i have installed sucessfully gentoo on my ibook g4, but after an update of mac os x it is not booting yaboot anymore, but goes directly into mac os x.

I have already made a pram-reset(alt-apple-p-r) and done a mkofboot, but it does not work.

can anyone help me?

Maybe when you upgraded OS X it rewrote your boot-file variable in OpenFirmware. Have you checked that it is what you think it should be (sorry, don't know what it's supposed to be off the top of my head).

That sounds likely, especially if you installed OS X from a CD. If your yaboot partition is the first bootable partition, restarting your computer in OpenFirmware and giving a "reset-all" should fix the problem. If it's not the first bootable partition, then give it a "set-env boot-device <partition>".

i solved the problem, i had two boot-partitions(the 1st APPLE-boot the 2nd a bootstrap), and have written to the wrong one.

now i made a misake and have to reinstall mac os x but it should work!
