Ubuntu / Apple :: 11.04 On IMac - Bluetooth Did Not Work

Jun 23, 2011

I have a 2.4 Ghz iMac from 2007 with Core II Duo processor and ATi 2600 HD graphics card. I had OSX (SL) and Windows 7 installed earlier. To avoid pressing ALT key to get OSX started, I installed rEFIT which gave me the idea to triple boot system with LINUX. So I repartitioned the system and installed Unity (Ubuntu 11.04) on it. The installation was smooth but somehow bluetooth did not work. I am using the proprietary ATi/AMD driver from Hardware Extra in Unity and the system works great (even 3D cube works fine). I though of upgrading Kernel to but the system gives an error while loading the files.

The error is primarily with flgrx driver. Keeps giving [Fail] result. When I had replaced the proprietary driver with ATi open source driver, I could upgrade the kernel to 3.0. The bluetooth gat "ENABLED" but would not connect to Magic Mouse. Now I have reinstalled the system with Kernel and keeping it simple as the earlier efforts required 6-7 reinstallations of Unity. Please offer solutions if bluetooth can be enabled with present Kernel or how to safely upgrade the kernel without loading the Open souce ATi driver. I have already tried "sudo service bluetooth restart" and it work but I have to do it every time I reboot the system, hence not desired.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Booting 10.04 On Imac With Osx 10.6

Aug 20, 2010

I just installed the latest version of Ubuntu on my intel-based iMac with OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard), but I don't know how to bring it up.

I partinioned my hard drive for it. I inserted the CD and pressed C when restarting my computer for it to come up, then I installed it on the partition. It was done installing and said the computer must restart now, so I pressed OK. I got a black screen with a bunch of white text saying something about an error. It was pretty much "frozen" (I didn't know how to get off the screen), so I turned off the power manually by pressing the power button. I turned the power back on, but I get no option for Linux. I tried putting the CD back in, and it boots from the CD but it's still the non-installed version. So I thought maybe it didn't install, so I pressed install again. It said to choose where to install it, but my partition of free space said Ubuntu was already installed on it.

I'm really confused and don't know how to get it to start up when I turn on my computer.

EDIT: Here's some more info about my mac incase you need it:

OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard
4 Gb of RAM
250 Gb hard drive (29 Gb partitioned for Linux)

Ubuntu / Apple :: IMac G3 - Won't Install

Oct 25, 2010

I remembered about my old iMac G3 and currently had OSX 10.2.8 installed on it but its too old to support flash so no ..... or anything (why I stopped using it) I do remember gnash working on it along time ago when I had Ubuntu 4.10 installed, gnash is just really glitchy but that was quite a long time ago I used it so I'm only assuming they have made some updates as Ubuntu progressed.

I tried have now tried 4.10, 6.04, 6.10, 7.10, 8.04, 8.10, and 10.10 all for ppc using the alternate installer cause the desktop installer just makes the iMac restart when I tried it with 8.04 I think it was so I just stuck with the alternate installer method and EVERY one of those versions of Ubuntu fails to install the base system..

I don't know what it is or why this is happening because that is the same disc I used before with 4.10 and it now cant find a file, I tried re downloading 4.10 and burnt it again on my dads laptop (Toshiba Satellite with Ubuntu 10.10) at 8x on a CD (the iMac has a CD ROM only). I can't figure out what to do, I just downloaded the Desktop installer for 10.04 and the alternate installer for 10.04 as well and I'm going to burn both of those and see what happens.

Every install I tried to do I did a full whip to the hard drive so its a fresh install of ubuntu only. I thought maybe something was wrong with the hard drive now so I tried 10.2.4 again and it installed fine and wanted me to update to 10.2.8 again so I turned it off and tried 10.10 again and nothing is working. It's going on a week soon I've been messing with this old computer trying to get it working and everything is failing on me

Apple :: Can't Get Ubuntu 10.10 On My G4 IMac PPC / Sort It?

Oct 26, 2010

I decided as ubuntu 10.10 was so good on my old laptop i would install it on my old G4 iMac 17" LCD.

However, All I ever get is a black screen.

i tried the alternate install and it all seemed fine until it reboots and.... Black screen!

I burned the ubuntu 10.10 desktop ppc cdrom nice and slow, checked MD5 sums and verified disk etc...

I put it in the cd tray booted up, and let it start the lice cd... For a split second I saw the ubuntu loadscreen before it disappeared in a hiss of static and went to a.... Black screen.

I've tried alt-command F2, but don�t get a console

i am at a loss as to what to do next. I partitioned the whole HDD for ubuntu during the alternate istall. So until i can get Ubuntu up and running, I have a very heavy paperweight.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Installation - 7.04 On IMac G3 (os 9.2.2)?

Mar 22, 2011

my partner and I have been trying to wipe the mac os 9.2.2 (UK version) and replace with ubuntu 7.04 (previous forums have mentioned this is the most stable version of ubuntu for the G3).

We bought this iMac G3 the other day, cheap, for our sons room... homework, research, music etc. He's used to the windows system that the Mac os looks both boring and confusing to him. so we thought we'd go in between and use the ubuntu os.

Any who! downloaded the iso for ubuntu 7.04, burned the iso image, alternate cd install of course. the only problem we are having is getting the disc to boot at start up on the iMac. (cd rom doesn't have a tray, I've seen this question asked before). the cd burned fine, the disc works on other systems. but when it comes to boot up on the iMac, nothing happens. press and hold down c, cd drive turns the discs a few times then carries on with the original mac os 9 start up.

Ubuntu / Apple :: IMac G3 Will Not Boot From Live CD?

