    Which version of Ubuntu for a power mac g4?

    Hey. I'm new to the forums. I've used ubuntu for 6 months on a toshiba satellite m305-s4910 before I handed it down to my sister who uses windows 7 on it. I've got some questions for you guys I'd like answered just to put my mind at ease.

    Which version of ubuntu do you recommend for a power mac g4 MDD Dual 1.0, Radeon 9000 pro, with 2GB of RAM? I don't have a leopard/tiger disk so I need to resort to ubuntu. And how would I install it?

    And a big thanks you guys. Have a good one. ^^

    Hi, welcome to the fora.

    Lubuntu 14.04.1 PPC (not 14.04.0), which can be downloaded here:

    I use Lubuntu 14.04, recently upgraded with no hitches from 13.10.

    After my 13.10 install I had initial problems with graphics causing crashes (see here), and sound (see here), both solved.

    Good luck!
