Re: X1000 success with CruxPPC and MintPPC Linux Distros

Pretty sure he has a FC system, so I'd guess a 4650 card. Seems Debian Mint has h/w acceleration, I don't think its the gfx card, but I'm still a linux noob. :-D

Re: 2nd Hard Drive recommendations

[SNIP] But I'd still advise backing-up all your OS4 drives anyway, before installing Linux. You can never be too careful! What are you using for a backup process? I've never faced a terabyte storage situation before. Since I expect to continue to be too lax about the matter, my past tactic has been...

Re: Would digg this fanless fan on X1000

Speaking of small fans, my A1XE had the small original fan on it for 5 years with no heat problems. It did overheat when I first got it, but it was not the CFM, it was that the fan was too close to the heatsink and the center of the fan did not allow air to be drawn toward the hot center of the hea...

Re: Would digg this fanless fan on X1000

I've given some thought into replacing the existing heatsink & fan for something quieter. Take note, with a memory stick on both sides of the cpu, you only have 3" of space to work for a replacement or a bit less. Cuts down on what can be installed. You don't need to replace the heat-sink;...

Re: A1-XE cpu heatsink+fan

I seem to recall a few ppl installed a Zalman heatsink/fan unit on their A1's.

Re: How to confirm X1000 Update worked

Type idetool -l sb600sata.device in a shell, the drive should be running "current 70 (UDMA 6, 133 MB/s)" after the update.
