Yellow Dog Linux 6.0

Terra Soft today released Yellow Dog Linux 6.0 for Apple's G4 and G5 Macs, as well as the Sony Playstation 3 and IBM System p. Built on the CentOS foundation -- a popular derivative of Red Hat Enterprise Linux -- Yellow Dog Linux aims to serve as an enterprise level Linux distribution with a 'just-works' desktop experience for both PS3 and Apple PowerPC systems.

The latest release of Yellow Dog Linux supports 802.11b Airport auto-configuration as well as AirPort Extreme with additional configuration, and offers working audio on all tested machines. The distribution also supports the Sony PS3 Sixaxis game controller and cellular phone internet connections, with configuration.

Yellow Dog Linux 6.0 includes E17 as well as Gnome installed by default, with the KDE desktop environment ready to install. Gnash, Ekiga VoIP, Pigdin IM/RC, and Fluendo codec installer are also supported. The operating system utilizes Linux kernel 2.6.23 with gcc 4.1.1, glibc 2.5, and Eclipse 3.2.2.

    Honestly

    I dont ge the point of this release. All this hard work, so that all 100 people worldwide can spend hours trying to get anything to work right.

    Breathes life...

    I think I'll benefit from this. My G5 is getting slow and pokey, and I'm starting to do more of my development work on a Macbook Pro because of it.

    I think switching to YDL will be the answer to get the most out of this pokey machine.

    Reminder

    For the same reason you'd read about running Windows on a Mac using Parallels.
