Installing Debian Sarge on S/390

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

While looking around in the net for zSeries stuff, i discovered Debian is containing a software called "hercules", a z/Architecture Emulator. So i thought, why not giving that one a try and installed it. After understanding how to run hercules without root-privileges (okay, next time i should read README.Debian first...) i started installing Debian Sarge inside the virtual machine, using Debian Installer RC2. Went quite well, but there is one nasty bug left (#281407) while doing partitioning.

Okay, S/390 isn't that fast, if you run it as virtual machine, but hey, have you a tried to work with S/390?

~ # cat /proc/cpuinfo
vendor_id : IBM/S390
# processors : 1
bogomips per cpu: 55.91
processor 0: version = 00, identification = 002623, machine = 3090
