    I told you already in post #4.

    Boot into Linux from yaboot with a 1 added, so probably
    Code:
    Linux 1
    then do as in #4.
    Then CTRL-D to resume booting

    So the Linux 1 command leads to the same error and crash, no terminal cant type a thing....

    Any other ideas?

    Tardis2424,
    Try holding down the "shift" key when you boot Linux 1,etc.

    If that does not work, when you tried 9.04, was it an install or a live cd? Since you posted that version worked, grab the live cd version of 9.04 and boot it so you have a chance to fix the driver on your installed version.

    Got a similar issue. But I dont get a ubuntu login sound, just a red screen of death after the yaboot, boot: prompt - so I dont think Im yet up to the stage where i need to fix xorg stuff. Am going to try ubuntu 9.04, with the alternate install rather than the live one. Or maybe I will download both, no live ubuntu has worked for me as yet, you said 9.04 worked as a live CD/DVD?

    Fixes for screen problems can be found on this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1798792

    For example, at the second yaboot prompt type "Linux video=ofonly nosplash"
