Powerbook G4 getting very hot. Solution?
this might be a topic that's been discussed here already before: But what
I found on Google on the subject, IIRC, didn't say anything on whether
there is a *solution* for the problem. Or isn't there any?
What I have:
Powerbook3.5 (version = 3.2)
768 MB SDRAM
The problem is the machine is getting very hot at the bottom side of the
metal case when running Linux. It does not get that hot under Mac OS X.
So my simple question: will, or can, this situation change after
installing a fresher kernel? Or other software?
I'm getting nervous because the metal around the ethernet jack has become
darker (not black, but darker), looks like the result of heat there. As
far as I can see: This is the only place where the metal case has become
dark on the outer surface of the case. I didn't have a look at the inside
of the machine in the last few weeks ..
And one message from this forum some time ago, if I recall it correctly,
clearly said that heat can become dangerous for hardware ...
Solution? Or none?
Thanks in anticipation.
