10.4: Install Tiger on older unsupported Macs
Authored by: The Gonif on Dec 16, '05 09:18:12AM

Tiger always let you install on a Blue & White PowerMac G3. The "PowerMac" in that file probably refers to the old beige G3 machine.

However, does anyone know how well Tiger would run on an iMac/333 with 256 MB of RAM? Better than Panther or worse? Will certain features not run well on an "unsupported" machine?

i've installed it, at a client's insistance. it didn't do well compared to panther. maybe flooding it with ram would have helped. but apples to apples it seemed much worse.

I'm running Tiger on an iMac my school gave me (333 mhz). Things run noticeably slower than my iBook but I have not seen much reduced functionality. You are only limited by the system requirements of the software you are trying to run.
