iMac G3 700MHz and MintPPC
I'm an happy owner of a iMac G3, 700MHz (PowerPC 750 CXe), 1GB RAM, SSD HD, ATI RAGE Ultra 16MB VRAM.
I would like to try to install a linux distro which is light and modern (maintained).
Would you recommend trying MintPPC? Has anybody managed to install it on iMac G3 with a working X? Is there any way to install or compile MESA 7 which is the last version supporting my VGA?
Thank you for your time and for the great project. Keep it up.
The only way to find out is trying. I have MintPPC running on a Pismo, with an ATi Rage card.
Ok than as soon as I will try it I will "stalk" you with xorg.conf parameters, MESA 7 deb packages etc.. 😊
I also know most of the issues with iMac G3 is the keyboard combination that you need to use in order get the installation to start.
Thank you for your reply.
