I need a live CD that will boot on a 12" PowerBook *after* upgrading the OS to 10.3.3 and getting the firmware update that stops the 1.4 live CD from booting. 2004.0 still hangs after saying it's trying to mount /proc.

It doesn't need to be Gentoo. I need to be able to run a text editor to edit yaboot.conf, and ybin to install the bootloader again. I've been fixing my disks, and the partition numbers have changed. As a result, Gentoo is still there, but completely inaccessible.

A 2004.0 live CD that tries to boot from the 2.4.22 (or whatever) kernel would work, I guess, but I don't know if there is such a beast.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Never mind. I had a 'spare' 1 gig partition (my HFS-standard partition for moving files from Linux to OS X), so I blew that away, installed a small YDL system, and used that to fix yaboot. Everything works again now.

Is there a 2004.0 Live CD anywhere that will work with the 10.3.3 firmware? I want to put gentoo on my 12" PB.

The kernel bug has been fixed finally. The 2004.1_rc3 cd is bootable and can be used to install the kernel. Cfr. sticky topic about "proc mounting issue"

Best regards,
