I’ve just spent the last week reading through the archives and trying various methods to get debian on my Sunblade 1500.
At this point I have still not succeeded, but am getting closer.
I read through May’s (May 2004) list and came across two mini-iso images that I was finally able to boot from without initrd issues.
--Boots, but Kernel Panic on mounting rootfs.
--Makes it through initrd, but when loading kernel it reboots.
I have tried appending the rootfstype=ext2 option to the first iso, but it doesn’t seem to make a difference. I was wondering if there was any more information on this issue, or if a novice like myself could be of any assistance to the folks that are working on this.
