This page describes the status of the Debian Port for PowerPC. Older models work without any problem.The new model have some issues to be solved

iBook G4

There are some howtos to install Debian on it:

We need to merge them in this wiki, with updated info ;-)

Sleep-to-RAM just works with all kernel >= 2.6.13 out of the box (I think is was 2.6.13...just use the latest, It'll work)

Sleep-to-disk does work with 2.6 kernels.

Second head out

There is a patch for OpenFirmware which enables the second head of the Radeon iBooks. Read the info here

One button mouse

On iBook G4, editing mouse.sh with

echo 0x61 > /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/mouse_button2_keycode echo 0x64 > /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/mouse_button3_keycode echo 1 > /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation

makes the Fn-CTRL and Fn-ALT combinations behave as a middle and right button.

PowerBook 15"

Airport Extreme

It works, using the bcm43xx (reverse engineered) driver. Use at least 2.6.17 kernel.

Sleep-to-RAM

As of Nov 2, 2004, a working patch exists for 2.6.9 kernel.

2D, 3D acceleration

The video cards are suspected to be manufactured by ?[Nvidia] (unconfirmed, but this hase been seen on Apple Power PC Desktop computers). The Nvidia series of cards do not currently support open source 3D acceleration, however 2D functionality is provided and a proprietary 3D driver is available for Nvidia series cards.

?[Nvidia3D]

Videoprojection (TV out?)

A working patch for 2.6 kernel exists. Julien Blache writes that this patch works only on Rage 128 chipsets (see output of lspci). (However, I have Mobility Radeon 9600 M10 and it works.)

Bluetooth

It works fine.

keyboard backlight

You have to add i2c-dev support and ic-keywest. The download and compile lmud http://waterwave.ch/weblog/stuff/lmud-0.01.tar.gz Read http://waterwave.ch/weblog/stuff/lmud-0.01.tar.gz
