Bonjour Sven,

it is claimed that the patch you submitted is broken:


Can you send a fixed patch to the but report? Then, the iMacs users
could add their support to this patch within the bug report, until we
get an answer from the d-i team. Also, I just changed the subject of the
bug as it not only affects the unofficial powerpc64 port, but the official
powerpc port as well. It may be one reason why this problem has been
overlooked so far.

If there is no interst in the debian-installer team to support the
installation on G5 iMacs, how about making an specific installer? This
would introduce the opportunity of supporting the Airport extreme card
on machines on which the users kept an OSX system, or by asking them to
insert the installation CD.
