Hi, brus brother.


I take it you are aware that the iMac G6 uses the PowerPC series of CPUs? These are generally deprecated, as far as the mainstream distro producers are concerned.


I'm really surprised that Mint18 still ports to the PowerPC architecture. Even Apple themselves quit using these processors a very long time ago.....


I wouldn't know about running this in other distros, but I do know this:-


One of our members on the Puppy Linux Forums has re-mastered a version of Tahrpup (based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 'Trusty Tahr') that has been set-up [b]specifically to act as a base for running ZoneMinder. By all accounts it runs extremely well.


If you're interested, you can find the thread here. Puppy can be installed to, and run completely from, a USB drive.....so no need to disturb your Mint install.


(My bad. Apparently, ZoneMinder is in fact a .pet package. However, the package will more than double the size of the Pup on which it runs.....in this case, Tahrpup 6.0.5.)


I don't, however, think that any Pup has ever been ported to the PowerPC architecture. I could, however, be wrong. I frequently am..!  :P


There is a wiki here.



Mike.  :wink:
