I've been tinkering with a friends of mine PowerMAC G5 to install Lubuntu on it and give it a second life, I've had a few issues with it, I had to use the alternate iso to be able to install it and then edit the yaboot.conf file to make it boot (I've followed these instructions -> https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/solved-wont-boot-after-fresh-install-flashing-questionmark-g5-powermac/5782).

But now that the computer is booting, it gets to a black screen after displaying some boot verbose, I'm kinda stuck with that and I could not find much useful information on that matter, do you guys happen to know how to solve this?

(I did not expect that installing Ubuntu on a powerpc device would be so tedious ^^)

Thanks to those who'll answer :p
