This is an odd one.
I've an ultra 10, freshly installed with debian. I tryed redhat during
the week, only they don't have a net install just yet.
Debian works, mostly. The install process was a little flaky (turns out
that the network cable was dodgy, and ever so often I'd touch it, and the
network would go down for a second - enough to throw off the installer),
but got me there in the end. I was surprised that it wouldn't setup the
PROM - all I needed to do was "setenv boot-device disk0:0" and it worked.
Anyway. Now, when it runs "loadkeys", I'm getting a kernel panic. Same
thing happened some guy a year and a half ago, and it looks like he never
found a solution. Does anyone know how that could happen, and if I really
need to run loadkeys ? I assume that'd leave me with a manky US keymap.
There is a thought. The installer asks what sort of keyboard I had, and I
think I told it I have a type6...which I do. If I did pick the wrong one,
could that cause a kernel panic ?
