I have problems booting... stops at Loading Stage 2...
I'm assuming it has something to do with a newworld partition or something. Just dont know what goes in that partition after I create it.
You don't need to to someething with the newworld partition yourself, yaboot does that.
You just need a proper /etc/yaboot.conf. Be sure to read man yaboot.conf
and man ybin
. After editing the yaboot.conf it gets written into the newworld partition via ybin -v
. The OF will be updated to boot from this partition.
The "newworld" partition needs to be HFS
-formatted and (probably) the boot-flag needs to be set (gparted or parted can do that). The Linux root-filesystem needs to be ext2/ext3/ext4
. Though I had problems with ext4 at some point, so I used a seperate ext2-partition with the kernel on it.
