Re: BasiliskII for iOS

Re: Willing to share precompiled BasiliskII for Rasp Pi 3B+?

This moving of a disk image should be unneeded -- you just need to create a file (any file) of the size you want to use, add it to the list of images, and let the Finder format it for you when it loads. I usually do so with dd, but you can use a copy of an existing file of the size you want, or just...

Re: Linux installation fails because of NVRAM

You'll have to provide a lot more information... AQEMU is just a front end GUI. What version of QEMU are you running with it? Also, QEMU doesn't properly emulate the NVRAM; there's an error that comes up when booting OS X too. As long as you populate OpenBIOS correctly, it shouldn't matter; but you'...

Re: How to display Chinese correctly on UNIX disk when Chinese MacOSX 10.9 runs sheepshaver Chinese version macos9.0?

I've got a suggestion for kanjitalk755...

This code should be a simple copy/paste away from working in SheepShaver/BII as wel...

Trying to set this up with ports. Looks like bootstrap can't find db62, and starts looking at db61 instead. Since db61 doesn't exist in MacPorts, I've installed db60 to meet this dependency. However, it appears BDB only creates /usr/include/db.h via ports, and the bootstrap is looking for /usr/inclu...

Yeah; there's a seperate config flag; I can't remember what it is for Raspbian. But you have to set the target to SDL2 instead of X11 or SDL.

If the original install was using OS X 10.5, you'd probably have better luck with a clean install that targets the virtual G4 machine, and then use the Migration Assistant (in the Utilities folder) to migrate all your software and preferences from the (mounted) G5 image. Alternatively, you could use...

And having said that, the 2.7 support for OS 9 was a wee bit spotty. 2.8 was when we saw pretty solid support. It's all documented in our GSOC mega thread on here :) To get it running on Snow Leopard, I'd recommend installing MacPorts, which can install backports, including the entire LLVM toolchain...

Following up on my comment about your attempts to mount the VMDK in PearPC... qemu should be able to mount the image as it recognizes vmdk files. However, qemu-system-ppc emulates a G4 Mac, not a G5.

You're going to have to use a conversion tool to convert the VMDK into a file format PearPC can understand -- a raw disk image without headers. qemu-img can do this.
