Re: Trying to install on a powerbook G4
Same problem here (cf my thread) with a Powerbook Alu G4 1.33GHz and GeForce FX Go5200 graphics, same solution (noaccel) and the only one that works (also get the blank screen or psychedelic colours, depending on what other boot commands I use).
Just wanted to check whether or not any progress had been made on this issue.
Other pbm is that playing MPEG video eats up almost 100% of CPU, Ok when playing the video in its native size, but when I set it to full screen the video slows down to like half normal speed, though audio continues to play at normal speed and therefore quickly gets out of sync. (but the video plays until the end, while all controls in the player's GUI (gnome-mplayer is the only one I got working) behave normally.
Not sure the issues are related, although obviously both have to do with limited support for NVidia graphics chipset on PPC based Mac's.
