Hi there,

1. could U give a hint how to run MacOS progs under linux? I have only Linux installed on a TiBook but I want to give a try to some MacOS stuff.
I know it is much more straightforward that Wine but I know it not.

2. What can i use instead of wine under Linux on PPC? that is maybe more problematic but i have to use two old progs (down to Win 98 /Me) that have no substitutes.


3. Happy new year to all in the Linux world!

Take a look at Mac on Linux. The last I heard, it isn't under active development any more, but it's in Portage.

AaronPPC:
You linked to the active project. I am the only active developer though.

salmonix:
1. There is no way to directly run MacOS programs under Linux, however, you can run MacOS itself using Mac-On-Linux as AaronPPC suggested to run these programs. There is no wine equivalent for PPC.
2. If you want to run x86 programs, you'll need to install qemu and run x86 linux + wine or windows in this virtual machine.
