Description mikec-w 2000-01-08 15:13:49 UTC
The installer seems to have a bug in that while installing on a Sparc
Station 2 it crashes. The kernel is fine, just the installer.
Text install reaches 'installing components' and then locks and graphical
install only goes as far as select install - i.e. kde workstation, gnome
workstation, etc.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-06-12 18:07:56 UTC
Is there any text or error messages on the first virtual console (hit
CNTL-ALT-F1)?

Comment 2 mikec-w 2000-06-13 10:14:31 UTC
None.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-09-14 16:24:17 UTC
SPARC is not a supported platform.
