Re: Frequent crashes on boot and when launching apps

The first crash with Oxyd would probably not have happened if at that time "Ignore Illegal memory Accesses" was enabled in preferences. It was always better to have that option enabled, but with newer SheepShaver builds it is absolutely necessary. Not having it enabled may have not have b...

Re: Frequent crashes on boot and when launching apps

Now I am completely confused. I thought that the issue started after updating SheepShaver. Did the issue start after installing and trying Oxyd? Sorry, that's probably confusing. :) Yes, the problem started after I installed and tried to run Oxyd. I've been using SheepShaver for years without diffi...

Re: Frequent crashes on boot and when launching apps

- Do you remember which build you used before you updated? Prior to updating, I was using SheepShaver 2.3, and before that, SheepShaver 2.1. I've tried those versions with the current HD image and they won't run at all; they crash instantly on launch. - Did High Sierra updates convert your HD from ...

Re: Frequent crashes on boot and when launching apps

Making progress of a sort, I suppose. Decreasing RAM to 512 MB, then to 128 MB, then to 64 MB didn't help. Using the January 2020 release of SheepShaver didn't let Oxyd run, but it did react differently. With the later version of SheepShaver, trying to run Oxyd causes the emulator to freeze or crash...

Re: Frequent crashes on boot and when launching apps

I used the built-in SheepShaver preferences (and I've changed the preferences to only mount a specific folder, thanks!). With the changes, the application no longer crashes on me; instead, it simply freezes and has to be force-quit. There are several Mac Classic apps that will trigger this freeze wi...

Re: Frequent crashes on boot and when launching apps

Thanks for your reply. To answer your questions: 1. Yes, this is the latest build. (I've been using SheepShaver for about ten years, and keep it updated.) 2. This is an update install made by copying the August 2020 build over the existing app, but keeping the same preferences and hard disk file. 3....

Frequent crashes on boot and when launching apps

I just installed SheepShaver 2.5 on macOS High Sierra on a MacBook Pro (2016). I'm using System 9.0.4 on a 6GB virtual HDD (5.25GB free). I'm experiencing frequent crashes on boot; I often have to try to boot 2-3 times before it will finish. In addition, many apps cause an instant crash on launch. F...
