I have copied the Debian 5.0.6 ISO and began installing this to a SPARC V240 server.
However almost at the end of the install and an error occurs ‘The Silo package failed to install into /target, installing SILO as a boot loader is a required step’
I have searched forums with a resolution to this error, without joy.
Forums suggest that the first partition must be an ext2 or ext3 and it should be mounted as /boot.
The partitioned disks on the server currently look like this;
#1 98.7MB F EXT3 /BOOT
#2 34.7GB F EXT3 /
#4 1.6GB F SWAP SWAP
Can you suggest how to resolve this issue? Is it something with my partitioned disks that needs to be changed?
