Mac-on-Linux supports Mac OS X (including Jaguar)
by Peter Cohen,
September 7, 2002 12:00 pm ET

Ibrium HB noted that Mac-on-Linux (MOL) now supports Mac OS X, 10.1 and 10.2 inclusive. MOL is an open source effort that enables Macs running PowerPC Linux to run Mac OS (and Mac OS X) natively while still working with Linux.


The new version, MOL 0.9.65, also supports little endian (remote) displays and features a couple of performance enhancements, according to the developer.

The software supports Mac OS 7.5.2 and higher, and has full screen video, MMU-accelerated X video, audio support, ADB and USB support, AltiVec support, and a variety of other features as well.

Because MOL runs natively on the processor, its developers say that it works very fast. There's another benefit, too -- MOL running Mac OS 8.6 or later doesn't require a ROM image to work.
