Re: Installation on PowerBook G4 (M8859/A) 1GHz ATI 9000
This can be done, but there are a couple tricks.
This is my machine. I found
http://www.cattlegrid.net/~christophe/titanium/ which told how to
install on the previous version of the G4, but it worked for me.
Basically, the steps are this:
1) Install from the woody install CDs. Make sure you choose the
install24 option (2.2 will not work).
2) Get a newer kernel (I got 2.4.22), compile it, and install it
(needed to get X working). Be careful that you do not mess up the
keyboard! Take a look at http://www.debian.org/ports/powerpc/keycodes
3) From http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk/ install the
following packages: drm-trunk-module-src xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk
This should get you a basic system.

Dear Debian Users,
i want to install woody on a PB G4 1GHz, 1MB DDR L3 Cache (from Spring
ATI Mobiliti Radeon 9000 (64MB DDR SDRAM).
Can anyone send me a link, where i can find the full configuration for
Hardware (Including the Kernel for Download)? I installed woody on a
Architecture myself and i think it's more easy to download a tested
(I'm using a PPC Architecture for the first time).
Thanks for your help.
