Updating ubuntu using cd rom
But, I do some analyses and concluded that the main reason for no detecting HDDs is missing of pata_cmd64x or cmd64x modules in kernel build.
Ubuntu 9.04 uses cmd64x (kernel 2.6.28 ) Fedora 12 PPC uses pata_cmd64x (kernel 2.6.31 as in Koala) Today I will manually add this module and will see what happened.
You need to burn a new disc, or do a whole bunch of stuff to get it to update. The 9.10 live cd did not work because it did not automatically log in for some reason, and refused every login info I gave it.

What makes that worse is that we are using Fedora 8.0 in my class, which is over 2 years outdated. Still, if possible, I would like to get Ubuntu running. Ubuntu is my favorite disto by far, so I really hope(d) to get it running. It's the net install disc, and I ended up getting an error about an invalid key on the first package for the base system. I have one of this old machines at my workbench :) B&W G3 PPC Mac and I have same problems (login [solved via link in previous post] and no IDE recognizing.
I tried the live CD first of course, and now the alternate.It turns out that was a bad image file, so I downloaded a new one during the night, and burned it this morning. I will find the solution for this issue and implement that to this install scripts.Despite telling imgburn to do it at 1x, it did it at 12x, but it works. (Ubuntu's 9.04 yaboot works well)I found issue with yaboot under Koala.But, the main issue will persist, how include this missing driver after installation to hard drive?I will try with rebuilding initrd image with mkinitramfs command, and exchange it with original one in /boot.
Currently I have problems with bootstraping because something wrong with yaboot under Koala.
