Thanks for the reminder about partitioning.
I'm keen to try this out on
my old G5, but I can't work out where the files are. Nothing obvious at
it was moved to:
OK, thanks - I'm testing behind a firewall, so I have cloned the repo using
rsync -avz --delete powerpc.opensuse.org::opensuse/ppc/factory/repo/oss/ .
and made it available on a local ftp server.
Booting NET ISO (build 0003) still (*) fails with "Insert CD number 1"
but backing up to the configuration and specifying network install
parameters (to local the server) loads the images and starts YaST. Yay!
(*) This also occurred with OSL 11.0, previously run on this box. Same
However: 2 problems immediately bite me. (NB the text that follows was
transcribed manually and in a hurry, so may not be accurate, but the
gist is there)
Problem (1): SHA1 sum error: ftp://.../oss/boot/ppc/config Continue
(Y/N). I said Y... Is this just me (maybe a corrupted image, but rsync
is good at not doing that and was used for both transfers) or is it a bug?
Problem (2): YaST then reports no hard disc, and getting a console with
Alt-F2 and running "fdisk -l" confirms this. I assume the necessary
module is not being loaded, but how do I find which one? I may be able
to run OSL 11.0 again to see what it loads, if I can find the Hard Disc
- or at least a gzipped image to create one. Sounds like a bug unless
caused by (1) - I wonder if it's worth creating one in bugzilla?
Hardware is a G3 "New world" iMac from 1999 (the iconic translucent blue
model) ("G5" in my earlier message was a typo). 512M RAM, 333 MHz PPC
CPU. I also have somewhere a MacBook from the same era, will try that
too when I have time.
