I was really looking forward to testing ubuntu on my iMac G3 400 and
I've spent more than 10 hours reading articles and trying to install it.
I tried to install:
1) On a partition on my ext FW drive
2) On a partition of my internal HD
3) Erasing my internal HD completely and installing only ubuntu
Problem is, everything always goes well until yaboot installation. It
NEVER installs, stops at 83% and fails. And I've tried creating all
the partitions myself and also letting the installer do it
automatically, everything that you can imagine (non-commandline wise)
Right now the Ubuntu system is in my third partition, hda3, and I
just can't boot it because yaboot never manages to install in the
bootstrap partition (number 2). If I try to boot it from the CD
yaboot via hd:3,/boot/vmlinux kernel it boots from the installed
system in my HD but stops because it says there is no root argument
(asks me to append a valid root argument, which I guess is root=/dev/
Can anyone help me?
Thanks a lot.
