I tried your suggestion but get:

directory. Please ensure that your install tree has been correctly
generated. Failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from anaconda: [Errno: 256].

I've just downloaded a copy of Bordeaux, burnt the 5 disks and attempted to
upgrade my FC4 MacMini to it, reaching the disappointing message:
> The package gnome-mime-data-2.4.2-1.2.1.ppc.rpm cannot be opened. This is due

I've checked the sha1sums and did the media check before install. I tried
the install a couple of times, getting these errors on different files e.g.
bluetooth-libs-0.7.0-2.ppc.rpm, crypt* and others.
I then tried a network install, in case the drive had problems. I attempted
an FTP-based install but with similar results.
what could be wrong? what can I do?
1,000 TIA - e
I just wanted to say that despite there being a few outstanding issues,
like with sound for G5 machines, I have been very impressed both with
the support provided, the quick and friendly responses (even to more or
less newbies like myself) for the PPC platform from the package
maintainers through bugzilla, as well package selection for the PPC
platform, that has made me a big fan of Fedora Core 5 and makes Fedora
Core 5 my favorite distro, despite my having earlier only been
interested in .deb based distros.
Kudos to the FC PPC team!
I have purchased a stock (white) Apple USB keyboard with Danish language
layout that I would like to replace the stock (white) Apple USB keyboard
(US) keyboard that I m using now, to make it easier for me to access the
extra Danish letters in FC 5.
How do I switch the layout so that I get the Danish layout correctly
from the moment I boot in the command line, as well as in GNOME? I tried
this about 2 years ago with FC 3 on a PC and I could never get the
keyboard layout correctly from the moment I booted in the command line.
This is important if (for example) you have a problem with the GUI
freezing and have to run FC 5 from runlevel 3 to solve the problem.
What is a stock (white) Apple USB keyboard that comes with a G5 listed
as (dk, dk-latin1, etc.)?
I have have two recent G5s, one Quad 2.5GHz G5 PowerPCs and one Dual
2.7GHz G5 PowerPCs. I installed FC5 on them recently and I'm trying to
get at least one of them running dual head.
The Quad has an NVIDIA GeForce 6600. Although there was an issue with
some unreadable text during the graphical install, things are fine post
installation with an increased color depth. From what I read, one head
is as good as it will get. That is, the nv driver will not support dual
head and there is no way to use something like fbdev to run two heads on
one nv card. If someone could confirm this, I would appreciate it.
The Dual has an ATI Radeon 9600T. Under FC4, I'm pretty sure we had the
"radeon" driver working, but regrettably I didn't save the xorg.conf
file. Graphic install would not work and after fighting with all day, we
have it running with the fbdev drivier. Basically we ended up running
the YDL 4.1 install disk and looking at the xorg configuration file they
used to get the graphical installer running.
However, I am assuming that I can't run dual head with fbdev, so now I'm
stuck. If I try to run with the "radeon" driver, the machine hangs. not
just no video, which I've had before with inproper monitor settings, but
complete death as it stops responding to ping and I can't ssh login or
ctrl-alt-del the machine. This seems to be a problem with the "radeon"
driver in xorg 7.0.0, as discussed here:
Anyone out there have dual head working with a PowerMac G5 Desktop and
FC5? I have some older machines I could try if anyone has it working on
a slightly different box.
