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?

Yes, the proprietary drivers is not compatible with ANY powerpc.
Only x86 and x86_64 are supported by nVIDIA drivers.
