Thanks for the info.  Well, that would put my G4 iBook on the "should work"
low end of processor speed, in this case 933MHz . . . RAM of something in
the 600MB.  My iMac 800 has once again KP'd out of service . . . that has 1
GB RAM, but no way to test anything.  I'll have to wait until an iso is
available, not enough skilz to compile a system from "scratch" and test . .
. but, it's looking like the AmigaOne guys will have to pick up the hammer
on testing LXQT for PPC . . . .
