Can LinuxMint be installed on a Mac PC?

Post by robert.thompson » Thu Jan 01, 2015 11:51 am

Hello:

Will LinuxMint install on a MAC?

Not a Dual-Boot - replace the Mac OS.

Thanks,
Rob.

Link below will not work on a Mac Powerbook G4 correct? Since that particular computer has a PowerPC CPU?

I have a PowerPC G4 this is why I am asking.

Thanks.

There are some PowerPC available versions though I believe Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr. --> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCDownloads

I have not done it yet but am going to be.

Thanks for writing back.
