Re: Qemu package and guide for OSX available

Classic works within Tiger I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but, just in case, at least the latest experimental Qemu build (5.0, with screamer) for macOS can run Classic within its emulation of Mac OS X Tiger. The first time I tried this, a couple of years ago, with an earlier versio...

Qemu for ARM hosts

I've looked for information, but couldn't get a clear picture on how good Qemu might be in virtualizing or emulating non-ARM guest operating systems on Apple Silicon ARM. If VMware and Parallels do not enter the fray of Intel emulation under ARM, our only choice for running things like OS X Tiger, O...

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

Graphics acceleration?

I'm not sure I've understood some of the latest posts correctly. Has graphics acceleration been achieved on Qemu for OS X guests (like, say, Tiger)? If so, can Front Row run on such virtual machines? If it doesn't work yet, will that goal be achievable in the near future?

Re: Mac OS 9.2.2 Internet access

I still have to run some of the diagnostic steps you provided, but I've just run Mac OS 9.2.2 on Qemu for macOS without tap/tun and Software Update was able to tell me there were no updates for my "computer". The only surprise there was that it was actually able to verify that through its Internet c...

Re: Mac OS 9.2.2 Internet access

Time for troubleshooting: Open a terminal, enter "cd /dev" use "ls" to see whether the tap devices tap0 up to tap15 are present in the folder. If not, there is an issue with the installation of tuntaposx. I have no clear idea yet how to fix that. If they are there, continue. Many thanks for the det...

Best,

Yes, I did. Do the txt files require any particular permissions (such as belonging to root/wheel, et cetera? Should they have a "command" extension instead of "txt"?

Re: Mac OS 9.2.2 Internet access

To get tap networking going I did this: -I created a network bridge called bridge0 in the network preferences with my default network connection as member. -I installed tuntaposx Forgive my ignorance. I've already installed tuntapox, but, how exactly do I create the network bridge called bridge0? D...

Re: Mac OS 9.2.2 Internet access

For Software update I get "your software doesn't need updating" That's what I get in Mac OS 9.0.4 on SheepShaver, but not on Mac OS 9.2.2 on Qemu for macOS. Odd. Edit: It is unclear for me how one goes about using "tap networking" for a Qemu client. Is it necessary to create some configuration/obje...

Mac OS 9.2.2 Internet access

I am having an odd issue in OS 9.2.2 running on Qemu for macOS. Although I can use a web browser to navigate the Internet, other applications seem not to be able to access the Internet. For instance, when I want QuickTime 6 to access the Internet, I get an error identified as "-3162". The same thing...

Re: Current SheepShaver code, built for macOS

One observation and one question about your build. The observation is that it runs in 64-bit mode, which is excellent news. The question is whether it supports JIT.

In the first post of this thread several downloads of different builds of Qemu are available. I still get confused as to which download I should try.
