    Sven> So, what are you really booting ?

Hi Sven,

I am booting vmlinux-2.12-1-powerpc64 (installed from the sid deb file
with its initrd).

    Sven>  Did you run ybin and such, 

Actually I do not usually because I should not need to (I have the
symbolic links set up so I can simply move them to point at the right
images). But, just to be sure, I just tried it again and it changes

Actually I'm having the same problem that Paul reported, except on a
PowerMac 7,3 (970FX). The boot fails at the exact same point. I can
try benh's suggestion but it will take some time (need to install the
biarch toolchain and recompile kernel), and it was more about
isolating the place where the fault happens, right?

    Sven> Maybe you could try : set panic_timeout in the yaboot kernel
    Sven> options as Bastian suggested before though

Actually my PowerMac7,3 does not seem to reboot by itself in a big
hurry (but I've never waited that long to find out). I usually have
enough time to look over the kernel output and reset the power.

    Sven> Also, please write to bug report #323724 in futur, and not
    Sven> to the mailing list.

Will do.
