Extremely Slow Booting of Lubuntu PPC Live CD

Asked by jimwg on 2014-06-20

Greetings & Good work!

I'm resurrecting a heirloom G3 900mHZ topped(720megs?)-RAM iBook but a dead HD by using a Lubuntu 14.04/14.10 live cd to use its apps to work with docs stored on USB flash drives. My problem is it takes nearly two hours for Lubuntu to load up. Is this normal? Is there a speed up?

I'm a nontechie senior playing this all by ear so please define any solution in steps, thanks!

Can you not boot USB? Sounds like a faulty CD drive.

Can you help with this problem?
