Re: ppc and amd64+mac testers needed

thanks! if you didn't check out the link above and grab your image
from the iso qa testing tracker and log your results there, it doesn't
mean a lot to the goal we're trying to achieve (have official ppc
images for 14.10).
if you look there are 3 testcases for the alternate image and 4
testcases for the desktop image. all of the testcases need to be
followed exactly and the results listed.
so please try again.

run `free -m` in a terminal while doing this and see if you end up
running out of memory. considering the notion that you probably have
very little memory and running the live environment puts the whole
system in your memory, you probably have very little to work with.

you might try running `top` in a terminal while doing this and
investigate what exactly is causing which resource (cpu, memory, etc)
to get all used up.

were you able to kill it in the terminal?
