Just wanted to share a possible solution to the Unix Folder not showing when SheepShaver 2.4. It appeared on OS10.9, clean installation, BUT in OS10.6.8
Downloaded 2.4 (THANK YOU Developers!!!), installed and used my OLD "OS8 and ROM" from SheepShaver 2.3. ALL files appeared except the UNIX Drive. EVEN THOUGH you see / in the UNIX ROOT browse box, YOU NEED TO REDIRECT it to your Hard Drive.
Problem of UNIX folder showing was resolved by doing the following:
Opened SheepShaver > preferences > browsed Unix Root > selected Macintosh HD under devices in my find> replaced the / with the same looking / chararcter > saved > control-opt-escape to force quit SheepShaver > reopened SheepShaver > message gave an "untitled drive" that needed to be format and formatting would delete all data > selected yes to format > and SUCCESS
, all data was there ALONG with the UNIX folder which access my entire 'hard drive. WOOPIE!!!!!!!
I have been using SheepShaver 2.3 for many many years.
Had a hard drive failure. Used Time Machine to reinstall my most current back up of OS10.6.8
However, it did not install SheepShaver 2.3 correctly. My SheepShaver GUI is not letting me set the correct path for SS 2.3, but then again, I am NOT a computer genius.... All I know that it took me countless hours about 10 years ago I spent about 50 hours researching emulation software and tracking down my ROM and OS8 etc.
GLAD SheepShaver 2.4 is now working and paths were set using 'preferences' and not the GUI.
You can play a "Shared" folder and placed into my SheepShaver folder > opened SheepShaver > preferences > browsed Unix Root > selected SheepShaver folder Shared > saved > control-opt-escape to force quit SheepShaver > opened SheepShaver > message gave an "untitled drive" that needed to be format and formatting would delete all data > (made a duplicate of my OS8 copy, just in case) > selected yes to format > and SUCCESS
, all data was there with the UNIX folder to the "shared" folder in the SheepShaver folder.
