ofwboot.xcf seems to crash before it starts to load the kernel. I

in the archives
but there was no response to this message.
I've tried the latest ofwboot.xcf as well as older ones lying around
over here, but I always
get the same crash, which is described in the message cited above. For
ofwboot.xcfs the SRR0 values are slightly different which I interpret
as the crash address.
http://www.netbsd.org/ports/macppc/models.html cites G5 PowerMacs as
so what is wrong?
Am I missing a OF setting I need to make or something?
Hmm, no response. Is this list still alive?
I did some research, and ofwboot.xcf crashes in
sys/lib/libsa/loadfile_elf32.c, function loadfile().
It tries to load the kernel to address 0x100000.
I've added a line of code to write something to 0x100000 just before the
with a printf before and after.
The printf before appears, but not the printf after. So it seems that
is not writable (or present).
reports Openfirmware 4.
So it looks like Openfirmware 4 is not supported. Is this correct?
