I finally got around to putting linux on my new iBook this week, and
last night I thought I'd try loading FC3. Put the boot CD in, selected
linux, the kernel started to load, and then the screen cleared as if it
was changing to the framebuffer, but the box was dead. Screen backlight
was on, not responding to keys (including the on/off button). Left it
on battery in the hope it would run down and then I'd be able to eject
the CD when I booted, but after about 15 minutes I realised the
backlight was off and it responded to the on/off button.
From looking at /proc/cpuinfo (I put ubuntu on earlier) it's using a
7447A clocked variously at 533 or 1066MHz, pvr 8003 0101, machine
Apologies if this is a known problem, but I couldn't see any links to
point me to the correct bugzilla.
