Is it possible to get Java 6 running on a Mac PowerPC with Mac OS X 10.4? AFAIK SoyLatte is only available for Intel processors.

Note that in addition to not working on PPC, Apple's Java6 does not work on 32 bit Intel either. And there are other restrictions for the new Java6, leading to opinions such as this.

As of December 2009, a beta of OpenJDK 7 for OS X 10.5 PPC is available at -- haven't tried it, and it's not quite what you were after, but it's the first I've seen so far of Java >=6 on any PPC OS X version! More details at .


Someone yesterday recommended SoyLatte for PPC (Installing Java 6 on Mac OS), and in fact these instructions seem to support his theory (read the comments where someone claims it works on his PPC):

YMMV :-) Or try building from source. Again, YMMV :-)

yes there is a 1.6 Version for PPC coming from the 10.4 Developer preview.

You can't install it via installer but go to /Volumes/Java SE 6 Release 1/JavaSE6Release1.pkg/ and copy Archive.pax.gz to your Desktop; gzip -d Archive.pax.gzand then pax or double click on Archive.pax.

Now there is the package content. Under /Your Desktop/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/bin you can find a PPC 1.6 JDK ;-) beta but an working 1.6 JDK.

Copy 1.6.0 to /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Version /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/bin/java

Thats it ...

There is one out there that works and runs on ppc tiger:

  1. get the .dmg and install it
  2. su root; cd /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions; ls
  3. make sure you see '1.6 -> 1.6.0' CurrentJDK -> 1.5
  4. rm CurrentJDK (removes symbolic link, not the jdk)
  5. ln -s 1.6 CurrentJDK
  6. java -version

java version '1.6.0-dp'Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-dp-b88-34)Java HotSpot(TM) Core VM (build 1.6.0-b88-17-release, interpreted mode, sharing)

Don't know where the package was downloaded from.


The only Java 6 for PowerPC I have seen is for Linux:

I am afraid you will have to stay with Java 5 on Mac OS X on PowerPC.
