I believe the original poster was referring to some of Apple's experiments in the early 90s, where indeed there was some classic MacOS versions running on x86 hardware . The project was known as "Star Trek" , and apparently got pretty far before getting canned. The other possibility would ...

Alright, I've had some time to play. I have gotten both Basilisk II and SheepShaver to compile in Cygwin :) Basilisk II runs, in the sense that it produces graphics output. I could not get it to boot anything, it just sits at the grey startup screen, and only if I check "ignore illegal memory a...

The screenshots are Qemu running SheepShaver on plain old x86 gentoo (in windows). At the time the PowerPC emulation could only run a PREP PPC kernel from within linux.

Perhaps it may be possible some day, as Qemu's PowerPC port is developing nicely. Last I checked (a few weeks ago), PPC system emulation is just starting to take off, and can half boot OSX, and and half boot few PPC linux distros. I'd imagine if it can be made to boot a complete PPC linux distro, i...

What distribution of linux are you using? Some distros will put libs in differant places, beyond where the autogen script can find.

Cherry OS is completely based on the PearPC code. In the demo video for Cherry OS, there a window that when Cherry is starting, flashes some red and yellow text. After trying to hit pause on it a few times, I found out that the text is the same that comes up when booting PearPC: 2 bootable partitio...

I've seen this as well, read the manual. I also saw a few posts on it in another forum where one guy apparently had a beta running for his company or something. He claimed about 1ghz G4 speeds with an Athlon 64 3400, which to me suggests slighly faster than PearPC. Another forum suggested it might b...

SheepShaver has run-time depth switching, so you can change the resolution within the client OS, and it will resize the window accordingly. I think the prefs file only sets what resolutions the client OS is allowed to use, but doesn't actually make the change. I'm not sure about SDL on OSX, but as f...

Just did. Quits with "Could not complete your request because of a program error."

Sort of a strange thing happens after it closes... the help balloons are magically turned on. Every time I'll turn them off, run XPostFacto, it crashes, and suddenly the balloons are back on again.

Nothing can replace a genuine MMU. Until there's a better way to shoulder the load of emulating an MMU, things probably won't improve a whole bunch. Sure, there's things that can be optimized in graphics, sound, etc, making things appear faster. But in actual processing, there's really not a terribl...

it is a little hard for me to believe that a PPC emulator is working faster than a 68K one on a PC It's not running on a PC, it's running in OSX on a real mac.

Be careful with your acronyms. PPC actually refers to PowerPC, the architecture. It does not officially refer to PearPC, the program. That said, I've been playing with QEMU quite a bit lately, and with version .6 they have make incredble progress over previous versions (at least, in terms of PPC). I...

This was a random thought I just had. I was reading a bit into some things here about using the GPU as something of a co-processor. Would it be at all possible, no matter how difficult, to send off the MMU requests to the graphics card, provided it had a powerful enough GPU? Let the CPU deal with th...

You don't have to mount the CD in order for SheepShaver to read it. Just make sure in the SheepShaver GUI the "Disable CDROM Support" option is NOT checked, and "Boot From" is set to CDROM (not ANY). My CD's say that too when linux attempts to mount them, but it shouldn't bother ...

As far as I know, the QEMU project hasn't yet gotten a full powerpc OS to load. Last I heard they got the bootloader to run, but not much more than that. (If I'm mistaken, please correct me.) Once they do, I'd certainly look into this possibility. I've also seen that PearPC should be capable of runn...
