A PowerPC edition of Ubuntu MATE 14.04 is ready for testing thanks to Adam Smith from the Ubuntu MATE community!

Adam has uploaded the .iso image to OneDrive and it is available from the link below.

Adam says:

Those familiar with PowerPC will know that yaboot is the default bootloader, and that remains so here, but I’ve also added grub to make booting directly from an iso file easier. There is no need to burn a DVD!

You can use the following hashes to confirm the integrity of the ubuntu-mate-14.04.1-dev.34508-desktop-powerpc.iso download.

  • md5sum 2bb57b2bbf87b668a94c38dd0393b263
  • sha1sum 9fe995a2832e2c0bcce5604b08095fb7217882ac
  • sha256sum b53d2836c00a2f9180353e908f09ee9eb4b17138dcc72bf692c6bd68b2756032

You can find Adam’s announcement on Ubuntu MATE Google+ community. So, if you have any questions or feedback I suggest you contact Adam here.

Thanks very much to Adam for taking this on and well done on bringing Ubuntu MATE to another platform!
