Alright, well how mhz of procesor speed do you need to run Tiger on my Apple ?
i have it running on a 400mhz imac g3 so maybe less than that
A G3 processor / build-in Firewire / 256 MB of Ram / 3GB of hard drive space (300 Mhz minimum )
Have to have a DVD capable drive, unless you can find someone with the set on CDs.
here's the requirements for it:
To use Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, your Macintosh needs:
A PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 processor
At least 256 MB of RAM
DVD drive (DVD-ROM), Combo (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) or SuperDrive (DVD-R) for installation
At least 3 GB of free disk space; 4 GB if you install the XCode 2 Developer Tools
i'm using 10.4.1 on my 500mhz dual processor and it runs without any slowdowns
Alright Thanx , so 450mhz should be fine for now .. ?
yup will be fine. wont be super quick though just a heads up but will be functional for sure
Ah alright , well shurely better then what I have now !!haha , Im pretty shure its panther or something like that .
remember tiger has a 256mb ram min wheras panther is 128mb, how much ram does your comp have?
at any rate it will work fine. like i said i have a 400mhz imac with 256mb (from 2000) running tiger pretty well. im spoiled to have a macbook too so obviously it feels slow to me lol
Well Good thing for me is that my Cube is already set with 1 Gb. !
Alright , sweet ... thanx
then you'll definetly won't have any problems running tiger.
isn't that maxed out? 2x512mb?
Dumb question coming up so brace yourselves.
Is it possible to remove bits and bobs of an operating system to make a low end Mac run quicker? As an example, I don't need anything to do with the internet so if I somehow remove all internet related gubbins, would the rest of it run any better/quicker?
It should be possible, but it WONT BE EASY... There might be a app that does it, there is one for Windows, but im not sure...
Nope a cube can go up too 1.5Gb. ( 3x 512MB sticks)
