I've done the upgrade and am running 2.6.8 on my B&W G3 (rev a). Did
you update your
yaboot config and re-install the config to the Apple boot partition ?
How about your /etc/fstab file ? Is that setup for 2.4 or 2.6 ? 2.6
and 2.4 have
different ways of drive numbering, so you will need to change that.
Also, are you using devfs ? Maybe you might want to try not using
devfs if you are
using it. I've never used devfs, but just mentioning it as a possible
source for your problem.
