Has anyone heard of a successful Panther installation on a non-supported Mac? Beige G3? Older Mac with an upgrade card? Just curious.

Cheers :-> Bill

It won't work on a non-supported Mac unless a hack is made (and even then it may not).

As of now, no.

BUT

The makers of XPostFacto said that once they got a hold of the Darwin source code (which was released today), they could have a go at updating XPostFacto to support all the computers they had working with 10.2, so give it a couple of weeks, and we should be good to go. :D

If you don't have a PCI videocard installed, it should install on your beige.

It won't install on any Beige G3. The Beige G3 is no longer supported by Mac OS X (10.2 is the latest OS X version supported).

And nothing later than Mac OS 8.1 is supported on clones, what is your point?

Have you installed Mac OS X Panther on a Beige G3 without hacks or modifications?

Attempting to install Panther on a Beige G3 will give you an error saying that your machine is not supported (and quit the installation process). And according to Apple's System Requirements Page the Beige G3 (all models) aren't supported.

There is a certain USB PCI card you can install that OS X will see as built in USB, although the brand/model number escape me at the moment.
