[ydl-gen] Discontinuation of YDL.net Service

Dear YDL.net user:

Since the creation of YDL.net service nearly a decade ago, many new and much improved email, calendar, and blog services have been made available which are able to eclipse Fixstars offerings in terms of both reliability, ease of use, and number of features. As such Fixstars has decided to discontinue the YDL.net email, blog, and calendar features as it has become no longer feasible to host these services. We understand that this is a inconvenience to many of you and we will attempt to delay the discontinuation of service until March 2014 although server failure may occur, resulting in the loss of user data.

A comprehensive guide to importing your old YDL.net emails to a new IMAP4 email provider such as Gmail can be found here:


Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.


Jan 31,2014:
Following services are terminated.
- Webmail

Jan 31,2014 - Feb 2,2014:
Server maintenance

Feb 3,2014:

Mar 31,2014(or until server failure occurs):
The mail service is terminated.


We continue following services:
- yum repository via http
- YDL repository via ftp
- Access to log of community site
- Access to log of Mailing list
- mirror YDL repository to public download sites 


Sincerely,
The Yellow Dog Linux Team

is there a way of accessing the repositorys for downloads after 
installing ydl on a pismo?

[ydl-gen] Historical Project

Hi,
  I have a need to prove that some 20'th century software can run with
only 20'th century software on 20'th century Apple hardware.  (It's
complicated and has to do with a court case.)

  The package I need to demonstrate was supported on Linux, but not
MacOS 9.

  I believe that if I can install YellowDog 1.2 or Champion Server 1.2
or (possibly) ppcLinux 2000, the rest of the project will be trivial.

  I've found the repository at 
http://ftp.caliu.cat/pub1/distribucions/yellowdog/releases/champion-1.2

  This site has the contents of what I believe was the install ISO, but
no bootable iso image (though the instructions suggest that there was
such an image).

  I'm working with a gray clamshell iBook (model 2453), with a 6 G
drive and USB (no firewire) and New World Rom.

  My success to date has been extracting yaboot from the rpm file,
and copying that, install/vmlinux and install/ramdisk.image.gz onto
a small HFS partition on the hard drive.

  The yaboot.conf resembles:
image = vmlinux
     label = install
     append = "ramdisk_size=64000 load_ramdisk=1"
     initrd = hd:10,hdramdisk.image.gz

  I can boot to the OpenFirmware monitor, and start yaboot with:
boot hd:10,\yaboot

  Following that with:

boot> install

  This gets as far as
booting...

  And hangs.

  I tried copying the vmlinux and ramdisk-text.image.gz from the
YellowDog 2.0 distribution, and these tools will boot, but I can't
install from the 1.2 CDROM (the installation scripts are looking for
Pomona.)

  Would someone have a clue?  Or better yet, an old copy of the
Champion install ISO?

  For background, I'm not a strong Mac guy, but I've been hacking Unix
since the mid 80s. and Linux since the mid-1990s.

  Thanks,
  Clif

[ydl-gen] Noisy fan on Power G5 and YDL 6.2

Hi,


I just installed YDL on my Power G5 1.8 GHz and the fan is out of control. It produces so much noise that after couple of minutes I have to shut down the computer.

Is there any fix for this issue? I noticed on older posts in the forums users have experienced similar issues in the past. From their replies it doesn't look like there is an official fix for this issue yet.

Here is the info about my Mac

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo 
processor : 0
cpu : PPC970FX, altivec supported

$ uname -a

thanks,
