The quest: Ubuntu on a PPC
So hear the quest starts. After posting in a different Thread about how ubuntu doesn't work on my mac I got a reply which said: "Use the Disk Utility Program form the Start disk to repartition your hard drive".
Now I booted my mac with the CD and then I found out that I would have to format my hard drive first. Now hoping Scott was right about ubuntu working on Mac I backup-ed everything and than formatted my hard drive and then created 2 partitions.
So I now inserted my ubuntu 6.0 which I had already downloaded and burned about 3 Weeks ago. I clicked on install, clicked through the whole menu, next, next, next etc. So than the only option I had to Dual Boot ubuntu on my mac was to manage the partition table manually. It wasn't hard. So I split the Linux half again and created a small swap space. It then started formatting and carried on. So then came the error message "Cannot create swap space". Going back and starting again I saw it hadn't even split my Linux Partition! In a bad mood I decided to give ubuntu 2 more chances. I downloaded ubuntu 6.10 Edgy and kubuntu 6.10 Edgy. After a long time downloading I burned the 2 images to 2 CD's and restarted my mac. I booted ubuntu 6.10 first it said to press enter, Enter, then my screen should a message that said something to the likes of "Invalid incoming Signal". So pretty much pissed and inserted kubuntu. Same thing!
So that was my worst day by my desk I had had. Even the stupid windows and slack ware didn't give me such problems when I had the same monitor on my old Thunderbird!
