I did not. Is this required with yaboot? If it is it's my mistake totally. It's not required with grub which is what I'm used to using on x86 machines. I can see that running ybin -v has an impact on the bootstrap partition: MacMini etc # ybin -v ybin: Finding OpenFirmware device path to `/dev/hda2'... ybin: Installing first stage bootstrap /usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot onto /dev/hda2... ybin: Installing primary bootstrap /usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot onto /dev/hda2... ybin: Installing /etc/yaboot.conf onto /dev/hda2... ybin: Setting attributes on ofboot... ybin: Setting attributes on yaboot... ybin: Setting attributes on yaboot.conf... ybin: Blessing /dev/hda2 with Holy Penguin Pee... ybin: Updating OpenFirmware boot-device variable in nvram... MacMini etc # I cannot reboot and try it right now as the machine is doing some work. I'll try it later today and let you know how it goes. I suspect this might fix it. Once I get this done then I'll strip out a bunch of the leftover stuff from the kernel config and try to slim stuff down a bit. Thanks for all your help!
