I have an iMac G5 that I'm looking to install Ubuntu, Kubuntu, etc, and release of Ubuntu on to. Whenever I try to install any version (I've only tried 12.04 and above), I install the OS without errors, but when I restart after installation, I get an error that told me to go to wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b34#devicefirmware. Again, this works with every Ubuntu release I've tried on this specific computer.
I have, although, successfully installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a Mac mini G4, which works entirely fine, which is confusing, because I had no need to install firmware on that, yet I have to install seemingly new firmware on a computer that is older.
This iMac runs on a PPC processor, so it's probably no longer supported.
By the way, I'm completely and totally new to Ubuntu, and I probably have no idea what I'm doing. I needed to switch to something other than OS X because neither of my 2 semi-old macs seem to co-operate with OS X very well. My Mac mini is fine, but this iMac G5 will not stop giving me issues.
I'd really appericate any help that anyone out there might have.
Thanks in advance.
