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:

1. 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 still does not work. BenH is working on it. Sleep-to-disk does work with 2.6 kernels.

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.

2. PowerBook 15"

Airport Extreme

It does not work and probably it will never work. It uses a Broadcom chipset and information has not been disclosed to create an Open Source driver.


As of Nov 2, 2004, a working patch exists for 2.6.9 kernel, see http://lists.debian.org/debian-powerpc/2004/10/msg00438.html.

2D, 3D acceleration


Videoprojection (TV out?)

A working patch for 2.6 kernel exists, see http://lists.debian.org/debian-powerpc/2004/09/msg00102.html.


It works fine.

3. PowerBook 12"
