drivers over the network. (Trying the 1st installation
CD doesn't work either.) My network connection is fine,
but it is looking for files:
powermac/drivers.tgz when there is no such directory in
the debian tree.
The images-2.88 dir is only in "new-powermac" directories
and in "powermac" dirs there is only "images-1.44". The
installer is hard-wired to look for a directory named
"powermac" though and not "new-powermac".
I tried setting up my own local mirror and changed the
directory names to "powermac" so that the installer would
download various rescue.bin files, and while it does
download them, it then says that this is not a rescue
floppy and won't proceed.
So, I'm stuck. Any thoughts on what rescue.bin file and
what drivers.tgz the installer is looking for and how I
could provide them to the installer? Thanks
