Or, it used to be anyway. For desktops, installs have been pretty seamless since about 2001. >but can't Apple machines too run Linux? Maybe even better with the >upcoming Apple line that use Intel CPU and board? Yeah, there's a version of Linux for PowerPc. However, since the Mach kernel is underlying OSX to begin with, it's usually not too hard to port. Much easier than doing a version to Windows, for instance. In this case, though, it looks like Freewheeling has a lot of dependencies on other libraries (ALSA, Jack, etc.) which may or may not have been previously ported, and that alone may complicate matters. Of course, the above is spoken from the viewpoint of a network and server admin, so YMMV. Some coder may swoop in in a minute and tell me I'm full of beans. ;) --m. -- _______ " I want to keep you alive so there is always the possibility of murder... later"
