Re: Advice on a iBook ...
I just did my install on a TiBook the other day :) Unfortunately, the
upgrade to unstable has been a rough road but things are looking good
now. Got to get this keymap stuff taken care of ......
Not sure if I'm understanding your message right, but "default=" in
yaboot.conf is referring to a kernel image label. It's the default
choice when you just hit enter after getting the boot prompt.
This way, you can add other kernel images and change the *default*
kernel chosen when you boot Linux. I haven't tried this, but I bet you
could change the default OS (between MacOS and Linux) on system boot by
playing with the StartUp Disk control panel/preference thingy in MacOS.
BTW - I don't think my config has a "macos=/dev/hdaXX" line.

Based on ...
Now my partition table is ...
/dev/hda8 APPLE_Bootstrap bootstrap (800.0K)
/dev/hda9 APPLE_UNIX_SVR2 swap (100.0M)
/dev/hda10 APPLE_UNIX_SVR2 / (1001.3M)
/dev/hda11 Apple_HFS untitled2 (2.0G) // MacOS
I installed first the MacOS side an then Debian 2.2r0,
before restarting the Debian installation a opened a
shell a edited the yaboot.conf file like this ...
/* After the firts reboot I changed the path to
/boot/yaboot and /etc/ofboot.b without the /target */
An use mkofboot -v -C /target/etc/yaboot.conf with no
errors. Now I boot straight to the Linux side and if I
keep the option key pushed it loads the graphical
loader between MacOS and Debian, I tried to change the
default OS to MacOS and choose Debian using the option
key ... I changed the "default" line to "macos" and
"/dev/hda11" in the yaboot.conf with no success ...
any other way ? (I run ybin after every modification
in the yaboot.conf file).
As a note ... everytime I boot into linux it said
hd:8,\\:tbxi loading Kernel ... not a valid ELF image.
Thanks in advanced ... now I feel that I'm walking to
the right way ( baby steps !!!).
Blessings ... Carlos.

to Debian. Since that everytime I reboot or start
iBook it sends me to the Open Firmware and nothing
you must have an 800K type Apple_Bootstrap partition
all MacOS partitions, once that is there run
