Re: Sheepshaver OS preference

I'm not sure what you mean exactly, but if you're thinking there's a compatibility problem with the specific Mac software you're trying to use, and you can manage running SheepShaver on Linux in a VM, you should give it a go, even just to figure out if the issue is specific to one platform.

Re: SheepShaver won't start on linux - 'Structure needs clea

I recently ran into this 'Structure needs cleaning' error while testing SheepShaver in Arch; after the first time it happened, SheepShaver would immediately fail on boot. I eventually figured out by the process of elimination that the problem was on the extfs volume ("Unix" drive). I delet...

Re: Stuff It Expander not working on Basilisk II

If you're using an old Windows version, and you use the 'My Computer'/'This PC' feature to get SIT files in, make sure to move them to the Mac drive first before trying to expand. The external filesystem is not super compatible with Mac software, and the problem used to be much worse in those old ve...

Re: "Some documents could not be opened." Problem

I see the game is supplied on some sites in the form of a disk image with the game program inside of it. If this is the one you're using, then to open a saved game by double clicking on it, you'll need to have the disk image open first so that Mac OS can find the program. As for the Open option bein...

SheepShaver Windows + JIT + Newworld + Mac OS 9

I'm chasing a crash on boot of SheepShaver on Windows in JIT mode with Mac OS 9 and Newworld ROMs, and I've figured out goes all the way back to Jul 16, 2006 (git revision e07e2196). Given that this crash has been around for so long, I'm curious: is there some combination of SheepShaver settings or ...

Re: Build SheepShaver for Windows?

I realized since that there are other packages you need on a fresh install of MSYS2 from the installer; GTK2 and SDL2 are just the packages I had to install on the MSYS2 in Appveyor's build image which has a bunch of things preinstalled. Unfortunately I don't have a detailed list as there are other ...

Re: Build SheepShaver for Windows?

But if you want to try getting rid of the posix_emu.h change in my branch to see if it fixes the problem on whatever you're building on, just edit posix_emu.h and remove the lines int spare1 and so on from struct my_stat.

Re: Build SheepShaver for Windows?

I should mention what I'm doing to build that branch in MSYS2: 1. Use the MSYS2 32-bit installer (msys2-i686-*) from msys2.org 2. Run an "MSYS2 MinGW 32-bit" shell from the start menu icon 3. Install MSYS2's packaged GTK 2 and SDL 2: pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-gtk2 mingw-w64-i686-SDL2 The re...

Re: Build SheepShaver for Windows?

That sheepshaver_mingw32_wip branch is based on the master branch in kanjitalk755's repo. I've basically been accumulating changes in that branch in the course of getting things building on my Windows machine. I don't know the details of kanjitalk755's windows build environment other than what's in ...

Re: I need SheepShaver debug build

I'm putting my work on GitHub: https://github.com/rakslice/macemu/tree/windows_build_script I've hit a wall with respect to the JIT: - the code produced by my dyngen build has serious problems -- the functions it generates sometimes have the wrong parameter lists; to get past this I'm using the preb...

Re: I need SheepShaver debug build

Yeah, it was probably a calling convention issue, as specifying __thiscall in the function pointer type made the problem go away. I'll stick to the current code and move on to building with the JIT enabled.

Re: I need SheepShaver debug build

I'm trying to get the current SheepShaver code (perhaps with whatever GCC > 4 work has been done in other forks) building on Windows with a current GCC at the moment, and am interested in this and other efforts to do the same. I picked mingw32 (with gcc 5.3.0) and building without JIT or GUI for a s...

Is there someone I should forward the patch to to get it into CVS?

Regarding CD support, does anyone know what the rationale was for having a separate driver in the first place?

Can it not still be done from within the application itself, e.g.: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/138434?

Windows tap support needs freshening; here's a patch.

Here's a couple of simple changes to the SheepShaver/Basilisk Windows tap support. One is to let enough broadcast and multicast packets though tap so that you can use AppleTalk (EtherTalk) and DHCP. The other one adds detection of newer tap devices, like those supported by OpenVPN 2.2 , to the GUI. ...
