    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 and it would tell the sensors to start the fans at a specific temperature. That might do the trick.
