Re: Debian PPC test video problem with G5 Quad

Did you try to update the yaboot configuration with the new parameter?
Done properly, this will pass the parameter to the kernel on every boot.
Modify /etc/yaboot.conf and add the parameter, then run ybin (please
skim the man page if you've never run this before).
