erm.... got to say this is a bit daft. You are going to walk into 1 infinate loop and ask nicely for a beta operating system that was never meant to leave Apples possession - not even as a developer copy like Rhapsody?

dream on ;-)

however, I have a couple of 'Coppermine' PCs that would like Tiger, even if it means removing a load of Apps like iTunes and Safari that need SSE2. What we need is a list of Apps and parts of the OS that need SSE2, then we can write emulators, write around or replace as neccesary.

just my 2p

after scouring limewire, i found 2 things that caught my eye:

"cheetah_intel.toast"
"marklarpanther.iso"

cheetah_intel.toast is taking way too long to download. the speed is about 500bps and the file is 637 mb. it also keeps disconnecting from the host so dont get excited"

marklarpanther.iso wont download, its "looking for sources".

i doubt they are real, but you never know. if you want to try and find it on limewire, just put in "marklar" or "panther" and it should come up. but i had to wait like 1 minutes before i saw them because limewire slowly connects to each peer.

Cheetah is, from what i remember, 10.0 and Panther is 10.3.

Now off to google to look for those files.

I just think its easier to work with what we do have rather than what we could have. We know that Apple developer machines used Pentium 4s for Tiger, but what about Jaguar or anything earlier??

I wouldn't expect anything less than P4.

apple have compiled an x86 build for every release of OS X since beta. even since rhapsody nextstep they have had x86 builds. i would guess that they used a range of computers from pentium IIs to P4's.

I think McSkywalkers right in this case, the P4 was released around the same time as Cheetah...

The darwin kernel for cheetah does not require sse2.

i think they brought in the p4's when they were developing 10.4.1 and onwards.

I put Darwin 6.0 (jaguar) on a P3 the other day no problem (in fact it was the only thing that would bleeding well install - so much for it being picky about hardware! but thats another story). My understanding is that its the Mac bits that need SSE2

you're right embio, it may just be the core system that can run on sse. but still... SSE2 was introduced in 2001 and Jaguar was released in 2002.

Well I dont think the whole GUI would require SSE2, it runs on G3s and they go back to the Pentium era so it cant be overly heavy on anything too advanced. If its just the SSE3 apps as well iTunes, Rossetta, etc. that I couldnt run I would still want some form of the Mac OS running on a PC.

cant exactly afford a new one, hence the sig.

hence the extra 3 pc's i don't have and the MACBOOK :(
yeah i'm sure it's possible to get OS X running at some state on a pc without sse2. we'll just have to figure out how :P
