    1. What is GNU-Darwin?

    GNU-Darwin is an Open Source BSD Unix-like OS based upon Darwin, from Apple Computer.

    2. What the difference between GNU-Darwin and Darwin?

    GNU-Darwin aims to be the most free Darwin distribution. Many of Apple's tools are replaced and enhanced by Open Source applications.

    3. Can I install GNU-Darwin with Mac OS X?

    Yes. Complete instructions are here.

    4. Can I use GNU-Darwin as a stand-alone system?

    Yes! GNU-Darwin can be installed on top of a Darwin installation or as a stand alone OS. You can download a bootable CD-R or purchase a non-bootable one from here.

    5. How do I install GNU-Darwin?

    There are various methods of installing GNU-Darwin: You can buy the CD, install over a network or on top of an existing Darwin installation. We prefer you buy the CD, as it supports the Distribution.

    6. Can I install GNU-Darwin without a CD?

    Apple used to have a downloadable installer that would install Darwin without a CD - if this were still available it would provide a way to bootstrap GNU-Darwin so a CD wasn't required at all.
    If you did install Darwin from Apple, then you can install GNU-Darwin on top. See the above questions for details of how to do this.

    7. How can I contribute to GNU-Darwin?

    Yes! You can contribute by simply installing GNU-Darwin, finding and reporting bugs and providing feedback (positive or negative) to the GNU-Darwin team. We also need more people using GNU-Darwin on Intel systems as well. The project always needs documentation. Feel free to ask in what ways you can help.

    8. Does GNU-Darwin run on Intel systems?

    Yes! Apple has compatibility requirements here. If you get GNU-Darwin to work on an unsupported system, let us know so we can share the information with others!

    9. I don't have a G3/G4, can I still run GNU-Darwin?

    Officially, no, but there have reported successes on some 604e machines.

    10. What are the system requirements for GNU-Darwin?

    Any computer that is officially supported by Mac OS X can run GNU-Darwin, as well as a very limited number of Intel configurations.

    11. Can I upgrade my existing Darwin installation to GNU-Darwin?

    Yes! Complete instructions are right here.

    12. How does Fink figure into all this? Can I use Fink with GNU-Darwin?

    Fink brings Unix software to Mac OS X/Darwin via an add on distribution system. You can use Fink with GNU-Darwin.

    13. I found a bug, where do I submit it?

    This depends on the bug. If it's something in the kernel, feedback should go to Apple. Bugs in the distribution should be submitted to the GNU-Darwin bug tracker.

    14. Are there any additional sources of help?

    Yes, you can subscribe to various GNU-Darwin mailing lists. Developers monitor this list.
