After a lot of nagging, I received the first Mac of a friend, his Powerbook G3 PDQ since it was sitting in storage not doing anything usefull. From what I can tell it's this model : http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powerbook_g3/specs/powerbook_g3_233_pdq.html However when I plug in the YoYo charger (battery plugged/removed) , it boots for 2 seconds,fans start to spin and then it stops ? My friend did tell me that the CMOS battery was gone, could this be the reason why it won't start or should I look at a different charger ? Apart from that since I'm not accustomed to a G3 or Tiger , what are my options ? Tiger install via XpostFacto (do I need to have MacOS 9 installed to do this ?) Macports (but from what I remember from SMTube there were not a lot of ports) Tigerbrew ? TenfourKit ? Tenfourfox ? or is there another Webkit/Roccat browser Ubuntu ? I checked OpenBSD but it doesn't seem to run on this G3 (OldWorldRom) Video playback ? VLC , Mplayer ? 360p/720p ? Is it worthwhile to purchase a second battery ?
