applying the update, or the drive will not function at all):
Damn, i think my isp doesn't want the imac to go internet. Dns are not
resolved, and typing 126.96.36.199 that should be the
docs.info.apple.com ip doesn't work ( google instead, 188.8.131.52 ,
I have also inserted the ip of some working dns in the internet
configuration tool but nothing seem to work. I guess the only way to
perform these upgrades is from mac os, not from linux, right?
I can anyway reopen the imac ( a thing that i really don't like to do
again ), put its hd into my x86 and copying the files ( hfs write seems
to be supported ), then remount the hd and try to install the updates.
In the meantime, you can still install Linux, but you must
use a netboot netinstaller
In setting up your netboot environment, you must take
into account that the tray-loading iMacs use BootP and not DHCP.
To finish the "no luck" series, my x86 doesn't seem to like the new pci
ethernet card... One hd stops after a while :( , and i don't know what
is the problem ( powersupply too weak? ).
