ppc OS X hosted

ok... Trying the darwin-ppc-system but I don't know how to start it. I double clicked the tar.bz2 file in OS X and the archive was extracted to the same usb flash drive.

There doesn't seem to be specific instructions for the OS X hosted version so I tried to follow the linux-i386 hosted instructions but the terminal simply reports -

-bash: boot/aros-base: cannot execute binary file

not sure about osx but in linux you cant run programs from fat32-formatted drives.
copy tar.bz2 file to your home folder and extract it there.

I'm not 100% sure about that port, but usually you should run boot/AROSBootstrap.

Thank you for those suggestions. I think I'm on the right track but still not quite there...

$ boot/AROSBootstrap
[ELF Loader] Calculating kickstart size...
[ELF Loader] Code 1117791 bytes, data 7613 bytes, BSS array 24 bytes
[ELF Loader] Loading kickstart...
[ELF Loader] Code 0x200000, Data 0x802400, Module aros-bsp-darwin...
[ELF Loader] Code 0x238fe8, Data 0x803ab4, Module aros-base...
[Bootstrap] entering kernel at 0x200000...

... then it just drops back to the terminal. btw OS X was installed with the X11 support option.

The one I've got is only about a week old but I take your point.

Who put the OS X release out? Or are these things just the product of a sophisticated build environment that isn't supposed to need individual support for specific platforms?

These are not releases, but rather nightly builds -- automated builds done from the current revision of source tree. They are not checked by any humans after compilation is done, but rather uploaded automatically to the sourceforge.

As I wrote the nightly builds are not controlled by anyone. Even worse - supporting e.g. OSX PPC hosted is relatively hard, since we do not have the Rosetta PPC emulator since OSX 10.7... I personally do not own any PPC mac anymore and cannot test the builds.
