Hi !

I'm not at all a PPC user, but I'm teaching my brother (who IS !) the very beginning of Linux, with the 1.4 livecd of gentoo (which is the first LiveCD I found for PPC).

I'm helping him by phone, wich is not easy at all :cry:

He can't run X : as root we tried :
- x
- X
- startx
- setup (which is the command to run, following the "welcome message")
- Setup

=> "no command found"

Does anybody knows how to run KDE or Gnome, to show him the powerfull of Linux ?

Thank you very much

Regards,

gUI

PS : I downloaded the two CDs for the G3, which are, I think now, install CDs, not real LiveCD :cry:

i don't know much about the PPC stuff, but there aren't any "LIVE" cds like you're looking for for this release of gentoo... at least not that I know of.

I think he's going to have to be brave and try partitioning his system and break down and install gentoo to really see the beauties of the Linux GUI
