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.
I downloaded the CDs from the site and the sha1sum program from:
I checked my download was OK:
sha1sum -c SHA1SUM.txt
Then I checked my cdrecord program was working fine by burning a copy of my original
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
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...
