View Full Version : [lubuntu] trying to add iBook G3 to hardware database

I am a total newcomer to Linux, but I have successfully installed lubuntu 12.04 on an old iBook G3 PPC Mac as a dual boot lubuntu/OS X Tiger system. Since it seems there are a lack of PPC hardware in the database I thought I would follow the instructions to add my laptop to the database. I executed the terminal command that was suggested, but even after installing pastebinit and clipit I still did not get the expected response. It seems I am still missing something. Below is a clip from the terminal session. Can anyone suggest how to install whatever is missing?

Cheers,

Paul
