Bug#351908: [powerpc,dual-g5-mac] initial boot failure

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.15-4

I'm trying to install Debian testing on a PowerMac11,2 (PowerMac G5, dual 2GHz processors, January 2006) using a current etch d-i ISO. From the boot screen I have tried

  install64 video=ofonly

These start the boot process which leaves some OF text on the screen (black on white) and overwrites it with the following in a white IBM- like font on a black background:

Found initrd at 0xc00...1736
trying to initialize btext ...

MM Init

MM Init Done

Setup Arch

... and at this point the box (or at least the display) freezes. After a short time the fan comes on.

The display adaptor is a PCI nVidia GeForce 6600.
