No, this won't work, not even "unofficially". Your best bet is to install LinuxPPC.

LinuxPPC only work on PowerMacs with PCI slot, doesn't work on NuBus Mac. You can run mkLinux on 6100 instead.

Supported Older Machines:
Nearly every old Apple Macintosh that has PCI is supported. The following are working old world ROM machines:
* Beige G3 (desktop, minitower), All-in-One G3
* 1997 & 1998 Powerbook G3 Series ("Wall Street")
* Power Mac 7600, 8600, 9600
* Apple Network Server
* Apple Workgroup Server 7250, 8550, 9650, G3
* Power Mac 7500, 8500, 9500
* Power Mac 7200, 8200
* Performa 6360, 64xx
* Power Mac 4400, 7220
* Powerbook 3400c
* Powerbook 2400c
* Power Mac 5400, 5500, 6400, 6500
* 20th Anniversary Macintosh
* Apple PowerBook 1400, 5300
<STRONG>* Apple Power Mac 6100, 7100, 8100</STRONG>
Not only will it run, it's supported.

iBabo,

as far as I remember, according to Apple, Darwin is being supported on the same range of hardware as Mac OS X (i.e., original G3 and up) even though the actual requirements such as RAM, etc. will be considerably lower for Darwin than for OS X.

If you are particularly interested in Darwin because of its BSD aspect, have a look at the NetBSD website:

http://www.netbsd.org/

The 6100 is clearly within the range of supported Macs under NetBSD.

Regards,

Walter.

Try for BSD if you want unix. I would avoid linux. I have some version of unix on my LCIII.

This seems misleading since right under that it says
<STRONG>Unsupported Other models:
* Apple Performa/Power Mac 5200, 5300, 61xx, 6200, 6300 but they can run MkLinux
* Apple Workgroup Server 7150, 8150, 9150 can also run MkLinux
* Apple PowerBook 2300c but it can also run MkLinux
* Many 68020 (with PMMU and FPU), 68030 and 68040 machines can run Linux. Visit http://www.mac.linux-m68k.org for more information. </STRONG>

Isn't 61xx the same as 6100.

i acctually have a copy of LinuxPPC 2000 and it doesnt work on the 6100, i was told by a friend that its worth trying out to see if Darwin would work on the 6100.
edit:spelling mistake
