Helo Rogério and everybody,

I have indeed made a test last year on an iMac G5, and did not experience lock
ups anymore, so I think that the problem is solved on that side.

By the way, I have returned the now old dual G5 to the computer service at my
workplace and will not be able to make tests on it anymore as I am now using
the amd64 port on Intel hardware now. I still have the iMac G5 at home, and it
is used by somebody else. Linux is still bootable, but unless nobody else can
do tests, I would prefer not taking risks by making new installer tests. I have
updated the following wiki page accordingly (by deleting my name). 


Have a nice day, and thank you very much for your dedication to this port !
