IT’S ALIVE, IT’S ALIVE !
So it’s not perfect yet, with some minor USB issues (usb1 only at the mo), and no Audio, but hopefully these wont be too difficult to fix. 10.5.8 shouldn’t prove a problem, so that’ll be done when I get the box home and hooked up to my network. I also need to run a command at bootup at the moment which tells it to boot with only 1 core running (which kinda sucks as it’s a dual core chip), this is probably my fault somewhere in the install, as there are a couple of other people who do not have this problem.
Next step is to install all the software that I use, and then take a nice fresh backup (before and after any data goes on). Not sure what I’m going to do regarding connecting it to the network yet, prob just get a generic usb wifi dongle to pop into it (as it has 6 USB ports it wont be a problem to keep one with this in) or see if I can pick up a cheap wifi bridge on eBay.
More posts to follow once I’ve had a bit more of a play about (prob over the weekend)
