View Full Version : [ubuntu] ibook g3 9.04 unable to login

July 15th, 2009, 04:45 PM

Last night i did a fresh install of 9.04 on my ibook g3,
I followed the install, did a cli install from the alternate cd,
The installation went fine, and all looked good, it booted fine no issue,
However when i tryed to login with the login details i put in during the installer, it said, it couldnt.
It seems like it cant find the username nor the password connected with it, i put in during the installer,

This seems weird,
Any ideas would be very helpful.

Thanks much.

Sorry no ideas,

just questions... if you don't mind :] I have a 500mhz, dual usb G3. It runs Dapper Drake fine, but I want to use it for firewire recording... which on Ubuntu 6 seems far out of my league. Some people have been helping me out here and they recommended 9.04. I also seem to have no trouble with install but then the display shows the desk top in the top left corner, with a multi colored band at the bottom & repeats part of the image over again. All of the right side and bottom of the screen are blank [?]

Have you experienced this... any suggestions?

Thanks for even reading :]
