Ran both the versions of lgpt in the rarchive on my mac but neither of them worked, they opened and closed instantly. Its a p old mac, running OSX 10.3.smth I think snow leopard? The mac install is basically clean so maybe there are libraries in missing, I tried looking through some support threads and searching but couldn't find anything. Any help would be much appreciated, trynna work on my old psp/canoo stuff but both of them are very inactive

I would highly doubt it runs on 10.3. It's intel/ppc which I don't think really kicked in til 10.4

10.3 isn't snow leopard. snow leopard is 10.6. i think it should be possible on snow leopard, but like saskrotch says it's highly unlikely to work on 10.3 if that's what you're running

Rah, well thats somewhat disappointing, its one of the semicircle macs with the protruding screen face thing so i dont think it can run any versions of OSX higher than the one its already on;

If i cant use it to do piggy compositions, are there any other trackers that would run on such minimal specs? id preferably not have to emulate anything, writing for any console/system/whatever is cool, id just like to do something

i believe you could get ubuntu running on that machine (maybe do it as a dual-boot in case you want to use old mac software too), which might let you use the linux version of piggy tracker on it

Yeah your wheelhouse on that thing is going to be old PPC Mac  audio software. Of which there are myriad. I'm sure there's still stuff around on torrent sites and shit. I only advocate that for legacy software.

That's a very good idea.

thats a shout, its not my mac, but the owner is looking for new uses for it so this might go down well, thanks

currently got some things to test along these lines, a couple trackers on woolyss seemed like they'd work, or at least worth a shot.

The things thats kinda stumping me is that on the piggy homepage it even says;

if you're in the Facebook piggy tracker group there may be someone who has more specific answers if you post in there

I couldn't get piggy running on a clean sierra machine the other day so you might have to install some dependencies you have to setup or permissions too, need to check my working machine.

Milkytracker  should run on your hardware.
