Re: sparc32 etch status
Robert Reif napsal(a):
I'm trying to install etch on all my sun4m machines. My first attempt
using a netinst CD didn't work because of the esp CD problem.
Installing stable and then upgrading didn't work because I couldn't
configure apt because of gpg errors. I set up an LX running woody to
netboot from and was able to get an ss20 working without problems.
However I was unable to get a ss670mp and an ss5 working. The ss670mp
wasn't able to download from the internet. I tried the onboard le, an
sbus le and an sbus hme with the same results. It just couldn't connect
to a server. The ss5 would connect to the server but would hang when
probing the esp. I could try installing the driver manually like on
stable but that wasn't necessary on the ss20. I'm trying to install on
an LX and it connects to the server and probes the drive successfully
but requires a low memory install. I also have an ss10 and a Classic X
I'm willing to test software or give more details if it would help.
I have SS5 and install stable over netboot without problem with esp. I
have only small problem with partitioning disk because auto mode does'nt
work and with net install I cannot spawn shell to correct problem.
