Can LS9 work on a G5?
yes it can. It isn't officially supported by Apple, but it is possible.
is anyone or has anyone tried it yet?
My copy will arrive on Tuesday and will give this a run. I have both types of systems to compare results, in case a partial install is possible on G5s.
Apple hasn't crippled Logic9 so it won't work on a G5, and it's still a Universal Binary (this means: works on Intel and PPC chips). It just isn't supported or recommended. Use at your own risk. Wear safety goggles and have a fire extinguisher handy! Sign your organ donor card! Finish your bucket list!
Yes, that guy installs and launches Logic Pro 9 on a dual G5:
cool so far. Let see how it works once you start working in it.
In case an install on a g5 does indeed work, but performance is sucktacular...is it possible to have L8 and L9 coexist on the same machine, or is it either/or? Anyone found out yet?
Yes, it is possible. Here I have Logic 7, 8 and 9 installed on two intel macs.
I finally got to install mine on my Macbook Pro. I then proceeded to 'research' the installer requirements and nowhere I saw or detected an 'Intel' only path. This, in addition to all components being Universal binaries, clears the prolonging G5 systems a while longer.
It's time to start saving though... the writing is on the wall.
