Yeah; as mentioned above, I figured that out today. Still, it's good to
get verification that I did the right thing.

Having taken a break from this issue for a few days, I'm now back at it.
Since the above suggestions and resulting errors, I have done the following:
which gave me a shell with /target as my top level root
sh-2.05a# mount -t proc proc /proc
which mounted the proc filesystem. Previous to this step, "ls /proc"
showed no files. Now it shows a normal-looking /proc directory.
sh-2.05a# ybin -v
which generated these errors:
ybin: Finding OpenFirmware device path to '/dev/hde6' . . .
ofpath: Device: /dev/hde not supported
ybin: Unable to find OpenFirmware path for boot=/dev/hde6
ybin: Please add ofboot=<path> where <path> is the OpenFirmware path to
/dev/hde6 to /etc/yaboot.conf
If you're in the chroot, you need to mount /proc so it can find the nvram
mount -t proc proc /proc
Sorry I forgot about that earlier.
Pretty much exactly what you have listed at the top of this message,
except that macos is on 13 and macosx is on 14 (I reinstalled adn
repartitioned again and changed things a tiny bit) and I changed the
"device=" and "fgcolor=" lines.
And then pretty much the same error messages for /dev/hde14 and /dev/hde14.
So I then editted /target/etc/yaboot.conf and added the line:
that shouldn't be cd:6, in your case I would try ide0:6. What does the rest of
your yaboot.conf look like? But first just try mounting /proc.
I used "cd:" instead of "ide0" because I booted into the installation
from the OpenFirmware prompt using the command "boot cd:14,yaboot"
(partition 14 is mislabled in yaboot.conf above; should be "macstandard"
or something). Looking at the output of "devalias", "cd" corresponded
more accurately to "hd" (except on the other controller) than it did to
"ide0:", as shown here:
Interesting things from "devalias":
And let me say that I've really been appreciating Chris' input on my issue. He's put a lot of time and effort into helping me. Thanks!
