I downloaded the BasiliskII and SheepShaver source code from CVS and am encountering problems with building SheepShaver. Originally, I tried to use the Xcode project, but I have Xcode 4 installed and it has many incompatibilities with the older project, even with the 10.4 and 10.5 SDKs installed.
Next, I tried to compile using the command line. Using Mac OS 10.6.6 and SDL-1.2.15, I followed the directions at http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/compiling_sheepshaver_basilisk
to compile the SDL source. At the line "./configure --disable-shared --prefix=`pwd`", I received an error that the path needed to be an absolute path, so I put it in the home directory with '~/pwd'. That worked, so I moved on to the SheepShaver source. Everything seemed to go correctly; however, the resulting SheepShaver app does not launch at all.
I'm not sure how much information I need to give about my system, so please let me know if there is something more that would help determine the problem. Thanks very much for any help!
