Subject: Using a projector with linuxppc
Date: Thu, 6 Oct 2005 12:30:43 -0700
Theres a little plug on most recent iBooks and powerbooks that has the
label of a monitor : |O| except the O is a rectangle ...I wanted to use
my PPC linux laptop to give a presentation...and typically, if one were
using a powerbook with OSX you can simply plug the projector into that
port and it automagically works upon boot. I was just wondering if
anyone knew if this held true for an ibook on linux as well...im
running it on a iBook4 G3...with the latest vanilla sources. its the
white one and the first to have 2 usb 1.1 ports. I imagine it should,
seems hard-wired...but I just wanted to be sure before I went to put on
the show...<br>
<br>
Also, is a wireless airport card the only card available? Does anyone
know any non-usb alternatives that are supported in linux and also
physically fit in an iBook? <br>
<br>
And if anyone who has contributed to the Gentoo Linux project happens
to read this...I wanted to extend a big thank you for putting together
the best damned linux distro, or any os for that matter, out there for
people to enjoy...you're do an exceptional job.<br>
<br>
Thanks.<br>
<br>
Best,<br>
