mac OS X on a scratch built machine???
I'm a bit of a Mac OS addict, but annoyed at the less han impressive speeds of most Mac systems, even the newer OS X ones.
Since Mac OS X is unix-based, would there be any way f running it on a scratch built machine? What unix style software components would I have to install to get it to work? Would I need any special hardware or can I just use normal PC parts?
I'm pretty up to scratch on OS X and PC building, but I've not done anything with Unix or Linux before.....
Welcome to LQ :)
What does "republic" have to do with anything in your post?? :confused:
Oh, and since I can't tell, are you FOR or AGAINST mac? Do you think it is FAST or SLOW ;) I really can't figure out what some of your terms mean, I hope that doesn't sound offensive, it's not meant to be ;)
As far as running linux on PPC, there are a few options:
Yellow Dog Linux
I believe Gentoo? has a port for PPC as well. All can be found at:
www.distrowatch.com OR from google.com/linux for the distro's homepages.
running os x on a scratch built machine
Sorry, new to this forum, and i typed the wrong thing in the wrong place so i'm stuck wth 'republic' instead of the title I wanted...
Anyway, I am FOR the Mac OS X operating system, but against buying Apple machines, which are too pricey considering how slowly they tend to run compared to up to date PCs.
I'd therefore like to know if I can run OS X on a standard machine, or a machine with UNIX installed, or something. Would I have to use specific harware or will standard PC bits do? What software would I need?
I'm not familiar with a lot of thetechincal terms but I hope that get across the idea...:confused:
Sure does, but I haven't a clue! :) I'll do what I can to get your post to the eyes that should see it though.
Re: running os x on a scratch built machine
Evidently you can install MacOS's Darwin core and then get a GUI through XFree86's XDarwin port.
Normal Mac OSX apps won't run, even if you do this on a PowerPC based machine, everything is going to need aqua.
Here's a link to Darwin if you're curious:
