    Smile Mac Ibook G4 Install of Ubuntu

    This forum is great. I want to install Ubuntu on my ibook G4 (I don't care to have a dual boot) but I can't find a simple and concise set of instructions here. Can someone please direct me to the comprehensive instructions or help me out by providing an enumerated list of steps to follow? Feel free to email me if you want to guide me.

    Thanks!

    This thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ighlight=ibook got me going on mine. Ignore all the stuff about compiling a kernel.

    Last night I started writing a comprehensive set of instructions to install lubuntu. It's quicker than the standard ubuntu. If you wait a day or two then I'll post it up here.

    My settings for 10.04 and 10.10 are on this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1691981. 11.04 natty is going to be slightly different I think. I don't think any adjustment to yaboot config files or xorg files will be necessary (but don't quote me on that).
