Macintosh.js

I did not find this mentioned here:
You Can Run Mac OS 8 on Your Mac, Linux or Windows Machine. And It’s Awesome…

From the README.md file on github:
This is Mac OS 8, running in an Electron app pretending to be a 1991 Macintosh Quadra. Yes, it's the full thing. I'm sorry.

Re: Help opening files in Basilisk

Oh I see, so at least when examining Mac files, I would need to hex edit the disk image itself to understand the file type? I can see the Disk Doubler signature when I do that. You should mount the disk image and check the file type with Creator Changer . You could also use ResEdit . Then I assume ...

Re: Help opening files in Basilisk

However, some old Mac file types just depend on the T&C in the Resource fork to do this. Yes, classic MacOS files (and therefore, the files in BasiliskII) depend on the type/creator. But it is neither in the data nor the resource fork of the file. It is stored on the disk. However, the binding ...

Re: Help opening files in Basilisk

Just an educational question - how do you know when you are dealing with a compressed file based on the information you might see in a hex editor? Is there another file signature to look for to show that it has been compressed? The file signature, i.e., the type and creator, is stored on the Macint...

Have you selected the correct keycodefile in ~/.basilisk_ii_prefs?

Do you have a correct X11 Server vendor string in your Basilisk II keycodefile?

I recommend you replace the currency sign ¤. It is #219 in the Mac font table.

Re: Installation from multiple disks?

Or try this:

Unmount the floppies.
Mount the disk images by double-clicking.
Start installation from the first disk.

Shortcut keys for dialog buttons

I think there is an old mac (7.x) extension that automatically added keyboard shortcuts to dialog/alert buttons (first letter). Does anyone remember the name?

How to remove Basilisk II main window title bar? (Linux)

I would like to remove the Basilisk II window title bar and borders. I searched the web and I think I found a proper function to do that, see: http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/2.18/GtkWindow.html#gtk-window-set-decorated But where should I add the function call? Somewhere in the main_unix.cpp file?

I did have JIT enabled as it provides a HUGE speed boost on my system. Back when I had Fedora 13, I benchmarked my "Mac" as being about the Spped of a Quadra 605 without JIT and being faster than any 68K Mac ever made with it... I had not run JIT enabled for a long time so I gave it a try...

Did you try my build? I have tried all your builds in this thread and they all give the error "bad ELF interpreter" (if I remember correctly). BTW, I thought autoconf (autogen.sh) is for developers only. The tester-user (like me) should only be required to do the ./configure; make drill.

I have never compiled with any of the linux distro you mention, but I would suggest you are missing some development packages, and perhaps you are using the wrong version of the automake/autoconf tools (ver. 1.9?)
