"Seems bloated and cubersome"

April 30, 2007  |  By R_Adept

 |  Version: Yellow Dog Linux 5.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Was really looking forward to it for weeks now, finally got it, backed up all my stuff, installed it, tried it, and disliked it. Sorry to say, my negative experience started when I didnt have enough privelages to access my hard drives. Logged in as root and still didnt have enough privelages. As root user I didnt have enough privelages to change privelages, sigh. logging out after fresh install with non root account was full of glitches where the os told me that some programs were not shutting down and had to force log out. Gave it several more chances to impress me, seems very graphically bloated in all the wrong places, after clicking on the question mark for help and nothing happened, reformatted and installed mac os x again. too bad, was really looking forward to it.

"The best version of Yellow Dog Linux yet!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I love YDL 3.0 on my old 3400c PowerBook, but was not the biggest fan of 4.1 and switched to Ubuntu for a while, but once Yellow Dog Linux 4.1 came out I switched back and was happy as a clam. YDL 5.0.1 really seems more modern and a much better release. Linux is different and can be hard, but please be sure to use the forum, the mailing lists, and the online help. There is even a book you can buy from Terra Soft Solution! Give it a full 2 weeks to try it out using the numerous support options available and you too will most likely fall in love with this free OS called Yellow Dog Linux.

Strong rumours say that most PowerPC Apple Macinstosh Computers will not be supported after Mac OS X 10.5, so this is the future for all PPC Mac owners.

"Not for iMac"

April 28, 2007  |  By pokeyjoe

 |  Version: Yellow Dog Linux 5.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I installed YDL 5.0.1 on my G5 iMac (10.4). Yes, it works, but its very cumbersome. Maybe I just need to get used to a different operating system, but NOTHING is straightforward. Even finding and installing software is difficult. I was going to leave it on my machine just to play with it, but its killing me. Not long after coming out of yaboot (allows you to select between OSX, YDL, CD for boot) the cooling fans come on full blast and stay on full blast for as long as I'm in YDL. I couldn't stand it and removed it all.
