Linux distro's for a G4 imac
Hello, I currently run ubuntu on my pc laptop and have caught the linux bug. I now want to stick a distro on my mac and am looking for advice on which distro's will go on easily.
Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

If it means anything to you, I've had no trouble at all with Fedora 9 on my Macbook Pro 4,1. Granted, I'm on an Intel chip and you're using PPC, but Fedora's a pretty solid distro over all and it runs pretty well. I actually have a friend who runs Fedora 8 on his G4, and he has no bug issues. Just make sure you get a two/three-button mouse. =)Registered Linux User: #479567
