    Someone has to do it, might as well be me.

    So, when do we get OSX applications? Please?

      This request will be a bit more difficult than the others, since I don't have the requisite hardware yet. I'll work on it, though.

        Well, if you decide to develope a Mac version, we'll be happy to test it ;)

          Ditto here. I have a G4 Mac Mini...but it is a mac. I also have a G3 imac...since that is sitting unloved and unused, you could have it if you like for the project...the only problem is that it runs panther (version 10.3) and of course has slightly dated hardware (something like 333MHz =)

            Ditto, I'd throw one core of my Mac Pro this way.
            One side note here: The OSx version is kind of a pain in that it requires a PPC and an Intel version, so don't beat on the developers too hard.

              That's true... In fact, despite my all powerpc setup, I have to admit the intel macs have loads more crunching power, and an intel-only binary would probably be fine to start...I think CPDN allows only intel macs.

                Yup... I'm running it on my MacMini ;)

                But it's true that some projects have developed a Mac version now they're Intel powered

                  There are several projects out there that only either PPC or Intel OSX applications, but not both.

                  PPC only:
                  WEP-M+2 Project


                  Intel only:
                  RCN
                  Climate Prediction
                  ABC
                  ABC Beta

                    If I got a new mac, could I run boinc within a virtual machine running ubuntu or something similar? Has anyone else done this?

                      I'm using VMWare Fusion to run virtual Linux boxes on my Mac Pro:

                      Active:
                      MacLin-64, Red Hat FC 7 x86_64
                      MacLin-64b, Red Hat FC 7 x86_64

                      Test cases currently off-line:
                      MacLin-32, Red Hat FC 7 i686
                      MacWin-32, Windows 2000 Pro

                      PS- If you use Ubunta, set your power saving settings to max performance, otherwise it runs @ 50% of cpu speed.

                          I might actually have access to a Mac cluster here with the requisite compilers and libraries, so a Mac binary might happen in the near future.

                            That's great news! I'm looking forward to getting my Mac on-line running native code instead of VM's.

                                        I am new to this. I used to run SETI@Home long long ago, but stopped. I have this G4 ibook 1.2ghz, and a dual 2.5 GHZ G5. If you make a mac version please also do ppc as well.

                                          I just had two more team members sign up, who were disappointed that their Macs were not supported. Any ETA on the Mac version I can pass along to them?

                                            I\'ve got a couple of macs unhappily waiting on the sidelines for a mac app. I know you have a lot on your plate, but there\'s a lot of us out here that could add some significant crunch ...

                                                Sorry -- my curiosity age is showing....

                                                Hope to see OSX supported soon -... and looking at Parallels as a stop gap..... hmmm...

                                                        Sorry I haven\'t been making updates on this thread; things have been kind of hectic.

                                                        We\'ve gotten access to a machine here that should be able to compile a mac binary of CAMB. We\'re having a bit of a rough time with compiling it, though, since we\'re using a completely different FORTRAN 90 compiler than the other platforms.

                                                        We\'ll try to get it done ASAP, though.

                                                          In the meantime, I guess I\'ll just have to crunch for this project when I\'m dual-booted on my Intel Mac. Hope to see a native version soon!

                                                              In the meantime, I guess I\'ll just have to crunch for this project when I\'m dual-booted on my Intel Mac. Hope to see a native version soon!


                                                              Sign me up too. I\'ve been running my Mac Pro under Linux, it would be nice to have it back in \"Mac Mode\" rather than having to reboot it when I need it.

                                                                                We\'ve gotten access to a machine here that should be able to compile a mac binary of CAMB. We\'re having a bit of a rough time with compiling it, though, since we\'re using a completely different FORTRAN 90 compiler than the other platforms.

                                                                                We\'ll try to get it done ASAP, though.

                                                                                              Sorry.

                                                                                              Thanks.
