Re: SheepShaver for Linux

I've compiled some new Linux builds of both SheepShaver and BasiliskII: https://github.com/vasi/macemu/releases/tag/2019-07-13 . Feel free to test them out, and maybe link them in the top post.

Re: SheepShaver and modern Linuxes

Try doing a 32-bit build. SLIRP tends to work fine in 32-bits.

You could also just build a 32-bit version, it should run fine in multilib (32-bit compat layer in Ubuntu).

Re: Crashing when trying to load webpages [Ubuntu 15.10/SS 2

The networking code in SheepShaver is not 64-bit clean, and can crash in a 64-bit environment. If you're running a 64-bit SheepShaver binary, try the 32-bit version instead.

Re: Classic Game in PearPC - Classic Environment

For many older games that had Windows versions, you'll have more luck emulating that than the Mac version. CrossOver/WineSkin/Cider generally do a very good job of this.

Re: Shoebill - a Macintosh II + A/UX emulator for OS X

You can install Xcode 3.2 on 10.9 (using some tricks), which allows you to build for 10.4-10.6. There are several guides for how to do this floating around, I think I used this one: http://lapcatsoftware.com/articles/xcode3onmountainlion.html . I recommend installing it in a custom prefix like /Xcod...

Yup! The guest OS doesn't even know what underlying block format the virtual disk uses: fixed size, sparse or VHD. Nothing you can do inside OS 9 will make a sparsebundle change into a fixed size disk.

Re: Idea: CHD support?

Ooops, I take it back, I think VHD does not actually support compression, just sparseness. *sigh* Qemu's qcow2 format would be great, but they still haven't released the library to allow access to it, although this was planned months ago.

Ok, so there are a couple of problems with this: MESS doesn't expose the CHD-handling functions via a library so that other programs can use it. And the CHD-related code is pretty strongly integrated within MESS, there's no easy way to extract it without also including several other bits of MESS. Wh...

Re: The mysteries of the PowerPC Internet Explorer and Netsc

Are you running SheepShaver in 64-bit mode? The slirp networking code is known to be buggy on 64-bit. It will sometimes work, but it's only a matter of luck. It's definitely on the list of things to fix.
