testing with powermac/oldworld (probs in miboot, debootstrap, kernel)


  booting with 2.3.5 (built from cvs about 48 hrs ago)
  vintage 99 or 98 PowerBook g3
  booting from miboot floppy
  additional floppy for root
  the rest done via HTTP


 - had to edit the 'system' file on the miboot floppy with ResEdit
   to add video=atyfb:vmode:11 for my hardware

   Is there any workarund for this?  Any way at all to set ker
   args differently to cope with video hardware?

 - during install base unable to install the 'sid' distribution, due
   to this error:

    dbootstrap: No such script: /usr/lib/dbootstrap/scripts/sid

 - kernel we're using there has some problems, there are
   unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.2.19/

 - (dbootstrap 0.1.9) emits:
     Failure trying to run: dpkg --force-auto-select --forceoverwrite --skip-
   This error repeats many times.

 - 'make system bootable' (quik variant) failed to actually make the
   system bootable from the internal hard disk; I booted right into

I'm going to check in a bit more to all this.
