Been a while since I last used Ubuntu on my Powerbook G4, and I wanted to know if it's safe to go back? There were a lot of problems when I last used it. Didn't detect my RV350, so I had to do something for 3D to work again. Going into suspend would crash the machine, but manually doing it wasn't a problem. No power save for the CPU to scale, though I was able to get something going with another piece of software. Gnash actually worked, but was slow with flash, and didn't have proper codec for YouTube.

Has all this been resolved?

flash is still a problem, although Lucid Lynx and Debian Squeeze both support HTML5 youtube video.

HTML5 youtube video through FireFox?
