kaput

Saturday I removed the power supply from my computer. It is still under warranty so I sent a support request to Antec – still waiting for an answer on that.

In the meantime I attempted to get some computer satisfaction by trying to run Linux on my wife’s old iMac G3. So far this has not been successful.

First tried ‘Xubuntu 7.10’, but found out a bit later that it has several known issues and basically doesn’t work on PPC. Next tried ‘Xubuntu 6.10’, which got a bit further. It had an issue with xorg.conf which is documented so I tried going to edit the file as described, and got a load of disk I/O errors. I forget the exact message, so I’ll have to try that again to look it up.
