  Need help! Linux on Powerbook 
 Date Written 
That Guy Jul 17, 2008, 12:38am EDT Report Abuse
I have a Apple Powerbook. It's either 300 or 333 MHZ G3 processor. I would like to install Linux on it, but can't seem to find a version of linux that will work on it. Does anyone here know of any? Thanks.

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

You need to find a Linux distribution that supports IBM PowerPC (type of CPUs in old Apple Macintosh computers) architecture not Intel x86. Many do have PowerPC versions including Ubuntu, but it sounds like yours is quite outdated so you need to find something low in system resources and PowerPC native.
