Re: Here's a challenge for you guys

I thought we don't help Hackintosh users, lol. I believe I've heard SheepShaver already having ROMs bundled together, but if you don't have one, ensure that you owned a Mac in the past (high chances you did...), and go grab one from the internet. It is not too hard to find. With the OS situation, sa...

Re: OS X Yosemite beta

Voted "I don't care" because I don't really use Mac OS X, and I didn't really do any research on it. The screenshot does look nice, though.

Re: Running Basilisk II on Linux without Xorg

Honestly it looked as though he edited the X11 startup files to start up Basilisk II instead of a display manager, when startx is run. That's what I thought when I saw that one second at the start of the video. *EDIT* Sorry for not actually contributing to the post. And it seems I misread a bit; Xor...

Re: Basilisk won't run, disk with blinking ?

Why would you try to open the StuffIt Expander application in SimpleText? It's an application. It should run by double-click. If it's giving that error, it means the OS thinks it's a file, and doesn't know how to open it (duh). That means the binary data that should come with the application wasn't ...

Re: Basilisk won't run, disk with blinking ?

Thank you its working now, everything is installed. However in order to get any programs I need stuffit expander right? The guide recommends using HFVExplorer to drag the Stuffit files to my install.hfv disk image, but that image doesn't show up on HFVExplorer. It says I can use Basilisk II GUI to ...

Re: My OS History Project...

...That's one hell of a monitor you have there. And a hell of a Mac to run all of that.

It would've been nice if you used floppies for the pre-PPC OSes, like how you used CDs for the PPC ones.

A walkthrough for this feat? ..Naaah, for me.

Re: What OS should I install on my iBook G3 Clamshell?

When I was on that spec of a machine, I dual booted into 9.2 and 10.2. I found that adding new memory really sped things up though, and after I did that, I removed 9.2 and just used classic. You really need at least 128 to do that. Yeah, I plan to upgrade the memory, but I can't do it anytime soon....