Feb 21, 2010

I can't install any flavour of Ubuntu 9.10 onto my new iMac G3. Here are its specs:

iMac G3 New World (Indigo)
350MHz G3 Processor
6GB Hard Drive
Slot Loader (CD only - not DVD)
Mac OS 10.3 Panther

The drive does work - I've played music from CDs on it, and it does allow me to view PDF files stored on data CDs. I can even view the Ubuntu CD through the Finder on the desktop. It just really doesn't want to boot from the CD.

I've tried multiple Linux distributions (all of them PPC compatible).

Ubuntu / Apple :: Optimize And Sell IMac G3

Jul 6, 2010

I am finally coming around to selling my iMac G3s and eMac. I will reformat the drives in them and put on Puppy Linux for the iMacs and Xubuntu on the eMac. If I can, I will repair OS X on them all and will dual boot if possible. All of this will be done using the Intel iMac via Firewire. I would like to know if there is a way to make these machines any faster (without money) and "safer" so the next owner feels sure they won't be failing on them soon.

Ubuntu / Apple :: IMac G4 Will Not Boot From Live CD?

Aug 15, 2010

I presently have an iMac G4/700Mhz machine I want to try Ubuntu on, but I cannot get it to boot using the 10.04 PPC Live CD. I get to the boot prompt, and no matter what I type, the system halts when the screen clears and comes up, and each time it does so, it comes up different colors (I've seen green, red, yellow, and grey so far). I've tried the special boot arguments that apply to this system when you press the TAB key, and all of them end the same way, so I'm at a wee bit of a loss here.

Ubuntu / Apple :: IMac G4 Setup/Configuration?

Aug 31, 2010

Here's the next problem I'm running into. I successfully installed Ubuntu using the Alternate disc. It's set up as the only OS, I let the installer configure the internal drive, etc. I don't need OS X on this machine anyways. I'm back to the graphics issue again.The system turns on, fires up YaBoot, starts up the Ubuntu install, but then hangs as soon as it goes to do something with the display adapter, producing a random blank screen in a particular color, and just stops there. I looked to see if there were boot options at the YaBoot prompt, but all it gave me were "Linux" and "Old".

Ubuntu / Apple :: Boot 10.4 Live CD On New IMac?

Sep 18, 2010

I'm trying to boot ubuntu10.4 live CD on my new iMac (iMac 11,2, core i3). The screen goes black at start of boot and stays black. The CD stops reading after a few minutes and that's that. Just to see what else doesn't work I tried ubuntu10.10 beta live DVD. That boots the splash screen - already better than 10.4 - and gives the language menu and the boot option. The boot starts and some text scrolls up the screen quickly. Then the screen goes black, etc. Tried to set boot option vga=771 - no good. Boot option nomodeset - no good. Booting suse11.3 live CD also gives scrolling text and a black screen. All these discs worked on my old Mac Mini Solo (2006). Looks like something's different about booting a live CD on the new iMacs. Anyone else trying this?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Boot Camp On IMac?

Feb 20, 2011

A while back, I used boot camp to dual boot OSX and Ubuntu on my iMac. It was fine, worked well - but I eventually took the partition off because there was some software corruption in OSX. I reinstalled OS X and now I want to dual boot Ubuntu. I can't! I created the partition - like last time, in Boot Camp, and I installed Ubuntu - I made sure to keep Grub on the Ubuntu partition only. But when I go to reboot (you know, after it finishes installing) I press option/alt and the Ubuntu partition does not show, only the Mac partition. Why is this?

ed: One thing that I remember is that I formatted the Ubuntu partition ext4 - I don't recall whether or not I used ext3 before, and do not know if that makes a difference.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Putting JUST Xubuntu On IMac G3's

Mar 17, 2011

I have eight iMac G3's that work. I've never had a mac before, and I'm not interested in anything the mac OS has to offer. I want to totally delete it, and put JUST xubuntu on these computers. I know nothing about Mac, except I got these, and they have pretty colored housings. I've tried using the 'c' and 'apple+c' commands to get this to boot from the xubuntu cd, but it doesn't have any effect. The thing just continues to load OS9.

I'm seeing from all these threads that everyone is pretty much dual booting, or multi-partitioning the hdd. I do NOT want to do this. Is it possible to format the drive completely, so that it is utterly blank, and then install xubuntu? Am I going to have to get new hdd's for them? They all work just fine, no problems except the software is so old that you can't do anything with it but use post it notes.

Ubuntu / Apple :: 11.10 Live CD On IMac G5 Freezes?

Jun 2, 2011

I have a 20" 2.0 GHz iMac G5 Rev B and I'm trying to boot the live CD on it. I used to have a small ubuntu partition before on this computer, but I repartitioned it to OS X only when I left it as a family computer. I had no problems with it back then (I think it was 10.04). I've tried booting with several options. Booting by typing in live or live-powerpc64 get the computer to a blue screen with the top bar and cursor, before the cursor stops moving, the computer freezes, and the fans kick up to full. Trying with video=ofonly gets the new left bar thingy to show but freezes as soon as I try to click anything.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Turn Old IMac 350 Mhz Into JukeBox

Jun 24, 2011

I have this lovely iMac sitting in my cellar and I want to revive it. It's objectively beautiful and it has enough horsepower to become my jukebox. Its integrated audio is crystal clear and it has no fans: perfect. I have just one serious problem: I'd like to use it without mouse and keyboard. So what I'd need is a cool app to handle mp3s (with album art and the more cool stuff I can get) AND to be controlled from an Android phone. There's a lot of applications (songbird, xbmc, banshee, rythmbox, others) that have remote controller app on android market but I think they will not run on ppc in their latest versions. Any compiling from source succesfull experience / hints on my little project?
