So yah. It’s been around 2 hours since it was officially released. What was I to do, aside from pull out an ancient PowerBook G4 and install the latest release on it? (Download the PowerPC Release here)
As I type this, it has finished installing. To get this far, I should note that on my mac, I needed to boot the kernel using the
radeon.agpmode=-1 flag, whether that be the live USB (
live radeon.agpmode=-1 or
Linux radeon.agpmode=-1 for the final install. First things first: Lets fix that.
Step 1: Boot up using that argument
Step 2: Login, and fire up the terminal (Start, System Tools, LXTerminal)
sudo nano /etc/yaboot.conf
There is a couple things you can do here, should you wish to. First, we should add the flag above though. Do this for both entries.
append="quiet splash" with
append="quiet splash radeon.agpmode=-1"
If you want your computer to boot up verbose, remove
quiet splash and it will show all the output during boot.
Step 4: Save
(ctrl+o), press Enter, and exit
Step 5: Run the command
sudo ybin -v
Congratulations, now your bootloader and flags are set as they should be for proper operation.
As I play around more I’ll keep this post up to date 😀
