No cp in sparc woody installation?
This is creepy.
I installed woody today on a sparcstation 10 using .../sun4cdm/tftpboot.img
from the US ftp mirror. (current -> 2.3.3-2001-05-18)
But it looks like there is no /bin/cp in the root filesystem when it
boots up, and I get this message: "cp: not found"
Hand-rolling a cp using cat gets me a little further, but then I
encounter warning messages about corrupt .deb files when I attempt to
As far as I can tell, this is a show-stopper, but I don't see any list
mention or bug report. Seems like missing /bin/cp is pretty big, so
perhaps I missed something. Sure seems like I remember installing
slink on sparc this way. But that was slink. Go figure. Slink less
b0rken than potato. *duck* :)

Any thoughts? Thanks.
