Apple Today, I decided to give Linux a try on my iBook. I've been wanting Linux on my iBook for a long time, but I've simply never had the time to do it. I ran the occasional PowerPC live CD, but live CD's are far cries from the real, installed thing. A second showstopper was that suspend never really worked-- and I cannot use my iBook without suspend. After trying out a new live CD yesterday, I found out that suspend on lid closure now worked mighty fine on Linux/PPC; hence, it was time to do the real thing. And oh how I was left surprised.

MacOnLinux reversed?

Isn't there an OSX tool that allows linux to run from the same partition in a virtual environment in OSX? Sometimes i like to test tools on linux but don't want to reboot.

Maybe the latest version of Qemu (Q) runs decently when running PowerPC code on PowerPC machine?

Anyone got experience with this?

try Mac-on-Mac: http://maconmac.bastix.net/

It's a os x port of the good Mac-On-Linux.
It's not perfect, but works.
