I recently got a Mac as a gift, a PowerPC G4 , which has 1GB of RAM but came with no optical drive or hard drive. So I put a dvd burner and a hard drive of 40 GB I got. Then download an iso of Ubuntu 12.04 for PowerPC and burned onto a CD. I'm trying to install from Open Firmware ( as I haven't a Mac keyboard, I use one standard ) .
Finally, the Installation CD boots, but on live mode and after the Ubuntu 12.04 screen I get a message that there is a problem with my graphics adapter but I can continue with minimal graphics and give me the command line .
My question is that how do I install through a text or if there is any way to fix this problem to run the graphical mode and so can continue the installation of Ubuntu, and if once installed Ubuntu the problem will be fixed or what?
I would appreciate if you help me , as I mentioned before, there is almost nothing of Ubuntu but I think it will be easier than trying to get the Mac OS X proper . Spend good.
Adding information: there is not a BIOS screen, I use OpenFirmware (Alt+Windows+f+o) to give the instruction to boot from the CD, then shows a menu with the options live, nosplash, driverupdates, etc. I just press enter and set as default "live" and shows the Ubuntu's loading screen (the dots changing from white to red and back) and then shows the messsage that there is a problem with my adapter, display and input device. I click OK and shows a menu with 4 options: run in low-graphical mode, reconfigure graphics, troubleshoot the error or exit to login prompt. I have chossed all this one with the same results: the screen changes to a kind of terminal with ubuntu@ubuntu~>_
