    Thumbs down Where to download Ubuntu for PowerPC and other frequently asked questions

    Ubuntu for PowerPC is now a community supported platform (the announcement). This means that ISO downloads have mean moved to the ports section of the Ubuntu sever, and no longer on most mirrors. You can download them from

    ubuntu-12.04-desktop-powerpc.iso
    ubuntu-12.04-alternate-powerpc.iso

    There is a more complete and up to date list of download locations at: Ubuntu PowerPC Downloads

    Answers to other PowerPC questions can be found in the Ubuntu PowerPC FAQ. And there is useful information at Ubuntu PowerPC Known Issues

    Re: Where to download Ubuntu for PowerPC and other frequently asked questions

    Do you have any idea where repositories are? Or is there any available at all?

    Re: Where to download Ubuntu for PowerPC and other frequently asked questions

    Can somebody expand the explanation of how to do a proper 7.04 full Xubuntu install? Right now it simply says "It would be possible to install with this and then upgrade to the final release." which is a little vague for newcomers.

    Does anybody know why there's no Xubuntu PPC final? Arguably it's the most useful of all the Ubuntus for PPC users, since it tends to cater to machines of a spec lower than that you'd want to comfortably run OSX on.

    wish I had found this thread earlier - had to go through Ubuntu->Kubuntu migration because I could not find the PPC ISO with Google

    A note on repositories: I also had problems in finding repositories, also for Austria, the mirrors that are configured by the installer do not offer any PPC-binaries, so this is actually a bug.

    You can use this handy repository-generator but be sure the mirror you select offers PPC-packages (just open one of the repository-URLs in your browser and look in dists/<your distro>/ if it contains a PPC-directory.
    In my case, I had to switch to "Germany", you may want to pick the closest match that offers PPC-packages.

    Seems repositories are all available through all official mirrors.

    Quick question... can I do a dist-upgrade from a previous install with these sources or would I be best served to download an ISO an do a FRESH install?
