I was wondering if there was an Arch Linux installation guide for absolute beginners for PowerPC. I've been using the one on the website, and I receive errors such as "the Linux kernel package could not be installed". I think I'm not following the instructions correctly.
ppc on arch is not well supported (much less so than on Ubuntu).
If want to run a modern Linux on ppc, your best options are either Debian or Ubuntu. The best solution IMHO is the Debian kernel (so suspend works) and Ubuntu user land, just installing Ubuntu (which is simple from the CD/DVD image) will get you 98% there with little difficulty.
