Fwd: Bug#728936 - Has anyone succeeded in installing Jessie on PowerPC?

Thanks, Robert.  I'm forwarding this to the bug, so it becomes part of the record.

When did you try your successful install on the YDL?  Have you tried it in the last couple of weeks?

Come to think of it:
You don't have to actually install anything to test this...

If you have a couple of minutes, could you download a recent daily-builds netinst CD and see if you can get through the first couple of screens -- maybe as far as the place where it locates the install CD.  You can abort at that point and nothing permanent will have been changed on your machine.

I have had success but I am using an old 'YDL Power Station' with PPC970MP processors.  However, I reverted back to 7.2 for needed software.

Bug#728936 is preventing me from installing/testing Jessie on any of me PowerMac test machines.

Has anyone succeeded in installing from a daily- or weekly- build netinst CD on a PowerMac in the last couple of months?
