On older CHRP based hardware, like the IBM RS/6000 7046 B50, Open
Firmware offers a maximum of 16MB for kernel and initrd. The last Fedora
ppc installer that got below this was Fedora 9. Later kernels boot fine,
but not in combination with a "large" initrd.
It may be that insisting on installing a modern OS on old boxes like
this is plain silly, but still...
Is it possible to get around this? Is it for example possible to boot
the kernel and mount a NFS share with the initrd image as the root fs,
and continue loading the installer from there?
Or is it possible to trick yaboot or the firmware to boot anyway?
Hi, I had posted earler that just pressing enter at the boot prompt
all I get is a white screen. Then Alex Kanavin said to try
Which I have not tried, sorry to say - because in the same message
Alex suggested I try the ubuntu ppc, which I downloaded
and burned on my F13 (x86) machine. I booted it on
the powerbook G4 in 32 bit mode and I chose the live-powerpc
and it came up just fine.
For the record, I tried the args
and it failed to boot (memory fault).
So, is the Powebook G4 a 32 only bit powerpc cpu or is
the dvd I downloaded for the 32 bit only?
If the DVD is for 32 bit only, then when I press the tab
key for the boot args, why would it print the option to
boot in 64 bit mode?
After I downloaded the F12 DVD iso and the CHECKSUM file,
Thevalus that comes out is the not the same as what
I see in the CHECKSUM file. Not only that, it is of a much
shorter length. To wit:
$ grep DVD.iso Fedora-12-ppc-CHECKSUM
$ sha1sum Fedora-12-ppc-DVD.iso
So why the discrepancy - or by what metod is the sha1 signature of the
iso computed and distributed in the
I downloaded and burned the DVD iso for F12
from a fedora mirror
After I burned it, I dd'ed it into a temp file and compared
the md5sum of the temp file against the md5sum of the downloaded file.
Identical - so the burn was good.
I tried to boot it.
At boot, The
prompt comes, and I just press enter.
I get a blank white screen and nothing else happens.
Hope someone can help me get it installed.

didn't quite work out right. After rebooting, I don't see that Fedora is a
