Ubuntu Linux on a PPC iMac G5


I'm a newbie, and I have recently turned my old iMac G5 into a Linux box by using Ubuntu 8.04 for the PowerPC architecture. Anybody else try this? What luck have you had with finding repositories for this distro? Anybody find a Flash work around? Any comments would be appreciated.

John

Ubuntu 8.04 is way out of date and totally unsupported. If you want a supported distribution for your Mac try Debian.
