yabootconfig fails on B&W G3
I've been fighting to get Debian installed on a Blue & White G3 for
several days, and after finally brute-forcing my way through the
OpenFirmware prompt ("boot hd:x,yaboot" didn't work -- had to resort to
"boot ide0/@0:x") have made it through the installation.
However, at the "Make system bootable" stage, yabootconfig fails. So I
popped into the second VT and ran "yabootconfig" manually. It failed
also, reporting that it "Could not determine root partition, aborting".
I looked for /etc/yaboot.conf, and the file does not exist.
My partition scheme looks like (using /dev/hde):
/dev/hde5 Apple_Patches Patch Partition
/dev/hde6 Apple_Bootstrap bootstrap
