    1. I haven't seen anyone report mesa 3d working with 3.2 or later on a PPC with a R128 having less than 16 Meg VRAM. I'm curious if it is all your graphics or separate issues.

    Mesa support was dropped (upstream) beginning in 12.04(3.2) for several cards which include Rage 128 and Rage on iMacs. This is 3D(OpenGL) support.

    If after install, you CAN boot into low color using video=ofonly nouveau.modeset=0, press <ctl><alt><F1> to get to a prompt and login.
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    make it look like this:

    Good work! Put whatever you are typing after Linux at the boot: prompt in the append section. Same place you saw "quiet splash" and then sudo ybin -v.
    Enjoy 13.04.

    Aside from your video which it sounds like you got working, your installer sounds like this bug report. Maybe the comments there can help.

    I would agree PRAM not likely culprit if other installs are booting fine. But, I have seen stranger things.
