I'm having a devil of time getting any verion of Linux working on
a Blue & White G3 (rev 1, 350Mhz).
My closest so far is with the latest Yellow Dog CDs. The install
would hang or panic if I didn't unselect all of the optional packages,
but after doing that it finally installed successfully. However it
always boots with the root read-only. I can boot single-user Ok,
and do some minimal poking around, but that's about it.
I would most appreciate any ideas on how to fix this!
P.S. With LinuxPPC R5 I get a panic while trying to mount /.
Unfortunately I don't remember the exact details, and I can't
check again as Yellow Dog is there now, but I don't care which
one I run at this point, if I can get either to work!
