Well I have had a problem loading up the LiveCD in my iMac G3 (500mhz)

I was suggested using the command:

live-nosplash-powerpc video=ofonly

Which works, to a point-

I am now stuck on a terminal screen with all of the writing showing that its startng bluetooth etc.

And now I am prompted with

ubuntu@ubuntu$


What do I do now to get into the Live Desktop so that I can install?

Thanks.

Although you should not have to do this, try:


sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

I would try the alternate CD. The live CDs have not worked on about half of the computers I have tried. Alternate CD has not failed on me yet.
