I'm totally ignorant about mac. I've just installed linux ppc on a G3
powerbook using bootX and
kernel v2.1.127. It was painless *but* I have 2 problems which need
1. when I switch on the powerbook bootX appears as it should, but if I
choose linux I've an error message
(in an ugly window) which state
"couldn't hold/lock memory (#-622)
file BootX.c, line 1227" with a cancel button. Clicking the cancel
button start the macos boot.
Fortunately, under macos when I launch bootX and click linux all goes
nicely as expected .
2. I've compiled the kernel and I want to test it, I've to copy the
zImage to /mnt on which I've mounted
/dev/hda7, *but* linux states that /mnt is full although under macos
100Mo are available.
any assistance for a completly mac newbie will be greatly appreciated
