Help concerning: pd_linux files

There are a number of patches out there that have externals that use the extension"pd_linux". Now whenever I try to open such a patch in Pure Data these externals don’t work. Is there a way to make these externals open on MacOS?

.pd_linux means they have been compiled for linux.
you will need to find or build mac versions, these will have the extension .pd_darwain

Thanks for the info!

pd_linux could be 32 but or 64 bit as well
pd_darwin = mac0s
x.dll = windows
