    I have an old(er) mac mini with a core solo cpu running 10.6, and i want to use F@H on it, however i can't find a 32bit mac client, i try the v7 but i won't install because i'm not 64bit, i can't find a download for v6 and v5 seems ppc only, is F@H really going to say i can't help humanity because i have an old mac???:confused:

    you know i'm really not sure what to do here. maybe post this question on the fah forums? someone there would know the answer. you might have to install linux on it.

    offhand, I'd say just enjoy it as a Mac and don't bother folding with it. the clients are definitely 64-bit now and even modern CPUs have trouble keeping up with the new work units.

    and a fully stressed out mac mini isn't a happy sight (or sound).
