Re: Problem installing Debian PowerPC Jessie on PowerMac G5 7,3 PCI-X

Hey Rick,

Quick question, how do you manually enter repositories at  
installation? For me, it always defaults to selecting a preexisting,  
non-functional mirror off a list, and I never see any option to enter  
anything manually, like it does by default in the ppc64 installations.
