A long time ago, I ordered some Ubuntu 5.10 cd-roms, which never got used, but I recently got an old Powerbook G4 with a broken hard drive. I replaced the hard drive and decided to put Linux on the thing (simply because I don't have a Mac OS cd rom lying around ).
Now I tried the Mac Live CD, and everything worked fine, i saw the loading thingies, but afterwards the screen just stayed orange, nothing happened.
I downloaded Xubuntu 6.06 and the Live CD works fine, but the installer keeps crashing. I decided I'd try to install Ubuntu 5.10 on the powerbook, but now when I boot it, I get a logon screen, but when I enter my name and password, I just get the orange screen again.
I've been googling this problem for over an hour now and the only useful thing I found was a guy saying some things worked when he chose to use a GNOME session, which doesn't work for me. All the other topics returned by Google were people with similar problems, but no answers.
Should I just try a newer version (which?) or is there some way to work around this?
