So I have an old g5 Powermac sitting here and I wanted to put it to use. I booted from the live DVD, and everything appeared to go without a hitch. However, when I attempted to reboot into the newly installed system, I got a flashing apple finder logo with a question mark on it.
It gets to the yaboot screen, and defaults to booting linux. it immediately starts flashing a finder questionmark, and after a few seconds the system reboots again. It’s getting really frustrating, and I’m really not all that good with PowerPC hardware. It does not boot to a point where I can type in any parameters, so the recommendations from other threads to use them wont help here.
On another note, the live CD doesn’t detect any sound hardware ,but I guess that’s an issue that can be solved later.
I really would rather not have to install mac osx or the impossible to use MorphOS on this machine.
Is there anything I can do? lubuntu is also suffering from the exact same problems in this case as well.
