debian-installer on PPC and yaboot
I was installing debian on PPC (well, x86 with http://pearpc.sf.net/)
today, using debian-installer.
I allowed the installer to partition the "harddisk" automatically.
Now, some time after it partitioned, it warned me that it needs a
partition for yaboot, allowing to repartition, continue or return to
I ignored that, assuming the autopartitioning had done the right thing.
Later, I got a red warning that yaboot did not find the necessary partition.
Why wasn't it created automatically?
(Also, the hardware detection seems to run rather often... at least
three times in my case...)
Oh, I was using beta4 of the installer, the 110 MB cd image version.
