Hey everyone, I recently got myself an apple imac g5, and decided to try to install debian sarge on it. I've been playing around with livecds and that sorta thing for a while, and have tried to get them to boot by holding down the "c" key. I've gotten yaboot to load in all of them, but after that the machine would freeze up. I just attempted to boot debian sarge netinstall disk, and I used the "install-power4" option in yaboot, which i read would correspond to a g5 chip athttp://www.debian.org/releases/stabl...h02s01.html.en
. The screen is now locked up, with the following text on it:
Welcome to Linux, Kernel 2.6.8-power4
Linked at :0xc0000000
frame biffer at :0x98008000 (phys, 0x90000000 (log)
id mach(): done
I don't know what any of this means, and the keybaord is completely locked, no key is responding at all. If anyone has any advice as to how to get debian loaded on an imac g5, help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
