Re: G3 (or other non-altivec machines) testers sought

Here's an interesting counterpoint to my previous experiences with an OldWorld Beige G3 PowerMac...

I tried installing on a Blue&White G3 NewWorld (just barely! -- it was one of the very first of Apple's NewWorld PowerMacs).

It has the G3 processor (no altivec) but the wigglys don't happen!

I installed from the Jan 21, 2007 09:10:17 UTC "businesscard" CD.

I haven't tried the whole testing process that Sjoerd recommended. I will do that soon.
