10.2 on Beige G3 - black screen
Authored by: dmackler on May 10, '03 07:11:23PM

Yes, exactly the same set of problems with installang 10.2 on my rev. A beige G3 (w/ Newer G4/466).

I got around it by putting the drive in my G4 tower, installing, and swapping the drives back.

I did several things at once, so I cannot say which cured the problems, however: ran DIMM First Aid, and replaced the bad memory chip (Jaguar uses memory much more heavily than 10.1), moved the hard drive to an ACARD IDE PCI card (mostly for performance), and updated to 10.2.1/10.2.2. Somewhere around there, he began to behave properly. Before that, I never knew when he would have the "silent" kernel panic.

I also got the Black Screen of Death during the installation process on my Beige G3 - I gave up because I couldn't be bothered unplugging everything and pulling cards out.

Today, I did pull all my extras out, including ram. Jaguar installed perfectly well. Then I put all my cards and memory back and it still seems to be running perfectly well.

Time will tell I guess

Just an interesting thing I noted.... Jaguar is still up and running after 48hrs continuous - clicking on "About This Mac" shows me that I have 10.2.6 running with 384MB of RAM, which is correct - however, when I run the Apple System Profiler by clicking on the "More Info" button - all the details of the installed Ram modules and total memory isn't there - just nothing..... no big deal I guess - it's still running after all and love the fact that all my Macs are now using Rendezvous to talk to each other :-)
