Better participate and make sure that that it works, much more
constructive that way. Also, i was refering about the person (maybe you,
i don't remember) who was telling to use yaboot2, while it doesn't seem

Well, the difference is that m68K people care and do the work, but if
you just complain, and nobody who cares is having the hardware, how can
we advance ? Notice that it is well probable that powerpc/apus support

No, the problem is that it is damn hard to test stuff if you don't have
the hardware for it. Especially kernels and boot-loader stuff.
