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

Don't get me wrong, the progress is simply amazing on Qemu, but the jumpy mouse is driving me INSANE... It took what felt like an hour to open a terminal in OS X Server 1.2 ... As for the bluebox looking crazy it'll be the screen depth, much like the boot logo... Add the resolution / depth flags, an...

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

I can see the boot animation playing a couple of seconds, before it stalls. QEMU is still running fine, but boot does not progress beyond this point (I left it open for 20 minutes just to check). For the record, I tried booting it in single-user mode after this, but it stalls at the same point. Tha...

Re: is system 7.5.5 better than mac os 8.0?

I found networking in 8 to be more robust than 7, but for anything that plays weird games with the OS, stick with something basic and low. At least in the age of virtualization, having a separate profile per app is a thing.

10.2 and 10.6 were the greats of OS X. So much meh right now.

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

Error -13? That usually only shows up when the extensions are disabled or if the color manager can't allocate memory to the palette. I'm going to try booting Mac OS 9 in 256 color mode, because it's possible there are issues allocating the color lookup tables/palettes and switching between resoluti...

I'm curious if anyone has used HFVExplorer to manually move across files to the guest hard drive, particularly for programs like Stuff-It Expander.

Good thought. I did that something similar some time ago and posted the result on Macintoshgarden. Did you remove A-Rose from the Extensions folder?

Re: How to install 8.1 from ISO file (OSX 10.6.8)

I found that many 'iso' images out there aren't bootable, but have the files on them. It's a real pita.

This is why I took that System 7.5.3 on Apple's site, and converted it to a bootable ISO

Maybe it'll help?

Ugh that doesn't do much :( In the file with the VOSF setting there should be a CFLAGS line... you'd need to do a make clean/make but try something like this: -O0 -g in place of -O whatever it could be. -O0 turns off optimizations, and -g includes debug symbols, so maybe GCC is being too aggressive....
