This problem is PowerMac specific. We have to compile in pata-macio
(libata) instead of ide-pmac (deprecated ide) driver into kernel.
Yaboot has to be fixed first to support pata-macio.
1.3.16-3 works fine for me. I am running pata-macio.
I assume you are using an "own-compiled" kernel? And by "1.3.16-3" I
assume you mean the latest yaboot?
Sadly, that doesn't work for all of us. In particular, unless I have
the expertise and time to build a private installer CD with my own-
compiled kernel, I can't install on a new machine.
Does anybody know what's holding up getting this fix into the main-
line Debian PowerPC kernels?
