woody to sarge - where is the new kernel?
I'm a linux fan since its 0.97 version, but I'm new to the apple world.
a few months ago I bought a second hand iMac and I'm *very* happy
with it. obviously, it is a linux-only box! I chose Debian for its Mac
support. on pc hardware I'd always used Slackware and update it with
mario@kruiskruid:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
cpu : 750CX
temperature : 11-13 C (uncalibrated)
clock : 500MHz
revision : 34.21 (pvr 0008 2215)
bogomips : 996.14
machine : PowerMac4,1
motherboard : PowerMac4,1 MacRISC2 MacRISC Power Macintosh
L2 cache : 256K unified
memory : 576MB
pmac-generation : NewWorld
at start, I had no internet connection so I asked a friend to burn for
me the full distribution Woody (3.0r2) on 6 CDs.
now I _am_ connected and I updated woody and then upgraded to sarge.
I have the following problems
my system does not boot any more from hd. I have to use cd1 from the
woody distribution and then tell the booter to load 'hd:4'.
I cannot repair the #1 issue. if I try to remake the boot partition, I
get a silly answer.
ofpath: WARNING: Your kernel is too old for proper support, device may
mkofboot: Create hfs filesystem on /dev/hda2? [y/N] y
and nothing happens (I try to boot again, but the system refuses and
grasps to the CD).
so I thought I need an old ofpath *and* a new kernel and then again the
thanks in advance.
please cc: to my address!
