Linux of a Imac G5


I know of Yellow Dog Linux but would like SUSE.
Can anyone give me a link to a 64bit version SUSE.
Its a Imac G5 with the standed specs.
Thanks

i don't see any PPC support in the "hardware requirements" page:
Quote:
Processor: Intel: Pentium 1-4; AMD: Duron, Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP, Athlon 64 and Sempron
http://www.novell.com/products/linux...l/sysreqs.html

are you sure there's a PPC version of SUSE??

peonuser, in the future please don't resurrect dead threads. That said, the OP was obviously aware of PPC distros three years ago when he posted this, but he was asking specifically about a PPC SUSE, which AFAIK doesn't exist. So I'm not sure what exactly is being gained here by posting a link to Ubuntu. BTW, the OP has been off the LQ radar for nearly two years.

I will do so. With all due respect, why waste a new thread with one that is perfectly fine. Secondly, I appreciate when people do not give up on a thread. I have a lot of legacy equipment an it is neat when I can get an email notice about a subject that is important to me. If I started a new thread, then maybe the people interested in that subject might more easily get the news. I do not seem to see people cut off in other threads. Are you prejudiced against mac users or are you against people who do not have the money to buy every new toy? Old is relative......
I started in computers when in college i had to key in Fortran code on to punch cards. Now that is old. I still keep a few blank cards around to remind myself how much has changed and how things are so much easier to do now. CHILL OUT!!!!

peonuser, I have no idea what you are talking about, but the least you could do after having unnecessarily resurrected this thread is stick to the original topic instead of hijacking it with your own new discussion. Thanks.
