G4 mini / Cinema dispaly & YDL 5.01

Well tonight I got a chance to test out 5.01.

SADLY I have to report one can not even get too far into install when you are presented with a BLACK display.

As is the case with the last few versions of Ubuntu / Kubuntu presenting owners of G4 mini & Cinema display a BLACK screen.

Yellow Dog 4.1 was a gem to install. So much so I felt a 5 year old could do.

I welcome some feed back to what may need to be done for a successfull install.

Cheers Scott :oops:

Have you tried doing a text based install?

Well the install disk doesnt even get far enough running to do that.

The last screen I can see is the one with the small YDL logo on the left side. This is just loading basic linux for booting.
