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?
