Hi. My name is Michael,
I'm a newbe at Linux on PPC (Got various distro's up and running on
Since I am first and foremost a Mac OS X user, i am spoiled with the
ease of idiot proof installations..
Please forgive me if i ask 'Newbie" style questions.
i have a spare Blue & white power Macintosh G3 (400mhz) i got off of
ebay for $ 50.00 just to play around with.
I was really happy with the announcement thaT SUSE BETA 10 was
released for PPC, so I thought I would give it a try.
I got the 1st CD to boot, and the GUI installer to run.... It runs
well until it gets to reformatting & Resizing partitions.
i am giving Suse a whole 160 Gig hard drive to play with.. (sdb) ...
Well it will choke on formating & resizing... then proceed to begin
install and locks up 1/4 through ..
I am sure the lock up is from the unsuccessful fromat/partition.
Can some one help me with a clue here ?
I have been successful in getting Debian and Mandrake to format/
partition, so it seems to lie within SuSE.
