Yes, it belongs in the "root" of your HDA. The "root" on MacOS is theQuote:> Copied the files vmlinux,

This is a syntax error. It should read:Quote:> My current settings for yaboot config.
Notice the comma rather than the period, and the two back-slashes
(\\). It might work with one backslash, but I *know* it works with 2.
Make sure that you have copied the vmlinux file as 'vmlinux' and not
as 'vmlinux-2.2.15-0.1.2' or something. If you have, either re-name
vmlinux-<whatever> to be just 'vmlinux', or alter the syntax of you
config file to read '\\vmlinux-2.2.-whatever'. They must match.
Similarly, when you boot to open firmware and type the boot command,
make sure you use 'yaboot.tbxi' only if your file actually is
'yaboot.tbxi'. Mine is actually called 'yaboot_0.5.tbxi' and if yours
is called something like that on your Mac drive, then you must type
the whole entire name, not just 'yaboot.tbxi', at the O/F prompt. This
is another little tidbit they don't mention (presumably because it's
Finally, double-check that 9 is the correct partition. I have a G4/450
with MacOS 9.04 on HDA and YDL on HDB, and my partition is hd:5, not
hd:9. You can check it using the YDL install program, just make sure
to abort it and DO NOT WRITE to either hard drive (just mount and read
HDA to see what partitions it thinks are there). The really big
partition is what unix thinks is your Mac's "root" partition.

hi again :-)
I have an AGP G4 and I'm having trouble getting yaboot to work (I realize
this is nothing new). I've tried various OF device aliases and none will
work except cd: (using the linuxPPC installer CD). Both hd: and ultra0: do
not work (I'm using the partition number w/the kernel on it - doubt there's
any mistake there); yaboot says the device could not be found. I've even
tried using the zip: alias and a zip disk with my kernel on it to no avail.
