Install boot loader:    [E]
Reboot:                 [E]

I could not install boot loader, because formated my drive with ext3 and quik
doesnt support it. Should be a warning earlier in install process to use ext2
with quik.

Comments/Problems:

After the step to install without boot loader the system should ask to reboot
and not do it automatic.
Chrooted later from other system installed quik on ext3 and created quik.conf.
Updated my openfirmware settings with nvsetenv to boot from scsi-int.
Then booted into new debian sarge all configs went okay.

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

Hi,

when installing powerpc, the default filesys is ext3 (which i think is a
good default), but later on the quix installation fails for it needs at
least a /boot in ext2 format. Thus going back to partitioning and
creating a /boot in ext2. Now the partitions are reformatted, but the
d-i goes back to quix installation (skipping over bootstrapping), and
quix fails again for there is no system in /target anymore.

Either the quix should learn to cope with ext3 or the partitioning
should be telling you, that at least one ext2 is needed.

Anyway, the d-i should again bootstrap the new partitions after voiding
their contents instead of skipping all the way forward again.

Reboot:                 [E]

Comments/Problems:

The install went fine - the only remaining problem is dealing with quiks
quirks with this model (see
http://penguinppc.org/bootloaders/quik/quirks.php)

I used these commands to make my machine boot.

nvsetenv boot-device     ata/ata-disk@0:0
nvsetenv boot-file       ata/ata-disk@0:0/boot/vmlinux-2.4.27-powerpc
nvsetenv input-device    kbd
nvsetenv output-device   screen
nvsetenv boot-command    boot

It should be possible to deal with some of quiks quirks by detecting the
machine type based on /proc/cpuinfo (combination of "cpu", "detected as" and
possible others should be sufficient - we "only" would need to collect that
data..), based on this the nvram could be set to the right values in quiks
postinst.


regards,
 Holger

Package: quik

Version unknown - from sarge-powerpc-netinst.iso rc2

Apologies for the lack of the exact message but during the install, when
installing quik I got a red screen saying "Failed to symlink to valid
kernel ..... symlink /vmlinuz or /bootvmlinuz isn't linked to a valid
kernel"

Upshot - quik fails to install.

This is on a beige G3 266Mz - I've never been able to get quik working
on this box.  Reverting to BootX

Regards

Clive
