macOS Sierra public beta 6 -> SheepShaver

Good news. I Installed macOS Sierra public beta 6 on an early 2009 iMac (*) and it seems that SheepShaver runs fine without any issues yet in 32bit mode (64bit mode isn't working). So unless something unexpectedly changes in the final release of macOS Sierra we can still use SheepShaver on the lates...

Re: OS X El Capitan (10.11) public beta 1

Based on your current setup, I'm tempted to suggest putting this off until things actually break, Seems to me a very good advice for now. Things run in OSX 10.11 (El Capitan) and may still run in OSX 10.12. Apple will support 10.11 until 10.13 is released. That will give us at least two years respi...

> what I'm really suggesting is running OS X 10.6 inside VirtualBox, and run SheepShaver/9.0.4 inside that. This way, the only thing that needs to keep support going is VirtualBox Am I right in thinking with VirtualBox it is also possible to use OSX 10.4 (Tiger) skip Sheepshaver and use the build i...

OS X El Capitan (10.11) public beta 1

Installed OS X El Capitan (10.11) public beta 1 (plus the additional beta update to solve 32bit issues with some apps) on an external HD.

Re: SheepShaver issues with OSX Yosemite Beta

Hello Ronald and Cat_7,

I solved the issues by rebuild LaunchServices.
After this SheepShaver.sheepvm runs fine with latest build 2.4 (01-02-2014) in 32 bit mode :-)

I have a couple of issues with OSX Yosemite Beta. When I try to launch SheepShaver.sheepvm with SheepShaver 2.4 (2014-02-01) inside the bundle the app refuses to start up. I can however launch an older version, SheepShaver 2.3 (2009-10-25) outside the bundle and then all works fine (SheepShaver then...

Re: Error message with SheepShaver and OSX 10.9 Mavericks

UPDATE:

Issue is solved.
I used the diagnostic tool OnyX (version 2.8.1 for Mavericks) and run all default options as set in the Automation section.
After the cleaning and rebuilding of stuff and a computer reboot all is now fine and SheepShaver runs as before without error messages :-)

Re: Error message with SheepShaver and OSX 10.9 Mavericks

It sounds like some of the metadata in the SheepVM bundle itself has been corrupted; possibly it hadn't all been written back to the drive prior to ejecting. Your best bet is probably to build a new SheepVM and move the disk image over to the new one. Thanks for your suggestion, it was one of the t...

Some additional info:

Each time after a unexpected quit a file "PPC.log" is created in the parent forlder of the app.
The log file is empty and when it is deleted it is build again after next quiting of the app.

Because I only need to run SheepShaver for a single Classic app (HyperCard) I think there is no benefitt for me to run multiple VM's (at least for know).
