Yesterday I tried:


Oct 23 and Oct 22.

both failed :(

both of them with the same problem:

It all began great (install64 video=ofonly), but when
installing the base sistem it give an error.  The
error is about initrd-tools. The system can't
authenticate that package?
(WARNING: untrusted versions of the following packages
will be installed!)

What kind of problem is that? What can i do?

Anyone knows about an image that works?

The installing problem:

The G5 is not mine. The owner is a friend of mine,
that lives in another city. Yesterday I went to that
city, tried to install, failed, and return to my own
I'll back to that city to a second try nextweek, maybe
the weekend. So, i need a working image. I can't be
traveling until it is fullly installed. I have no time
to test new images. I need a working image.

And my friend is a little bit disapointed about linux,
so, this time it have to be a very good impresion.
