i am trying to install 2004.0 on a powerbook but after the bootprompt i get only vertical lines on the screen.

someone told me that there is a file which i can modify so that various screensettings are tested at boot time. i think that might help, don't know the files name though...

or do you have any other suggestions how i could get it to work?

thx jonas

You might want to try adding video=ofonly at the yaboot prompt after the name of the kernel you want to boot, so for the live cd i think it would be like:

>live video=ofonly

you can also add to kernel args when you setup your bootloader.

It sounds like the kernel is just not detecting it properly, but that shoud be enough to get you going at least
