Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [O]
Load installer modules: [O]
Detect hard drives:     [O]
Partition hard drives:  [O]  <-- LVM does not work
Create file systems:    [O]
Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [O]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [E]  <-- wrong kernel by default!


G5 PowerMac7,3 (970FX CPU) needs the power4 kernel to boot.

However, when using the default install (install-power4 at the yaboot
prompt) and where the system is getting ready to reboot after
installing the base system it actually installs the
kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc kernel, even though I chose -power4 for my
initial boot from CD! As a result the reboot (and so the install)

When using expert-power4 to install I get to pick my kernel so I can
choose kernel-image-2.6.8-power4 and the reboot is fine (since the
latest version in Sarge now supports the 970FX processor).

In expert mode I would say d-i works nearly perfectly. The only issue
is the RAID and LVM menu options don't actually work (discussed
recently on debian-boot and debian-powerpc, I will file a bug
separately). Great job folks! I have not installed Debian since before
Woody went stable: this is a huge improvement.

This machine has yet to transition to being my daily workstation so I
will be happy to help test d-i for this kind of hardware.

     - Add sanity check in postinst for empty COMPONENTS to guard against
       ugly and difficult to trace errors from debootstrap. Closes: #283510.
   * Colin Watson
     - Use chrp 2.4 kernel on all powerpc chrp* subarchitectures, even
       chrp-rs6k. The chrp-rs6k 2.4 kernel is to be removed.
     - Map lasat subarchitecture to r5k-lasat flavour on mipsel.
     - Recognise POWER4+ and PPC970FX cpuinfo entries as power4 systems.
       Closes: #290702
     - Only look at the first cpu line in cpuinfo on powerpc.
