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 for details. 3) From http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk/ install the following packages: drm-trunk-module-src xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk xlibmesa3-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 2003) with
ATI Mobiliti Radeon 9000 (64MB DDR SDRAM).

Can anyone send me a link, where i can find the full configuration for this Hardware (Including the Kernel for Download)? I installed woody on a x86 Architecture myself and i think it's more easy to download a tested configuration.
(I'm using a PPC Architecture for the first time).

Thanks for your help.
