Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-sparc64-smp
Severity: important


Note: the system used to submit this bug report is not representative of the target of this bug report!

Debian will not be installable on a Sun Logical Domain (ldom) unless there is support turned on in the kernel.

The vanilla kernel tree now has support for this in terms of:

# General machine setup
CONFIG_SUN_LDOMS=y

and

# Unsorted block images
CONFIG_SUNVDC=y

and

# MII PHY device drivers
CONFIG_SUNVNET=y

With these enabled, the install should work fine, but as it stands Debian does not enable these kernel options (and so blocks the install onto LDOMs for me from the lenny netboot image).

Many thanks,
Mike.
