Having troubles with drivers on ppc

Postby DrKebab » 2010-02-04 04:14

Hey guys, I am back. So everything has been working. Login is consistent, battery meter works, programs work. The only problem is:

1. Debian is not recognizing the AirPort card in the PPC iBook G3
2. Debian is not recognizing the video card, I'm stuck at 800x600
3. Debian is not recognizing the sound card. The boot-up sound still works though.

More Info:
Running 5.0 Stable/Lenny
Video Card: ATI Rage Mobility 128 with 2x AGP
WiFi: 802.11b AirPort

1.I think there is a difference between the airport card and the airport extreme card not that I know if it affects your model. Some links.

An etch install. May be out of date.

To get sound on My G4 in Debian

Code: Select all
# modprobe snd-powermac


if that works add

snd-powermac



to your /etc/modules to load this module on startup.
