Re: Call for testers: new yaboot package release
I tested this new yaboot in my Squeeze partition on my PowerBook G3
Pismo. I installed it without problems and I issued a ybin -v. I
rebooted and yaboot 1.3.16 smiled at me. I am back in my Squeeze
partition, no problems!!
If you need more info, let me know.
etc # sudo dpkg -l | grep yaboot
ii yaboot 1.3.16-1.1
Yet Another Bootloader
etc # ybin -v
ybin: hfsutils is not installed or cannot be found
ybin: Try --mount if Linux 2.6.32-5-powerpc supports HFS
etc # apt install hfsutils
