It is written on their web page :

And YellowDog linux is very very far to be up-to-date .... especially
compared to SuSE or Ubuntu !

they use kernel 2.6.10

* ... with /new/ support for:*
# Thermal (fan) for G5s Power Macs.
# Sleep for most ATI-based portables.
# iMac G5 (sans on-board audio, modem, thermal).
# Mac mini (sans on-board audio, modem).
# Updated ALSA sound driver for all non-G5 hardware.
# Griffin iMic USB audio device support.
