    I see you have a larger HD than standard so this may help?
  3. [SOLVED] Re: eMac Can't Drop into a Shell after 10.04 Install

    That'll be the Airport Extreme card slot. Best left as it is and using a usb-wifi dongle if you need one.
  4. [PPC] Re: 11.04 PPC install w/ ATY,R420 (x800 xt) AGP problems

    The ATI 9800 pro works fine on my PPC boxes. My card is not used atm as I use a ACD with the slaveware (Apple Display Connector) and my 9800 pro card is a tweaked pc version so has dvi and vga
  5. [SOLVED] Re: eMac Can't Drop into a Shell after 10.04 Install

    The Debian dev that asked me to test and supply him with the details also fixed the emacs mini...
  6. [PPC] Re: Old imac g3 what should it boot and how to

    128mb of ram is half the minimum recommended for Lubuntu. You really need to build your desktop from the alternate install CD. In that case you'd be better off installing Debian getting better PPC...
  7. [PPC] Re: Ubuntu 10.10 PPC - G4 Cube Sound - Via USB Speakers

    I have a live Debian etch CD but you can't install from it and my tests would be of little use to you as my emac now has an LCD screen fitted. You would almost certainly need to tweak your xorg from...
