Hi!
I know it's a very (indeed verry) generic and big question:
Is there an aros mac mini ppc version?
Is there any tool to build a ppc version of aros?

There are nightly builds for the SAM440 and Efika. Both are PPC systems but I'm not sure how they are doing.

If you want to run AROS on a PPC Mac Mini, you'll have to install PPC Linux and run hosted AROS on that.

There's no native AROS hardware drivers or boot loader written and tested for the Mac powerpc hardware. I have run aros-hosted under linux-ppc on a powermac G5 in the past, but it (ABIv1 trunk) may not build currently. There were also known problems running hosted under darwin which I don't think have been resolved.

I tested aros on ppc linux (powerbook G4) few weeks ago but I found the build outdated and buggy. (ABIv0)

I'd be also interested in Darwin PPC AROS hosted as well. There was one for download not too long ago but it's not there anymore?

A bounty for QEMU PPC (probably the 'g3beige' or 'mac99' variants) could probably revive enough interest to get the ABIv1 port fixed.

Sam460 ppc is getting there. Probably about a month more or so.

If someone wants to contribute a PPC G3/G4 mac-mini, I can work on that next.
