Re: Debian on the new powerbook 12'1
I had similar trouble on my G4 which was solved by installing a later
version of yaboot than the one that ships with woody.
I've installed Yaboot-1.3.8-rc4 which works fine "out of the box".
Since then there have been 2 more releases of yaboot, the latest being
Yaboot 1.3.10 is as always available from:
Official version of the yaboot-howto and other yaboot related
As always yaboot releases are signed with GnuPG, it is highly
recommended you verify this signature (detached ascii .sig file)
(this message is also signed with the same key (keyid 0x2C447AFC)).
1.3.9 needs to go in anyway since the new powerbooks (and all
macos9-free models) will not boot yaboot prior to 1.3.9.

I've tried to install Debian in my powerbook box but when I'm going to
configure the boot section, I don't get to make that yaboot works well.
Have I update the yaboot file? Any little hack that gets me to make
ybin and configure that and I could run MacOSX and Debian?
My linux partition, the root partition, begins in /dev/hdc11, then I
have other partitions like home, usr, var in /dev/hdc1[2,3,4]. It would
be great that I could put a yaboot.conf in /etc and then make ybin and
restart the machine and I could work with Debian and MacOSX.
Currently I'm not subscribed to that list, cc me too in the answer,
Thanks in advance. Regards.
