Strip x86 code from fat binaries
Authored by: boredzo on Aug 17, '05 03:15:02PM

the lipo solutions are:

  • lipo -thin ppc
  • lipo -remove i386

both of these should result in a ppc executable. I have not tested this, however; I'm just going by the manpage.

Strip x86 code from fat binaries

The difference is lip -thin ppc will remove i386 and ppc64 if present (i.e. also killing any G5-optimised version) while lipo -remove i386 will leave ppc and ppc64, and any other architectures that are present.
