    After doing a bit of research, it turns out you can point the repository to the DVD which should fix the problem:

    Do you have any idea if the online yum repositories will be open to the public after the main release date? I tried to install a bunch of files myself but the dependencies ended up being too much.

    Also, would pointing the yum.conf file to "http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/yellowdog/yum/4.0/base/" fix anything temporarily? I have no idea if the older versions were used on PPC or not. I think I'm going to wait up for the change anyways, but it might help some people if it ends up working. I know a lot of old 4.0 installations work on 5.0.

    Yes, from what I read the 5.0 repositories should be public any day now.

    RE: 4.0 packages: I am wondering this myself. I would think most should work, but you would have to force install them. (yum --help)

    I could write up the step by step, but I am not sure if it will work. I can see my apple mightymouse BT when I search, but it wont connect. Ill try getting a less secure BT mouse and then I can write it up. Basically all you should need to do it edit the conf files like the post above says, then use add/remove programs to install the bluez package, then reboot.

    useful commands (sudo or su to execute as root):
    hcitool scan
    hidd --connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
