    Hello gang,


    Tried searching the forums for this but I could not find an answer so I am asking:

    Back in the day, Pink Floyd had this awesome screensaver which featured a flying pig and farms. I recently located the file but when I expanded it, I got this message:

    Is there any way to update this kind of file so that it will work in 10.6? Here is what the opened file looks like in Finder:

    In order to use the Screen Saver under Mac OS X, it would need to be rewritten to run on Mac OS X 10.6. You could also run SheepShaver or boot Mac OS X 10.4 on a PowerPC Mac to see the Screen Saver. But as far as wrapping that program (more likely a Mac OS 9 Control Panel) to run under Mac OS X? Can't be done. Sorry.

    Classic environment is gone.
    You need a newer version of the screensaver.

    That's what I was afraid of.


    I appreciate the help!
