Bonjour est-il possible de savoir si mon vieux mac book pro 17" Aluminium version 10.6.8 en 32 bits , Processeur 2,16 Ghz Intel Core Duo , mémoire 2 667 Go de SDRAM supportera un Linux et si oui lequel ? .
Cordialement.
Jean Dona.

Welcome to the forums,
As an international board we ask that you make all post in English.
although 32 bit is being phased out, in answer to your question YES there are several 32 bit distributions that should run on your old Mac, but you may have some initial problems in setting it up [due to peculiarities of mac products]

This one should work nicely on that old mac.
choose the 386 version. As Brickwizard has said there are some hoops you may have to jump through because of Mac hardware. But just ask and you should find answers here.


Celui-ci devrait bien fonctionner sur ce vieux mac.

choisissez la version 386. Comme l'a dit Brickwizard, il y a quelques obstacles à franchir en raison du matériel Mac. Mais il suffit de demander et vous devriez trouver des réponses ici.

I want to say it was Jarret B that did a recent tutorial for installing Linux on an old Mac, as well. So, that's here on the forum if the OP needs additional directions. Some of the newer Mac devices require 'nomodeset', so you may want to prepare for that issue.

I'll dig out the link in case y'all need it to help the OP:
