Hard to tell unless you tell us what's not working in particular.

Well, unless you tell us what your problem is we're not able to help

Who is "they"? Driver development is done in the kernel, not in Debian.

If the kernel doesn't support a particular piece of hardware, then there
is not much we can do about it in Debian. Hardware support isn't a Debian
topic, it's a kernel topic.

How is this relevant to the eMac question? Debian runs fine on the G5, yes.

I don't know about the eMac because I have never even touched an eMac, I
think they were not that popular outside the US either.
