I am at a total loss.
I am trying to install debian etch 3.1r5 netinst .iso on a SunFire 880 w/ OBP version 4.18.2, scsi drives, and 4G of memory via serial console. Every time it gets to “Booting Linux…” it appears to hang or is just throwing the output somewhere else. I have tried the businesscard and full .iso as well and removed the Sun’s video card, but still to no avail. I have also tried a netboot with dhcpd and tftpd with “boot net:dhcp video=atyfb:off” and it still “hangs” at “Booting Linux…”. I even tired Ubuntu, but the same thing happens. I am going to try an older version of Debian to see if that might change anything, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
