Thank you for your effort.
As I am looking for a road forward in view of the fact
that Apple dropped their PPC machines from support
I selected openSuse.
There is a G4 Mini - running openSuse 10.3 and regularly
updated. Not used every day but still very well on this
There is a G5 Dual 1.8 waiting to be useful again, and it
has a 11.1 installation but not good. The desktop keeps
Yeah, I'm not a fan of 11.1. I'm still running 11.0 on my machine.
I've installed 11.2 on my son's but he likes KDE4 and I don't.
As for going to 11.2, all the iso's I downloaded
boot. I'll wait and try the next factory distro as soon
In the meantime I am unclear about the factory process. Is
it just names like that because it is unclear what the
status of the code is? Or some other reason?
Factory is the developement branch. All the Milstones(Betas and
Alphas) and snapshots of Facotry at a specific point. So are the
Release Candidates. The final version is split off from Factory
before the release. Then Factory moves on and becomes the development
platform for the next version. So, while 11.2 has kernel 2.30.x(or
whatever), Factory will move on to 2.31.x whatever.
By the way, I have used YDL but they don't
in their latest announcements I think.
Yellow Dog is POWER/PPC ONLY. Always has been. They are selling
machines made by their parent company that are G5 based.

Unfortunately, the Core2 and Core i7's are considered to be much
faster overall than the G5's. The Real "Power" chips are the Power5 &
Power6 and derivatives.
