I had something similar happen to me with my pismo powerbook at one

version. I never investigated or had enough knowledge to figure out
the actual cause, but I think it may have be a corrupted file or
Maybe try pulling yaboot from the testing release using apt-get. Or
compile yaboot and install from scratch.
Just a suggestion. Someone else probably has a much better anwser.
I'm persevering with the current yaboot (see posting in response to
Derek Pates) but if that line of enquiry fails I'll revert to plan B ;-)
I feel my problem is related to yaboot expecting both a
MacOSX_bootstrap AND MacOSX_second_stage partition. Whereas I just
have one HFS partition with MacOSX and OS9.2 installed with no separate
boot partition (other than the yaboot one).

I've read Chris's excellent HOWTO on Booting with Yaboot on PowerPC
and the penguinppc.org mac-fdisk doc. Have created and reordered the
Apple-Bootstrap partition to /dev/hda2. I can OF boot Linux and can
get into OSX by holding down Option key during start-up. But I am
having trouble getting Yaboot to work properly.
OSX 10.2 was installed over OS 9,2 on the same HFS partition

macosx=hd:10 (I also tried macos=hd:10)
I've run ybin after changes
But straight booting sticks on something like "Starting bootstrap
second stage ...." and just stops. If I reboot into OF and type
"boot hd:2,yaboot", Linux boots fine (I used the sample yaboot.conf
from 6.5 Kernel Image settings).
I don't really want to repartition (too much important stuff on
MacOSX to lose). Am I missing something obvious?
