Re: Print to file (PDF? Pict?) for Mini vMac?

Hmm... seemed like a good idea, so I installed from System Additions disk (6.0.8). But it's behaving the same way as Print2Pict 1.x: Chooser lets me select the printer, but various applications (Photoshop 1.0, SuperPaint, MacWrite 4.6) will not let me do Page Setup or Print, saying "There is no...

Print to file (PDF? Pict?) for Mini vMac?

Under System 6.0.8 / Mini vMac, I ought to be able to print to some kind of file, even though without networking cant' print to an actual printer. I think Adobe Acrobat's PDFWriter came along in the post-Sys6 world, and likewise the freeware Print to PDF, but wasn't Print2Pict available back in Syst...

Re: Sheep_net, X11 version of BasiliskII, on MacOS: How?Wher

if you have installed additional software in BasiliskII that installs files in the System Folder OK, I feel rather foolish. You'd think I'd spend enough time running System 7 natively back in the day to remember the usefulness and necessity of futzing with extensions and control panels. The virtual...

Re: Sheep_net, X11 version of BasiliskII, on MacOS: How?Wher

The Aqua / MacOS-native port of Basilisk (Basilisk II 1.0, Mac OS X port 19, downloaded from here ), 99% of the time, launches, shows smiling Mac, the blue MacOS screen, march of icons as extensions and control panels load, Desktop background loads, then *spoop*, window closes, Basilisk crashes, and...

Sheep_net, X11 version of BasiliskII, on MacOS: How?Where?

I've got the X11 version of Basilisk running within the MacOS X (10.6.8) environment. (I've run the Aqua-GUI version but it crashes if you so much as look at it sideways and when it does it eats the virtual hard drive until I mount it in the X11 version while booting from a different startup disk). ...

Re: PearPC for OSX available

That worked sort of

It is now executing the binary and I get the next window, the one in which I confirm which drive to boot from.

It doesn't accept keystrokes though :(

I need to enter a 1 to boot from the virtual hard drive.

Virtual machines (tnat create a different OS environment but on the same native processor as the environment running it) should not impose much of a speed hit even when nested. True emulators do .

Didn't work with AirPort either. I had the idea of turning on Internet Sharing (OSX Sharing PrefsPane), that also made no difference. The MacOS 8.6 environment is a diskimage originally made from a fully functional bootable OS 8.6 volume on my 'WallStreet' PowerBook. It definitely had no networking ...

I will experiment with AirPort Express when I get home. It lets multiple computers connect wirelessly and get IP addresses. See if SheepShaver likes that better.

Well, must just be a Shiira glitch.

Odd one, though. And only for this site. (I should try to find another phpBB2-powered site and see if I get the same behavior. Most of the boards I frequent are vBulletin)
