mate gives the same result - don’t have a lot of time to fiddle around with it - but IO will try again at some stage and report back on any success - its very interesting that yellowdoglinux 6.2 runs to graphics display no problem but debian 8 doesn’t - maybe there is something to be learned form ydl about how to get these old clunkers going again...


We may have a fix.  Please see the discussion in the debian-powerpc list at

Peter Saisanas has build a fixed kernel for us G5 users that he wants us to try.   In that thread, he gives very complete instructions for how to install it.

Contact me if you have trouble.
