lkclyyeah you can... apt takes a downgrade option, but it's designed to do "per package", i've never heard of anyone doing like a full downgrade :)01:39
sadoon_albader[mDual booting debian and mac os 10.5 on the G4 with one SSD is a major pain01:40
sadoon_albader[mI think I might just backup the old partition and debootstrap install of reinstalling heh01:40
sadoon_albader[mTo keep the bootloader and partition table intact01:40
lkcldoes it boot from external usb?01:44
sadoon_albader[mno chance in hell, not even firewire. too finicky01:45
lkclis ReFIT available for ppc64?01:45
sadoon_albader[musb is doable I've heard, but I tried and it doesn't work with me01:45
sadoon_albader[mOnly nice thing is macs have a target disk mode01:46
sadoon_albader[mSo I can use it as an external hard drive and go from there01:46
sadoon_albader[mchrooting from my G501:46
sadoon_albader[mActually that's how I did my last install01:47
lkclweird, but nice :)01:48
sadoon_albader[mYeah I'd take anything over having to wipe mac os and waiting 1.5 hours for the debian netinstall to finish01:50
