Well, I got experimental with my kernel and can't boot. So I boot from my livecd and I can access to my system fine. But when I run ybin -v I get errors about /proc not being the right one. The handbook suggests to bind the /dev. Is that all I need? Or is there a best way to bind /proc and /dev then mount before I chroot into my system?

Also, after I edit my /etc/yaboot.conf file, is it just a matter of running
Code:
ybin -v
or should I exit and run yabootconfig --chroot /mnt/gentoo?

Taken from the Gentoo PPC FAQ http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml

When I rebooted, yaboot didn't work! Now, I'm stuck. How can I fix this?
It's probably just a misconfigured yaboot.conf. The easiest way to fix this is to boot the LiveCD again, mount your gentoo partition and check yaboot.conf for errors. You'll also need to run ybin -v -C /mnt/gentoo/etc/yaboot.conf to update the boot loader once you have finished. This can all be done without chrooting back into your install.


Please post your yaboot.conf if you need more help.
