I've installed Gentoo 2004.3 on my iBook G3/800MHz according to the instructions.

Now it won't boot. Since I can't take a screenshot, I used my lousy Sony Clie's camara to take a picture of the (relavant part) of the screen:

I don't know what the problem is and therefore don't know how to troubleshoot it.

Here is my /etc/fstab:
Code:
/dev/hda11      /      ext3      defaults   0 1
/dev/hda12      none      swap      sw         0 0
none         /proc      proc      defaults      0 0
none         /dev/shm   tmpfs      defaults      0 0


And here is my /etc/yaboot.conf:
Code:
boot=/dev/hda9
device=hd:
partition=11
delay=10
timeout=40
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot

enablecdboot
enableofboot

macosx=/dev/hda10

image=/boot/kernel-2.6.10
   label=Linux
   root=/dev/hda11
   sysmap=/boot/System.map-2.6.10
   read-only


NOTE the fact that yabootconfig failed after not being able to find mac-fdisk, so this is an adaptation of the generic config that ships with yahoot.

I'm not sure this is a PPC specific problem either.


Does someone know what's wrong or can they point me in the right direction?


Thanks! :-)
