I've installed Debian (potato) on my PB 3400. I'm a Linux Newbie, and
the machine setup is different from a PC setup; also the PPC
installation routines are not complete yet and there seems to be no
documentation? Please post some URLs on Linux-on-PPC(Mac)-documentation,
I'm lost! Here are my two worst problems:
I can't print off my StyleWriter1200. I installed lpr and generated
/etc/printcap with the help of magicfilterconfig, it's set to bj200. But
which port to print to? An ext. modem works at ttyS0, the port itself is
initialized as tty00 at startup?
X... I used apt-get install xserver-fbdev, fonts and so on, a couple of
window managers just in case,... Unfortunately there is no XF86Setup for
PPC? The server dies at startup, "no valid modes found".
I then copied the working /etc/X11 from my LinuxPPC 2000 lite over to
Debian; it doesn't work. The same goes for gpm; the mouse works on the
consoles with LPPC2kl, but not with Debian.
