    Lubuntu install on a power book g4 network does not work

    so i just installed lubuntu 14.04 PPC on a power book g4 and everything works except for the internet (both wifi and ethernet) lspci -nn | grep 0200 tells me that the Ethernet controller is apple inc. but 0280 doesn't give me anything and yes i tried downloading both b43 and b43 legacy on another pc and then installing to the PPC but still no change

    try running this commands

    Code:
    modprobe -r b43
    modprobe b43
    Wireless should be working after that.

    Sorry... Should have said I did that... I've researched everything about it and everyone always said to do that but it doesn't work. And I know the wireless worked on Mac OS

    can you give us the output of lspci -vvvv? I have a PowerBook and an iBook and wireless is working on both.

    Well the kernel does not see your wireless controller. What model is this PowerBook?

    Can you post your dmesg output? When you do mark it as code so it will be easier to read.

    Thanks
