I've got the Powerbook 17" G4 1.5 Ghz model. I think apple only one with that
monitor size and processor speed. I got the Video upgrade to 128 and upgraded
the hard drive to 5400 rpm.
Crappy. Is there a way to run audio apps safely on a PPC processor using Linux?
There must be a way to do this, right? I'm hoping to avoid going old school
like I did 4 years ago when I compiled the patches into my redhat 8 kernel on
i386. I think it's easier with Gentoo to do that kind of work, but I need to
find a good resource for this. Suggestions?
Anyway, what would you suggest I do to get stable audio on a PPC?
