Powermac G5 yaboot install failed
(sorry if this double-posts - something went wrong on our mail
new, non-dual core, dual-proc 2.0 PowerMac G5
latest testing debian ppc netinstall ( 11-28)
no Mac OSX partition ( HFS)
fresh disks for this install...
tried partitioning several different ways, but last try was- with 33k
Apple partition, 1 meg bootable New World partition, 390 gig ext3
1) install base system, chose default kernel
2) write yaboot to hard disk:
error: "failed to install boot loader"
looked in /var/log/syslog - nothing of interest I can see.
What should I try?
