Dual booting OSX and Debian on G3 beige
This is a repost of a saga that I am currently looking for help on
uk.comp.os.linux. Apologies to anyone who has already seen this.
The machine in question is a beige G3 oldworld machine. I have OSX
installed and I then did this :
I downloaded the first 2 disks for woody and did an FTP base install
of that. Woody's installation appears to be more advanced that
potato's when it comes to quik.
It changed the boot-command and boot-device in my open firmware for
me. However, a reboot just got a message scrolling saying
can't OPEN: can't OPEN:
I now have the following in /etc/quik.conf
init-message="Debian GNU/Linux PowerPC (woody)"
## Do not point image= to a symlink, quik can't follow symlinks
/boot/vmlinux-2.2.19-pmac does exist.
Running quik produces the following warning :
Warning: prior partition (entry 6) is bootable
Rebooting the system with the boot-device and boot-command set to what
debian set them to at install time
(boot-device /pci/mac-io/ide@20000/ata-disk@0:0, boot-command
begin ['] boot catch 1000 ms cr again boot)
0> can't OPEN:
If anyone can help I would _much_ appreciate it. I can't help but feel
I'm close. I have both OS's on the machine, I just can't boot debian
:( If anyone knows of somewhere else I could ask this question, I
would appreciate that information as well!
