to install the intel versions of newer onto PPC chips?
It is the last "normal" boxed-version. For my one I've recompiled SuSE
8.2 on PPC with a lot of updates (kernel 2.4.23 with alsa 1.0rc2, gcc
3.3.1, kde 3.1.4, OOo 1.1, IBM J2SDK 1.4.1, ... all security updates
and so on) and packages not included in the IA32 version (for example
I've asked SuSE for month for allowance to make it public. I've got a
lot of good response from developers and some help, when I had
problems. But there's no response from SuSE's (or Novell's) lawyers.
I don't wan't to say it's a complete distribution. I don't have
handbooks or special installation routines, but it's a pool of > 3000
RPMs and I think it would be a good base to do the missing things. And
it's running stable on my old PowerBook G3.
