Problems booting debian after upgrade to jessie and running ybin
I have a MacMini PPC(G4) triple-booting MacOSX, Debian and MorphOS.
output of mac-fdisk:

After upgrading from wheezy to jessie a few days ago, I had some
graphics-problems (no radeon-driver
in x, just fbdev), which according to #748398 might be solved by adding
to yaboot.conf. This led to the first start of ybin after more than 5
years and at least 2 debian
Here is most of my yaboot.conf:
I had to change /dev/hda(2|6) to /dev/sda(2|6) to stop ybin from
complaining, after that ybin -v ran without any error-message.
Now I can't boot into linux from yaboot anymore, I get the following error:
/pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/@0:5,/boot/vmlinux: unknown or corrupt filesystem
But yaboot starts up and I'm able to boot into MorphOS, MacOSX,
Openfirmware and from CD.
I have no separate /boot-partition (/ is ext2).
I tried the following:
- boot from jessie-install-cd, cancel, start shell, mount /dev/sda5,
bind-mount /dev,/sys, /proc and so on, chroot to this, then:
- ybin -v: works, but no difference
- mkofboot: works, but no difference
- yabootconfig and comparing the relevant parts of the generated file to
- try without the append-line -> no difference
- try the absolute path to kernel and initrd instead of links -> no
I even tried putting the files to the HFS-partition and made a label to
load them from /dev/sda6 - this gives the error message: not a valid ELF
I don't have any clue what's going on and what further steps I could
take. After all, this device has booted all 3 OSes successfully for ages.
Thanks a lot for reading till the end and bye..
