Hello,

I've installed freebsd 8rc1 on an iMac G3. And I'd like to upgrade it to rc3. the "freebsd-update" tool doesn't work on ppc afaik. So I used sysinstall's upgrade tool. But now the OF says it cannot find a valid kernel, and freebsd doesn't boot.

What would be the best way to upgrade freebsd on a ppc ?
Can I restore my freebsd, maybe by booting on the install disk and re-installing it ?

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

well yes, that's how you use freebsd-upgrade. That doesn't work on a powerpc.

Any idea ?
