Re: SGI Altix 350/3700 - 450/4700

Hi Anibal,

Some months ago I begun to try installing Debian etch on an Altix 350. It 
worked out by doing some changes that are explained on the link you found. I 
then informed the debian community and Dan Frazier made those changes on etch 
(I think there is only one thing left which is bug 408588).

Since then I never tried the official etch cd to see if everything is ok 
because I use the cd I created which is based on etch in December 2006 
This one boot and install whitout problem on our 350 and 3700 servers.

Two weeks ago, we received a 450 and I tried to boot the cd I'm talking about 
but it diden't worked (kernel crash when booting - but again, this is a 
december version). I will have a look at that in 2 or 3 weeks (I will also 
try the actual etch cd).

Hope this helps.
