Re: Using QEMU to explore the Mac OS Nanokernel

So with broadening hardware support, do you mean something like creating more drivers for OS 9? Such as sound drivers, maybe USB 3 drivers?

Re: Using QEMU to explore the Mac OS Nanokernel

Just curious, what hardware are you aiming at having some type of support?

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

Thank you, everyone, for your input and your replies to my "Average Joe" questions. Though I am 30 now, back in 1998 and 1999 I was a student in a very special class (you had to sign up very early because the seats filled up FAST), where the teacher taught, amongst other things, computer art and com...

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

Another "Average Joe" question: When all the kinks are worked out, when it's finally "Mission Accomplished," (as far as getting 9.2.2 fully loaded on QEMU) would I be able to clone my OS 9.2.2 partition on my older Mac, convert the cloned partition image to a virtual hard drive file, and have QEMU r...

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

Just curious, is it finally safe for an average Joe such as myself to give this a spin? Or are there still more bugs to be fixed and more development on the way? I mostly am interested in using a QEMU emulation of OS 9.2.2 on an OS X 10.11 environment.

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

Watching the updates on this forum. It's getting pretty cool!

I was just wondering, is audio playback an issue?

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

Funny, I was just reading a thread at another Mac website, where they were talking about doing their own modifications to Mac OS 9, some idea for a "community upgrade" to 9.3, D-I-Y style. The thread is very long and hasn't had a new poster on it since December 9th, 2015, but along the way, they dis...

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

How did you get all that stuff to work? I ask because I thought they were still trying to fix a lot of things.

Anyway, I have OS 10.11, so tomorrow I'll test out the download you've posted.

If QEMU can do this by August, I will be so very happy!

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

Good news!

This year's (2015) GSOC has a nice little approved project, specifically for OS 9.

Re: Some improvements for SheepShaver

UbuntuXP, has anything further come from your effort to compile the MMU? I am on my 10.6.8 machine. If all that's needed is to compile the code on this type of OS, point me in the direction of a suitable compiler, and give me a web address to upload the results. I'm not a programmer, but I'm dying t...
