I recently aquired a G4/700/1M upgrade for my 9600/300. This upgrade has a 256k on-chip
L2 cache and a 1MB off chip L3 cache that runs at 200Mhz. When I start up the openSuSE
v10.0 installer, it shows the L2 cache, but it doesn't mention the L3. I have also
ran into this on my Beige G3 when I installed a G4/400/1M. This chip is from a Yike PCI G4
machine. When I start Linux, the L2 cache of 1M is not shown. BootX comes with a tool
called GrabG3CacheSetting, but this tool doesn't work with the G4s. I have seen some
hacks about editing out the BootX settings manually, but I'm really not sure what to
do. Any help would be appriciated.
I'm sure that the G4/700 will be very fast even without the L3 cache active, but the
G4/400 won't be......
