Yellow Dog Linux 4.0.1 -- Force Text Install?

Hey folks,

I just downloaded and burned the 4.0.1 install CDs, got BootX all setup 
on my Beige G3, but things at the installer level seem to want more 
resolution or refresh than my poor litle 14" Apple monitor has capacity 
for (640x480, 67Hz -- I've passed video= to the kernel, so that part 
understands my video hardware at least) ). Is there any way to FORCE a 
text-mode install all the way through this thing, totally eschewing the 
graphical installer? Is there an argument I can enter at the kernel 
level to pass through? I'm fairly new to all this, but I am eager to 
learn a little something.

Any help or comments mas appreciated,
-Wendell

Never mind guys, I just discovered the "no video driver" checkbox. :)

Installing Linux on a powerpc Mac: powermac powerbook G4 mandrake 9.1 vs. gentoo PPC 1.4 vs. yellow dog 3.0.1 (yellowdog)
Forget Mandrake 9.1 for powerpc: The installer is seriously buggy. It wouldn't read the A key on my G4 powerbook nor did it have support for my video card. It couldn't even read the disk on my powermac G4. There are numerous bugs in the software and problems with partitioning. Since it is what I had first, I tried to install it a score of times before my list of workarounds ended up in a dead end with no video card support on the powerbook. Gentoo is a thing of beauty. Unfortunately, it doesn't understand the most recent firmware on my G4 powermac and yaboot couldn't mount the root partition. My kernel wouldn't read the keyboard on my powerbook. Of course, it is possible that with some slightly different options, that would not have happened, but the answer wasn't obvious at all. With gentoo, everything is pretty much a matter of compiling from source. It is like a simply designed kit for a biplane with beautifully varnished wood and stainless steel cables all provided and all the instructions you need to build the engine. But it wouldn't work on either mac after carefully reading the documentation for every kernel build option. Yellow Dog Linux took Red Hat 9 from the hands of its exhausted developers and made it even nicer. It installed perfectly, first time, on both computers. After my problems with the other distributions of Linux, I was glad I bought Yellow Dog's installation support, and I received some useful pointers from one...

So let me ask you a couple of questions about your second, as YDL2.2 and 2.3 were non-starters on an older PPC of mine. What version of YDL was so successful? Can I confirm your G4 is as recent as mine, 2 months old, Windtunnel? I'd appreciate you help. Thanks Dieter ...

Yellow Dog Linux 4.0 and Power Mac G5
Hi ALL - I have a Power Mac dual processor G5. I installed Yellow Dog Linux 4.0 on it and I have been having issues connecting to ethernet. Somehow G5 cannot make an ethernet connection and cannot get IP address using DHCP. I tried to manually activate the ethernet also (Start->System Settings->Network), but each time, there is a error message saying "Cannot get IP address. Check Cable". But this is not correct, cause when I plug the same ethernet cable to my Laptop then I can surf and get successful network (both outgoing and incoming) communication. I also tried giving it a Static IP address. But that also does not work in sense that I cannot ping to my G5 from my Laptop running on same network. I also did 'lsmod' to check if module (sun gem) got loaded successfully and that was also fine. Have checked other obvious things too but somehow I cannot get my G5 to talk on my network. Any pointers or hints would be really appreciated! Thanks ALL in advance for your time! ...
