Re: Re-Post to " Debian 8 on Late 2005 G5, Graphics Issues "



Hello,

this passage does not work here

install the kernel using the command:
sudo dpkg -i linux-image-4.5.0-rc2-powerpc64_2_powerpc.deb

Once installed you need to edit yaboot.conf

Use the following command:
sudo nano /etc/yaboot.conf

Append the following text exactly as listed at the end of the file:

image=/boot/vmlinux-4.5.0-rc2-powerpc64
label=test
read-only
initrd=/boot/initrd.img-4.5.0-rc2-powerpc64
append=""

Save yaboot.conf

Apply yaboot config with following command:

sudo ybin -v

Reboot your G5 and when prompted, ensure you enter "test" for the label
in yaboot bootloader.





When i type

"sudo ybin -v"

after the above

i get

ybin: /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA-WDC....... -part2: No such file or directory

i was away sometime from Debian@PPC after having sold my PowerMacG5 with
AGP -
got a Powermac G5 quad withGTX7800 and am very happpy with it .
today got installed Wheezy withouth problems,

everything run smooth from beginning, sound came back after short tweak,

but wanted to compile kodi right from start and run in issue with gcc+
compiler too low 4.6 > 4.7+ would have been needed ... so i decided to
upgrade to jessie.

now i have this graphic glitch , and i cannot do anything , no login ,
no exiting,

so my question is how can i prevent when booting debian jessie to come
to this "graphical glitch" so that i can install this 3.18.kernel from
Mr. Peter Saisanas that i downloaded?


Thank you very much + sorry for the Newbie Interruption.


Cheers + Happy Good Night.

Rich
