ooh, i forgot!.

my mac g5 has 1tb sata hdd, which is
complety empty!.

There' nothing on it, not even a bootloader!.

Is it possible to insert ubuntu linux or
any other powerpc based linux distro's dvd,
and boot / install from the dvd ?.
Do i not need any sort of bootloader from
osx or similar things to be able to boot
from linux dvd ?.

I've never gotten a virus in my years of doing stuff since Vista. (XP was a magnet for that shit, I don't miss it) I download a lot of stuff. Go get a torrent client, grab a magnet, burn it, you win.

It helps to uncheck shit when installing shit.

Whilst I understand your point, and also the fact that downloading an ISO of software you own a license for is not in itself necessarily illegal, I would point you to the red warning message at the top. Mr Neko wishes (understandably) to keep this forum clean of any dodgy activity...

Was more addressing the fear of malware.

And considering the rampant amount of... less than tolerant words around here, I don't see much moderation.

believe me , its not worth it.
i saw a geniune osx leopard dvd used
for sale in the news paper for 25$.

i will not download torrent, set if
a keylogger installs and steels my
licensed dearly bought software, i would
kill my self, offcourse not literally!.
to be honsterly , lots of the torrent is filled
with crap, malware.
i would only get stressed downloading
from unknown sources.
I will have so much peace in my mind
paying those damn 200$ for the osx or
just a used osx.
There is to most on stake here.
If anyone gets happy doing torrent,
thats there problems!.
I just wont download torrent period!.

The rules do not say anything about less than tolerant words. Only pirating. There are certain weasel words to bend the rules but generally it is a big no-no. Even though a lot of this stuff is abandonware, and/or it's not *really* pirating because he already owns a license, it's not something this site would rather be involved with. While OSX is free now, that wasn't always the case (especially back in leopard's day)

I forgot to say thank for you answer!.

Thank you for you answer!.

Anyway i did have a look at MorpOs
website, i did'nt anything about MorpOs
costing anything, so i guess its free!.
I've download the iso on my mac intel
and burn it with "disk utility" as iso,
with my mac superdrive burner.
I've then have a try booting from
the MorpOs and install.

Why ubuntu 10.04 wont display anything,
is properly because my powermac dosent
support the graphics, i believe its a
ati radeon 256mb!.

but there's a fix, which would work, i
thing?, by typing videooff in shell at
booting time!.

Let us know how morphos runs because I've looked into buying a g4 laptop to run it. Neat concept.

MorphOS is sold as "the first hit is free." It has a timer. Still, it does appear to be nicely designed, though if I want my AmigaOS jones I have a real A4000 to run 3.9 on instead.

Yes, i will look into it and see how it goes!.

I only want MorpOs and Ubuntu 14.04 or
Lubuntu to test and check hardware.
( believe me, i tried that couple of times, with
no sucess!!).

If it works , i've get a real osx leopard.

Now i remember, MorpOs is that
Amiga OS thing!.
There was or is, an alternative Amiga
OS called Atikos ( cant remember the
exact name of this OS!).
Atikos or whatever it is called is 100%
free and is allso for x86 architecture!.

Yesterday, i did downloaded MorpOs iso
and Lubuntu (power mac g4-g5 platform
version!).

I allready burnded the Iso's on
two dvd's.

Now , its time to test, if every things
works, later on!.

I've try to connect my mac usb superdrive,
to boot those two OS!.
I've allso try the internal drive , if
it works!.

I got a used "new" 1tb hdd and cdrom
for mac, which i will try later on!.

Do you mean AROS? That's available for amd64 machines.

Tiger will work on a G5 too, though it may be later revisions only.

Yes, i mean Aros!.
Anyway i tried MorpOs and Lubuntu
changed the dvd drive and allso changed
the hdd with 1tb sata hdd ( western digital).
The hdd is connected to the bottom sata
cable , powe cable is allso connected offcourse!.
I did turned on the mac and did hold down
the "alt" while booting from internal drive
with lubuntu linux.
After a few seconds, a boot menu appears
showing lubuntu linux, did choose lubuntu
icon and the big arrow -->.
The lubuntu linux starts to boot, then
a command prompt appears,
did press enter.
Lubuntu is loading for a few minutes,
screen is showing, "found display adapter,
pci 0".
Then black screen appears, nothings
happens!.

I allso tried MorpOs, dosent even boot?!.

I dont think it is the graphics card, nor
dvd drive, psu or mouse or keyboard!.

Maybe it is the motherboard or ram?.

I did however tried ubuntu 10.04,
every things worked with installing ubuntu
10.04.

Only when ubuntu restarting and finish
reading OS, black screen at login!!!.

I really dont know whats wrong with this
old mac g5!.

I've try disassembling, to see if i can see
anything wrong with my mac!.
I dont even have any diagnostic hardware
software cd!.
