Subject: Bootloader trouble
Date: Wed, 12 Oct 2005 16:57:12 +0200
Hello!

Having had no success with the 2005.1 disk, I am trying to reinstall 
Gentoo from 2005.0 on my G4 iMac. This had been all right before, but 
now I am meeting bootloader trouble. At my first attempt, ybin warned 
me that "your kernel is too old". I wonder what the reference is, since 
this install has never seen the Web. However, I put in a more recent 
kernel (2.6.13.3), but it is also said to be too old, and I am still 
having the same trouble: what happens is that the bootloader menu (with 
"l for linux", etc) does not show, and that the machine boots directly 
into Mac OS9.

Here is my yaboot.conf file. Is there anything wrong i it that could 
explain this behaviour?

## yaboot.conf generated by yabootconfig 1.0.8

boot=/dev/hda12
device=/pci@f2000000/mac-io@17/ata-4@1f000/disk@0:
delay=15
timeout=30
macos=hd:10
macosx=hd:11
defaultos=macosx
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot
enablecdboot
enableofboot

image=/boot/kernel-2.6.13.3
	label=Linux
	root=/dev/hda15
	partition=15
	sysmap=/boot/System.map-2.6.13.3
	read-only

Thanks for all hints.

Charles
