Ok, that's an important piece of information that was missing.

Getting GRUB working on PPC Macs is not fully supported by Debian
yet. It's a work in progress still. It works on IBM PowerPC
machines though.

Various reports in the net recommend to purge grub completely and
reinstall. Did that supported by a install cd and chroot with no
effect. Did't found info's in Debian's BTS, though. Any one here
experienced similar effects? I tried 2.02+dfsg1-[1-3].

Did you also try to reinstall GRUB to the OpenFirmware partition?



I will look into fixing GRUB on PowerPC Macs at some point, but
I haven't had the time for that yet.

  Maybe I'll try 2.0.2-2 or earlier...

Thanks for your efforts.

This would be extremely useful. Thank you. You might have run into
a bug.

As a shot into the dark, can you try this patch?
