Pruning the forum database.
Yep, a 5,2 with a dual core 2Ghz, 2gig ram, 500gig drive I ripped out of a $49 usb drive. Slow by todays standards but it works.
Congratulations, John. I'm crossing all my fingers and toes that your Linux experience on your Macbook will be a pleasant one.Oh, and don't worry about omskates and me. We're not Siamese.
Thats OK, I like Siamese, had one named Jen while growing up. Now I have two giant Maincoon sisters to drive me nuts. Got to love them while I can, they are on loan to me for the next 12 to 18 years.

I have a i book g4 that I installed linux mint ppc on and it ran quite well. I put leopard back on it because flash support for linux on macs is non existent. It is a shame. I would install linux on it in a heartbeat again if I could get flash support.
"Youtube finally works"Submitted by linuxopjemac (mintppc.org)on Sat, 08/20/2011 - 19:33This is something I wanted to make public a long time ago, but it never really happened, until this day. I just installed the new build of Iceweasel 6 on my Pismo and to my surprise I saw a video on a local Dutch website here. Although too slow, it showed that video was possible. So I headed upstairs to my development box, which is a G4 MDD with a more powerful Radeon 9000 pro card in it. To my surprise that video played well. So, then I thought: let's go for Youtube! The regular flash Youtube does not work, but if you activate HTML5 on the http://youtube.com/html5 page, you get streaming video!! This is incredibly good news. Wow man, this is somehing people have been waiting for, for a very long time, ever since I was playing with Linux on PPC.So if you people out there are still not convinced that MintPPC is the answer to Apple not giving support anymore for the PPC architecture, I don't know anymore. Together with the new 9.3 MintPPC installer, installing MintPPC was never easier. I did it today on my Pismo. All I had to do is download the xorg.conf file for this machine and everything worked.MintPPC is the replacement for OSX.
