Hi Keith,

It’s definitely worth filing a bug. (See reportbug(1) for details on the procedure.) I guess, for lack of anything more precise, you should file it against package “installation-reports”. It will (hopefully) be re-directed to a more appropriate package by the debian installer developers.

I’m really glad to see that there’s still some interest in the Debian PowerPC port!

Keep on testing!


I filed my first Debian bug today--Bug#756517--using reportbug against the package "installation reports", as you suggested. There were 147 other bugs in that section, but none of them seemed a match.

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).

I added :

append="Linux video=radeonfb:1920x1080-32@60"

to /etc/yaboot.conf , as you suggested, then ran "ybin -v" and that solved the problem. Jessie is running really well on my Powermac MDD.

Thanks to both of you for all the help.
