Ok, here's the 7th version of the sleep patch for ATI based albooks &
iBook G4. Other machine users, please test too as it may cause
regressions (or improvements) as well.
The cache flush problem happens to not be completely fixed yet :( There is
something going on that I don't completely explain yet, might be related to
an errata of some CPU revisions. This version of the patch adds a load/flush
loop before the L2 HW flush on the 745x that appear to make the thing stable
on the machines I've tested on. It's a good enough workaround for now, I'm
working with freescale to find out what's really going on though.
I've decided to give it a try with Fedora on my TiBook G4, but have some
problems with installation (probably quite stupid ones)
I'm trying to install it with the 4 isos provided, but after the installer
is finished with the 1st cd and requests the second one, i'm not able to
eject the cd, cause the eject button doesn't work yet...
Has anyone a solution for that?
I've also a pc, maybe i can put the contents of the 4 cds there and
install it via network somehow.
Maybe someone could give me a hint.

Hi all. I'm new to mac but not so new to Linux. I bought an ibook g3
600 12" and wanna install fc3 on it. When i saw the announcement that
test iso'z where out, i've decided to try.
Well, I've download the isoz files and the boot.iso and burned it.
When i boot from the boot.iso, i type linux and anaconda starts. I
selected Local CDROM but(don't laugh, :-) ) i can't eject the boot.iso
from there. When I try F12, anaconda tries to "go next" and don't
eject the cdrom. Will I have to install it using NFS or its possible
to make it from my cd's?
Thanks for the attention,
P.S.: Sorry about my english, :-)
I may have an opportunity to try fc3 on a 12" PowerBook G4. I just
want to know if YDL 4 is more stable and what are the differences
between ydl and fc-ppc? Should I be afraid of braking something up
it possible to install Fedora3 on a RS6000 43p-150? It's a chrp model.

After several installations I still get this error every time
"fsck.ext3 Unable to resolve `LABEL=/1`.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue)
And after giving root password I Can´t change anything because I'm in
read only mode. Any ideas?
The Fedora Project is proud to announce a TESTING tree for Fedora Core 3
on the PowerPC platforms
It is available at:
For most part, the isos/ directory contains all 8 ISOs, the first four
which are the binaries, the remainder which are SRPMS. If you want a
complete binary install, the first 4 ISOs are all you require.
The os/ directory contains a full tree of Fedora Core 3 for the PPC
platform. As a bonus, we created a repository, so that you can have a
yum repository to point to after installation. The repository is:
Updates are also available, at a yum-ified repository:
Some notes about the release: the release is known to not boot on G5's,
and we are working on re-building another tree, which we can push out
soon. Sleep support for the G4 iBook's and Powerbooks isn't implemented
upstream yet, but there are testing kernels available in RPM form
To install the release, you need boot.iso from the os/images/ directory
(use mac/pseries appropriately) as well as at least CD1 (disc 1 is not
blessed). When booting the boot.iso CD, hold down the 'C' key, and use
the "linux askmethod" option. Other methods of installation are located
We have a mailing list for further discussion at:
And if you IRC, come join us on irc.freenode.net, at #fedora-ppc. As
always, if there are bugs, file them at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/
under the 'powerpc' platform. We have a tracker bug:
Lastly, this release would not have been possible without the tireless
contributions from Paul Nasrat, David Woodhouse, and Seth Vidal (who
hosts the site!) and the numerous testers who hung out at #fedora-ppc

I have an old 7428-100 1st generation 43P. Which is believe is PREP and not
CHRP. After downloading the first CD iso image and loop mounting it it
appears that there is only a boot image for CHRP machines, is PREP supported,
planned or otherwise?
