    Looking for a better Linux distro for my Mac

    I have a Powerbook G4 PPC running Lubuntu 12.04. Newer versions of Lubuntu don't work. Does anyone know of a linux distro that's more up to date that'll work on this laptop? Thanks.

    Have you tried debian?
    Have a look at distrowatch to see what distributions are available for the PPC.

    Updates for Debian PPC ended a long time ago.

    Hi, I'm super late replying to this (haven't logged in in nearly 8 years!) but this stuck out for me.

    You'll find Debian PPC is definitely still alive and officially supported:

    In fact I changed to Debian PPC after mainstream Ubuntu PPC support ended:

    Similarly MintPPC exists, but doesn't look very official:
