Re: Mac OS X 10.3 issues

Hi, and welcome, There is nothing wrong with your command line. Qemu is not fast when emulating OSX. There is no graphic acceleration so things are bound to be slow. The only thing you can do is lower the color depth or resolution, but that will not help much. To have sound support, you would need t...

Re: Installing COIV4.0.1+ on Sierra?

The rom was found, otherwise you would not have the blinking question mark. It is just that no bootable disk was found. My guess is that the 400Mb disk image is not the startup image. Can you move the COIHD.dmg to the top position? Perhaps you need to remove all disks and then add the COIHD.dmg as f...

Re: Install software from multiple disks

Hi,

I see it looks for "Installer-Disk 1', not "Disk 1". Some old installer are sensitive to the disk name, so perhaps renaming the disk will help.
All others will probably have similar issues.

Edit: OOPS.

Re: Icons Conversion

You need to make/install the fcode-utils and install a PPC cross compiler to build openbios. Manuals are somewhat scattered around: Use this for the fcode utils only: https://www.openbios.org/OpenBIOS#Building_OpenBIOS Then use this for the cross-compiler and path settings: https://www.openfirmware....
