Hi I am trying to install SuSE 10 on my Apple
PowerMac G3 350Mhz
(Blue and White). I have discovered by >looking here
) that I have to create
my own boot strap.
I have managed to get the system to boot off the CD
after install. I
have even discovered the need to log in as >root in the rescue
but I can get no further. Having installed SuSE 10 on my PC I must say
I am surprised ?how difficult it is to install it on the PPC.
You have to have the yaboot boot loader installed on the new world
macs. Yaboot should be installed at the end of CD1 before the system
reboots. WHen you are installing, chceck where YaST is recommending it
put boot the boot loader. If you are installing Linux on a second
drive it may be putting it on the wrong drive. It should be installed
on the main drive. Due to the design of the macs and the buggy
openfirmware that they use(basically the Mac's bios), it can be a
challenge to get linux to work on some macs. The new world machines
are better than the old world machines. Good luck.
