bus error


hi,

i have an powermac g4 and wanted to try install linux.

But if i proceed with installation often will be displayed an bus error / L1 cache error during machine check processing after that the powermac stoped working and hang up.

I have really no idea how that could happen...

If anyone can guide me how to solve maybe this problem it would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance

raleeha

Possibly there's something a bit wrong with the hardware or the install media. Did you check the MD5 sums of your media? Was the machine running OS X OK before you tried to install Linux?

A bit more info on the distro you're trying to install would be helpful.
