I am willing to install Adelie Linux on my mac mini ppc G4 that works fine under OS X 10.4. I am using a CD with live version of Adelie 1.0-RC1.
Grub menu is fine, then early boot sequence is OK with coarse display settings, but as soon as screen resolution changes (I guess video drivers loading), screen turns black or starts flashing.
On the web, people having installed linux on this machine have added some kernel video parameters like:
radeon.modeset=0 radeon.agpmode=-1 radeonfb=1024x768-32
I tried the first one in grub with no luck. But, first thing first, I wonder if all these parameters are still correct with the kernel used in Adelie?
If someone could point me towards the right kernel documentation, I am happy to make some testing.
