I recently installed LinuxPPC successfully on an iMac where I work.
However, I'm having a LOT of trouble intalling it on my personal machine:
7500 with Xlr8 G3/350
120 Mb RAM
MacTel Vision 3D video card
brand spankin' new IBM UltraStar 9 gig SCSI drive
external Quantum Fireball 1 Gig SCSI drive
At first, the X installer would load, but shortly after it finished
loading, it freezes (mouse pointer won't move). I tried restarting a
few times, and tried it with and without the zip and external drive
turned on. I also tried switching the internal SCSI ribbon cable from
the bus 0 connector to the bus 1 connector (as per FAQ-o-matic). The
last time I tried installing, it didn't even get to the X installer, and
hung up with the message "Kernel Panic: Machine Check" or something.
I'm thinking it has something to do with my new IBM drive.
