Don't know if this is useful, but it took me a while to figure it out. Thanks to user k1l from IRC channel. In order to force your machine (ubuntu, powerpc, yaboot) to boot to shell mode and not gui:

1. Enter in terminal:

sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target

2. Reboot

Voila !

If you need to reverse this:

1. Enter in terminal:

sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target

2. Reboot.

Thanks k1l !!

It seems it is necessary to do an apt-get dist-upgrade for an update from 16.04.1 (version from the Live DVD) to 16.04.5.

Hi All,

There is a small bug in the installer script. The configuration of the permissions for the 'tmp' folder is missing after creating it. You have to configure the 'tmp' folder permissions manually with the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo chmod 1777 /mnt/tmp/


ls -ld tmp

Code: Select all
drwxrwxrwt 9 root root 4096 Feb 14 14:07 tmp


Cheers,
Christian
