Installed Gentoo PPC64 (stage 3) from tgall's site.

Everything was fine: installation, configuration, Kernel compiling.

The first boot failed: the box (a pSeries RS6000 44P-170) reboots before boot; then I tried to boot in OF

0> boot disk

appears "boot" string, then system freezes and I have to power off to reboot.

yaboot.conf seems to be ok.

Happy to hear impressions from other pSeries users and their yaboot.conf file.

Thanks you

With a boot partition of 3MB all works fine.

Some early versions of OF (on 44p-170) seems doesn't support partition over 4MB
