Many thanks for testing! Could you please post the output messages of the kernel panic?

Thanks in advance,

I think the Kernel4.7 have problems with Xorg to detect my Graphic-card. R7 250X
So If i boot with Slitaz25.gz and copy my Xorg.conf.radeon to Debian9s /etc/X11/ I can boot with Kernel-4.7
It works see the Image below.

Thanks a million for testing! I am already looking forward to the kernel 4.1.30.

@Julian: Many thanks for the new image!

Cheers,

Today I installed Debian9 with Kernel 4.1.31 on my USB3-Stick ;)

Booting with the initrd-4.1.31 (and root=LABEL=debian9) goes without any Fail.

Hi All,

As you may already know, PowerPC has been removed from testing (Debian 9/Stretch). Your only option is switching to unstable (Debian Sid). You can also use the experimental main repository if you like.

Links:
My sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list):

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian experimental main
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
I can confirm, that the unstable repositories are working. I also use the experimental main repository. I have recently updated Firefox to version 49.0-5 and Icedove to version 45.4.0-1 via the experimental main repository.

Code: Select all

apt-get install -t experimental firefox

Code: Select all

apt-get install -t experimental thunderbird
Thunderbird isn't still available for Debian Sid.

By the way, Firefox 49.0-5 isn't really stable. I would recommend you to use Firefox 45.4.0esr-2 on Debian Sid instead. You can install Firefox 45.4.0esr-2 with

Code: Select all

apt-get install iceweasel
Please switch to the unstable repositories. In addition you can use the experimental main repository too.

Cheers,
Christian

If you want to backtrace a program, then you need the debug version of your package. If you want to install some debug packages, please add the following repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

Code: Select all

deb http://debug.mirrors.debian.org/debian-debug/ unstable-debug main
deb http://debug.mirrors.debian.org/debian-debug/ experimental-debug main
You have to install a package with dbgsym attached. For example for Firefox:

Code: Select all

apt-get install -t experimental firefox-dbgsym

This weekend, I created the first usable installation image for ppc64:

It should install fine on any 64-bit-capable PowerPC (e.g. Mac G5).

When asked for a mirror during installation, enter:

* Host: http://ftp.ports.debian.org
* Directory: debian-ports/
