I have installed with success Etch (Debian) on my intel mini mac (dual core):
to do so I installed Boot Camp and refit.
Since this first stage, I have built a kernel to avoid to run on a generic one.
Now I want to use my box without monitor: because of a bug in the firmware,
the box freezes (see previous email sent to the List), so I want to come back
to EFI boot.
I have installed the elilo Debian package,
but I cannot modified the EFI part of the computer because
efibootmgr is stuck because the `efivar' kernel module seems not to work.
My guess is that I have to launch linux with a working `efivar'
at least once before to use efibootmgr:
so far I did not succeed to do so.
How can I launch linux with a working `efivar' ?
Thansk in advance,
