https://github.com/sceaga/homebrew/tree/tiger

An attempt as an installer to Homebrew for Tiger PPC.

INSTALL
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSLk https://raw.github.com/gist/1144389/60af0b072505042279cb0d713f4aa0fdbb692020/install_homebrew.rb)"

Today groups revealed that staff exists. I may have created it or something as I didn't see it forewords.
So you may try: sudo dscl . -append /groups/staff GroupMembership $USER

@fenollp

You may need tar. I kinda messed up with fink and it replaced my former which and tar… When I removed fink, it also removed tar! Strangely enough my which is the former /usr/bin/which one…

If you're in my case, you may see a Warning about installing XCode and something about csh just before. It is because of fink's which.

@fenollp

If you see a Warning that says "/usr/local/bin is not in your PATH", you may type /bin/echo "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin" >> ~/.profile or whichever .bashrc, .csh, …

@fenollp

which -s doesn't exist on Tiger PPC, so I replaced it with [ `/usr/bin/which gcc` = /usr/bin/gcc ].

If you're having permissions issues (related to staff | wheel), do:

## Add yourself to group:staff
sudo dscl . append /Groups/staff GroupMembership $USER
dscl . -read /Groups/staff | grep GroupMembership
# sudo dscl . delete /Groups/staff GroupMembership $USER

## Change /usr/local/'s group & user (/usr/local is the default target directory)
sudo chown -Rf $USER:staff  /usr/local

## Remove Homebrew
cd `brew --prefix`
sudo rm -rf Cellar/
brew prune
sudo rm -rf Library .git .gitignore bin/brew README.md share/man/man1/brew
rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/Homebrew

## And reinstall Homebrew
# See first comment!

EDIT: I now give hints about this issue related to an old Mac OS X in the .rb
I think it's up to the user to chown his target dir (which can be anywhere) and to let himself be part of group:staff… that's why there're only hints in the .rb.
