Linux For Mac Ppc

Void Linux for PowerPC/Power ISA (unofficial) Void Linux ppc is a staging fork of the Void Linux distribution intended for the PowerPC/Power architecture. It supports 64-bit and 32-bit hardware, with 64-bit supporting both little and big endian modes, while aiming to. Can anyone recommend a good, supported linux live boot CD for a Mac PPC? I found some on the net, but the ones I found seemed old and unsupported. Neo: View Public Profile for Neo: Visit Neo's homepage! Find all posts by Neo # 2 reborg. Administrator Emeritus. From this point on, you should read 'Mac Mini' as 'G4 Mac Mini'. There is no further discussion of the Intel based Mac Minis on this page. Apple's first generation Mac Mini is something which a lot of Linux users have been waiting for: An inexpensive, readily available PowerPC system in a small, quiet and attractive chassis.

While there are several builds of 'linux' or unix that could be run in certain Apple environs (hardware)

the names and conditions are detailed enough to consider further and in-depth study prior to being

fully (experimentally) committed to the installation and attempted use of any specific version.


Ubuntu, Debian, Mint PPC, and others offer possibilities; and may require much more command-line

use to access their features than the graphic user interface of Mac OS X (or earlier OS 9).



Mac OS X – El Capitan is the newest iteration of Mac OS X and comes with a better polished UI for Macs. This look is loved by many people around the world. El Capitan Transformation Pack will provide you with all new MAC OS X El Capitan user experience such as theme; system resources, wallpapers and new OS X features combined altogether. Mac os x el capitan update.

While I've read about these differing systems and how they could be used in Apple architecture

I've not used any of them; but do have a sprinkling of Mac OS from early version 1985 on and

lesser so with 'windows' PC. Not sure, but there are several places to study the topic online and

you may find a good offline book to backup the internet to use with experimental versions.

  1. Long-term support releases

Since 7.04 Ubuntu, PowerPC downloads of Ubuntu are not available on all Ubuntu mirrors. Below you'll find links to the ISOs on the main Ubuntu server, as well as, help on finding mirrors.

Please review the PowerPC FAQ and the PowerPC Known Issues pages before installing. All the information you need for a successful install should be in those pages, so make sure you check them out first before wasting your time and effort on needless internet searches. Please do tell somebody on the Apple forum if you think the instructions are unclear or are missing something, but it would be great if you could make the improvement yourself!

You may also wish to read the general release notes.

This is not an complete list (please add to it). Using the list of official CD mirrors and a bit of ingenuity traversing the mirror directory structures (for example, click on the Parent Directory/ or ./ link) you can probably find more mirrors that contain PowerPC releases. Most PowerPC ISOs are in a ports directory, but for others (e.g. 12.04) you can find them in the releases directory. Daily development builds can be found with other architectures in the daily/ (Alternate CD) or daily-live/ (Desktop CD) directories.
