No nVidia driver option on Powerbook G4 PPC laptop

Asked by Leo Utskot

I'm running Ubuntu 6.06 LTS on a PowerBook G4 1.5GHz Titanium laptop. The EasyUbuntu system is a great help and worked perfectly except for one issue. It did not have the option to install nVidia drivers on my system. (I have a GeForce FX Go5200 video card on the machine)

Are the proprietary drivers not compatible with the PPC machines?
