    I found it actually stoppes PearPC working sometimes.

    How so does it stop PearPC from working?

    If PearPC is crashing after the bootup, this wouldn't make sense as this
    code only effects bootup, and some small OpenFirmware changes, but
    those are towards compatibility and not against.

    When I choose a boot thingy (mind gone blank) it just quits.

    "stops working" is very vague, and unhelpful towards solving any problems
    that this may be causing.

    Please describe exactly how you mean it causes PearPC to "stop
    working."

    What happens *EXACTLY*, what output has PearPC output, etc. Without
    this, "stops working" means nothing.

    It either

    1. Starts up and you pick a partition and it quits. No
    output avalible (however sometimes it does start)
    2. Just quits. The output is that it cant open a file. It
    claims it doesnt exist but it does.
    3. Works fine.

    I'm telling you to describe what's going on, and you just keep repeating
    yourself.

    If you have no more information to provide me, so that I can fix the
    problem, then stop posting about this.

    If you're confused as to what information I would need, then please read
    the previous posts that I have made.

    Until such time as I recieve an accurate and understandable bug report,
    then I will ignore your bug.
