[PATCH 0/5] Make d-i/grub-installer work for NewWorld Power Macs
## Make d-i/grub-installer work for NewWorld Power Macs ##
When applied, the following five patches should make d-i/grub-installer
work on NewWorld Power Macs.
This was tested during Debian installations for the ppc64 architecture
in "expert" mode on the following machine types:
* PowerMac11,2 (late 2005 model with 1 x 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970MP)
* PowerMac7,3 (early 2005 model with 2 x 2.3 GHz PowerPC 970FX)
...with 1 x SATA HDD (with a capacity of 1 TB) installed, using a glass
console. Results for "non-expert" mode installations are pending.
This is currently untested for the powerpc architecture (specifically
for 32 bit NewWorld Power Macs).
Frank Scheiner (5):
Install hfsutils in-target for NewWorld Power Macs (adapted from
Detect and select NewWorld bootstrap partitions (adapted from
Handle HFS file systems (format, mount, unmount, permanent mount).
Override $bootfs, $bootfstype, $bootdev and $state for NewWorld
Create and configure the missing CHRP boot script.
Adapt grub-install parameters and finally perform GRUB installation.
Make CHRP script bootable by OpenFirmware. Configure NVRAM
defaults but do not boot automatically.
