On Tuesday night I successfully installed Yellowdog 3.0.1 on my old Mac Performa 6360, but I do have a couple of questions related to configuring and installation.
My Performa 6360 has a Sonnet G3 400 MHz upgrade card installed. When I checked to see what processor the computer recognised in Yellowdog, it stated that it could see the original stock processor, a PowerPC 603e 160MHz. Is there a Linux driver available so that I can use this upgrade card?
During the Linux bootup process, it recognises the built-in video as "Valkyrie", which is the code name for the video device for the Performa. When I went to adjust the number of colours for my monitor to thousands of colours, the system insists on setting it to 256 colours. Why does it keep defaulting to 256 colours? Why will it not retain the setting I am asking for?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
