Hey guys,

So recently i started using the iBook i got a few weeks ago alot more, and have noticed it is getting quite hot.

The fan at the back is indeed running, but slowly. Is there anything i can do to make it go a little faster at least? Perhaps a program, or modifying a kernel extension?

Any info is appreciated :)

Spec:
Apple iBook G4 12"
1.2GHz PowerPC G4 Processor
1.25GB RAM
Tiger 10.4.11
Newly installed 60GB Hard Disk (Did it today, and checked that i didn't accidentally remove any other cables)

there was a program out there called G4fancontrol (http://www.andreafabrizi.it/?g4fancontrol) and it would tell the sensors to start the fans at a specific temperature. That might do the trick.

Just bought a copy and it seems to work great, thanks! :)
