Re: CD Debian Lenny

Manufacturer specifications:

Debian classification:

  • All current Apple computers released since 2006, run on Intel processors, and boot using EFI (a successor to the earlier BIOS).
  • Older Apple computers (1998–2005) run on PowerPC processors, and boot using OpenFirmware.
  • Even older Apple computers (pre-1998 Macs) run on Motorola 68000 (m68k) processors.
Most pages refer to current (Intel-based) models, but powerpc is also a supported architecture. m68k has not been supported since etch (2007), but packages still exist in unstable.

Debian supported:

Hi Art,

Is there any reason you need specifically Lenny?  Current Debian for PowerPC is Jessie, which is a couple of generations beyond Lenny.

Is it that your processor is a G3, not G4?  I don't know if the more recent Debian versions support G3 any more, but that would be a good reason for using Lenny.

In any case, the DVD iso for Lenny for PowerPC is downloadable for free at

Feel free to ask at debian-powerpc@lists.debian.org if there is anything else I or others can do to help.

I would like to acquire a DVD version of  Debian Lenny, in order to try recovering an ibook G3 Dual (M6497).

CAn you help me in any way?  Do you know of any other Linux version that might fit this computer, which you would recommend ?

I intend to use this machine on the road, mostly  for writing documents and emails, and editing simple recordings of my guitar.

nice day for all of you that do such a nice work to help people around the world,
