    MAC TIGER with ubuntu 10.04 PPC

    Hi guys, I`m new in this fuorum.

    I have a MAC G4 AGP with 1GB RAM PC133, HD 40GB.

    I install Ubuntu 10.04 PPC and MAC oS X Tiger in the same machine.

    First install TIGER and after Ubuntu.

    All work fine, I can select Boot in Mac or Ununtu, but after update Mac tiger and Ubuntu...

    ...blank screen. The machine don`t show the boot menu. Only boot in linux, but I have press enter...enter...enter...


    How I can rescue the boot menu?

    Thanks...

    Not easy this one. You have a bootloader which is not configured correctly.

    Can you get into a command line if you select Linux? Otherwise you have to chroot into your system from a live CD and correct yaboot from there.
