[REBOL] Re: View 1.3 Mac OS X ?

From: dominique::hitoro::net at: 1-Jul-2005 9:18

It is coming but the wait is excruciating. Yesterday, I was rushing to get View running on something and here is =20 a summary of my experience: - My Cube refuses to boot with a Mac OS 9.1 disk since I have an upgraded processor. No way to install Classic without booting and installing a valid Mac OS 9 system. Anyway, my last experience with Rebol on Mac OS 8 wasn't great, due to limitations of that environment. - UAE is very slow, even when using the JIT version on a 1.2 Ghz processor with lot of cache. There is a network problem too: View can't connect via the emulated bsdsocket while other applications can. - Qemu is even slower and I have no space left to host a 2-8 Go image =20 of a Linux environment. - In last resort, I was ready to partition my disk in order to install Debian, but the installer refuses keyboard input and I didn't =20 go further than the "select your language" screen. It seems that new input device layer in the kernel doesn't work on some PowerMac. Now, I am a bit embarrassed as I need to write some demos for a cross-=20 platform application and I keep promising that View is a efficient tool for this kind of purpose. Any idea of a release date? Any progress since that report [1]? [1] Le 01-juil.-05 =E0 07:51, Miguel Lopez a =E9crit :
