Debian PPC Install errors (debootstrap, error 1)


Hi all!

I installed debian/PPC on my Powermac 7200/90 fine earlier this week. I had messed up on the install, and decided to reinstall. I zapped the PRAM, and tried the reinstall. Now, everytime it starts to install the base system, when it is nearly finished, it exits with debootstrap error 1. It then restarts the installer process. Why would this be happening? Could it be the new harddrive I put in it? (It is a 2GB hard drive, as opposed to the original 500MB one) Could it be the new Harddrive jumper settings? At this point, I have no idea what the issue could be. All help is appreciated.

Quick Followup - I checked the alternate console (Number 4) for this, and this is its output:

ar: read: Input/output error
zcat: invalid compressed data--format violated
zcat: invalid compressed data--crc errror
zcat: invalid compresed data--length error
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Another followup:

I have tried the install from the network (via http) and from my cdrom, and receive the same errors.

Yet another followup:

I put back the 500 megabyte hard drive that the system originally had, and it installs perfectly. What would make debian not like the hard drive? I can't figure it out. It's set to the same SCSI id number, and it has the termination setting, just like the original drive.

I have the same problem in a 2GB partition in my powermac 5500.

The default partition is ext3 format, I just chose ext2 (no journal) and it worked.

Let's sese how it runs forward..
