With Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) possibly causing PowerPC support to drop significantly, I’m getting ready to transition into Linux. But I can’t complete the transition until Adobe “finally” gives PPC Linux support for Flash 9 and/or 10. And It’s barely done when I can’t use a WAN.
I’m using a 17" PowerBook G4 with a 1.67 GHz PPC 7447A (G4) processor, and is running Mac OS X 10.3.9 (Do not convince me to upgrade any higher!) and openSUSE 11.0 with KDE 4.04.
To reduce confusion, this PowerBook is of the second-to-last series of PowerBook G4, which were produced in January 2005.
Anyways, here’s my problem:
I’m using the AirPort Extreme card that came with this computer. I want to be able to get this thing hooked up to the web without wires, while still using SUSE. But, I’m very new to SUSE (I just had it installed last night) I had once made this possible during the time I used Kubuntu 7.04/7.10. I want to put my AirPort Extreme card to good use on Linux. I’d hate to make it useless.
Does anyone in here have an idea on how to install drivers for the AirPort Extreme card and/or help me set up this PowerBook to use a WAN on SUSE?
I would very gladly appreciate some cooperation.
