I've hit another minor glitch ;-) I selected "macintosh", "uk"
keyboard and accepted all the defaults (standard not USB) - should it
be "macintosh_old"? because install has asked me to confirm that
/etc/CORBA/server/GnomeICU.gnorba should be overwritten. Pressing Y
gave q and backspace returned , (several times ;-))
Also I'm now in a quandary - do I break install and start again
because I can't move forward?
Thanks for your patience and persistence ;-)
Here's what happened:
If you boot with keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1, you should be able to
resurrect your install. To try to shut it down gracefully, refer to the
Ooops - so much for planning ahead ;-)
In the web page it refers to adding keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1
in quik.conf or yaboot.conf neither of which I use. Do I put this in
the lilo.conf (MacOS) file after rootdev=?
Also I'm still stuck in the install so can't issue shutdown or edit
anything (gracefully or otherwise)?
