    Angry Installing Ubuntu Imac G5 PowerPC ARGh

    Here's what I've done so far:

    Made sure firmware isn't locked
    Reset Nvram
    Wiped HDD
    Installed Ubuntu Onto a disc and alternatively a USB
    Tried booting holding "C" (no boot mediums appear)
    Tried installing using Open Firmware (getting messages like"partition is not a number"... sooo.. don't know if I'm doing syntaxes wrong)

    Sources I've used :

    I've spent about 5 hours trying to get this thing to work.

    Maybe I'm not doing or typing something correctly. Please let me know. Sigh.


    I've seen people installing different operating systems onto this model of computer with just the boot options prompt. Why would they be able to easily install from a different medium?
