Help with a PS/2 installation (.91 Beta)
I am trying to install Linux on a PS/2 model 70
with a Token ring card.
I have found a Debian .91 Beta release (patched) that will
reconize the PS/2's ESDI drive. However, I cannot
get any of the packages found on ftp.debian.org
When I do dpkg --add includes-1.2.13-5 for example, I
dpkg: there is no description for the package includes-1.2.13-5
Approximate uncompressed size: bytes.
dpkg: includes-1.2.13-5 is not an installed package.
I believe that my old dpkg and lack of a dselect program is
causing the packages not to load (I really need g++ installed).
Can I ftp a new version of dpkg and/or dselect?
I tried compling the source of dpkg-1.0.5.tar.gz on
another 386 running g++ 2.4 libc.so 4.5.26 and Linux 1.1.54 but
I got complier errors.
NOTE- I could not get the new version of Debian to install.
Any help or advice would be very much appreciated. This
is probably the only hope that I have of getting Linux
installed on my PS/2.
