Re: Trouble Installing Debian 3.0r1 on a Sunblade 150

I used loadlin on my x86 system years ago when I had some boot problems (kernel 2.0.x). Would it be posible to boot Linux if you're in Solaris?

Odd, at that point it should boot into the Debian Installer. The lost

The thread
suggests that the lost interrupt errors are due to a PROM version on the SB150's
that's too new.  However, the PROM downgrade procedure for the SB100's will
apparently wreck an SB150.

Do you know if there's a kernel initiative to look into this problem?

Haven't heard of anything. Either you can attempt to look into it
yourself, or wait for a SPARC developer like myself to run across an
SB150 to work on.
