I've tried setting the dev to /dev/hda8, and no kernel arguments, also tried the same kernel arguments as for the install, nothing. I try to boot and the boot messages look good, everything is found, everything correctly identified. However it stops at "Freeing unused kernel memory: 184k init 28k prep" And goes no farther. I do not believe it is locked as the keyboard still responds. Still only able to boot using the Debian kernel.If my information is correct, the step the kernel takes after freeing unused memory is to add swap space. Does that give you any clues (i.e. what did the addswap part of the setup report, have you block scanned your HDD for physical errors, is there occasional hard drive activity while the system sits unresponsive, etc)?
The installer completed the addswap and disk check successfully. I went back to the installer and ran the addswap again, no errors. I hear zero disk activity, but then again my disk has always been scary quiet.
As far as yaboot / OF goes - again, take this with a grain of salt, but I'm pretty dang sure that if you've gotten this far yaboot is not an issue, and I doubt OF has anything to do with it either as its main purpose lies in bootstrapping the system - the Linux kernel, being very portable, shouldn't pay any attention to some version or implementation of OF.
That was my thought initially, but now I am grabbing at straws. Thanks, DAve -- Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a logo change for Memorial Day. Why do they choose to do logos for other non-international holidays, but nothing for Veterans? Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
