I have an old powerbook g4 running stable ppc only (so I don't have access to mac os X on it).

1) Is there anyway of setting OF to allow wake on lan? Mac OS X had an option like "allow waking for administrative purposes" or something like that. The point is that a priori there should be a way of setting this from Linux or from Open Firmware at least.

2) did anyone succeed in waking a ppc running linux from lan? even if they had to do:

dual boot and set from Mac os X to "allow waking...."
boot from linux and set to S3 or shutdown.
try to wake from a different machine running linux.

I'd really love to know if anyone has heard of this, googling a little couldn't find any success story.

Cheers,
