Help a noob creating a Mangos zero server (old G5)



Hi all! I have an old PowerMac G5 with enough ram to be used as a server, and i was thinking trying mangos to plays sometimes with friends, we were all WOW players years ago.

We like the idea of a vanilla WOW (1.21) with mangos zero, but sadly i'm not experiences in compiling, mangos and other things needed, i'm a computer geek, technician but i'm quite noob with this stuff anyway.

So i've download mangos zero and it sists in my download, do i need xcode to compile it? First of all, can the server run on PPC cpu?

Thanks in advance to all who will help me!!!

You can use mangos on PPC powered systems, and Mac should have gcc on board if you install the OS X development kit. I have an old G4 myself on which I installed OS X 10.3 with development kit. There are some build issues here, and you need to install CMake manually.

Sure every suggestion is gold! I will download Homebrew.

I've quick read some guides in internet but i'm more confused than before how to set up all.

Now, the first step: compiling.

Do i simply need to type "make install" in Mangos source folder?
