Testing 10.10

8:56 am ubuntu

While considering various options, upgraded on G5 from 10.04 to 10.10. The upgrade was smooth – except that new kernel turns CPU fans on (oh, what a sound!) and then after couple of minutes the system halts (the hardware considers itself overheated). Beta quality multiplied by “informally” supported Power architecture… Still, thanks to Canonical for fixing the annoying issue with lvms (I encountered while upgrading to 10.04).

    There is also an issue with glib/gsettings on powerpc which needs to be fixed. I have a G5 here, so will see if I can reproduce your fans issue…
