  1. Great news everyone

    Well I tested that on my iMac G3 350mhz i removed all references to g3 in osinstall.dist. and it installed. But now my iMac g3 has died but I think it needs a new battery. I have ran Leopard on my new iMac and it runs great btw 17" iMac 2.0ghz Intel Core 2.
  2. Frontrow 2.0

    unless apple releases the source for some of thier leopard apps like iChat 4 then we might see a tiger binary but right now i wouldn't count on it.

    Here is what I did to get Leopard running on iMac G3 1). Get the Leopard WWDC Preview 2). Create Leopard WWD image (cdrom master) in disk utility 3). Mount the image - go into system - installation - packages - osinstall.mpkg (show contents) - contents and replace OSinst.dist with the one below 4). G3 OSinstall.dist 5). Close the mounted dvd image and copy it to another computer for safe keeping (Burning it? skip to Number 14) 6). Boot your panther/tiger install cd 7). Open Disk Utility in Mac OS X Installer create a 2 partition setup with partition 1 being any size and partition 2 being 10gb 8). Install Panther/Tiger onto partition 1 9). If tiger is installed update it to 10.4.2 9a). Go get Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) 10). Transfer the dvd image to your newly installed panther/tiger 11). Use CCC to copy the dvd image to partition 2 (10gb) (make sure CCC is set to create bootable drive in preferences) 12). Set start up disk to partition 2 (10gb) 13). Reboots into the leopard installer 14). Install Leopard 15). When it reboots make sure you hold down shift after the mac sound 16). Do the registration (might crash at the end) 17). Login and reboot again 18). Reboot into Single user mode (apple/cmd S) 19). Mount the drive (/sbin/mount -wu /) 20). Do a kextcache -e 21). Reboot and you should be booted right into Leopard WWDC Preview. Some apps do not work, safari and ichat both crash for me. Get info may or may not work. Depends on your g3 mac I think.

    I can confirm, I have gotten leopard running on my iMac g3 350mhz, first boot after install wasnt working right just showed gray apple screen and that music was playing. I restarted and went into safe mode, booted to login, logged in and poof there was the desktop, I figured it might be the kexts. So i booted into single user mode, mounted the drive typed kextcache -e and then rebooted. Leopard started up fine with no real problems and then I went to click on ichat 4 and it crashed. right now installing xcode 3 so I will know more for u all in a bit. If you are interested in this, AIM me at anthonyleblanc@mac.com there is a file you must edit before installing this. Safari - crashes adiumx - works

  13. to quote a post killerfurbies osbetaarchive "Sorry. I just found out that it's fake. Derf used remote desktop connection to connect to his computer that has Vista installed on it from his Macbook Pro, it fooled me... dry.gif"
