getting a working install ISOs on a T2000


I tried hard installing Debian/sparc64, it was not easy at all and haven't concluded.

The T2000 I started from had Linux already installed, with an older 4.x series kernel, I'd guess not updated since 3 years. It was working and was configured with SILO. I tried updating but the boot partition was too small to fit old and new kernels, also the (partially?) installed 5.x kernel on reboot entered in an endless loop of crashes I could not stop nor log.

Unfortunately the fresh install I did with one of the working ISOs suffers from the same crashes!

I then went on with snapshots, going back from the latest I found...

2020-11-16 -> this one worked! (but system is unbootable due to crash, of that in a second mail)

Later, all these die with in the same manner:

-- with 2021-01-03
