Re: ppc and amd64+mac testers needed



I saw your youtube link a couple days ago on the Debian PPC board and watched your G5 Quad videos. Very nice!

I downloaded and ran the PPC Live ISO via usb flash stick earlier today. After an abnormally long time it finally loaded to the desktop and everything looked fine.

However, when I launched Firefox, it locked up the computer. No mouse or keyboard response. I couldn't get to a console. I had to force quit by holding down the power button on the computer for 5 seconds.

On my second attempt, immediately after the desktop appeared, I tried to use the power off icon at the bottom right corner of the desktop to shut down the computer. This resulted in a white screen and again a locked up computer. I again had to force quit by holding in the power button on the computer for 5 seconds.

On my third attempt, when I launched the disk utility. it appeared and seemed ok, but then I couldn't close it. This time I was able to get to a console and shutdown the computer. I will try again in a little while and attempt to file a bug.

This was on a Powermac G4 MDD, 1 Ghz single processor computer.

Best regards,
