right after downloading LinuxPPC this morning, i installed it on a PowerMac
G4 at work (cause i wanted to test installation, and there was no important
data on it's harddisk, so i didn't had to back up).
everything worked fine and after a while i got linux running on the machine.
back at home i wanted to install it the same way on my G4, but it didn't
work. everytime i want to start from cd the computer nothing happens.
after an hour i was really enerved and went back to work to try on other
G4s, on every machine it worked perfectly instead of one, and that's the one
that has the firmware update (that one that can cause problems with the
dimms) and my mac at home got the update too.
can anybody confirm that the firmware update is the cause, and is there a
way to remove the update? or any other solution to the problem?
