Netbooting works for me (I have not tried booting from CD) on my Dual
G4 800MHz system. I've appended the serial console output from the
boot, as I'm sure you'd like to see it.
Good to see that it worked! The boot log is very similar to the iBook,
except for the Uninorth chip version and GMAC gig phy.
I assume your work will go into CVS soon?
I hope so. Benno ? Hello ??!
PS: As an aside, I'm having real problems netbooting this Mac:
0 > boot enet:0
(~5 minutes later)
BOOTP/BSDP failed: no FILENAME specified can't OPEN: enet:0
I think the problem comes down to the mac client replying with a
DHCP:INFORM to the broadcast address, but the DCHP server listening
only to the address it asigned the client. I've left a log at
The good news is that setting default-server-ip and default-client-ip
from openfirmware seems to make things work.
I just checked - I must have an older version of OpenFirmware, since
it does a simple BOOTP request, and doesn't have this problem. Thanks
for the workaround.
