I've a powerbook for which i stripped down a lubuntu installation to
something similar to crunchbang, an openbox+tint2 DE - and to stick with
kernel 3.2 which still offers sound support for ppc (any newer kernel
IME does not). But i also played around with jwm (with the gentle help
of israel).

Now, if the dependencies of ToriOS are not so "heavvy" (are they?) may
be one could try to "copy" the 32-bit installation toward a ppc hardware (?)

Thanks in any case!
