Hi, please test the following binary: <http://www.gibix.net/projects/sheepshaver/files/SheepShaver-2.3-0.20060514.1.zip> I changed the memory layout so that we could now allocate up to 1 GB of memory. The binary is also built with gcc3.4 which somewhat brings some more stability vs. the previous bui...

Hi, SheepShaver now works with JIT.

Not yet, Basilisk II now works with JIT. SheepShaver works without JIT, I know how to fix it but I have yet to determine whether it's not compiler bug instead.

Then, I will upload test binaries when it's ready.

Re: Can SheepShaver run on an OSX x86 machine?

Has anyone had more luck? The difficulty is to have the hardware. As Japan has every new technology out there before the rest of the world (France in particular), Toshi got his iMac and granted me an access to his machine. I could build Basilisk II and SheepShaver as native OSX/intel applications +...

I have fixed the compile problems and run-time regression introduced earlier. It works now. Still missing prior to releasing a new snapshot: NAT/Router support, GTK GUI.

Have you updated the SheepShaver copies/links to newer Basilisk II common sources? Please also regenerate your configure script. IIRC, SheepShaver/Windows now uses the NAT/Router from B2 so you don't actually need to compile the "dummy" ethernet support. I will try to make a new SheepShaver release ...

Strange, I am testing in 64-bit mode by default. I will check. gb : I think that FC4 uses gcc 4.0. Have you done any work with that compiler in 64 bits? SheepShaver builds fine with gcc 4.0.1. It's just that I forgot to commit a file, simply cvs update -d in the Basilisk II tree, at least the Unix/...

There are ways to workaround that but SheepShaver crashes later during extensions load because the Native Resource Manager is not installed. The 68k selectors were still available in their lowmem locations rather than the expected ppc variants... So, only MacOS 9.0.4 at most is supported at this time.

SheepShaver performance is expected to be the same accross different OSes on the same system (except for Windows).

Besides, if Apple is willing to disclose some implementation details of the obsolete MacOS Classic NanoKernel, then some stuff can be made faster and more compatible.

I don't see where this rumor could come from either. Nowadays, Intel tends to providing JITs in software form, e.g. IA-32 EL to replace the aging and suboptimal ia32 emulator in ia64 chips. That guy probably confused the Intel's VMX extension for x86 virtualization, which is different from what IBM ...

This doesn't make sense. Do you mean Apple would start using CPUs they have been bashing for years in their pseudo-benchmarks? I don't think so.

Instead, the most probable thing is that they would be using Intel Xscale (ARM) processors for some new PDA?

This one is normally fixed (2004/12/18 in CVS), it was an mcrxr instruction.

It depends on how well it's implemented. In QEMU, the slow down factor from MMU emulation is around 2 vs. no-MMU emulation IIRC.

Sorry, I don't know if the floppy drive works anywhere since I don't have any. ;-) My guess is no because there may be bits missing in sys_windows.cpp. Besides, I think this may work well only with a PowerMac PCI ROM since it contains lots of well known 68k code.
