Assuming you are on OS-X, just download the source and compile/make it (I can help you here...) however if you google PHP OS-X there is a guy who did this already and it's all done for you. I'll comment more when I am opn a reliable network

I'd recommend installing a special package for OS-X called Linux. More specifically, LAMP.

Lol, yeah linux rulz...  Okay you mean install linux on a mac instead of os-x
or does it actually get emulated like wine or what?

So which linux distro do you favor i just spent the xmas holiday installing/uninstalling
all the latest and fedora 8  made me learn LILO/GRUB the hard way, favorite
was Ubuntu 7.10 (the gnome desktop looked like os-x sorta with animations)  followed by opensuse 10.3..
 honorable mention: Knoppix 5.1.1

Still wanna room full of pentiums and 20 copies of clusterknoppix....

Don't listen to VS, he suffers from terminal Mac envy and OS-X denial. It's really rather sad  ROFLMAO

I'm not sure if you can install linux successfully on a Mac. I heard you can do XP with bootcamp or something? Not sure about linux though, I was just yanking your crank. Probably you could do it with a virtual machine though.

I never run into the problem of where to install Linux because I have a plethora of ancient machines lying around.

No you are correct VS - you can dump OS-X completely and load virtually any variant of *nix on the box instead, although I would see this as the worst of all worlds since the drivers for it would clearly be fewer than any number of clone machines. Under the hood it's a pretty straight up Intel box now, which is why BootCamp even works.

But I think the Parallels or VMWare option would be better if you really need Linux... although since it's all Unix/Mach I don't know why you'd need a different kernel at all - I find it wonderfully stable and pretty damn standard (from a config/make/install perspective)

Recently I got a macbook
Got rid of the shitty OSX Tongue
Installed ubuntu on it.
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MacBookPro/SantaRosa
with a little bit of tweaking u can get the backlite,keyboard lite, wireless up and going.
supposedly u can get the remote thingie going too but i never bother.

Used to use vmware, but for shits and giggles decided to try http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/innotek (i am not sure who recomend that i forget).
It seems to run alot quicker then vmware, and also has advantage u do not need to compile kernel drivers, which is pain in ass since every time kernel undate ......
Cool part about virtualbox is that you can hide the desktop. So that way your windows apps appear to be native ones Smiley.
One think to beware about on macbook it does not have a right ctrl key, (which is used to jump in and out of virtualbook, so before u start it up makesure u remap it)

Same ole crap with virtualbox as vmware u can map virtual drives onto your linux mounts.

Paying the overpriced rate for a macbook and then installing ubuntu on it seems madness to me lol!


I use MAMP from http://www.living-e.de/en/index.php which works perfect in OS  X auto installing and managing php, apache, mysql

Yeah half of the price of a Mac is the proprietary hardware and software licenses. If I were just going to install Ubuntu, I'd get it from one of those companies that sells laptops with the latest distro pre-installed so I know I don't have to fuss with drivers and can get right down to pwning the intarwebz.

Depends on the day lol.

All my servers are FC6. I have Ubuntu, Gentoo, and Slackware on various desktops at home. I don't often use a GUI (get enough of it from the windoze boxes @work and my laptop), but when I do it's usually Gnome or Compiz Fusion.

Well I must confess that I'm a fan of Yum or apt-get for installations. Otherwise I typically try to find someone who has all the dependencies laid out for me so I can just compile all the necessary prerequisites. One thing I detest is unnecessarily bloated servers.
