View Full Version : [ubuntu] PPC New install: No drivers for fan and airport

December 18th, 2011, 05:41 PM
I am a Linux newby and don't know terminal commands
have an Imac G5 -single core 1.8 G, 64-bit processor. Had issues with 11.10 so I installed Merekat 10.10 for PPC-64 bit. After restart I noticed 3 FATAL Errors:

FATAL: Error inserting therm_pm72 (/lib/modules/2.6.35-powerpc64-smp/kernel/drivers/macintosh/therm_pm72.ko): No such device
FATAL: Error inserting windfarm_pm112 (/lib/modules/2.6.35-31-powerpc64-smp/kernel/drivers/macintosh/windfarm_pm112.ko): No such device
FATAL: Error inserting windfarm_pm91 (/lib modules/2.6.35-31-powerpc64-smp/kernel/drivers/macintosh/windfarm_pm91.ko): No such device

The system booted ok, but I noticed there was no driver for my classic airport-g wifi network card, and the fan is running wildly continuously (annoying).

I tried to open "Additional Drivers" app but got an error message and no application.
Does anyone know where to find the device drivers and what I need to do to install them? If I can fix these issues, I will continue on the Linux Path to Enlightenment, otherwise it is back to OSX 10.4.11.
