I was given a Macintosh ibook a while back by my employer. I never really cared for MacOSX
so I was really happy to learn that FC4 was supporting apple hardware now. So I took
the plunge and so far things are going pretty well. I had anaconda keep crashing on me
while I tried to install the FC4 OS on the G3 ibook. I was able to get around this problem
by using the apple "disk utility" app on an install CD to remove all the old MacOSX (Panther)
partitions. After I did that the install worked perfectly and I have a new OS to play with.
So far I haven't been able to get the DVD player to work. Totem keeps giving me an
error message about not knowing what to do with a DVD URL. Has anyone else had that
problem with their PPC installs? It would be cool if I could get the DVD player to work
but even if I can't I'm still not going back to MacOSX.
I can access data CDs on the drive. They mount off of /media/cdrom/. Just can't playback
DVD disks within totem. Any ideas? Perhaps I need another movie player?
