I have a Mac PPC G5 1.6 GHz with a DVI video card. When I attempt to boot a PPC Ubuntu installation CD Live or Alternate 10.04 I only get a white screen.
When I boot up the computer I have used the C key and option key with the same results. I even tried the Ubuntu alternate install CD Version 10 with the exact same results. Any one know what I need to do to get install media to boot with my computer? I have verified the hash for the ISO and the install CD with no problems reported. The computer does boot up fine with a Mac OS X install disk.
:confused:

I would try first with a VGA monitor using a DVI->VGA cable.
