Re: Help with install on old Mac


Disclaimer: I am not familiar with Apple (old or new) hardware

There is the Debian Jessie installation manual for the powerpc architecture:

the 3.6.1 section could explain why you have difficulties to boot from your hard disk:
but the link indicated to upgrade is broken

http://gnats.netbsd.org/43952 provides an updated link:
 wget http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Mac_OS_X/System_Disk_Utility.smi.bin

On a side note, NetBSD, FreeBSD and OpenBSD all seem to have present version of their OS for the mac powerpc architecture:, NetBSD probably being the most advanced and supported (FreeBSD: WIP):

keep us informed if you have succeeded :-)
