    There should be one for Edgy located in this directory, on your favorite mirror:

    /ubuntu/dists/edgy/main/installer-powerpc/current/images/powerpc/netboot/

    Re: Where to download Ubuntu for PowerPC and other frequently asked questions

    I've successfully installed Java from the Medibuntu repo. Based upon prior experience, I selected the sdk version. In order for it to run in Firefox, you will need to build the symbolic link as set out in the Wiki page. For those interested, here's what I did, with success:

    In a terminal:
    Code:
    mkdir -p ~/.mozilla/plugins
    cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
    ln -s /usr/lib/j2sdk1.5-ibm/jre/bin/libjavaplugin_oij.so

    ssam, update your Thread topic and include the link for Xubuntu isos for PowerPC.

    Thank you very much for this information!! I too was looking to Google for the PPC versions. I knew there had to be SOMETHING out there as I had the old Old OLD 5.10 version for PPC, but I wanted to see the newest stuff on my MAC!!

    I couldn't find the md5sums for these ISOs. Does anybody know where to find them? I get

    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/rele...eisty/release/

    If you look at the top of the file list on this page, there is a file called "MD5SUMS".

    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/rele...elease/MD5SUMS

    It looks like what you got is correct (2081e7968e35480a8e3550abac3a086a).
