quik booting 2.6 kernel and initramfs
I've been using quik bootloader successfully on my oldworld macs, with both 2.2 kernel (no initrd) and 2.4 kernel and initrd. But it didn't work with 2.6 kernel and initrams. It is loaded as an old style initrd, but the kernel won't find it. Why? Same kernel and initrd boot perfectly with BootX (from inside Mac OS, that I wish to get rid of).
Machine: PowerMac 7500/100 with a 200 MHz PPC604, 224 M RAM, 4 G SCSI disk, SCSI CD-ROM.
Distro: Xubuntu 6.06.1 DT, kernel 2.6.15-26, most of the SCSI modules taken out of the initrd to allow quik to load it (space).
Mac OS: 8.5, Bootx 1.2.2.
quik: 2.1-6 from debian.
So, if anyone has succeeded in booting a 2.6 kernel (which requires use of initramfs?) with quik, I would very much like to know...
