Hello, 2011/11/11 Jesse St.John <jesselorenstjohn@xxxxxxxxx>: > hi group, im interested in finding anyone with experience installing > slackintosh on a g3 blue and white. any info would be great. I do have a B&W G3 running Slackintosh 12.1. Did you already try to install it or are you asking if there are problems installing it? Because there are some problems, mainly with Yaboot, but with a few workarounds things work here. Things are really problematic if you don't have any HFS or Ext2/Ext3 partition on your hard drive, because Yaboot can't boot the kernel from the CD-Rom on a G3 B&W. And you can't netboot with the (old) version of Yaboot which comes with Slackintosh 12.1 because the initrd is too big. So, as far as I know, you need to make an HFS partition with Mac OS or a ext2 partition with something like OpenBSD/macppc installer (which boots fine from the CD-Rom, maybe because the kernel is way smaller). If you do have an HFS or Ext2/Ext3 partition, then things will be easier. So, just tell me what you have and I'll try to tell you what to do. BTW, don't try to run Slackintosh -current on a G3 B&W. There are some options missing in the kernel so it won't work well. I do have a 126.96.36.199 kernel which works fine here on a G3 B&W with the version of udev provided in Slackintosh 12.1 (later kernels don't cope well with an old udev). When you're done with installing Slackintosh 12.1, I could send you this kernel if you want it. You'll also need a patched version of xf86-video-r128 if you want to run Xorg, otherwise it will just crash (I guess there was a bug in this version of Xorg, using a more recent version of xf86-video-r128 with a patch from OpenBSD made it work for me). I also have some packages (openjdk, postgresql, dosbox, gprolog, ocaml, mupdf, valgrind...) that you might want. Cheers, Donovan.
