    Sprog II on Mac OS X Tiger PPC 

    The Sprog II can be used on a PPC Mac running Mac OS X.  As the following screenshots show,  version 2.5.3 or Decoder Pro will work with JAVA 1.5.0.06. under Mac OS 10.4.11 Tiger Power PC version.   The current version of JMRI, which is included on the CD supplied with the Sprog II, will not work on the PPC Mac.

    There are detailed instructions on installing JMRI for sprog under Mac OS Tiger  at the following URL:

    http://bbmgroup.home.comcast.net/~bbmgroup/sprog/install/files/install_usb_mac.html

    Note that the sprog works at 9600 baud – if you set another value, it does not work.

     

    To get it all to work, you need the following files.

    FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_2_10.dmg

    Java comm installer 2

    JMRI.2.5.3.dmgRXTX.pkg

    RXTX.pkg

    These are the files you need to install JMRI on a Power PC Macintosh
