why don't you just dual boot your hackintosh instead of waiting for a miracle?


Very valid point, and well taken. However, I let my machines crunch while I use them. And I use commercial software that is simply not available for Linux. Use Windows? Hm, er, no thanks (except for this one machine which is now *only* crunching Milkyway, and doing nothing else). That simply seems a waste to me, sorry. I would much prefer to have all 3 of my boxes running Milkyway, rather than have one dedicated to Mikyway alone, and the other two doing Einstein whilst I use them productively, simply because there is no MW for Mac/GPU.
And in terms of overheating; I haven't heard of these problems occuring first-hand, and certainly haven't experienced these kinds of issues. So I'll continue waiting for a miracle :-)

Thanks for your well meant comment, again, it's a valid point but unfortunately not applicable to me.

Kailee.

Do you expect the Mac compatible version to be ready soon? I have back-up projects keeping my machines busy but I am looking forward to helping with MilkyWay again. Thanks for all your hard work and the helpful replies I have seen in the past. It must take away from time spent on the project. I understand that the OS's that have the greatest returns should get the highest priority but I expect that there are a number of Mac users in the same boat as I am. Keep an keeping on. :-)


Hi Jake,

Same question concerning Mac compatible version. Still no task available today.

Hi all,

I'm running a few boxes w ok hardware (2x dual Xeon 5670, 1x dual Xeon 5630), so plenty of cores, and also nvidia gpus in each. Two of these are hackintoshes, and are therefore unable to run opencl versions of the MW apps (see here). Are there any plans for opencl apps for Mac?

Many thanks in advance,
