    How TO: make Ubuntu 10.04 Bootable for PPC Mac

    Okay, I've downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 .iso for PPC mac. What do I do to the iso file to make it bootable? Keep in mind, all the stuff that i am going to be doing, will be done on a mac.

    P.S. Please keep instructions as easy to understand as possible

    P.S. AGAIN I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 (for ppc mac) .iso from " http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/daily-live/current/ "

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Follow this thread and replace live-nosplash-powerpc by live-nosplash-powerpc64.

    To burn an iso, look here.

    Hope that helps.

    X will be a total different problem. We will have to see if we can get that working. Don't expect it to run automatically after installation.

    You can also look here for other stuff after installation.

    To perhaps clarify, the iso file is a an image file of a bootable disk, which, when you burn it using the tutorial mentioned above, will produce a bootable disk. When you boot using the parameters also mentioned above, this should result in a successful boot.

    I hope that helps.
