Re: Arm faster for PPC emulation.

I just noticed... there's no test result for the iOS floating point benchmark. This might be worth investigating, as it will affect audio output. Also: How does UTM work? The majority of the work is done by qemu. Because iOS devices lack hardware virtualization support, we cannot use the KVM accele...

Re: Help me choose the best emulator

You don't really have any easy options. SCSI to USB is expensive, seem some Ebay seller has cornered the market on these, and the 50pin is not quite the same as the 50pin on the 7100's HD, so you'd also need and adapter and a way to power the drive. Also, who knows what driver issues you'd have with...

Re: The Quadra 800 coming to Qemu

Just out of curiosity, could the M68kLinux booter be adapted to bootstrap the NetBSD kernel? Apologies if there's an obvious reason why not and I'm just too n00b to know it. It would require a major overhaul of the boot loader, as one is made for a Linux kernel and one is made for a BSD kernel. At ...

Re: Having a hard time with Mac OS 9.0.4

What works with 9.0.4 that doesn't work with 9.2.x? I always found 9.0/9.0.4/9.1 highly unstable even on supported Mac's. 9.2.x was far more stable, even on unsupported Mac's. So, if you have software that won't work, or won't work as well then it maybe worthwhile to run 9.0/9.0.4/9.1 vs. 9.2.x, if ...

Also there is no point in loading the Rage128.rom, the disk based 'NDRV' is all you need, and loading the FCode ROM doesn't give you any more functionality. T...

You can't boot OS 9 with a g3beige target in Qemu.

You need to use the mac99 machine model to boot OS 9, I.E.

For a network printer hooked to a macOS machine's network, you should be able to turn on print sharing, and share it with Mac OS 9, even if it doesn't have OS 9 drivers.

I've managed to get basic VGA passthough of a Rage 128 PCI card working with Qemu-system-ppc. It's very buggy, and I've only managed to boot Tiger.

Re: How fast is QEMU compared to a “Quad” Power Macintosh G5

Qemu-system-ppc can only take advantage of one core/thread, to complicate matters, modern OS's like the macOS and Linux load level even a single core process to all available cores/threads.

So it's unclear if we can even take full advantage of single core turbo boost on systems where it is available.
