Re: d-i and iBooks

Hi Thorsten

What kernel version are you using, are they the same?

do you see other messages. Sometimes the order of the messages is not
strictly chronological (this happens with usb, adb?). If you see
something like "Unable to open initial console" then probably the unix.o
module was not loaded correctly. (IIRC)

Probably /linuxrc on the initrd is not executed or exits before the call
to init. Then it could be, that you default root device set in the
kernel matches your actual root partition or you have a root= option in
your yaboot.conf.
Do you pass the init=/linuxrc kernel option?

They initially came from the woody cdrom. So this is not surprising me.
