Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

Dear Spectre

Can you try Debian installers with new UBoot 2015.a for Sam460 (if you have purchased it)

I was testing a previous version of this 2015 UBoot (thanks to ACube) and I was not able to start recebt installers you released as you remember..

Last Jessie iso works ok with the new Uboot.

Keyboard navigation in the boot menu is another story with the new Uboot though.
Seems to register double key presses with a A-eon AmigaOne usb keyboard .
Dont have any other USB kebyboard models to try.

Strange...I downloaded Sam460ex_Debian_Jessie-3.iso again and burned. Booted from CD...
After loading kernel/ramdisk, the screen turns to black and linux penguin is displayed on top left, then nothing.

There is nothing on serial output...

difficult to pinpoint.
The CD command line may not direct debug output to serial. Will have to have a look . I think that there was a limited to the lenght of the Menu.lst command line .

Hope that you are using CD-RW 's for these .

@ Seventhwonder

Version of the previous Debian Jessie Netinstaller with Serial debug output enabled.
It crashed on my first boot attempt but was ok on the second so if it fails try it a couple of times.

For me, this booted at first try, however I am not able to parition the disks with the installer..Now I am trying again..

Have you changed something ? Because this one is working :)

Only shortened file names and directories names and added the serial console output.
Same kernel and ramdisk as the previous version .

You cant have more than 16 partitions so no more than 13 and some free space before your start the install wich adds 3 more.
