Grub2 and Efi (MacBook 5,1)

Hi Grub2 fans!

I'm trying to get Grub2 working on a Efi platform (MacBook 5,1).
In version 1.96 I get a menu with a working MacOSX entry, but linux
won't boot. I just get some output which looks like data for the video
card, than the system hangs.

With todays SVN version (which does not compile configured without
--disable-werror) I just get a rescue shell with loads of messages on
unknown commands.

By the way, how do I scroll up to the topmost message in grub-shell?

Here is my grub.cfg:


menuentry "Gentoo Linux 3 NOAGB NOEFI" {
    loadbios /boot/vbios.bin /boot/int10.bin
    linux /boot/kernel-2.6.27-gentoo-r8-n root=/dev/sda4 video=efifb
agp=off noefi

menuentry "MacOSX" {
 chainloader /usr/standalone/i386/boot.efi

Has anybody a clue?

kind regards,
