just got my dual 1.5 g5 powermac today. Played with os x for an hour and decided to try the 2004.0 cd 1. I really heard the fans go but I did an insmod on therm_pm72. Waited and noticed that the fans went down in noise (only) a liitle bit.

I was wondring if someone can say how the themal mangement for G5 compares to the os x in terms of noise?

Hi,


ask pvdabeel on irc, he has a G5, and when i was working on it, i couldn't hear the fans (we were compiling the kernel etc)...
if he did remove the module then the fans slowly started to make noise...

maybe you need to aut a while untill the fans calm down...


greetings,

After waiting about 10-15 mins the fans were quite quiet (almost the same as in OS X if not the same).
Sorry for the rash post. I'll try to be more patient next time before posting.
