G5 Debian Lenny Install Difficulties: iMac
Hi there ...
At home I have a G5 iMac ... the one with the logic board inside what looks
like a standard lcd monitor ... with a dvd port on the right hand side.
When I try to install debian lenny, I get to the yaboot menu readily
enough ... and then if I just press the return key ... it starts to boot.
After about 5 sec the screen turns white ... and starts giving me OF messages.
Any attempt to input info from the keyboard fails ... and I have to do a cold
I tried the video=ofonly alternative ... and the same thing happens.
Anyone out there got a simple remedy for this issue??
PS ... machine is perfectly standard ... and has only Kubuntu on it at
present. I replaced the plastic apple keyboard with one of those snazzy
ones ... made by apple. Very smart!
I'd ;like to access the bigger ppc group supporting Debian ... so how can I
get past the difficulty ... and get 'lenny' installed on my computer.
Thanks for any help.
Linux on a Mac... delightful
