Lubuntu 14.04.5 LTS blank screen during boot up on powerbook g4


hello

trying to install Lubuntu 14.04.5 LTS on a powerbook g4 17 inch screen

justing during boot up of the cd i see the Luguntu logo for a few minutes after that screen goes blank.

sounds like it could be a video driver issue. any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Anthony

I don't own a Mac. So the best I can point you to is

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Intel_iMac

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1525615

http://askubuntu.com/questions/76525...-menu-for-os-x

http://www.macworld.co.uk/how-to/mac...n-mac-3637265/

Seems

Code:
 linux /casper/vmlinuz.efi            file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet splash nomodeset --
the nomodeset option is what is needed to keep a display screen going on through the boot process. But I don't own a mac so I can't swear to it.
