i would like to install debian on our sun blade 2500.

i'm able to netboot this image: http://people.debian.org/~stappers/d-i/images/daily/sparc64/netboot/2.6/boot.img

unfortunatly it does not find any harddrives. is there a module i could modprobe?

How about kernel 2.4.x? At least for the installation.

i've now tested the 2.4 netboot image.

it prints "Remapping kernel... done." and then the computers hangs :(

the same happens with teh sarge images (both 2.4 and 2.6...).

isn't there anyone who has installed debian on sparc IIIi??

Hi, I managed to install testing about 1.5 years ago on a SB1000. I used an install image from phunnypharm.org I found on the Debian site. Said image is too old to cooperate with an actual DI. I've tried to find out, what was the clue with it, but nobody seemed to know. If you look at the archives, there was another guy from Germany who installed testing via netboot - I tried to find out whih image he <em>exactly</em> had used, but he gave me a rather rough answer. (Maybe he misunderstood me, as I named him a "lucky bastard" for having Debian up and running on a Sunblade.) So there is for sure a a way to install but I could not find out, what exactly was special with these installers. After some unsuccessfull tries I decided to run Solaris 10 until there's a solution.
