    [PPC] Re: Displaying Battery Charge in Indicator Area

    Brightness works for me. Try modprobe-ing i2c-dev and/or pmu_battery.

    If that fixes it, then add them to /etc/modules .

    [ubuntu] Re: Installation help!

    I think Core 2 Duo is 64 bit, not 32. You should try the 64 bit version instead. If you want, try looking at "about this mac", "more info" and seeing if it says which it actually is. Good luck!

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.10 for PPC Mac **UNDER 700 MB**??

    if it's over 702 MB, you'll have to "overburn" it.

    I did it using the "wodim" command, and added "overburn" and "sao" options to make it overburn. check out the manpage, if you want to do it with...
