I'm new to debian and sparc. I'm trying to install Debian on my SunBlade
100, but I'm stuck at the end of the first part of the installation process.
I netboot the sun on a freebsd server using the current tftpboot.imp of
Ben Collins. The installation starts without problem. I use the
following partition sheme on the hard disk:
I use the network installation.
I add the following module to the kernel : autofs, nfsd, isofs.
All the download process goes well until it tries to install the
packages. It stops with the following message on the screen: Installing
At this stage the machine is completely frozen and I have to cold boot.
As I guess you are trying to install woody, because I had the same error
as I tried to install woody on my ultra10.
I actually installing potato and then updating to woody, which causes a
lot of trouble. By the way if you are going to install potato and the
machine is not booting after you have installed - try
"/vmlinuz-2.2.19-sun4u" at the openprom instead of "/vmlinuz"
I've tried to put the whole disk type (5) on hda3 : same result.
I've tried not to include modules in the kernel : same result.
I've tried both distribution : test and unstable : same result.
Apparently, if I restart the machine and I try the option Make Hard Disk
Bootable, it tells me that it cannot install SILO.
Thank you all for your help.
