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

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

PowerBook 15"


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.

One button mouse

On iBook G4, editing 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 12"
