Hi Herminio!
Yes, I have tried that as well... but honestly, I found it was much
easier to simply copy my Xorg over from a flash disk.  I did have a
kernel issue with 14.04 which required me to modprobe one of the various
snd-aoa codecs and I still could not get it running, though Fritz
pointed out that I should try using alsamixer to select the correct
hardware device.

I just think PPC 15.04 has some issues, personally.  when I tried
Lubuntu earlier on (before release) I did not find as many larger
issues... but I have been very busy and not able to devote as much time
to testing Lubuntu PPC as I would like.  Hopefully this will change :) 
Thanks for the links I will need to reference those soon enough :)  I
may try going back to 14.04 again and wrangling the sound issues... but
I am also still very busy with other projects as
