Hi, I have had a boot problem with bootx and linuxppc2000 on my powerMac
7200/90 ever since I first installed it. When I am in the MacOS, and open
the bootX control panel, and click the "Linux" button, it boots to linux
just fine, but when I reboot out of Linux, and either wait the 8 seconds
or click Linux again in the BootX startup screen, the machine instantly
goes into what would appear to be a sleep state. The machine is on, but
responds to no commands, the monitor goes into a no power mode, and linux
is never given the chance to boot.
If I click MacOS, it will boot into the MacOS successfully, and I can
then, from there, open the BootX control panel, and boot to linux fine, it
just never works on a reboot.
When I first posted this problem on here I was told to try a different
version of BootX, I have now tried all version I coould find, and the
problem exists on all of them. It's a good thing the linux box is so
stable that I never have to reboot, and only do so if I am at the box,
but I would like to be able to reboot it remotely, and know that it will
be fine starting up on it's own.
Any ideas on what I can do to rememdy this would be greatly appreciated.
Is yaboot the answer?
