Hi All,

The developers of Ubuntu Server have stopped the building of daily build ISOs for PowerPC but I was able to upgrade ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC today.

Link: Ubuntu Server 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) Daily Build

I will upgrade my installed development version of ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC as long as possible. I will try to release the version 0.2 of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

The developers want to remove the last PowerPC daily builds. I uploaded the last Ubuntu Server 17.04 PowerPC daily build ISO to my web space today.

Download: Ubuntu_Server_17.04_2017-02-22-powerpc.iso

I uploaded the last ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC daily build ISO and the last Lubuntu 17.04 PowerPC daily build ISO to my web space two weeks ago.

Downloads:

ubuntu_MATE_17.04_2017-02-09-powerpc.iso
Lubuntu_17.04_2017-02-08-powerpc.iso

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Musa,

Yes, it is possible.

Instructions:
  1. Mount the image: sudo mount MATE_PowerPC_Remix_2017_0.2.img /mnt
  2. Create a new partition and mount it to /media.
  3. Copy with rsync the files from the image to the new empty partition: sudo rsync --stats --progress --numeric-ids -axAhHSP /mnt /media
Please try it.

Thanks,
Christian
