This can happen as the device isn't visible in PCI without being active
If you manually select sungem from the driver list does it work?
sungem is not the prob. automatic detection works on the ibook (built 2001),
i can have a network connection there. It finds my nfs tree and loades stage
2 but then suddenly doesn't go further.
but at the PowerMacG3 -- which should work with the bmac driver -- there I
don't i cannot get the network connection to work even when i mannually
select the driver. The automatic detection doesn't work at all.

Ah ok this is a bug, I've not been able to track down yet.
Can i SOMEHOW help you to find this crazy bug??? you see i'd do nearly
EVERYTHING to get FC3 running on this mac. (It would be like heaven for the
jouth house i want to do it... !!!) but i am no programmer. i mean i was,
but only on windows and that's jears ago. but i have still have some basic
understanding... Si if thetre is anything i can do PLEASE TELL ME!!!

This happens if the .discinfo timestamp does not match the stage 2
image - are you sure it's from the same tree - the boot.iso needs to
match the stage2.
No, i guess the tree is under steady development, they change something
nearly every day. I tried to be up-to-date by comparing all the directories
with my ftp-prog (gFTP) but maybe something went wrong. I will do a complete
new download all in one day...
Mac is not a "supported" release yet - so you'll have
to be prepared to
take the rough with the smooth.
Any idea when fedora will have the ressources to
make ppc an offical releas?
I mean, if there are to less people: I could participate by testing...
thankx so far and
ps. at the moment i am in the czech republik. this is 1000 km far away from
the macs i spoke of. but in 2 weeks i will be there again (in austria) and
then i will work a lot on this topic. so please be patient for 2 weeks.
