G the battle." The Colonel turned to a young officer standing a little
distance away-- "Lieutenant Osarov, is it true that you recognised in
this man, when he was brought in here last night, a person whom you saw
in an English square during the progress of the battle?" "Yes, Colonel,
I did!" was the decided reply. "I recognise him now quite clearly. He
was riding a black horse, and dashed off when we broke into the square."
Heideck perceived that it would be useless to deny the fact, in the face
of this direct evidence, and his military honour would, in any case, not
have permitted him to do so. "What the lieutenant has said is quite
correct," he answered, anticipating the Colonel's question; "but I did
not take part in the fighting. As a friend of Colonel Baird, who was
killed, I kept as long as possible close to him, so as to be able to
bring his relations, who were left behind in Lahore, tidings of his fate
and of the issue of the battle." "You, a foreigner, were armed in the
English square. Since you confess this much, we need not trouble
ourselves with further proceedings. You, gentlemen, will all agree that
we should treat him, according to martial law, as a traitor?" The last
words were addressed to the other judges, and, with a silent bow,
I have a late 2003 iBook G4. It's one of the ones that had the
display fault which Apple wouldn't admit to.
The upshot of this is: the internal LCD does not work. Being an
iBook, it also doesn't have a serial port. However it does have wired
network, an external display and several USB ports.
Currently it is running Mac OS X, using the external display.
Here's a puzzle for you: how do I get Fedora PPC on this machine?
There is no visible way to get to the OpenFirmware boot prompt. (I
mean, I can get to it, but I have to type blind, and I don't see any
It does seem to boot into the Fedora PPC CD disk 1, judging by the
noises it makes. Of course it's not very much use because it won't
use the external display, so I can't see anything.
I have not been able to get it to netboot. It sends packets to my
dnsmasq-based PXE server, and dnsmasq sends packets back, but nothing
further happens. (This dnsmasq configuration can boot PC guests
Is there something I can type blind at the CD prompt? (And what?)
Is there another boot method?
USB serial ports? (I don't have one, but I could get one if you think
they would work).
A way to boot from within OS X?
Can I get OpenFirmware to use the external display? The answer to
this one is, I suspect, 'yes', but I cannot find the right voodoo for
the nvram output-device parameter to make it work in reality. Display
card is ATY,RV280M9+ and dmesg suggests the internal and external
displays are called ATY,Via_A and ATY,Via_B respectively.
Any other ideas?
I've spent several days on this, but I'm getting nowhere fast :-(

Hello fedora-ppc list,
I am looking for some help, pointers on remapping my caps-lock key.
Without any problems I was able to remapped the caps-lock key on my
Powerbook g4 titanium 400mhz in f10 using the gnome keyboard panel but
have not been able to do the same by any means in f11.
I think I have narrowed the cause down to the incorrect keycodes being
sent by the keyboard.
It looks like it is possible the keyboard is an adb keyboard that is
sending incorrect codes and requires a kernel patch to mangle the codes
into recognizable caps-lock codes.
I was wondering if anyone can give me some direction in finding if this
was applied to the kernel in f10 or if another fix was used to allow
remapping of the caps-lock key in f10.
Any help on this much appreciated.
