i use a 2004.3 livecd for ppc.

nano comes up but doesnt display the specified file. it hangs all together.

i try to install on a g4-powerbook for which i recently got a new keyboard but this might be completly unrelated.

any suggestions how to fix this?

thx

I had the same problem with nano and 2004.3, "lynx" crashed my computer without fail too. Using "vim" instead of "nano" fixed the problem a bit. Bar that boot up os x, mount the linux partition and edit the lazy way.

yes well vim... i currently use emacs so i dont really want to learn vim too. (i will eventually when i got some time..)

i found another solution though: i just log in through ssh and do everything from another machine (has a bigger screen anyways.) works fine.

i just dont understand why. any suggestion why this is working?
