Yes I know, but up to the point, where I asked Gregor to provide more
details about the problems he experienced, you didn't report a problem
at all. Or am I missing something?
I tried installing the NETINST.iso and also had a problem. The U10
has an HP DVD drive in it. The install CD seemed to load ok and the
installer started. When it got to the detecting hardware function it
decided that no cdrom drive was installed and would not proceed. I am
going to install the original Sun cdrom drive and try again when I
In addition to the information Adrian asked for, it could be
interesting to know, to which IDE channel your CDROM drive is attached
and how it is configured (Master, Slave, Cable select).
The CDROM drive in my Ultra 10 is attached to IDE channel #2 (the IDE
port farer away from the CPU) and configured as Master device.
And I just now tested with the ISO in question (from 20180516-18:22)
and didn't recognize an issue. Sure, hardware detection takes long on
the Ultra 10, but it eventually succeeds and the CDROM drive is
The MB has only three connectors: floppy, IDE HD and IDE cdrom. I
changed the DVD drive jumper from cable select to master but the
installer still could not find it. Whatever loaded the installer
program didn't have any problem using the drive.
I don't know how to provide the files Adrian asked for. I exited the
installer to a shell prompt. I could manually configure the network and
use ftp but ftp and ifupdown are not there and I don't know how to use
what is there to configure it. The U10 has a USB pci board and the
usb-list command shows a usb stick plugged in but I don't know how to
get it functional. The list-devices usb-partition reports /dev/sdb1.
The mountmedia command reports several repetitions of:
mount: mounting /dev/sdb1 on /media failed: Invalid argument
umount: can't unmount /media: Invalid argument
The only other thing I can think of is to send the files out the serial
port and capture them on another computer. I am drowning in other
things to do right now but if there are no easier suggestions I will do it.
