    Default BT on ibook G3

    Hey everyone, was wondering... I have a ibook powerpc G3 600Mhz 128MB ram and im curious if I can install BT on it. I've found quite a bit of info googling, but one thing that is a problem is almost every distro I stick in the ibook it just spits it back out as if it just can't read it

    You're going to need a linux distro compiled for powerpc chips. Backtrack isn't so it won't work. I know for sure you can still get yellowdog linux for ppc, and there's an Ubuntu distro for ppc.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    All forgiven.

    I was in a bad mood when I posted that. Usually I just move it and b*tch at people a little.

    Well at least you was in a good enough mood to not move it at that time

    @ Barry

    I downloaded xubuntu 7.9 I believe, burned it, inserted for some reason this PC just keeps spitting back out almost any disc 2 seconds after I insert it. That version supposedly supports ppc so I would have thought it would have worked.

    Would you happen by chance to recommend a tutorial for this generation of the ibooks? About the only one's I can find are one's for the mac's running intel chips.

    I've thrown the regular ppc Ubuntu, I think it was 7.10 on bronze keyboard powerbooks and it worked. I'm pretty sure that's also what I have on one of the old clams at home, I'll have to check later though. It was basically just insert disk and boot holding down the c key. Might want to check the md5 of the disk, maybe got corupted?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    eehh... I doubt the image got corrupted, because it spits out almost every disc and i was looking for the regular ubuntu ppc version, but could find it just kubuntu, xubuntu and another one I'll check again. Also thanks I didn't know to boot holding c once I get the correct disc

    I'll find the ubuntu you used and post back.

    Okay I found the ubuntu 7.10 ppc and tried that, it does read the disc as well as an older version 5.04 I think that I found laying around, but it will not boot from the disc. I tried boot holding c, tried command c, nothing I tried bypassing the internal hdd but then it also ejected the disc.

    I did reset the pram and nvram following these commands:

    Will it boot a mac os cd?? Sounds almost like you have a dud cd.
