Bug#237307: ITP: miboot -- Linux bootloader for OldWorld PowerMac computers
Description: Linux bootloader for OldWorld PowerMac computers
miBoot is loaded at boot by the MacOS ROM present in OldWorld PowerMac
computers, as a fake MacOS "System" file.
Unlike quik, miBoot isn't loaded directly at the OpenFirmware stage, and can
be used to create boot floppies. You will need an HFS partition if you wand
to use it from a hard disk. It's mostly non-interactive and won't let you
edit kernel arguments on boot.
miBoot itself is licensed under the GPL, but it depends on proprietary
software to be built from source. I've primarily packaged this for
building OldWorld PowerMac d-i floppy disks.
