  1. Re: Lubuntu 14.10 PPC Live CD Doesn't Advance Past Splash Screen

    @JGreenidge (OP)

    Any progress on this?
  2. Re: Lubuntu 14.10 PPC Live CD Doesn't Advance Past Splash Screen

    You are missing a backslash before the word yaboot in your command. On my iBook G4, to boot off the front usb port I use this:


    boot usb0/disk@1:2,\\yaboot

    It will not work with only one...

    When using a single button mouse in Lubuntu, pressing the F12 key will bring up the same contextual menu as right-clicking.

    [PPC] Re: Testers needed for PowerPC 12.04

    There is no FLASH for PPC linux. None. Even if you go to Adobe's website and see a version for Linux, it will not work on our PPC's.

    However, there are add-ons to Firefox which allow viewing of...
  5. Re: [Ubuntu PPC] Trouble getting a decent graphics on Powerbook G4 DVD liveboot

    As I said in my former reply, this workaround is for Lubuntu. I haven't talked to anyone able to boot the Live CD of Ubuntu, newer than 12.04 LTS, on a PPC.

    Sorry.
  6. Re: [Ubuntu PPC] Trouble getting a decent graphics on Powerbook G4 DVD liveboot

    These suggestions are for booting the Live CD of Lubuntu (PPC), not Ubuntu (PPC). I haven't heard of anyone being able to boot the Live CD of regular Ubuntu on a PPC since version 12.04 LTS.

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 13.04 blank screen w/cursor after live install

    I agree with you about supporting Lubuntu. I tested Lubuntu 13.04 and I am currently actively testing Lubuntu 13.10. I've had 13.04 on my Ibook G4 (1.33 GHz mid-2005 model) for about 2 months and it...

  12. [PPC] Re: Installing Lubuntu on a 2003 second edition eMac fails?

    This should get you past the "recursive..." error:

    Type it in at the boot: prompt.

    Also, read the wiki. Most questions can be answered there.

    Glad to hear you got it working!

    There's no linux version of Flash for the PowerPC. There are some add-ons to Firefox for downloading Youtube videos in mp4, but no Flash.

  16. [PPC] Ubuntu 13.04 Live CD Boot Parameters for PPC?

    The last version of Ubuntu from which I can boot my Powermac G4's is 12.04. None of the boot parameters that work for booting Lubuntu 13.04 (13.10) work for Ubuntu.

    Has anyone been able to...
  17. [lubuntu] Re: lubuntu successfully installed on my ppc for a few days... now won't boot

    When typing boot parameters for an already installed system, you need to substitute "Linux" where you originally used the word "live". Try this at the second boot prompt:

    Apple has definitely dropped support for PPC. All iBook G4, Powerbook G4, Powermac G4 and most, if no all Powermac G5 PPC's are on the "obsolete list". Basically, all products between 5 and 7 years...
