[Fedora-sparc] Install failure on Sun Blade 100

You need to connect a serial console or your pc/latop and use HyperTerm to install.  You then need to set the Openprom to the serial console.

setenv input-device ttyS0
setenv output-device ttyS0

Thank you for your kind replies.
Sadly, I was hit by another bug(?): System boots until it halts with the message
console: colour dummy device 80x25
console [tty0] enabled, bootconsole disabled

looks like system switches to a console, I'm unable to view. Is there a chance to redirect the console to serial console (or else?)

I'm currently downloading latest debian-install build. If booting this, I'l put a note here.
Thank you,
