Re: g5 install problem

Hi, I joined this group hoping for a solution so here's the
have a Powermac G5 1.6 single processor that I've tried many times to
install Debian. The install goes fine...but on reboot up comes the
black bootstrap screen which asks if I want to boot from the hd or
I choose hd but it just loops until the fan goes crazy and I have to
power it down manually. I've tried the rescue option with no luck.
thing I forgot...there is no MacosX installed just Debian. Thanks.
Just checking, Ron -- You *did* install the powerpc64 version. Right?
It wouldn't work on a G5 if you took the default (powerpc -- i.e. 32-
bit for G4's and below).
