I have had some grief with software installs and accelerated 3D on Slackintosh 12.1. I converted some .debs recently, so thought I might try Ubuntu PPC 9.04 Jaunty. I have Linux Mint 7 Gloria installed on another PC (based on Jaunty) and it is near perfect. Would love to see Chromium OS built for the PPC :-D Thanks to all for your answers, I may be back to Slackintosh if Ubuntu is too slow to launch or uses too much memory. Cheers, themacmeister.
