The FreeBSD/ppc project pages contain information about the FreeBSD port to the PowerPC® architecture. As with the port itself, these pages are still a work in progress.
The FreeBSD/ppc port is still a Tier 2 platform. That means it is not being fully supported by our security officer, release engineers and toolchain maintainers.
ISO images of FreeBSD &rel.current; suitable for New-World Macs are available for download, for details on how to obtain these see the release announcement. Please follow instructions given here.-
Courtesy of Peter Grehan and Tilman Linneweh, you can find some packages - here and - here. - Please note that these packages are now quite outdated. If possible, you - should use ports instead.-
The easy way to use ports on FreeBSD since 6.0-RELEASE is to use portsnap. Refer to the Handbook if you need assistance to use the Ports Collection.
Peter Grehan is the project leader. Contact him if you can contribute code. If you just want to know about the status of this project, check this page regularly or join the FreeBSD/ppc mailing list.
