Powerbook G3 Lombard problems...
I have a few problems running Linux on my new and shiny (and oh, it's
nice) Lombard G3 Powerbook.
First, when I attach a SCSI disk, I keep getting "timed out" messages,
which finally sort of hangs up the entire system. Can I do something to
stop that? I would like to install Linux on an external drive as well
(it runs fine on the internal drive).
Secondly, I did a move from one directory on my HFS partition to
another and I got the middle finger in the shape of a message
"hfs_bdelete" failed. After that, I had to reboot. Is this a bug
(possible cause: a very full directory with 480 items in it) in
general, just on my computer, a random freak event?
Thirdly, I seem to have problems with ethernet. Some connections work
fine, whereas other connections (an ftp to one of the Linux mirror
sites) broke down every other action. Getting the same file from MacOS
caused considerably less problems. Other (local) connections however
work fast and without problems. Is this a commong problem or is it just
a weird interaction somewhere?
Fourthly, I cannot get the second and third mouse button to work. I
copied the kernel command line from loomer.com, which gives a crisp and
clear display image, but the buttons do not work. Clues, anyone?
Thanks for any feedback, and a cudos to everyone who helped develop
