Re: Installer problems on Beige PowerMac G3

Hi Holger,

I used the stable Sarge images in;
I guess that current means 20050305

I have run the SystemDisk2.3.1 utility before the installation. I have but 
/boot on the root file system with type ext2, etc.

Can I verify the quik installation, or run it manually an extra time by 
entering the shell? Should I verify (with mac-fdisk) that some partition 
has the boot-flag? It seams that OpenFirmware don't recognize any bootable 
disk to read quik from. I only get the Mac-symbol with a question-mark or a 
X, I don't remember which of them.

did you use the stable sarge installer or something newer ?

The beige oldworld g3 have some known problems with OpenFirmware and quik, 
search for "quik quirks"...
