Bug#545987: debian-installer bug on powerpc
At the partition setup stage, when you accept defaults and confirm
write, it complains that there is no yaboot partition
(Apple_Bootstrap) available. If you open that partition (which is
there) and reselect the type as NewWorld Boot before confirming then
it completes successfully. This defiantly happens when you choose LVM
as the partition method with separate partitons (/home, tmp, /var
etc.) but I imagine (?) it might happen in other situations as well
due to the yaboot partition being separate from these options.
My suspicion is that there is a variable set or bit set when you
choose this partition type manually which is not done automatically
when it should be, which is what the check looks for.
I doubt this is relavant, however my system specification is below:
iBook G3 300Mhz PowerPC 750
Otherwise it's a stock system.
If any more information is required I'd be happy to provide it.
