    Installing Ubuntu 12.04 on a PPC G5 Mac Pro


    I am trying to install Ubuntu on my Mac Pro. I am completely new to linux (mainly a mac user). I have tried installing using both the live CD and alternate install CD. The issue I am having is the b43 driver issue. I can not resolve this. Every forum says to use the "b43.wireless=blacklist" command, but I am not receiving the same prompts as they are at boot, so I have no idea where to write the command.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    Thanks!

    You are receiving different prompts, because Linux on x86 'standard' PC's uses GRUB as bootloader. Linux on PPC uses yaboot as bootloader.

    However, I'm not entirely sure. To test this, could you provide the outpuf of:

    Code:
    cat /etc/yaboot.conf
    Please?
