Do you mean that when a PCMCIA card is inserted the kernel hangs after exitMMU ?
This would be a new problem to me.

Most of the time as per Tobias and others, the exitMMU will cease to be a problem if you eject the pcmcia or nubus cards while booting, or ejct and reinsert.

The other problem for me is recurring unfortunately.

I saw this issue a little bit over the weekend while experementing with a few things.  I had 2 issues.  One part, the installer, boot kernel, what not, would always freeze at the "exit:MMU" part; and a few times, I would be working/playing and the machine would cut off without warning.  I reset the PRAM several times to ensure everything was cleared up, and my problems went away.  I haven't had any of these issues since, but then again, it has only been a few days.

By the way I suspect that the pmu problems are coming from the old nemisis of nubus macs when encountering linux: the power management of the nubus slots. Tobias has made a lot of strides in taking on this problem, but alas it still exists.

I tried  this by coping over the installer from Ubuntu and renaming it the same as the miboot  file - however I think that ubuntu is too lrg of an installer at 4.7mb as compared with the sarge file at 2.?mb.

One thing that ubuntu's installer cd or installer file did for me before failing however was to mount and repair my damaged sarge ext3 file system which was damaged from my pb1400c pmu problems whereby the system shutsoff in the middle of doing stuff.

I have not tried it myself, but wouldn't you need a method of getting into the particular distro's installer?  Maybe this is my lack of knowledge coming back into all of this, but the most recent offerings of miboot only has the ability to boot  into a Sarge Installer.  Wouldn't you need an equivalent to that for any distro you are looking on installing?

On another happy note, I used the miboot iso for the first time over the weekend on my 1400c (with Sonnet 400Mhz G3) and was able to get Debian back on my machine.  I upgraded the harddrive using a Fujitsu 12GB drive from a dead Sony Vaio, just purchased a Teac 8x writable drive off ebay for $10, got everything upgraded to Sid, and got xorg up and running with Blackbox as my WM.  Now, if only the resolution were a little higher. Uggh!

Has anyone out there gotten knoppix, Suse or Ubuntu working on the nubus  machines with the current miboot image that tobias, Daniel, Florian and others have worked on? For those of us less savy in the linux world - those distributions are appealing, as they leave some things less to chance (the chance of someone like me breaking the system) while providing a great selection of programs, with autodetect and automount already in place.

I usually boot the Debian installer, choose to load the installer
components from the CD (this implies that ext2fs-utils are loaded) and
then switch to a shell.

Then I manually invoke the repair process:
fsck.ext3  /dev/discs/...

                  To be replaced by your root partition.

Good  luck,
