    Trying to install Lubuntu 16.04 power pc on my G4

    I was wondering if there is any way to install this without booting to the live cd. About 3 minutes after booting to live, the screen flickers once and the system is frozen. I have a 1.5GHZ PowerPC G4 with 2GB RAM. I think I may not have enough RAM to go live and also install Lubuntu. Note that even the live session freezes after looking through a few applications.

    Linux is NOT Windows. Doesn't PRETEND to be, Doesn't WANT to be; Don't try to MAKE it be.

    @mickee384:2GB RAM should be plenty of RAM, but usually these problems are relating to video card . . . did you run some boot parameters?? Or did you try any of the "nomodeset" options?? Seems like each machine has its own specific boot parameters that you need to run in the Yaboot window . . . to get the live video running . . . . Similar to possibly needing to "configure xorg" . . . ?? Might want to search around on the interweb for your specific machine and card??
