Re: Ununtu Repositories for 11.10 PPC
I finally have 11.10 on my G5, after a fashion...
Mini iso 64 bit 11.04 installed cli
Upgraded to 11.10 cli
couldn't use tasksel because of a broken dependency in ubuntu-desktop. Had to install a lower version of unity-common then apt-get install ubuntu-desktop worked
rebooted (still the 'old' kernel only) and got a nice login screen but a mess of colours once logged in. Updated the unity-common package (which uninstalled ubuntu-desktop and unity packages, but these are metas so it doesn't matter too much)
Rebooted again and it all works, more or less. One weirdness is that the applet in the top panel shows I have no connection but I'm writing this on Firefox right now from the machine...
