  • 1. Ethernet Cables
    I just bought a TrippLite 75-foot ethernet cable to add my daughter's PC to my two-Mac/two-printer network (Linksys router/hub). The cable doesn't work on the PC or my G4 but it does work with the antiquated Performa 6116 and the LaserWriter. Anyone here know why this is so? (I posted the problem on comp.sys.mac.comm but there's hardly anyone there these days.)
  • 2. White Spots On Powerbook Display Fixed
    So, I had the "white spots on display" problem on my TiBook. A couple of weeks ago, I took it to the Apple store (one of the new stainless steel ones :->), and they sent it in to be fixed. I dropped it off on Tuesday night and had it back on Friday afternoon. Seems they replaced the screen and the bezel (not the whole top; I have a little BSD Daemon sticker on my glowing Apple, and it's still there.) It's much stiffer than the old one, which might prevent the problem from happening again. So, it's a bummer about the design flaw, but the warranty process went smoothly. Duke
  • 3. Help Viewer question
    OS 10.3.5 My Help Viewer keeps unexpectedly quitting, usually after I've clicked on a link for some information. When it doesn't quit it works very slowly. Is anyone here having this problem? If so do you have a solution for me? Thanks, David
  • 4. iSync Panther 10.3.5 and SE K 700i
    Hello, I have a little problem using iSync with my SE K700i. It runs accurately, but does not sync postal addresses at all. Is that a bug, rather in the cellphone or in iSync?! Phone numbers and email adresses do well. Thanks, Sven

PowerBook Fan Sys 10.4

Since installing 10.4 (& updating to 10.4.1) I've noticed that my fan
runs almost continuously on my PowerBook G4 15".  Is the new system
taxing the processor that much more or is the software that turns the
fan on & off set at a lower temperature.  X Resource Graph
( http://www.**--****.com/ ) shows it running at about 140.

I do not have a PB, but an iBook[summer 2001 G3, dual USB], and it runs 
much hotter after both the 10.4.0 and 10.4.1 transitions.

Is it running hot no matter whether you're actually using the machine or 
not? If you run top in the terminal or Activity Monitor in 
/Applications/Utilities do you see anything you don't expect using up 
cycles?

I've seen mention of a couple of specific apps that seem to go wild 
under 10.4. Can't remember the list but I suspect both MacFixit and 
Macintouch will have them posted.

I was having this problem, and Activity Monitor showed that the Finder
was taking most of the time.  I quit the Finder, removed the
com.apple.finder.plist preference file, and restarted the Finder.  So
far, the problem has not recurred.

machine or
up


Finder


I checked Activity Monitor and a Virex process (VShield...) was running
using 95% of the processor.  I had to remove Virex (using the disk
image uninstall).  This is a known bug (according to AppleCare) and
will be fixed with a yet to be released new version of Virex.

Ah. Yeah, Virex is very definitely not supported on 10.4. I hadn't heard 
that there was a positive indication that a new version was on the way.

1.Need help with sys 10.4 install

My other computer is a G4 with sys 9. It has 2 hard drives. I
installed Sys 10.4 on the 2nd hard drive (wanting to keep sys 9 on the
original). Now I have to boot up holding the option key, and I can't
get sys 10 to work at all. How do I install sys 10 properly, and how
do I get this all to work?

The reason for this is having some older software that doesn't work in
classic. Thanks, anyone, for any help.
