When it comes to Linux, I’ve mainly used Red Hat on Intel hardware, and on PPC many attempts were made to install LinuxPPC, and that never worked (well, it was 4 years ago) but I have used Yellow Dog successfully…

As much as I have tried to install Debian on PPC, I’ve never managed to get X11 to work, which is ok for a server, but I want a workstation. So, which distro should I try? penguinppc.org lists some distros, as does LinuxISO.org. I’m tempted to try Mandrake or Gentoo. I would try SuSE if I could find their PPC distro., but the fact I have to hunt around for it makes it last on my list.

If you’ve got any helpful advice on Linux for PPC, please let me know
