I am attemping to intall SuSE PPC v7.3 onto a powermac G4. I realize
most folks are shaking their heads wondering why I would want to install
v7.3. Simple answer is: I do not want to use v7.3, but we developing
for an embeded system - using 7.3 is a requirement.
I have narrowed down the problem I am having to the boot loading
configuration step -- I have managed to install the OS, which I can boot
using install CD1. However, I can not boot off the hard drive.
I beleive the problem may be related to lilo -- I edited /etc/lilo conf
WHen I run /sbin/lilo, this is the output I see:
running on pmac_new
BOOT_DEVICEPATH = ERROR: device hdc not yet supported
OTHER_DEVICEPATH = ERROR: device hdc not yet supported
<snip some normal output>
set OF boot-device ERRORL device hdc not yet supported,\\:tbxi
Usage: nvsetenv [variable [value]]
It would be great to b oot off the HD, but it that is not possible, I'd
settle for having a boot CD that points to the HD to boot.
So, any ideas about the /dev/hdc errors or a link to where I can read
about making a PPC boot Cd?
There is a major upgrade for PPC port of Packman. There are hundreds of
new packages, so my machine was compiling for weeks. But finally all the
packages, which I could recompile, are up to date.
There are also many missing for various reasons:
- x86 binary only
- has x86 assembly in source
- has x86 optimizations in makefiles (I'll fix these later)
- just failed to compile (might compile better next time)
These packages were compiled, but only partially tested by me. Please
let me know, if you have any trouble with the the packages!
You can download these at ftp://spike.fa.gau.hu/pub/pmppc101
Sources are not yet uploaded, will do that tomorrow.
I'm trying to install SLES9 on IBM JS21 blade server. During
installation process I get "Kernel panic". I'm attaching part of install
I have succesfully installed SLES 10 on same machine, but sadly I have
to downgrade to SLES9 because of the problems with oracle.
Thank you for your answers and kind regards

I was trying to compile a package from source rpm with y2pmbuild.
Compilation failed with a message, that 'sys/io.h' is missing. I looked
around in ARCHIVES.gz, and for other architectures it's in glibc-devel,
but for PPC it's not there. What is the reason for it, and how it could
be worked around?
