Re: Partitioning fails on a Sparc Ultra5 with Debian Lenny

Hi all,

I am attempting to install Debian Linux on a Sparc Ultra5. For my own
convenience I'm using netboot over TFTP images to install this
machine, however I've been consistently running into problems
partitioning the disks I have available.

I don't know to what extent this will help, but the one thing I can say is that I've got Lenny running reliably on a U10 installed from CD. I think that the hardware's very similar to what's in a U5, but I can't check at the moment due to pressure of other commitments.

I do have a vague recollection that on some systems I had to set the disc up in another machine, but I don't think it was a U10.
