hi all:

i previously submitted and retracted a message to the PPC forum regarding my installation issues. in short, everything went according to plan until reboot, where i got the message:

Code:
Please wait, loading kernel ...
hda:7, /boot/kernel-2.6.19-gentoo-r5: Unable to open file, Invalid device


i know, i know: RTFM. but i did, to no avail. so did folks like this fellow.

then i found this post where i found a step -- step 26 -- that my usually dopey brain latched on to: I never copied System.map to my /boot directory!

when i did that step, and rebooted, IT WORKED! i made no changes to yaboot.conf or anything else.

i'm pretty sure the step is not in the manual -- Googling "2007.0/handbook-ppc System.map" gave no hits. of course, there's that lingering issue re: my dopey brain.

i noticed other smaller (immediately reconciled) flaws with the manual. how does a noob get involved with maintaining that documentation?

ry
