Okay..

Were you able to go back and use your ADC monitor or did FC5 puke at this?

I didn't try but if you have another monitor for the install, it would be worth having a go. I've since sold the Cube so I can't experiment.

Hello,

I am a newbie on this forum, and I am trying to install fedora on a PowerBook G4.
But the first step which is to burn the bootable iso is not working for me.
Please, if this is not the correct thread to ask this question feel free to route
me to the appropriate forum.

Thank you for your advices.

Sincerely,

Jcast

Technical details

I downloaded the CDs from the site and the sha1sum program from:
ftp://ftp.free.fr/mirrors/fedora.red...ore/5/ppc/iso/

I checked my download was OK:
sha1sum -c SHA1SUM.txt
FC-5-ppc-rescuecd.iso: OK
FC-5-ppc-disc1.iso: OK
FC-5-ppc-disc2.iso: OK
FC-5-ppc-disc3.iso: OK
FC-5-ppc-disc4.iso: OK
FC-5-ppc-disc5.iso: OK

Then I checked my cdrecord program was working fine by burning a copy of my original
MacOSX cd:
disktool -u disk2s2 ; cdrecord dev=IODVDServices driveropts=burnfree -sao speed=4 disk2.cdr
[...]
Track 02: Total bytes read/written: 2960891904/2960891904 (1445748 sectors).

Using system preference the disk shows as bootable, and I also try to boot (holding the 'C' key)
on my PowerBook G4 which worked fine.

I did this to check my process was fine. I also used disk utilities to burn and obtained also
a good bootable image.

Then I burned the disk FC-5-ppc-disc1.iso using the same command. The cdrecord burning
process worked fine but the disk is not bootable. neither does "system preferences" sees it
as bootable.

The process using disk utilities also failed.
So I am questioning whether the image available on the site is really bootable
or I did something wrong...

Hello Mike,

I posted more info on another maillist one level up, Burn PPC5 iso for PowerBook G4 problems.
I did not get successful yet, I am wondering if maybe i should use an older version to test if a
problem was introduced on recent distribs, and then track what maybe the root cause...

Sincerely,

Jean Casteres

I just successfully installed Fedora Core 6 on a G4 Cube with an ADC monitor connected. Here is the magic line to use at the "boot:" prompt:

HTML Code:
linux video=ofonly resolution=1024x768

Hey I'm with you brother.

I have a whole ware house full of 43P-140's, 43p-150, a B-50 , four H50's, two F-40's, two F-50' and 4 6F1's. (one of hte 6F1 has 16 gig of ram and 4 way 750 mhz procs, as well as 2 36 Gig drives and 12 73 gig drives that is all mine to play with. God wouldnt hat make a killer Fedora Linux box. Then I have a 620 power4 and Lpar capable and a 52A (two way power5 with two four packs of 146 gig SCSI drives. (That is a test and development, customer support box so I can't mess with that, but with dynamic LPARing I can put a Linux in a LPAR.

maybe can have a IBM PPC thread and leave all the fruit worshipers of Cupertino to have their own place.

Does this guide still apply with the current Fedora's, 8 & 9? I wouldn't mind installing it on my G4 mini mac. Are there different ways to install on an external hard drive?

Thnx.

I would say no: I did not try it and it is old.

I have a G5 PPC and I'm wondering if something is different from Fedora for I386 then PPC ?

Can I run wine ?

I know this is not the place to ask this but maybe some of you know, does Red Hat Enterprise run on PPC, can't seem to find info on it, maybe that means it's not available

- I think they are different so try to find programs for the PPC version format there may not be as many programs as the I386 version, is my theory, but it could be wrong, i'm bit of a newbie to the Fedora 10 OS on the PPC 7400 G4 500Mhz Machine so I think the only thing you can do is search the packages manager that you use for programs? I'm not sure you could find some packages for your version PPC on certain web pages too...

I am having trouble with my mac dual G5 after installing fedora 10.

I'm a bit novice in linux , and the http://www.bytebot.net/geekdocs/ibook/fedorappc.html
is over my intelligence.

-I bought a new hard drive (250 gb) clean
-Tried installing fedora 11 (did not recognize hard drive)
-downloaded fedora 10 , (burned it on dvd)
-started my dual G5 with only the 250 gb hard drive(empty )
-booted the dvd with "C"
-pressed linux
-than it booted up to install
-set all the installing parameters
-installed (successfully - at least that's how it said)
-clicked my reboot button
-and it said : " disabling swap
unmouting filesystems
Sending termination signals
sending kill signals
rebooting system
restarting system. "
- I hear the apple gong but the screen remains frozen with this "quotes"
- If i turn down the G5 from button , the next time it start's it boot's from dvd (or if i don't have the dvd in it it dose not boot - appears a folder in the middle of the screen- it requires dvd - i think)

What should i do?? (it's urgent )

Digital Audio Dual 533

I have to say I'm mighty impressed with 11 works great out of the box. Even with basic graphics everything is great. Tried Ubuntu, Gentoo, Debian to name a few. All tanked horribly. Not my first time using Fedora, though all other times were on x86 machines.

Machine:

Digital Audio Dual 533
1.5gig ram
76gig main drive
120gig slave
DVD-R/CDRW
