Will Linux Mint work on a Mac G4?

Have an opportunity to buy a used Mac G4 with I guess the older PowerPC chip. Will LM 4 or 5 work on this machine? Thanks.

I have not seen any powerPC version of linux mint. dont think mint will run on powerPC.
(unless you go for virtual machine that emulates intel / amd processor)
