Yes, but you need to press PAUSE to get into KDB. It looks like the keyboard of a MacBook has no PAUSE key. Maybe an external USB keyboard helps. (The internal keyboard of Macs is also connected via USB contrary to most PC laptops where it's still PS/2. So USB support in KDB is mandatory for a MacBook.) > However, AFAIK kdb support is only maintained for ia64, x86_64, and > i386 architectures. MacBook is Intel, not PPC .
