Installing Debian 3.0r1 Sparc on Sun Blade 100
I've been banging my head against a Sun Blade 100 running Sun OS
Release 5.8 Version Generic_108528-08 64-bit, with 256MB of RAM,
OpenBoot 4.0. I am trying to trash the the Solaris system currently
running on the machine and install Debain 3.0r1 - woody. I have
downloaded and burned the first three binary discs. After inserting
the first one I press "stop - a" to get to the ok prompt and then type
"boot cdrom" to boot from the CD. After booting from the cdrom I get
the following on my screen:
Welcome to Debian GNU/Linux 3.0!
<then some description and a disclaimer>
[ ENTER - Boot install ] [ type "rescue" - Boot into rescue mode ]
After determining that I want to install Debian, and not perform a
rescue I hit enter whereupon I get the following message:
Loading initial ramdisk....
Fast Data Access MMU Miss
and I'm back to the ok prompt. I can then type "cd" and it will take
me to a location that has choices such as memory@0,0, aliases, options,
etc. I have read that by typing in "limit-ecache-size" as a command I
can fix this problem. But this has not worked for me. Either I am
typing it to the wrong location or I have a different problem. If
anyone knows what my problem might be I would greatly appreciate any
and all help. Thanks very much.
