Re: Squeeze

I just tried it on my G4 PowerMac. It worked about the same as for Milan.

I don't have any Darwin or MacOS partitions, but my other Debian partition got two entries, both called "Debian" (one for the main vmlinux and the other for the vmlinux.old)

Let me know if you want any details...

Thank you for feedback. I just added support for your controller to
ofpath. Please find new yaboot package and new install cd at [1].

Thank you, Milan. Very good, indeed. Now the installation finishes
without complaints, and the system boots.

But not perfect. Finding other bootable partitions. It does not find
my macos partition, nor my macosx partition, and names my darwin
partition as macosx partition. The two entries for my Ubuntu partition
receive same label.

I'll attach the relevant parts of installation log. This may be beyond
the scope of this patch, but anyway...

Actually, this finding of other bootable systems is more than I would
have hoped for of Debian. But it's a good feature.
