G5 (x32) Virtualization.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

so I wanted to *make* sure I can always hit the net, even when support for the G5 bites the aluminum coated dust. I had an idea, if I get 'Q' [kju] and put any x32 on it (Ubuntu, Lubuntu XP) I can have a share folder to send my garageband stuff to my jamming partner. now I had used Q before on my old MDD G4 and it worked fine. but today I went to download and use it and it is a DISASTER of a program. two years ago, rave reviews, now all people seem to say 'doesn't work!'.

WOE happened to this once fine project?

so to conclude, does anyone know where I can get the old version of this prog from two years ago when it worked?


peace

Dava

(none of that was aimed at anyone, just bit fed up, wasted a day on Q, and have fond memories of the old Q)

okay so I had some thoughts on keeping the Mac running..

like using remote desktop that I can swap files around and send them, but that is an awful idea, as it would totally slow down the system and be totally impractical, ridiculous to run two machines for one.

Virtualzation MUST be the way to go, to get both Garageband and a 32 bit OS.

Lubuntu would be good but doesn't install.

too tired just now, but wanted to bump this.

peace

......wait a mo, a NAS box! I could load up all the files and send them via the laptop! pain in the bum for time, but it'd work! ooww NAS boxes are pricey n I'm broke. :S file server, make a backup comp? hmm some thoughts there.
