In Mandrake I use the snooze command to put my iMac 400 DV to sleep. pmud is started at boot up. I've had some problems with it, but at least it works. On Gentoo I can't get the daemon to start. I have emerged it, using GRP from the Gentoo 1.4 install cd.

Does anyone know what the requirements are for using pmud?

hey, well, considering I am using my iMac 266Mhz as a server, I decided it does not need a monitor. So-- I took it appart, completely. This was quite a process actually, Apple likes to keep their stuff pretty tight inside those iMacs and I couldn't find any good documents, but I got it nonetheless. it took me and a couple other guys who knew electronics well to finish in about 4 hours.. we got it all appart down to the motherborad, cdrom drive, hard drive and power supply. I have the fan sitting on top of it powered by an AC adapter. the motherboard is attached to the powersupply as usual. We couldn't salvage the monitor because we cut a couple wrong wires. So right now all of the above sits in my desk drawer and is running as my gateway, router and firewall (DONT ASK, long story). I've got quite a hack of a setup.

If anyone would like pictures or detailed instructions of how we set this up, lemi know
