  1. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    I did not put 'video=ofonly' in there, that is the default. I only added 'nouveau.modeset=0'. Just as a test, I tried removing 'video=ofonly', but that just brought back the white screen. I had...
  2. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    I don't know enough about the cvt command, but perhaps the results were the same for 'cvt 800 600' because we specified a given resolution, and at that resolution, they might be the same for even...
  3. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear. Yes, I have tried it without nouveau.modeset=0 . I end up with a white screen in each of those instances. I always tried booting with and without that...

    @rsavage

    I have tried your instructions in post #19

    Using the cvt command, I have come up with the following xorg.conf file:

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "X.org Configured"

  5. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    No luck. I also tried the suggestion in this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1691595 ) of changing the 'nv' in the xorg.conf to 'nouveau', but that didn't help either.

    I will...

    I found this:

    It seems a bit old, but I will see where it takes me.
  7. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    Ok. I have found two xorg.conf files that are supposed to work for the iMac G4 (lamp model). I have tried both, but have had no success with either.

    With the one list for that iMac at this...
  8. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    Post 11 above was exactly the problem. It is interesting that the date stamp supercedes the version number. I was able to install, and then install ubuntu-desktop. Unfortunately, even after...
  9. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    First, I ran 'sudo apt-get install unity-common', which only installed partly. Next, I tried, as you suggested, the following:

  10. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    Using 'tasksel' , aptitude failed (100). So, I instead entered 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop'. This resulted in the following message:

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean...
  11. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    Upgrade installed smoothly, but after reboot, no joy. :(

    I get a BusyBox prompt after it doesn't find the hard drive. It appears that the /dev/disk is not found by default.

    Following your...
  12. [PPC] Re: iMac G4 minimal install cli 11.04 leads to white screen

    That seems to have worked! Thank you. I will continue with the rest of your instructions to upgrade to 11.10 from the command line, and then install the GUI. Wish me luck!

    Quick question - if I...
