Is Linux Fedora compatible with the PowerPC?

I have a G4 Mac Tibook with a 60G drive that I want to dual partition 
OSX with Linux. If Fedora is not PowerPC compatible, what are some other 
  builds that are?

Also, is there a site or list somewhere that lists all of the Linux 
builds and the number of software titles available for each or that 
ranks them by popularity or something? I know this is an open-ended 
question and choosing a build is very much a personal decision, but 
would be nice to know what others are installing with similar platforms.

TIA,

Don't install old software. Move to Fedora Core, and I suggest you move
to Fedora Core 3 which will be released on November 8th.

Note that everything you do will be slow if you are saturating 1 Mbps.
Find out what is wrong with that first. Also, try not forwarding DNS
queries to your ISP.

Remember, the software you are using was declared at "End Of Life" more
than six months ago. You are going to find it difficult to get help. Did
you at least make sure to install *all* patches and upgrades available
for your operating system?

I can't seem to work out where the Fedora Extras mailing lists have been
moved to. I was trying to find out what the status of the Firefox builds
for FC2 was. Have they stopped because Firefox will be in FC3? The only
discussion I could find was this bugzilla entry:

https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=2032

the last comment on which was made on 3rd October. That bugzilla report
concerns Firefox 1.0 PR1 which as far as I can tell never made it into
stable because of various problems (extensions and themes not
installing, plugins path, etc.). I'm still on 0.9.3.

As I don't plan to upgrade to FC3 until it's been out for at least a
month or so but am now using Firefox as my default browser for
everything (browsing and development work) I certainly have an interest
in seeing Firefox packages released for FC2. Any suggestions?

Best, Darren

P.S. I know I can download Firefox direct from Mozilla.org but I was
interested in builds for FC that could be managed with yum.

There are builds of Fedora Core for PPC but I don't know how stable they
are. Currently PPC is not an officially supported platform of FC. The
package tree for PPC is here:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/ppc/

I can't seem to find any ISOs you can dowload though.

Yellow Dog Linux (you'll need to google that) is a port of Fedora Core
to PPC. It seems to be well-regarded. I have recently heard very good
reports of Ubuntu (Debian based distribution) on PPC.

Here is a review of Ubuntu on Mac:

http://www.ppcnerds.org/Article207.html

You can download Ubuntu from here:

Hi Rick,

there's a good documentation for OpenBSD online:

http://www.flakshack.com/anti-spam/

It is not too hard to transform this to Fedora, I installed a similar system on Red Hat 9 some months ago.

This tutorial will explain the postfix, spamassassin, clamav (addendum) part.

For courier-imap I followed the documentation on the website, webmail is best done with sqwebmail (fits better with courier than other webmailpackages).

If you have concrete problems by following the tutorial, feel free to ask again, if you prefer do it per private mail.

Hello

I've got Fedora Core 2
kernel 2.6.8

if I run a command date
it gives me the output
Fri Oct 29 22:03:50 GEST 2004

but If I compile and run a simple java program (with jdk1.4.2 or jdk1.5)

public class A
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
       System.out.println(new java.util.Date());
    }
}

it gives me the output
Fri Oct 29 23:03:50 GEST 2004

I'm sure it's a fedora problem, because I did not have that problems on 
Core 1 or previous releases.

What should I do?

Thank you

Thanks Darren. In doing research I saw that Debian (the core 
build) has a version that is PPC compatible. Is there any 
reason why I would not use Debian over Ubuntu?

No. Firefox for FC2 remains an extra package.

... and it's flagged NEEDSWORK, which also means that help is more
than welcome. Reading through the bugzilla comments should give a
picture why the developers are not happy with their package or where
they encountered problems.

Yeah, so I'm curious how they plan to resolve the obvious conflict
between those two statements. The first statement says "necessitated the
removal..." and if that's true, how do you then make available things
that have been removed from their site? Are they planning on starting a
new repository?

However, if you look in their repository, xmms-mp3 is still there, so
the first statement seems to be a lie.

Is it just me, or are the output of both the "date" command and the java

Not "their site", but fedora.us' site. You misunderstand the text.
rpm.livna.org originated in fedora.us and continues to maintain
packages which are not permitted to exist in Fedora Extras or Fedora
Core.

Close, but no cigar ;-)  The hours are different by 1 (22 hundred hours vs. 23 hundred hours).  I would check to see if the daylight savings time settings are the reason.  With a difference of only one hour, it seems like a strange but possible culprit.  Just a thought.

They differ by an hour.  What does the java program source look like?

Quoted in full to keep context.

Calling people liars is not going to make you any friends, especially
when you're operating from ignorance. Notice the text is very clear:

"The merger between Fedora.us and Red Hat" necessitated the removal of
some packages from Fedora.us. Those packages were removed from
Fedora.us. The fact that you saw this news item on a Livna.org page
means nothing... Fedora.us had to remove some packages, and they did.

Fedora.us has no relationship to Livna, which is in another country and
not subject to the same laws. So Livna has no such need to remove those
packages, and didn't. You'll find xmms-mp3 on Livna, where it's legal,
and not on Fedora.us, where it's not.

There are no lies... there is simply your inability to read and keep
your facts straight.
