Hi people, I've been asked offline by Kevin:
Hi, I have an old powerpc mac mini at home that runs 10.4.11 os x.I don't suppose there's a package for 4.3 or 4.4 lurking somewhere on the internet that I can't find? Or was Self always distributed in code form?I've just grabbed a copy of the 4.4 code that has manuals for 4.3 inside that contain instructions for building on Mac with Xcode, which must be roughly contemporary to what I have.Or would 4.4 build OK anyway? I can't try it right now.The new release requires later mac os/Xcode.Thanks for any help you can provide.
Anyone happen to have a PPC Mac VM sitting around? Cheers Russell

Are we talking about sources or binaries? On the computer I am typing this on I seem to have the sources for:
self4VM Jun 21 1996 self4.1VM October 9 1999 self4.1.2VM October 9 1999 self4.1.5VM April 8 2002 self4.1.6VM October 2 2002
The first one seems to be Sparc only, but the rest do have PowerPC stuff in them.
Looking at the backups for my old Macs, I see a Self4.1.6 that I used in my G4 iBook and it does have a 28MB Self binary deep in the vm folder. I imagine that the binary I actually ran was in the Applications folder which I didn't back up. When I get home I can check if the machine still works, in which case we can get stuff from Applications. But the full folder name where Self is indicates that it is usable:
