Darwin Installation Instructions
In order to install GNU-Darwin, you must have a free partition
or hard drive with at least 2 GB of disk space.
Also, you should have your assigned IP address,
as well as those of your gateway and nameservers.
These instructions assume that you know how to edit
text under Unix. (Either learn vi or emacs :-)
OpenDarwin Documentation :
A very good place to look for informations on network setup,
netInfo and x86 issues.
Get the Darwin base installation: Go to
and get the most recent package. Alternatively, you can burn your own
GNU-Darwin bootable installer CD (Darwin 1.4.1), or you can simply
get the distribution (and many other usful things) on
CD-R / DVD-R

according to the installation instructions that come with the base installation.

Welcome to Darwin!
Run the GNU-Darwin base net-installer (PowerPC only)
Based on some experience with several Darwin-only installations,
a net installer script has been generated. It is alpha and untested,
so if it doesn't work, then use it as a guide. It can be easily modified
for Darwin v. OSX installations. gdNet-install will download a file
called getPackages, which can be modified for custom minimal installations.
to your home directory.
Edit the file, and set the following variables to appropriate values,
(also known as gateway),
Install wget and set the goto lines according the directions in the file.
Then, run the script with "source gdNet-install",
so that the program will exit if it encounters an error.
If you run into problems with the net installer, please
Log out by pressing ctrl-D, then login as the new user.
Install the GNU-Darwin distribution
See the installation instructions. Then, the real fun begins!
Where to go from here
