PermaLink Yes, 8.5 does work on non-Apple Macs...04/20/2009 10:58 PM
This is just a short entry so you know I didn't fall over and die when the installer actually completed.

Thanks to some cogent suggestions from Declan Sciolla-Lynch, yes, the standard Notes 8.5 installer can work on a non-Apple-produced machine running OSX. Just have to hack out the part of InstallationCheck that looks for Intel chips. The logic in there is bass-ackwards anyway... it should specifically check for PowerPC and run unless it finds it, rather than assuming that anything that doesn't register perfectly as an Intel is a PPC.

Now that Ed Brill is full-time on an Apple, these sorts of things will go away.

More later.

That, right there has to qualify for QotD!
