I'm trying to install fedora 20 release (netinstall image) to JS22
(type 7998) blade. It has 2 power6 cpus and 8Gb of RAM.
Upon booting from cdrom, I have the following output:
Booting `Install Fedora 20 (64-bit kernel)'
OF stdout device is: /vdevice/vty@30000000

can you please guide me how do I install fedora on this hardware? Thanks!
Thanks for breathing life back into my Power Mac G5. Just wondering if there
was a roadmap or something? I noticed that RPM Fusion stopped supporting PPC64
years back, so I had to compile my own packages. Just wondering if a similar
issue might happen here.
Also, is there any direction on the audio drivers? I have no audio on my g5.
