Leopard on Asus Eee PC
One blogger recently installed Leopard on his Asus Eee PC, despite requiring a number of workarounds. Initially shipping the Xandros Linux, and later installing Windows XP, he found several tutorials for putting Mac OS X on a PC and decided to undertake the task. Leopard is designed for SSE3, and had to be modified to run on the Eee's SSE2, which he says is available through a page at Lifehacker. The next step involves creating an X86 compatible version of Leopard that is able to be installed on a beige box PC, using a hack from OSX86 Scene. Once a disk image for Leopard is obtained, the rest of the install is handled through a series of line commands and modifications. The blogger cautions that Leopard runs a bit slowly on his model, which has 512 MB of RAM.
