Last I looked into it (~7 years ago) Yellow Dog Linux was pretty much the best only option. It looks like it's still being updated, so might be worth a look.

I thought I saw something re. Debian recently but I may be mistaken.

Not used it personally, but I do know someone that used to run a Minecraft server on an old iMac using the PPC port of Debian (headless)

Lubuntu

Plus most major OSes have PPC support, just use a light DE.

Hey guys, I recently flashed the bios of one of my PCs and a Backtrack installation I had on it now refuses to boot.
It stops when reaching the splash screen, just after loading the usb drivers. Do you think it is linked with my new bios ? I've tried a few live CDs and they all boot up fine.
post #2236 of 4043
@15130 - With just that little bit of info only a few conclusions are possible.

1) The Flash succeeded or nothing would boot

2) However if you didn't copy your previous settings, it is mildly possible that one would stop the boot process with the most likely candidate being boot order if you have more than one drive.

3) External drives, even thumb drives, connected before booting can have an impact on dev assignment and halt a boot, depending largely on your /etc/fstab syntax (example: /dev/foo -vs- LABEL -vs- UUID)

At this point you and anyone helping needs more info. Did you try a maintenance mode boot? What were the results? Did you try a rescue boot device? with it's own kernel or loading your Backtrack installed kernel? Results? Have you used any of your LiveCDs to read system messages in Backtrack's /var/log to see exactly where it stops, or can you turn off the splash screen so you see all the messages as you boot? Are there any other changes besides the BIOS flash that directly precede the boot problem?

What are your favorite terminals? I'm thinking of moving away from xterm to something more modern.

As long as I have anti-aliased fonts, the terminal emulator I choose doesn't make a whole lot of difference.

If you're after some killer terminal features then maybe now's the time to read up on tmux (if you're not already using it) and build up some handy configs / shell profiles.
post #2239 of 4043
I actually don't care for anti-aliased fonts in the terminal myself. Personally I like good ol' Terminus or a similar style font for terminal work.

As for terminal emulator... I'm just way to addicted to Rxvt-Unicode patched with 256-color support and paired with tmux, it just doesn't get any better for my tastes.

I use Konsole personally. It does everything I need, most importantly having sane keyboard shortcuts to scroll the scroll buffer, having sane copy+paste, and having an infinite scroll buffer space. All its other features are just icing on the cake. It's been enough to keep me from learning tmux (I still use screen when necessary to keep an eye on running processes).
