Does this error still occur with more recent kernel versions?

Cheers,

I'm trying to install Debian testing on a PowerMac11,2 (PowerMac G5,
dual 2GHz processors, January 2006) using a current etch d-i ISO.
From

the boot screen I have tried

install64
install64 video=ofonly

These start the boot process which leaves some OF text on the screen
(black on white) and overwrites it with the following in a white IBM-
like font on a black background:

Found initrd at 0xc00...1736
trying to initialize btext ...
CF000100


MM Init
CF000100


MM Init Done
CF000012


Setup Arch

... and at this point the box (or at least the display) freezes.
After a

short time the fan comes on.

The display adaptor is a PCI nVidia GeForce 6600.


Does this error still occur with more recent kernel versions?



Sorry, I no longer have this machine to test on.
