Call for testing

Dinar Valeev-2
Yay, we have 12.2 code base build for Power [1].
So far we have about 50 packages failed to build and 70 unresolvable.

Please give it a try. Core system should work.

Have fun,
Dinar

Thanks for the effort. Should the 32-bit CD work for a PowerBook G4 Titanium? It
fails to boot on my machine, which has Mint 9 dual booting with OS X 10.4.

On power up, I get the normal "First Stage GNU/Linux Bootstrap" heading,
followed by the normal "Press l for Linux", etc. When I choose "c" for CDROM, I
get "Booting CDROM" that quickly results in a screen flash that looks like a
restart, followed by a repeat of the bootstrap prompt. The second time, the
machine hangs after the "Booting CDROM". One time, I got a "Catch FFFFFFFF"
printed. When it hangs, the CPU is busy as the fan runs at high speed.

Any other debugging that I can do?

Larry

Could you please try to boot it through OF?

When booting the 12.2 image in QEMU, I get an error that OF couldn't find :tbxi. However, looking at the HFS partition on the DVD, it seems to have the flag correctly set:

$ hls -l suseboot
f  UNIX/UNIX         0  28023754 Sep 25 11:49 initrd32

and in fact, booting os-chooser manually also seems to work:

Welcome to OpenBIOS v1.0 built on Aug 28 2012 05:40
Trying cd:,\\:tbxi...
No valid state has been set by load or init-program

Config file 'yaboot.cnf' read, 551 bytes
[...]

Still trying to investigate what's breaking down here.

So the default boot path is \\:tbxi. \\ means "blessed folder on the first HFS volume". :tbxi means "file in a folder with the tbxi file type".

Now, the latter part is fine. If I manually say

  0 > boot cd:,\suseboot\:tbxi

then the 12.2 install DVD works just fine.

However, it can not resolve \\. Adding a bit of debug code, an 11.1 DVD gives on "blessed folder" resolution:

  Blessed: 3c

while the 12.2 one says:

  Blessed: 0

So for some reason the suseboot directory is not blessed. And that's why openBIOS fails to find it as \\.

Blessing of folders happens with hattrib -b.

Where is the script that does the tbxi setting on os-chooser? The same script should also do hattrib -b on suseboot to get a working system directory.

It took a bit of searching to find out about booting through the open firmware.
Once I figured that part out and using the work around from Alexander, I got it
to boot and started the installation; however, it seems that DNS is not working.
I was asked for the HTTP IP address - something that I do not know. The wired
interface on the Mac is working.

I do not have time to work on this problem at the moment, but will let you know
what I find later.

It asks for the IP address, but it happily resolves names too if you enter them :).

Ok, the fix is known. The question is are we able to fix it?
installation images made on x86 box using x86 kiwi. In order to fix
it, we have to fix kiwi.

Since 12.2(x86) is frozen now. It is almost not possible.
The solution might be to prefer ppc kiwi in the project
configuration.. Don't know if it possible at all.

I have set it up with Adrian in some magic way. ;)

So we hopefully can supply a build with updated kiwi and so
get booting cds.

That's great!
I've sent patches upstream. https://github.com/openSUSE/kiwi/pull/123

Do you want me to package those patches?

Before you do that you should get pata-macio into the initrd.

 The new image has been rebuilt. But it is not published yet?... weird.
Might be due transition from powerpc.opensuse.org to download.opensuse.org/ports

Anyway. It have integrated fixes for installation-images (thanks
Andreas) and kiwi, so
it should be bootable on macs

Build 0007 of the ppc NET CD is bootable for me. I started the installation, but
it could not find my harddrive. Is pata_macio included in the configuration? I
tried to find the configuration in the rescue system, but /proc/config.gz is not
present.

Thanks,

Larry
