    Control fan speed from cli in Tiger? (iBook G4)

    I installed Tiger via the 4-disk CD installer, then upgraded to 10.4.11. I also just upgraded to Leopard by putting the iBook into target disk mode and installing from my PowerMac G4. Performance seems better but I still do not hear any fans.
  2. Hi y'all, My iBook G4 has overheating issues in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. The fans work in openfirmware, but it seems that as soon as Mac OS X boots all fan activity stops and the iBook soon overheats and will freeze. Is there any way to control fan speed in Tiger. Either via terminal or a gui app? Thank you!

    iMac G5 for my laptop.

    Well, once my work term resumes in the end of June I am buying a base model Mac Pro, but I really love the look of the G5 iMacs.

    iMac G5 for my laptop.

    Hello all! I am trading my Gateway P-6829h for a iMac G5 1.8GHz with 2Gb of ram and a 150GB hard drive. I know my laptop is better in specs then the iMac, but 1) I *really* miss leopard, and 2) I love the iMac G5 style. Specs of my laptop here: 17" gateway P-6829h 2.0GHz core 2 duo 3GB ram and 250GB HD
  7. Very nice The 12" were always my favorite powerbook models, the 17" comes to a close second.

    Yeah, I am familliar with BeBits ( Although, haikuware is news to me). "Back in the day" I used to use BeOS as my daily operating system (Sadly not on a BeBox *tear* ). Haiku is good, although it is not a replacement for actual BeOS, maybe I am just biased. I did a wipe of the system today and put Slackware on it.

    So, I ended up installing Haiku Alpha 1 on it, works good, but its only temporary ( I will not use wondows for the life of me)

    1GHz eMac today!

    Today I drove about 75 kilometers to pick up a eMac listed on Kijiji for $160CAD. Its pretty sweet. Although it only had OS X 10.2 installed with 128MB ram, I put in a 256MB stick I had laying around, and slapped 10.4 on it, and now it works great. Its very responsive. I'm thinking on using this as my main system, at least until my Gateway laptop bites the dust and I can get a Macbook Pro.
  15. Yep! Thats right. I am typing this on my Powerbook 1400cs 117 with a 40( Yes, 40!)GB hard drive and 32 mb of ram surfing the internet on a Orinoco Silver. I am only going to use this as my computer for a month to see how things go. I am going to check email, browse the web, write my novel, and chat on IRC. I am running Mac OS 9.1 and I really like it
