So I decided to take my old PPC MAC mini and get Ubuntu for it, its working well, I was just looking for freebies and some general sites as I am a complete Ubuntu noob.

What can I do etc...

I am using Ubuntu 10.4 for PPCs.

Cheers.:D

GAH! ran into problems already, the old PPC has no flash support! I cant use youtube *cries*

I don't think chrome works on non intel machines.... :)

Do they still have the vertical lines if you copy them to the internal drive first?

scrapped the ppc version and got it running on a desktop now, but I am still having trouble with video and music, it plays for 1 sec and then closes the media player, tried several media players and they are all doing the same thing... HELP!

Right, sorted that, but now it wont shut the PC down, it just freezes and I have to press the power button, and also, when it starts back up the wallpaper has reverted back to the default...
