Unix/sys_unix.cpp
That was it! I can now create, format and use hardfiles > 4 GB and I can format and use the spare 10 GB partition on my hard drive.

Many thanks, gb!

Strange, I am testing in 64-bit mode by default. I will check.
gb : I think that FC4 uses gcc 4.0. Have you done any work with that compiler in 64 bits?

confirmed:

gcc version 4.0.0 20050519 ( Red Hat 4.0.0-8 )

On the FC3 32-bit system it is gcc 3.4.something.

More data on speed (or the lack thereof). Using Mozilla 1.2.1 I did an FTP download on the (3200+) 64-bit system, and got 4.4 kbps. Using the same Mac hardfile on the 32-bit system (which has a 1.2 GHz Via CPU) I measured 13 kbps. I'm out of time right now. Later I'll test with BasiliskII and see if...

Wow! That was easy! The slirp technique works great.

Thanks for the tip.

More info: but it is VERY slow, about 6 kilobits per second. I wonder why?

AHA!!!!

I copied everything over to another machine running 32-bit Fedora Core 3, and it can initialize a large (>4096 MB) partition!

So, it would seem that it is a problem with the 64-bit stuff.

You likely haven't updated the Basilisk II tree... I updated both the BasiliskII and SheepShaver trees. I didn't actually build the BasiliskII tree, are there bits over there that need to be built first? More info: I just deleted both trees, checked both out from CVS, and rebuilt them, BasiliskII f...

I followed the instructions, above, for the 2.6 kernel and 'tun'. In MacOS 9.0.4 I entered the following into the TCP/IP control panel: IP address : 172.20.40.2 Subnet mask: 255.255.248.0 Router address: 172.20.40.1 <my ISP's name servers> This lets me see pages I serve off my Linux box, when access...

I just deleted my old SheepShaver tree, checked out the latest (Jul 26) CVS, and built.

I am still unable to format a 6 GB hardfile, either Standard or Extended. 4 GB (4096 MB) and smaller work.

Regarding the Linux partition, I seem to be able to avoid mounting it by clearing the "Linux Root" field (which defaults to '/') in the first SheepShaver tab. I get no Linux volume on the Mac desktop. Norton Utilities still won't run, though, so it must be something else. Regarding the 4 G...

x86_64 Compile Options

For the last day or so I have been running with a SheepShaver image I compiled with more aggressive optimizations. I don't have any timing numbers for you, I'm not quite sure what I could use as a benchmark. In src/Unix/Makefile, for CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS I changed -O2 to -O3 -march=athlon64 -mtune=at...

More Info...

It appears that ANY hardfile larger than 4 GB fail to initialize, but any hardfile smaller than that initializes correctly. QUESTION: Does SheepShaver have an internal limit of 4 GB for a volume? Perhaps it uses unsigned 32-bit longs as file pointers? All my volumes seem to verify in Disk FIrst Aid....

HFS/HFS+ File Creation

I am running SheepShaver quite successfully, but am unable to initialize hardfiles or disk partitions the way I want. I am running out of two <4GB hardfiles that I initialized with 'hformat'. This creates an HFS volume. If I let MacOS 9.0.4 boot up and try to initialize a SheepShaver-created hardfil...
