Package: yaboot-installer
Severity: important

Hi, ...

I file this bug as a place-holder for discussion and solving this issue. I
have now had various reports that installation on various IBM powerpc/power
machines, ranging from the RS6K B50 which has a 32bit 604e processor upto
modern 64bit pseries (p620), that yaboot-installer tries to do search for an
apple_bootstrap partition, and naturally fail.

Colin, this is your baby, i know we worked on this, and believe it used to
work in the past, so do you have an idea of what is going on here ? 

Also, i was tempted to raise this bug to RC level, so feel free to do so, it
really needs to be fixed before etch, and preferably before the beta2 even, so
we can get good feedback on IBM rs6k/pseries installs, which given the nature
of those machines is difficult to obtain.
