Debian as only OS on a PowerBook G3
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Now I'm completely stuck. I tryed to install debian woody on a PowerBook
G3. The think worked well until I tryed to boot the new OS. All I tryed
did not help booting from the HD.
- - PowerBook G3 (black case)
- - OldWorld MAC
- - 20 GB HD
- - Partitionated with first partition / (including /boot)
- - Bootloader quik
The first strange was that ofpath shows /pci/mac-io/ata0/ata-disk where
the system only has a /pci/mac-io/ata0/disk@0,0 at openfirmware. Next
funny was that I could only access the firmware AFTER installing linux
Now the important: If I do a "dev /pci/mac-io/ata0/disk@0,0" followed by
an "words" I get NO words. So it do not wonder why boot ata0/disk@0,0:2
give an "can't OPEN".
Is there any I can do to let this mac boot into linux? Maybe there is a
way to create a bootdisk? The installation menu says that is not
supportet. But the installation starts from the floppy so it must be
possible to boot the normal system from floppy too.
Please answer to my mailaddress as I have not subscribed this list.
