• Running syncterm on a PPC

    From knightwise@VERT/BEERS20 to All on Thu Jun 9 11:19:00 2022
    I've been playing around with BBS's for a couple of weeks now and thought it would be great to run syncterm from an old PPC iMac G3. I was wondering if any of you know if there are any PPC binaries out there I can find ?

    I saw someone post on Reddit about being unable to run SyncTerm on an iMac G3 - was that you? I was wondering if perhaps you had been trying to run a prebuilt one for Intel Macs. The source code for SyncTerm is available, and I suspect you may be able to build a PowerPC binary for Mac OS, if there isn't one already available.

    Digital Man (Synchronet author) may have an idea, but I've heard Deuce also did work on SyncTerm. Deuce may be more available in the Synchronet channel on Synchronet's IRC.
