I updated my powerbook to rawhide a few days ago, just after the rpm-4.4
update. Nothing broken on it that isn't broken on i386, afaict. It's
just the installer autopartitioning and yaboot stuff which needs
attention for PPC, I think.

I'm using a lot of FC3/ppc machines for real work, and there's basically
not a lot wrong with FC3 other than the installer, either.

We don't get battstat_applet support in gnome-applets unless we
provide /usr/lib/libapm.a. Yes, that sucks.

Waiting for someone to second it.
