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

I had a quick poke around with 10.4.11 and it still has the RTL8139 driver so the fact it works in 10.4 but not 10.4.11 in QEMU could mean 2 things 1 the 10.4 kext has a device id listed that 10.4.11 does not have that matches QEMUs networking card (ill have to dig out a 10.4 kext to check) or somet...

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

the AppleMacRISCPCI bad range thing happens on all versions of OS X when running in QEMU when doing mac99 emulation. but what happens when I try to boot 10.0 or 10.1 is that it will boot up "fine" ie i can boot into single user mode no problem etc but when it goes to load the GUI/Window server it ha...

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

with regards to 10.0/10.1 not booting I have played around with this a lot and from what i can tell it locks up trying to load the window server I don't get a Kernel panic as such but it will just stop booting (in verbose mode it will load through everything but the moment it gets to the window serv...

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

was doing some more testing and even with me specifying a different index I still get stuck at the Read/Write error so this particular thing seems like a CD ROM bug. this is just things i have observed while playing with QEMU and OS X etc heh. if you dont Mind me asking but are you a developer for Q...

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

@mcayland I played around with it a bit with the stuff you Suggested and indeed faking it does let OS X see the cd rom and find root device but soon after it will give a Read/write error/ata device blocking the bus error and stop booting but it does find the CDROM (I tried 2 versions of tiger and on...

@Mcayland Regarding OS9. I could boot the OS9 image i was playing with at the time fine in QEMU on my OS X machine but if I took the openBIOS rom moved it to my linux PowerPC mac and fired up QEMU with KVM in the mix to virtualize rather then emulate the PowerPC CPU it would fail to load the OS9 rom...

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

Just figured id drop by again and report some of my findings... first off the bat is the OS9 openBIOS does not boot OS9 when you have QEMU PPC setup as a KVM VM on a real PowerPC machine (in my case a 970 PowerMac 7,3) secondly Mac99 now boots OS X (YAY) (OS X can now find the ATA HDD although -cdro...

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

Just going to point out that Leopard does not require the kernel patching to boot (Just remove the apple intel power management kext) and that Tiger only needs the kernel patch on haswell (the X3220 Xeon is based off the Core 2 quad Q6600) http://landonf.org/2013/12/index.html (check this out for ke...
