Remove complete Intel code?

Does anyone know a method how to remove the Intel code from ALL system components of OS X? I need this for my Mac Mini G4 and my Powerbook.

Apps like XSlimmer only trim Applications, not the system components. I read somewhere from a terminal command how to remove code from UB files, but I haven't found it anymore.

Theoretically there is no need for Intel code at all on a PPC machine - there is no way to execute it in any case. If only slimming the standard apps of Leopard will save nearly 1 GB, slimming the whole system could save a lot more.

2 Opteron systems: OSx86 10.5.8, Andy's 9.8.0 kernel, Asus A8N-SLI Premium, Opteron 185 o'clocked @ 2 x 2,95 GHz (2nd system 2.6 GHz), ATI Radeon HD2600XT 256MB Dual-Monitor 2x HP L2035, 4 GB RAM, Griffin FireWave as main audio device, Marvell + nForce LAN, Asus U3S6 USB3/SATA6 card, 5,5 TB harddisk, Firewire 800 card, Apple Remote + eHome IR receiver, 2x Wacom serial graphics tablet, Canon Pixma iP4700, Logitech Internet Navigator wireless keyboard/mouse combination.

My Audio stuff: M-Audio Transit USB (default audio), M-Audio ProFire 610, M-Audio ProFire Lightbridge (34 channels) using Creamware A16 ADAT converter MIDI: M-Audio Midiman 4x MIDI interface Behringer Audio Mixers: Xenyx 1002, Xenyx 1002FX, Xenyx 1202FX, Eurorack UB1002FX, Eurorack MX1804FX, Eurorack MX262A FX devices: Lexicon MPX100 DSP, Behringer DSP-1000 Virtualizer, Behringer MiniFEX 800 DSP, Behringer Multicom Pro MDX4400 compressor RETRO: MSSIAH midi/sequencer/synthesizer cardridge for the C64 (Dual-SID), Steinberg M.S.I. MIDI Interface for C64

Maybe "ditto --arch ppc" is what you're looking for.

naquaada, how are you doing bro? hope everything is great.

What about installations for PPC only, like 10.4 for PowerPC. I am not sure about Leopard but Tiger CDs for PPC (at least i think so) are without Intel code.

I'm NOT sure if this way works for you
In my case I used CleanMyMac app and it clean up all PPC code
Perhaps you can use this app to remove all Intel code
