hi 8-bit,

that's great, thanks.

what occurs to me as presently useful with yr machine
would be to see if it can run an pc-emulator which could
run an early puppy such as 202 opera which only uses xvesa.
this forum's good-host, john murga, made the still outstanding puplet.

also to see if finnix for x86, with no gui, could be emulated.
also to see if finnix for ppc would boot/run natively on such a processor.
would you be willing/able to try any/all of those things.

i can help in looking for an emulator but at the moment i must go.

cheers mm

hi joan,
thanks for the info.
it's nice to know that the ppc boxes
are not being forgotten by linux but
it would be great if we could put a pup
there, i agree.
cheers, mm

Sorry I'm not a programmer because I'd happily help you out creating a Puppy for PPC Macs! That's why I first tried out MacPup but found out it doesn't do real Macs, but it's a great OS! Hate to see these older but fine MAChines go to as obsolete waste!

All the best to you!
