Re: Bug#334609: Installation Report: Sunblade 150 netboot - SUCCEDEED!

testing the daily build 2005-10-25 I noticed ide-cd module returns

I'm starting to think it is a kernel problem for both issues: ide-cd
(I'm not the only one who encounters this obstacle) and FB issue. It
seems the latest kernel that works regarding the FB is the 2.6.8 (but
still no ide-cd module working). I was thinking about trying with a
vanilla but it's not debian patched yet... are there any
problems if I debianize a vanilla and put it into the netboot image?

Hi Riccardo,

The FB problem has been reported a while ago as the bug #321200. There was a bunch of changes which broke it, so I could not figure it out myself and forwarded the problem upstream. There has been no reaction so far.

If you want to try newer kernel, there are kernel debs available for 2.6.13, see my message [0] and followups. I am in the process of building the debs for 2.6.14-rc5 which was uploaded to experimental yesterday, but due to various hardware issues it will probably take another couple of days.
