Hi,

I have noticed that kgio hacker's guide states that

«We will NEVER directly support non-Free platforms under any circumstances»

Does Mac OS X fall into "NEVER directly support" category?

Thanks.

Yes, but it's likely to work since it's much like other *BSDs.

Eric,

It does work. Quite a few of Unicorn users run OS X. I just was evaluating
kgio as a standalone library and decided to ask.

Thanks for clarification.
