Hi Folks,

Been searching to see if anybody has asked the question before but not found anything...

Has anybody tried an Intel Mac Mini running Debian/LinuxCNC?

I've got a couple spare (circa 2009 so not able to run the latest few versions of Mac OS X) which are Core2 Duo. They've got a gigabit port onboard and have built in WiFi (or could use a USB Ethernet port).

Not sure if will have enough grunt, but seems a waste them sitting here doing nothing...

Sounds like fun, why not give it a try?

If you can get Linux working (and AFAIK it isn't that hard) then the only other likely problem is whether the network interface is compatible.
