    Question about ibook


    I want to try to install Gentoo on my laptop. Unfortunately it is an old laptop. It is an ibook with a powerpc 3 700 mHz processor. It has 128 of ram in it. Will Gentoo work on it. if so do i download the 32 bit one or the 64 bit? Please respond. Thanks

    their is no need of starting seperate thread for each of your problem. Post all your problems in a single thread


    am not sure of Gentoo requriments but i guess your system just satisfies minimum requriments

    check out this poll which may help you in selecting a distro http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/cof...-hardware.html

    If you are looking for a distro which is Ubuntu based try out Xubuntu

    Just go here and select a mirror that is close to you.
    Then select "releases", then "ppc", and if you are not sure if you have a 32-bit or 64-bit, get the 32-bit as it can run on both architectures.
