I will try to do a fresh install as a test also .
I was just able to update my current installation .

As far as I remember I never had to edit the repositories.


I was also able to update my current installation today and I also never had to edit the repositories.

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

The correct mirror ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports is auto selected by the preseed script in the X5000 ramdisk .
So it should not mater if you do a base install or a full install .

right am back to the hard disk for the time being, ill sort out the SSD/SATA controller issue another time but...... this time i have another issue and the same as the one Caseycullen has reported for PPC64 Debian 9/Sid

using the new installer i can install the first bit after partitioning, however i cant seem to download anything from the package manager. It asks me to configure the package manager manually so i have literally spent the past hour or so going through every address on this list

https://www.debian.org/mirror/list

i am assuming that where you enter mirror hostname it is along the lines of ftp.ports.debian.org and when prompted for the debian archive mirror directory it will be along the lines of /debian/ as on the list or /debian-ports/ as per Julian's suggestion.

with the ftp.ports.debian.org hostname i get the installer failed to access the mirror this may be a problem with your network or with the mirror

with all the other mirrors it says the architecture is not supported

suffice to say if i bypass this i only get the very basic package which loads into bash and i cant seem to do any sudo apt-get update or much else.


any ideas here what can be done? :-)

current kernel assuming this makes a difference 4.14.15

Just press the "enter" key when the installer asks for a mirror .
It will take the correct mirror for the preseed file .
Simple as that :D

Have added the info above under the download links in bold type .

Installation went smoothly.
So only extra thing required is to just press the enter key when the request for a mirror comes up instead of trying to enter a mirror.

How much data need to be downloaded if you install Debian 9 PPC64 with the netinstaller CD?

The new iso and uRamdisk worked; thanks so much!
Do I need to install firmware for hardware accelleration or create an xorg? Its a Radeon HD6870 so hardware accelleration should work...

@caseycullen

Best option to enable the hardware acceleration and still have the option to boot with a Radeon SI card if needed is to
rename /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so.bak .
also /etc/X11/xorg.conf should be removed or renamed to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak .
This allows the Xorg server to automatically handle the configuration .


Code: Select all
    sudo mv '/usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so' '/usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so.bak'
    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
