NVRAM

Now we all now currently with Qemu PPC emulation, one always gets the infamous "Unable to find NVRAM partition" message. Why preserve the NVRAM? Because it's required for such things as the RAM disk feature in the memory control panel. Correct me if I'm wrong. Per the wiki for the as-yet-u...

Re: MPW-GM ISO for Mini vMac 26, System 7

If you're referring to the final MPW GM build (circa 1999), then it mounts fine in Qemu.

Try copying the contents to a plain HFS (*not* HFS+) disk image and try mounting that in Mini vMac

Re: macOS GUI frontend for QEMU?

Yes, and it’s certainly still rather rough around the edges and incomplete: for example, VMs must be located in ~/Library/Containers/com.utmapp.UTM/Data/Documents (sandboxed app), and currently it is not possible to store them, for example, on an external drive (which is the ideal solution for thos...

Re: Standard, Extended, or DOS disk

Also, HFS (not HFS+) has a maximum total drive size of 2GB, at least on real hardware.

At least applies when using the 630 rom in Basilisk I presume (had a real Quadra 630 back in the day).

Tattletech claims it emulates a 68851 MMU, so I don't know why it would cause it to crash. Each time this happens, I have to reinstall System 7...

Splittig a hybrid image

There are several hybrid Mac/PC images on the garden, however Mini vMac can't read them because they're hybrid Mac/PC images.

Is there a utility to split the HFS partition from such image?

Toast 18 has no such feature, though it does correctly differentiate between hybrid and HFS-only images.

Of course, the next request then would be clock sync over the modem port :D Because then we've got MIDI.
Any update?

Has serial support been integrated?

Well it seems like it's an either/or situation. When the "Apple Audio Extension" is enabled, it causes an illegal instruction system bomb at startup and the terminal gets spammed with "Invalid file name" errors. Without the added parameters to get the shared folder, there's no il...
