Since you are still using yaboot for the CD boot, it would be really
helpful if you could fix the boot problem for many iBook G4 models. I
reported[0] the problem and provided a fix[1] back in October 2017.

I still see the same problem using the 2019-04-12 ISO image:

  Loading ELF

  Decrementer exception at   %SRR0: 001001d8   %SRR1: 1003030

This problem does not exist after applying the fix. I do not understand
why you seem to have no interest in fixing this issue that is affecting
real hardware.
