G4 cube 2.2r2 install stalled...
I'm trying to get Debian 2.2r2 installed on a G4 cube.
After a couple of false starts, I've gotten to the point
where Debian is apparently installed on my system, but
the system won't boot from the hard drive.
Here's what I did:
- Booted off a CD
- Set up the following partitions:
/dev/hda4 (10MB) /boot
/dev/hda5 (500MB) /
/dev/hda6 (1GB) /usr
/dev/hda7 (2GB) /var
/dev/hda8 (16GB) /home
- Installed the base system
- Section 7.17.1 in the installation manual indicates that
I should use yaboot as my bootloader, so I executed a shell
and did the following:
# ofpath /dev/hda
# mkofboot --boot /dev/hda4 -m /usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot --root /dev/hda5
Make an HFS partition on /dev/hda4? [y/N] y
Then I rebooted.
When I boot into OpenFirmware (Cmd-Opt-O-F) and
type boot, I get a "Can't find bootable partition error".
What did I do wrong?
Please bear in mind that I know very little about Macs... :-)
