    Unhappy lubuntu 12.10 black screen terminal only (no graphics at all)

    Hello, I'm a totally newbie on this, and I was attempting to install Lubuntu 12.10 for ppc on my dual 2ghz g5 mac. When installing everything will come as supposed , but when I boot into lubuntu...nothing just a black terminal screen. I tried the no video solution and nothing...I tried installing ubuntu desktop and nothing...so far I don't know what is wrong or what could have gone possible wrong with it:

    This is the kind of Video card I have

    Chipset Model: GeForce 6600
    Type: Display
    Bus: PCIe
    Slot: SLOT-1
    PCIe Lane Width: x16
    VRAM (Total): 256 MB
    Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
    Device ID: 0x0141
    Revision ID: 0x00a4
    ROM Revision: 2149
    Displays:
    Cinema:
    Resolution: 1680 x 1050
    Depth: 32-Bit Color
    Core Image: Hardware Accelerated
    Main Display: Yes
    Mirror: Off
    Online: Yes
    Quartz Extreme: Supported
    Rotation: Supported
    Display Connector:
    Status: No Display Connected
    How can I make this lubuntu thing to work, and by the way it doesn't boot normally to osx, I mean the lubuntu 12.10 that I have installed. I have to put the leopard disk on it and force the reboot like 3 times and finally boot on the installer CD (leopard) and erase the ubuntu partition.
    I have an OSX extra hd 150gb and I'd like to have lubuntu or ubunto for ppc there.

    I hope someone can help me.

    try clicking Ctl-Alt-F1 to see if you can get into terminal login screen instead of the GUI Desktop login screen
