Downloaded 6.06.1 ISO and booted CD on iMac G3 400. Had to use live
video=ofonly to see anything past the initial kernel load.
It appears to be cranking along normally until I get:
Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely
that it is not setup correctly. Would you like to view the X server
output to diagnose the problem?
Before either choice is made the lower half of the screen fills with
stuff like Last Login, version and date GNU info and one line, "bash:
no job control in this shell", followed by Admin, sudo, root
This drive currently has Ubuntu 7.04 on it. It is too much of a hog for
this little Mac, so I am trying the lower resource Xubuntu.
iMac hardware is 384 mb Ram with 160 mb WD drive. It has successfully
ran Tiger and Tiger server, so the firmware is up-to-date.
Any thoughts or known issue? I am going to attempt to flatten the 7.04
installation to unpartitioned space.
