Has Anybody Tried Isadora on a Hackintosh?

    Has anybody tried Isadora on a Hackintosh?

    This is purely to satisfy my personal curiosity, I'm not looking to actually do it.

    I assume it'd be a nightmare to trouble-shoot the Frankenstein issues, but then again, it could be the best of both worlds.

    Thoughts?

    Best Wishes,

    Woland (Lucas Wilson-Spiro)



  • I tried and it worked great.

    @Woland I am going to be going there in the next few months:  I work in Windows but there are audio things I want to explore that are simplicity itself to do in Mac / Mac version of Isadora and stupidly difficult (for me, anyhow!) in Windows. Seems that the secret to success is build/buy a box that's already been tried and tested by the Hackintosh communities, of which the best seem to be tonymacx86.com and insanelymac.com. Am seeing some last-generation HP Workstations that are powerful machines and are easy to Hackintosh...

    @mark_m Good to know, thanks!

    @ioio Nice to know it's possible, thanks!



  • I had mixed results - some systems worked fine and others I couldn't get it to run at all. I never found out why.

    @gavspav that was my intuitive feeling about this topic

    @crystalhorizon 

    Yeah, that was sort of my fear, that it'd be nearly impossible to troubleshoot.

    And that's why I think you have to go with a tried and tested solution, rather than hoping for the best with the hardware you happen to have
