DietPi for old mac (PPC stuff) ??

Post by krr »

Hello

I got some old mac (powerbook G4 mostly) under Lubuntu... and I'd like to have DietPi on them... as even Lubu is a bit slow on these machines (plus, it's a nightmare to configure..)

If I install a DietPI image on it or a PPC Debian (and then I use the script to turn it into a DietPi distri) will it work ? As it's no ARm nor x86 CPU, but PowerPC CPU....

Thanks for your insight...

Hi,

If all essential needed Debian packets are available for Power PC PREP_SYSTEM_FOR_DIETPI.sh should work.
But you have to test it yourself. You will get a basic image.

But I doubt, every additional software title will work or will be available for Power PC. But check it out.
