I would run Linux on it . Linux is growing leaps and bounds over Microsoft. Apple I believe just stole everything from Linux so in a sense it will feel sort of like a mac. The way it should of been done the first time. Here is a decent write up no sense me wasting energy on it.. go check out this http://superuser.com/questions/88779/how-to-make-a-powermac-g4-run-linux

SOURCE: The dreaded question mark???

It sounds as if your hard drive is damaged and is not mounting. As you are running OS 9 I suggest using Norton Systemworks and run it's disc repair facility Disc Doctor. This will make repairs to the hard drive to allow it to mount. (Unless the disc is too badly damaged). If this is the case you will need to replace the hard drive and re-install all your system and applications. If you haven't backed up your info, the damaged disc can be scanned and your files saved by a computer repair shop.

SOURCE: Installing OSX version from a dmg file

It is possible to install the OS from an image that's been generated on an external HDD as well, but you can't install the OS from a disk image that you're running within the OS. If you lost your installation disc, you can get a replacement by calling Apple.

My Facebook PAGES will not work properly? Everything else does on facebook? Im on an old Imac, no updates are outstanding?


Hi Danielle

No Updates outstanding does not mean that it's up to date.
It means there are no more Updates to that particular OSX version. Eg osx10.5.8 You can Often move up to the next OSX 10.6 or osx 10.7 or OSX10.9 Maverics...which is free.

The new OSX will install not only a now OS but New Browser and many other enhancements that you are currently going without

You do have to do a full backup (Use Carbon Copy Cloner - for Bootable clone) to another clean external hard drive. Then you use your new Downloaded mavericks OSX10.9.DMG file to install a clean updated OS.
Get a free copy of MacTracker to look up your Mac model and determine if it can go as far as Maverics & Memory required.
But even if you can only go to the Next version up then you are still in front. I keep a copy of all versions but I'm not sure how or where you could get them. They are large files.

If all else fails... find someone in your area. (I'm in OZ)

Brother MFC 6800 won't send scan results to iMac. The scan function appears to work, although nothing appears when using iPhoto or Picass for Mac. I am using Mac OX 10.6.5


Hi
I had the same problem. I knew the scan function was not broken because I could use it with my old PowerMacG4. But no go with the new Intel iMac, and no amount of driver updating or other OS fiddling solved anything.
I luckily found another MFC-6800 to test. And to my surprise scanning is working, and printing is much improved (no more "offline printer" when it's clearly online). The difference between the two: firmware version. My MFC is dated from 2001, while the other one is from 2004. For the date see the label behind the machine.
Now, why does scanning work on my old PowerMac G4? Apple probably changed something in the Intel drivers or the USB circuitry, or Brother didn't adhere to proper standards in 2001. Or it may be as stupid as an inability of the older Brother board/firmware to deal with USB 2 levels, even throttled down to USB 1.1. Who knows? Anyway I'm in contact with Brother and hope to get a way to upgrade the firmware in my printer.
Did you try scanning with Graphic Converter? Some Adobe products need updates to properly scan in Snow Leopard.
Hope this help.

Safari doesn't work on this used Imac G4 I just bought, but Camino does work? How do I get Safari working on this old thing?


On the left Top of your monitor is a apple Logo.Tip on it and select "About that Mac" A Window pops up and you select "More Info" it shows you the OSX on it. OSX 10.3 or OSX 10.4 Google "Safari Browser for OSX 10.? " Download it and it will work. You may have the latest Version.

I have imac. and i want to change his operating


Yes it is very easy to do as you are running a Mac with Intel Processor. You have Mac OSx Leopard with updates 1,2, & 3. To upgrade to Mac OSx Snow Leopard you must buy the upgrade. Go here: http://www.apple.com/macosx/ On the top right click (Buy Now) You will have to pay $29 which is a bargain. Once you get the upgrade on CD simply follow the directions for the simple upgrade. I did the same thing when Snow Leopard came out. It is well worth the $29.

Imac / illustrator10


According to something I read in another forum:
Use migration assistant (in utilities) to copy over Illustrator 10 via firewire from your G4 to your imac. This is the only thing that might work without upgrading to a newer version of Illustrator. 

I'm planning on trying it with both Illustrator 10 and Indesign 2.0 - Photoshop 7 won't go at all no matter what one tries according to what I've read. I'll be upgrading to CS3 for Photoshop. No choice.
