you can rerun kudzu with various options once the machine is running,
look at the man page for more info
5) no sound
once your machine is updated, run system-config-sound, that will find
and activate your sound card fine.

I have no idea wtf the the windfarm is :)
Any ideas, suggestions, advice would be appreciated. Hopefully you or
someone else will have some good ideas. I need every bit of help that I
can get at this point. I am about to tear my hair out and I can't be
positive that 4.1 is going to solve all of this :-( My experience hasn't
4.1 of what ? there is no FC4.1 - its going to be FC5 now.
been very good so far, so best to deal with the problems that I know,
try to get it to work and then deal with a possible upgrade to 4.1 when
I have a better idea of what I can get sorted out now. Here is what my
system looks like:
Machine Name: Power Mac G5
Machine Model: PowerMac9,1
CPU Type: PowerPC G5 (3.0)
Number Of CPUs: 1
CPU Speed: 1.8 GHz
L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 600 MHz
Boot ROM Version: 5.2.2f2
At this time I am running FC4/ FC5(rawhide) and a CentOS4 install on my
G5, they all run great - baring the few hicups I had a few days back

What problem are you having with the fans ? are they running at full
speed ? as root run 'modprobe therm_pm72' does that resolve the situation ?
For some obscure reason, I didnt all the emails from this thread... just
some of the odd sniplets.
