ubuntu on an old IMAC G3
Prior to version 8.4 and 9.4 i had ubuntu 7.04, after the crash of my harddrive i try now with ubuntu 8.04 for ppc.
After installing ubuntu (automatic with an alternate cd) i had message " no hda3 "
I installed now with the command " install-powerpc "
Now the imav try to boot.
1st stage: loading kernel went well.
Now a white screen with text like
building device tree
Last line is " returning from prominit
I get a black screen with the message " loading... please wait "
After 2 seconds, before the 1st textline will appear the harddrive stops spinning, all is down exept the powerbutton.
I think it is to protect my system against damage.
What can i do..
Previous i had a topic on a dutch ubuntuforum
