Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

I made documentation for the Macintosh emulator in QEMU here: http://wiki.qemu.org/PowerPC It does have some of your suggestions already in it. Let me know what you think of it. I agree with adespoton: it is an excellent start. And I also agree it might be slightly outdated. A public spreadsheet wo...

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

This topic is growing to insane proportions. I am well lost in which combinations of arguments can be used with which OS version and which results are yielded. Is there a way we can document all the combinations with short result descriptions? Imagine a table, maybe a spreadsheet. Example: Using 'qe...

Re: Sheepshaver and El Capitan ...

SheepShaver cannot be compiled on 10.11, but my latest build (February 2014) runs fine on OSX 10.11, when the application is set to run in 32-bit mode. Hey Ronald, Not a problem, I have two Snow Leopard and a Mountain Lion machine available, XCode 3.2.1 running in one of them. I am just wondering i...

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

Hey celebi23. Unfortunately I had no success with the manual compilation. It always stops at some point. I suppose most of the issues I came accross are due to the fact that my gcc would default to XCode's version instead of using Homebrew's 4.8. Whenever I tried to force 4.8 I had other issues abou...

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

Gentlemen, I managed to install QEMU 2.5 in my Snow Leopard machine via Homebrew. I installed gcc 4.8 first, via homebrew as well and then Qemu. $ sudo xcode-select -switch /XCode3/ $ brew install gcc48 --cc=gcc-4.2 $ brew install qemu --cc=gcc-4.8 That should do the trick.

Red Star OS

I bumped on this yesterday: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-35188570 To summarise: North Korea has this OSX's copycat system called Red Star OS. They built it over a Linux system and tampered with the source code to make it way creepier. What strikes me is the similarity with OSX compared to any ...

Can we copy MacTCP from System 7 and try using on 9.2.2? If I remember correctly, the use of MacTCP and OT were mutually exclusive.

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

I am testing what is missing on my Snow Leopard machine to run QEMU. I found this nice 'otool' command that should do a similar job to Linux's 'ldd'. I thought it could be useful to other interested people, so I am dropping an example here. The command: $ otool -L ./qemu-system-ppc The output (this ...

Mmm GNUStep looks interesting. I saw similar aqua themes elsewhere, but they always look a bit off. Maybe fixing fonts would do the trick? I will try something along those lines.

Re: Qemu vs PearPC

And quite recently, QEMU is the only emulator capable of running Mac OS 9.2 in non-PPC architectures. It will probably allow us to use Classic, and I don't think PearPC will ever be able to do the same.

I like your wallpaper in the host system. =D

I understand Mac OS 9.2 is different from 9.0.4, but did anyone try to boot 9.0.4? Or maybe 8.6? Theoretically, would it work?

I'm just glad QEMU won't need ROM images.
