I have installed ubuntu server 10.04 onto a G3 ibook with yaboot. Apparently yaboot works, but I end up with an error message, mentioned in several threads:
"Gave up waiting for root device."
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/mapper/ubuntuserver-root does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
And then BusyBox v1.13.3 takes over the show.
This is where I got stuck.
I tried mount, with this result:
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw, nosuid nodev, noexec, relatime)
none on /proc type proc (rw, nosuid nodev, noexec, relatime)
none on /dev type devtmpfs (rw, relatime,size=185504k,nr_inodes=46376,mode=755)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode =000)
How can I read or edit lvm.conf og yaboot.conf?
Or are there other actions I should perform?
