Why don't you give us some more info about the situation with the PC. I also hope you are not trying to run the windows executable on the mac. And finally why use a mac in the first place? Despite all that false advertising that apple tires to feed people they are inferior in ever possible way.

The powerMac 867 is a dual Processor computer, not Dual core (G4 right ?) I am running ProTools 6.9 on a Dual 2GHz G5 without any trouble (running 10.4) regardless of windows or mac, we need more specs than that. How much RAM do you have in that mac, what version of OS X are you running, and what problems are you having that aren't allowing you to use it. Also, what are the specs of the PC you were using to run it. Every bit of information you can give is helpful, and may lead to someone being able to get you up and running on one platform or the other.

Ok, Since you are using an M-Audio mixer I am guessing you are running the
M-Powered version of ProTools. Here is the problem, you are trying to run 7.1 in Leopard. 7.1 is not Leopard compatible. So, you have 3 options, reinstall your G4 with Tiger and run version 7.1, or downgrade leopard to 10.5.4 or 10.5.3 and upgrade protools to 7.4.2, or leave OS X where it is, and purchase ProTools 8.0. ProTools 8.0 requires 2GB of memory, so you are set there. Also important is the processor speed of your G4. The minimum requirement for all of these versions of ProTools is a single or Dual 1GHz processor. All of this information was gathered from the Digidesign website which is somewhat cumbersome to navigate, but the information is there.

Use the dropdown boxes on that page to select what you have or what you are going to and you should be able to find any and all compatibility information there.

Good luck! Let me know how it goes.
