Hi all,

It seems we finally got most issues with the graphical installer on powerpc
sorted out, thanks to all those who tested, and to Attilio who provided the
patch. I have done a build which you can find at :

(Well, in an hour or so, once i finish uploading it).

We would like people to test the gtk-miniiso images, both on 32bit and 64bit
machines, and would probably be most interested in tests from those not using
radeon graphic cards, like those having nvidia based powermacs.

A list of known issues, and already tested hardware can be found here :


Where you can see what is missing. Please report here, and/or file in that
page, if you have hardware not yet tested.

prep boxes are known not to work yet (needs 2.6.18 -prep kernel), and i am not
sure about the oldworld status, but it would be interesting to know if those
images can be booted with bootx.
