Well you will have to look for software made for the PowerPC architecture and not for x86 systems. Look for universal binary in the software as this shows that it will work on PowerPC architecture.As for the operating system OS 10.5 Leopard was the final version for PowerPC based systems.
Good luck

SOURCE: Network a G4 (OS 9) to a eMac (OS X)

Providing your G4 has its own monitor and both computers are up and running, the only thing you will be able to do with your crossover cable is file sharing, etc. You will be creating a LAN between the two.

SOURCE: eMac freezes quickly and regularly after startup

A number of eMacs and iMacs were build with a shipment of faulty capacitors. Your symptoms are consistent with this problem
Apple had an extended free repair program to fix these failures within three years of purchase, but the program expired because it's been more than three years since the last one was sold.
Turn your eMac over, remove the bottom door, and look at the tops of the two can capacitors you can see through the door. If the lines on the bottom of the capacitors form a K instead of a +, they are likely to be from the bad batch. If there is any brown crud or ooze anywhere in those lines or elsewhere on the can, the capacitors are visibly failed.

How to remove a tilt/swivel base from an eMac?

Hi Robert.
Remove all connections from your E-mac including powercord. Put a folded blanket on the floor and lift the E-mac from the table and put it on the folded blanket so that the screen is on the blanket. Now you have acces to the bottom. Unscrew and take the swivel off. Be careful because eMac is the heaviest computer ever made by Apple. Good luck.

Hi SardaIn order to upgrade your Safari you need to upgrade your OS to 10.4.11 at least.Try ebay for a copy. Once you have done that Software Update will automatically offer to update Safari to the latest version applicable.
It's not the machine - it's the OS that matters.

Emac can't see Epson tx100 printer

Hi there,

You should verify that your eMac has USB 2.0. If you go to the apple symbol on the top left hand corner. Click on About this Mac and go into your system profiler you can see what USB the computer has. Many of the eMac only came with USB 1.1 as this was the protocal of the time.

Hope this helps.

Network a G4 (OS 9) to a eMac (OS X)

OK - first, crossover cables let you network PCs together without a switch or router. I would strongly recommend returning the crossover cable and buying a router so that you can use both computers on the internet at the same time.

Second, the eMac monitor can not directly be used as a monitor for your G4 - it's not built that way. However, you can use Screen Sharing on OS X (if both have Leopard) or Apple Remote Desktop software (if you buy it) to remote control the G4 using the eMac.

You will DEFINITELY need a monitor on the G4 in order to set it up at all, so I hope you have that.

Keep in mind that you can buy, for less than $200, an LCD screen that is larger and better quality than the eMac, and it would leave the eMac useful as a second computer. Since the eMac is unlikely to work at all with Leopard, and you'd have to buy Apple Remote Desktop, you're going to spend less money by buying a separate screen for the G4.

Unable to upgrade to system leopard on my eMac

With software and computers changing constantly-I use older software for older macs. You will continuously run into problems dealing with new software and old computers. See if you can find older versions that still run great rather than the creative suite. Stick with earlier system software as well. Now days 640 for memory is not much because of the increase in software space use. You can also allocate memory to certain software you use most.
