Quoting Bean <address@hidden>:

I see, you're using qemu to test ppc, maybe I can try it some time. Is
the emulation good, how close to the real hardware ?

qemu uses so called Open Hack'Ware, which doesn't have proper terminal support for the menu and doesn't report available memory in the way GRUB expects. The later causes "out of memory" messages, but it can be worked around in GRUB by hardcoding memory size.

btw, do you remember which version works ? We can track down the
problem from there.

It was working when grub-mkrescue was added for PowerPC. According to the logs, that's January 31, 2008.

It looks like my G3 PowerMac died yesterday and won't turn on anymore. The same thing happened to my G4 PowerMac several months ago. So, I guess qemu remains the only option for me.
