yaboot bootstrap installation crash

Bug #97177 reported by Asa Hunt on 2007-03-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
yaboot (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Trying to install Kubuntu 6.10 on Firewire HD with iMac G5 1.8Ghz. I used Apple's Disk Utility to create 2 partitions (as suggested in the mac-fdisk basics http://www.penguinppc.org/bootloaders/yaboot/doc/mac-fdisk-basics.shtml) then from LiveCD, deleted the 1st partition to be replaced by "/" and swap but I was not able to get past this point. After this attempt I also tried creating another bootstrap partition (via mac-fdisk) between the hidden apple partitions and the empty space, to no avail.

Could you please run 'tar czvf device-tree.tar.gz /proc/device-tree' in a terminal window from the desktop CD, and attach the resulting device-tree.tar.gz file to this bug report? That would help to fix this bug. Thanks in advance.

Changed in ubiquity:
assignee: nobody → kamion
status: Unconfirmed → Needs Info

and output of /proc/scsi/scsi

Direct-Access-RBC issue?
