Even though I have a thing for .deb based distros, I am basically a
pragmatist at heart and since YDL works best for me, that is where I
will concentrate my effort on getting things sorted out.
For me, if the fans work right on my PowerMacs, that is all I care about
at this point. How far my standards have fallen... :)
1) I can start a root session, but YDL doesn't recognize the root
password when I try to do a command like:
$ su tail -f /var/log/messages [ENTER]
$ sudo tail -f /var/log/messages [ENTER]
$ root tail -f /var/log/messages [ENTER]
These work for me:
su root -c "tail -f /var/log/messages"
sudo tail -f /var/log/messages
Note that sudo wants your password, not the root password.
I don't have a root command on FC4.

Yes, I have been thinking about that as well, but to tell you the
truth, I would like to get a boxed version shipped.
more importantly, you have someone to call presumably when your fans
don't work :)
