VL on Mac
« on: March 07, 2009, 03:47:06 pm »

Does VL run well on Mac hardware? Does it not make any difference whether you use Mac or normal hardware?

We do not have a version of VL for PowerPC processors (Macs older than 1 year old). If you have a newish Mac with an Intel processor it "might" work.

I am writing this from a MacPro running VectorLinux.
VL runs great on all the Mac hardware I own.

How old is the oldest Mac machine you have that runs VL?

Like lagagnon said there is not a VL version for PPC processors.
If your Mac has an Intel processor you can run VL, if not you can install slackintosh and vectorize it with some VL-noarch pkgs.
My oldest mac is about 6 years old (ppc) and my Mac pro is about 18 months old (Intel)
