Performa 6400: LinuxPPC 2000 Q4 install issues

Post by c a l a n d » Sun, 28 Jan 2001 12:50:37

I just received my CD set from LinuxPPC Inc. and I'm having problems
booting from the disk or installing. I'm getting a black screen with
four lines of text with the last line being "booting...". The system
stays that way for several minutes (like over 5 minutes). I end up doing
a power restart. Once the system restarted itself ending up in MacOS.

The "User's Guide" says "Most Performas except the 6300 and 6400 cannot
boot from the CD or use LinuxPPC at all. Does anyone know of something
I've missed with regard to a 6400?

I'm attempting to install on a separate dedicated SCSI dive.

I tried to install LinuxPPC 2000 Q4 on my Performa 6400 (108Mo/L2 256Ko/
Formac Proformance Lite 4Mo/ internal HD SCSI with a 1.5 Mo partition
