32 bit on old mac

Postby ma4 » Fri Aug 05, 2016 7:26 pm

Hi

I'm trying to install OZFS on a Mac Mini 2,1 running ML - I'm trying different ways of using it as a second backup server.

The mac is running a 32 bit kernel, is there a simple way of compiling for a 32 bit target? I have homebrew + last release of Xcode for that OSX version. Builds a 64 bit version fine.

Thanks

The code is no longer capable of running on a 32 bit machine. Sorry.

We've not supported 32 bit for quite some time, but we did once. So it wouldn't be impossible to get to work, but it would not really work well. But if you want a code challenge...

I run version 1.2 on a 32-bit Mac. It's fine for most purposes.

Yep, that would have been the last capable release I think.

As lundman says it may well be possible to craft something out of the current code, but the SPL would need some work.
