I have tried installing Ubuntu PPC on my Blue and White, 300MHz
(early) Yosemite G3.  I first had a problem with eth being detected
and used the "modprobe bmac" discussed on another post.  That worked

After initial reboot I got the following message:

audit(1095676813.240:0): initialized
hda: MDMA, cycleTime: 120, accessTime: 75, recTime: 45
hda: Set MDMA timing for module, reg: 0x00211526
Starting Ubuntu...
pivot_root: No such file or directory
/sbin/init: 424: cannot open dev/console: No such file
Kernel panic: Attempt to kill init!

I have had Debian 3.1 Sarge running on this computer.
