How do I get my iMac to boot straight into Linux?
I just installed LinuxPPC 2000 onto my iMacDV this morning, and it seems to work OK, though some settings don't seem to want to stay set.
I figure this is most likely because I'm still booting into Linux with the CD. I'd like to boot directly from /boot, but the instructions for doing this make no sense to me.
It involves editing the yaboot.conf file, which is trivially simple, but the manual talks about this as though I were editing the copy on the CD!
I've run a search for yaboot.conf on my hard drive, and it comes up with nothing.
If anyone else has managed this, please let me know how you did it.
You may get what you need from the fake system folder on the Cd if it didn't get install properly. Contents of /boot:
On my system, / is partition 13, /boot is partition 12, change to suit your Mac. /boot must be a MacHFS Standard partition.
Contents of the file yaboot.conf:
init-message = "\nWelcome to LinuxPPC!\nHit <TAB> for boot options.\n\n"
timeout = 50
default = linuxppc
The format of my reply was modified when posted. The files in the fake system folder are:
> MacOS ROM
All the rest are in the root directory.
