Hi !

I'm a french 16 years old user, so sorry for my english :thumbsdown_anim: .

I have JaS 10.4.8 on my AMD PC, and I'm going to change.

Before my new install, I want to know witch version is better for an AMD system.

A french user said that TubGirl 10.4.10 is wonferfull for AMD, some other users said that Uphuck is faster, ...

I don't know witch version choose :) ...

I think I'll install TubGirl 10.4.10 but I want your opinion before...

 

Thank you !

While there's no substitute for learning like reading a little bit of the threads that are already devoted to your question, I'll tell you that the speed factor is about installation not how fast the OS operates. I would suggest trying variations of both until you're satisfied with your system. If you skip the DVD disk check at the beginning of the install, it only takes about 12-13 minutes per installation. That being said, AMD processors are the more difficult to get up and running, but there are many threads here about all the success stories.

To answer you JaS Installs are mostly "tuned" to Intel Chips

where TubGirl is more for AMD Users

Uphuck is the most Middle of the Road AMD & Intel, it also contains more Third-Party Software (i.e. M$ Office 2004)

 

The thing(s) to be more aware of are that your CPU has SSE3 (anything past S754 should be ok), or at the very minimum SS2

anything lower or slower, probably wouldn't work.

 

The other thing is that OSX is a lot easier to install on a PCIe System as say an AGP One.

 

BTW: Your better off sticking with ATA (IDE) HDD's, as SATA/SATAII is quite shaky on non-Intel Chipsets.

 

If your really serious about OSX (i.e. Leoppard 10.5), then it's best to start saving up for a new Intel System.

Eventually this is what I had to do, and I haven't regretted it either...

AMD processors are the more difficult to get up and running

True, that's why a dvd install made by an AMD user will most likely be more compatible with AMD systems, which is why the "tubgirl" releases are more stable in this situation.

Particular attention must be given though to the chipset and hard drive type: nforce later than nf4 would require pata for installation, not sata.
