Question about IBM pSeries p655 Server
Hello there! We are trying to install debian on a p655 over yaboot but encountered the following problem: first we set up a dhcpserver and a tftp server, the filename points to the yaboot binary in the tftp root. over the openfirmware prompt we see its getting the proper ip via dhcp, the gateway and stuff and the yaboot file, then the error occurs and it says something about unknown or corrupt filesystem. we thought it was because of a malformed device string to the tftp server but after trying almost all combinations quit trying. Has anyone ever installed debian on a p655 and knows how to setup the correct files? i used the files from: http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/dists/etch/main/installer-powerpc/current/images/powerpc64/netboot/ I think those are the right ones, but i think something within the configuration files is broken. greetings
Are you over thinking this? Have you checked the source and target media's file systems for 1: errors and 2: suitability of file system format? Have you confirmed the integrity of the source files? Questions like this can seem simplistic but when diagnosing any problem always start at the beginning. You are using an distro installer that is suitable for an IBM p655's architecture.
