I've been having to boot off the CD since I
installed this, no matter what
I do. Let me run it down and maybe someone can help me.
1. Stock TiBook and normal SuSE 7.1 for PPC installation. I can boot to
linux or Mac OS as long as I boot from their CD's.
2. Booting with no CD yields the following message:
DEFAULT CATCH!, code=method <draw-rectangle> not found;
do you use the lxppc yaboot binary? That one is broken on the August
2000 and newer machines. Use the binary from our CD or configure lilo
3. Does Suse require both yaboot.conf and lilo.conf?
The manual seems to
indicate this, but LinuxPPC only needs yaboot.conf
lilo is only a frontend for the various bootloaders on ppc. It
configures yaboot.conf and copy the needed files to the boot partition.
4. I've gotten some sample yaboot.conf files
from kind folks but it
doesn't seem to help. With the Linux CD in the drive I get the 'boot'
prompt where I can specify the type and path, which works, but also seems
to ignore yaboot.conf and lilo.conf as far as I can see.
I would really like to start using Ben's updated kernel, which I've
compiled and put in place, but I'm really getting stuck on this. Any help
would be greatly appreciated. We're trying to port some of our stuff to
PPC and this is the only PPC machine we have at the moment.
Read chapter 4 how to setup lilo.conf, its a no-brainer.
