Tigerbrew

A little experimental fork of Homebrew that adds support for PowerPC Macs, and Macs running Tiger (or Leopard).

Installation

You will first need the newest version of Xcode for your operating system installed. For Tiger that's Xcode 2.5, available from Apple here. For Leopard, Xcode 3.1.4, available from Apple here. Both downloads will require an Apple Developer account.

Paste this into a terminal prompt:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSkL raw.github.com/mistydemeo/tigerbrew/go/install)"

You'll also want to make sure that /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin are in your PATH. (Unlike later Mac OS versions, /usr/local/bin isn't in the default PATH.) If you use bash as your shell, add this line to your ~/.bash_profile:

export PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:$PATH

What Packages Are Available?

  1. You can browse the Formula directory on GitHub.
  2. Or type brew search for a list.
  3. Or use brew desc to browse packages from the command line.

brew help or man brew or check our wiki.

FAQ

How do I switch from homebrew?

Run these commands from your terminal. You must have git installed.

cd `brew --repository`
git remote set-url origin https://github.com/mistydemeo/tigerbrew.git
git fetch origin
git reset --hard origin/master

Something broke!

Many of the formulae in the repository have been tested, but there are still many that haven't been tested on Tiger and/or PowerPC yet. If something doesn't work, report a bug (or submit a pull request!) and we'll get it working.
