Re: Updated debian-installer images
I just today tested the current sparc64 installer image () on my
The installation went through without an issue:
* network interfaces are named `enp9s4f0` (0), `enp9s4f1` (1),
`enp12s4f0` (2?), `enp12s4f1` (3?) on the V245. I only tested with
interface #0, so I'm unsure if interfaces #2 and #3 correspond to the
markings on the case in the correct order. #0 and hence also #1 seem to,
* the active network interface is automatically pre-selected by the
* no red screen after starting the "Select and install software" step
...up until it's time to install the boot loader, which does not succeed
or isn't even tried:
[!] Continue without boot loader
No boot loader installed
No boot loader has been installed, either because you chose not to or
because your specific architecture doesn't support a boot loader yet.
You will need to boot manually with the /vmlinuz kernel on partition
/dev/sda1 and root=/dev/sda2 passed as a kernel argument.
When returning to the installer menu, the only menu item related to the
boot loader installation is called "Continue without boot loader" - even
when using the "expert install" option of the boot menu. I tried both
with and without separate partition for `/boot` and with EXT2 and EXT3
for this partition but that didn't change anything.
Starting a shell, the `silo` command is nowhere to be found.
Any idea, what could be wrong?
