    bug #1637985 is resolved now. Installing 17.04 on my PowerBook G4 5,6 worked (manual install).

    FYI:

He commented, "the PowerPC port in Ubuntu has reached the end of its useful lifespan...The Technical Board has therefore determined that the powerpc port should not be included in the Ubuntu 17.04 (zesty) release. In support of this, powerpc will be dropped as an architecture in zesty as of Feature Freeze."

    PowerPC 32-bit will continue to be supported for existing Ubuntu releases, including Ubuntu 16.04 LTS that still has a few more years of support (2021).

    Hi All,

    Sad news. That means we won't get an official ubuntu MATE 17.04 release. I will update my installed development version of ubuntu MATE 17.04 as long as possible. After that I will try to release an unofficial ubuntu MATE 17.04 USB img for the X5000 and X1000.

    The development version of ubuntu MATE 17.04 works very well on my AmigaOne X1000.

    ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC with Mesa 13.0.2 and kernel 4.10 alpha5:



    By the way, the DNS service of systemd doesn't work correctly currently. Some web sites aren't accessible.

    You can fix the problem with modifying the /etc/resolv.conf. I replaced the systemd DNS server with the Google DNS server ip address.

    Code:
    sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf
    I replaced

    Code:
    nameserver 127.0.0.53
    with

    Code:
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    After a restart, systemd overrides the /etc/resolv.conf with his DNS server again. The /etc/resolv.conf is a symlink to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf. If you delete the symlink and create a file instead it's content should not be changed by resolvconf/systemd.


    Rgds,
    Christian
