quik on Open Firmware 2.01f trouble
I installed sarge (I think) from the Sven's daily boot floppies at
Several issues are list-worthy. In this installation, which uses the
2.6.8-powerpc kernel, quik was sucessfully installed. That's a recent
improvement over other installs I've tested (iso CD - last weekly,
netinst CD - this weekly), where quik went by quik, and no success
This time, after the success message, d-i reported "Setting up Firmware"
or something, then a warning that the system might not boot, etc.,
I have my Beige G3 set to stop at the OF prompt. After rebooting out of
stage one of the installation, I simply typed "boot" and got a message,
I think it was something like, "CAN'T OPEN pci/mac-io/mesh/sd@0:x". x=?
Anyway, I remember from my reading at FreeBSD and penguinppc.org about
needing to bless the drive with Apple's System Disk unility. So I setenv
boot-device back to default (/AAPL,ROM), got back into MacOS9 and
blessed my scsi drive by reconfiguring the PowerUser with manual
settings for boot-device pci/mac-io/mesh/sd@0:x and changed the boot
file to /boot/vmlinux-2.6.8-powerpc.
On the OF prompt I typed boot, and got the following:
RESETing SCSI bus
DEFAULT CATCH!, code=FFF00700 at %SRR0: 003f4000 %SRR1: 00083070
Hey! that's farther than I'd gotten in the last 48 hours! Anybody know
what's happening here? Should I pass load-base values to the setenv?
I'm still doing the reading, and I'll pay the dues, but I was hoping
someone would snatch this up and give me a boost.
