I've gone through Colin's steps to install FC3 on my G5 and came across
FYI, I did an "Everything" install.
1. yabootconfig does not seem to translate the "--initrd" option into
the /etc/yaboot.conf file.
yabootconfig -r /dev/hda9 -b /dev/hda12 --kernel boot/vmlinuz-*
but my /etc/yaboot.conf file did not list an "initrd=/boot/initrd-*"
Workaround: edit /etc/yaboot.conf and issue ybin command.
2. "Everything" install installs both the ppc64 kernel and the ppc32
Workaround: delete ppc32 kernels.
3. I had to turn off kudzu.
Kudzu was doing something for about 10 mins before I finally gave up and
CTRL-ALT-DEL'd the machine. The system did not hang or oops.... I
haven't bothered to investigate any further.
Workaround: enter "Interactive" setup, skip Kudzu. At system prompt,
chkconfig kudzu off. Reboot.
4. I had to turn off cups
Workaround: enter "Interactive" setup, skip cups. At system prompt,
chkconfig cups off. Reboot.
In the end, I have a great FC3 system :)
