GNU-Darwin: Apple x86 test machine

Posted 23 Oct 2005 at 00:23 UTC by proclus Share This

No word yet on whether GNU-Darwin will have access to an Apple x86 test machine, and the Distro does not yet have the resources to acquire one. (At this time we are saving for printheads. ;-)

When the new machines arrive on the market, it is expected that our x86 collection will continue to work normally with the x86 version of Mac OS. In other words, we are apparently ready with our OS and thousands of ports and packages for Apple-x86. If anyone is able to demonstrate this on an Apple test machine, please be sure and let me know, so that we can announce that we are Apple-x86 ready. We have been preparing for this event for years. Thanks.
