A little experimental fork of Homebrew that adds support for PowerPC Macs, and Macs running Tiger (or Leopard).
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:
What Packages Are Available?
- You can browse the Formula directory on GitHub.
- Or type
brew searchfor a list.
- Or use [
brew desc][brew-desc] to browse packages from the command line.
brew help or
man brew or check our wiki.
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
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.
Homebrew is originally by mxcl, a splendid chap. This fork is by @mistydemeo, incorporating some code originally written by @sceaga.
