Subject: [gentoo-ppc-user] Booting Gentoo 2006.1 on an iMac
> I am having trouble while installing 2006.1 on my iMac. I have made
> other installations before, but never had this problem.
> I am using the Universal ppc disk, and I have followed strictly all the
> steps in the 2006.1 handbook. I have not made any modules, everything is
> in the kernel.
> What happens is that, on the final reboot, I see 10 or 15 lines of text
> (is that the Open Firmware part?) that disappear immediately. Then there
> is nothing, and I have to cut the power to go on.
> I have also made a more complete version of yaboot.conf with macos,
> macosx, etc. Then the bootloader shows these options (ignores
> enablecdboot and enableofboot, though). Typing x for macosx
> starts it normally, but l for linux fails as described above.
> This is done without an Internet connexion. I haven't got one yet
> because my new modem is a Speedtouch 510v5 Ethernet type, which works
> very well with osx, but is notoriously troublesome with Linux (but this
> is another affair).
> I should be grateful for any hints.
