Hello,

i am on Gentoo/Linux/*86 since somme years and i would like to change my computer for the new iMac G5, but a lot of questions stay without answer for me :

- Is the sound is supported ?
- Airport Extreme seems to be ok ?
- 3D on ATI Radeon X600 XT ?

Finally can i have a complete workstation with Gentoo/ppc on te new iMac G5 ? Does someone have any experiences about this new stuff ?

They might work without problems ;-)

(Ethernet probably will run at 10/100 instead of 10/100/1000, perhaps a G5 owner know more than me).
