Supported Platforms

Postby fmadrid » 3. Dec 2008, 17:43

At present, Smalltalk/X is available for the following systems:

System <CPU>
Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003 <Intel/AMD x86>
Linux 2.6/glibc2.6 <Intel/AMD x86/x86_64>
Sun Solaris <Sparc,x86>

We can, however, upon request provide versions for other systems, for example:

FreeBSD / NetBSD
Alpha OSF-1 and VMS
RealIX 88k

For more information please refer to the chapter "Architecture specific Features, Limitations & Notes" in:

EDIT: cg, 30-nov-09: added x86 to sun solaris

Is Smalltalk/X available for MAC OS?

Unfortunalety, Smalltalk/X is not available for MAC OS and, for the moment, there are no plans to support this platform.

well, I continue to peek at the mac, but unless there is more pressure from paying customers, it can only run at low prio. I'd love to have it running on a mac, too.
The older platforms like SGI, RealIX and AIX are not really supported any longer, unless someone pays for it (I wonder, if those old machines in the cellar would even boot... the last time I tried, the realtimeclock battery of the SGI was empty, and it refused to boot !). However, if someone really needs it, and pays for the machine and time, we can reanimate those beasts :lol:

And FreeBSD?

I'm such kind of FreeBSD user. Mac OS X's Darwin kernel for example, is being based on FreeBSD.

How about a quick test with Smalltalk/X in FreeBSD by me?
I can try it in FreeBSD!
