Re: Testers needed for PowerPC 12.04
NEVERMIND - I found that live video=radeonfb:1024x768-32@60 (per http://powerpcliberation.blogspot.co...all-guide.html) got it working.
13.04 is doing that pseudo 8 bit display deal, and I haven't been able to find a boot parameter to keep it from happening. I'm running a 12.04 session decently,
I'm on an iBook G4
Then I got wireless working on live, by loading the broadcom driver from USB. the b43 cutter is already on there.
To get the wireless working, I just did this:
tar xfvj broadcom-wl-126.96.36.199.3_mipsel.tar.bz2
sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware broadcom-wl-188.8.131.52.3/driver/wl_apsta/wl_prebuilt.o
In about 2 minutes I saw all the local wireless networks. WOO! Man, this was the easiest distro ever.
sudo modprobe -r b43 bcma
sudo modprobe -r brcmsmac bcma
sudo modprobe b43
