    Lubuntu 14.04.1 LTS on Imac G5 Powe PC instalation issues.

    Hello
    I have Imac G5 Power PC with nvidia geforce.
    I run Lubuntu 14 live cd on it and everything was great - no problems so i decided to install this distrybution on my imac. After installation, there is a problem with display screen. After screen with Lubuntu logo, white screen appear with black horizontal lines and nothing more. But i can still run live version from dvd and its working with no problem. How can i fix this problem

    Thanks

    More than likely you need to either get or set up the xorg.conf file appropriate for your computer . . . you can search here or on the PowerPCFAQ to find out how to do that exactly . . . .

    e.e.p.

    Also try on the yaboot prompt this

    "Linux video=radeonfb:1280x854-32@60"

    Substitute the underlined portion with your display settings.

    Notice that he said "with nvidia geforce" . . . which would possibly indicate some other boot parameters.

    Cool. You were trying to help . . . but sometimes a good thing isn't always a good thing, all of the time . . . . : - ) Should be the boot params will be listed in the FAQ . . . but these days the 14.04 for PPC seems to need the xorg.conf file to be set up . . . . Which requires some reading to be done by the OP.

    e.e.p.

    I hear ya, that was a huge lesson I learned when I went through an Arch install. All the info is there if you only read the wiki.
