XPostFacto, HELP ME I"M NEW HERE!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I know someone has used this app or else the guy wouldn't keep updateing it. It's XPostFacto and this app edit's some files in Mac OS X so it runs on a 604e PowerMacs.

Now I know people will start saying it will run slow on a 604e. But as i said before someone is useing this app for this guy to update it every new OS X that comes out. This is from his web site, about how it runs on a 604e,

"... my impression is that the performance of OS X is somewhat slower than the performance you would expect from supported computers with a similar processor, but it is in the same ballpark. Mac OS X 10.1 actually feels fairly useable with a 200 MHz 604e."

Now I want to try OS 10.1 on my Mac but i would like someone's feedback as to how it runs with this app. Does it work? And for users that have OS X on there G4's how can i make OS 10.1 run faster....is there things i can trun off to make it run faster?

If you know anyone that has used this app and used 10.1 on a 604e PLEASE post about it here.

For anyone that want's to see this guy's web site go here: <a href="http://eshop.macsales.com/OSXCenter/" target="_blank">http://eshop.macsales.com/OSXCenter/</a>

So people i'm new here, give me all of the feedback you can as to how i can make this all work, i don't want to crash in os 9 anymore and os 10.1 looks like it's for me.

Thanks

I've been using XPostFacto (actually the older version I have is called Unsupported Utility X -- Ryan renamed it a few months ago). I run it on a 8550 with a Newer G3/250Mhz upgrade card.

Works great for me. But I only use the machine as a server; AppleShare, FTP, Web, http, so I can't tell you how fast it will be sans upgrade card, with Aqua overhead.

Hope this helps.

here's site on the machine:
