Previewing PlayOnMac!

Wednesday 11 February 2009 at 19:49

Hello everyone,

Here is a news that will make Mac users happy. Today, PlayOnLinux releases the first beta of PlayOnMac, a version of PlayOnLinux specifically designed for Mac OS.

This version works perfectly on Leopard.
It should also work on Tiger, as long as you've installed python, wxpython and X11.
You must have a recent mac with an Intel CPU.

Darwine 1.1.5 (Wine compiled for Mac OS X) is included in the package.

At the moment, we have two scripts (to do tests):
- Notepad++
- Crayon Physics.

Obviously, this list should grow in the future.
The repositories are the same as PlayOnLinux's ones. You just have to tick the box saying "this script is PlayOnMac compatible" to integrate a script to PlayOnMac when submitting it.

Here are some screenshots:

Have a good day
