It's been almost a month and no movement on this problem.

Bug#580455 will soon make Squeeze un-installable on PowerMac hardware due to the need to switch to UUID's for identifying the boot and root partitions in response to udev having rendered the conventional device names non-deterministic.

I've provided a patch (to ybin) that fixes the problem, but there doesn't seem to be anybody interested in testing it on non-PowerMac hardware, or geting it into the released code.

I'm not a DD or a DM (and don't want to be one -- I haven't the time or expertise) so there's a need for somebody to take over...
