Project Description

I found in the basement an old vintage iMac G4 laying around taking dust. Has beautiful design, it's working and running original OS but pretty useless for modern computing standards.

Want to explore some repurpose / hacking idea. Maybe a tablet stand ? Second display ?

With a whopping 256MB of RAM, can it run a decently modern linux PPC distro ? When yes, can it be turned in a sound station ?

Goal for this Hackweek

  • Collect and tryout some hacking ideas, both hardware and software
  • Install a linux distro running "modern" os and tools
  • get familiar with PPC architecture


Looking for hackers with the skills:

Nothing? Add some keywords!
