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

I never got the 64 bit build to work. I use: ./configure --cross-prefix=i686-w64-mingw32- --target-list="ppc-softmmu ppc64-softmmu" But this gave me a whole list of errors (on the dgibson 2-7pre branch) such as this: hw/misc/macio/mac_dbdma.c: In function 'dbdma_cmdptr_load': hw/misc/maci...

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

Anyone tried to use Windows as host? I tried the latest sources from both official QEMU git and the one by David Gibson, and cross-compiled it for Windows x64 under Fedora 24, used the patched OpenBIOS image from Cat_7's package, however I still cannot boot the installer, neither with 9.2 or 9.2.2....

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

Hi, Yes, I read up on the progress ;-) I built from the dgibson 2.7 pre branch and applied your line-feed patch to latest openbios from github (which still builds nicely in OSX). This allowed booting unaltered Mac OS 9.1 and 9.2 install CDs, install the OS and boot the resulting hard disks. This su...

Hi, An OSX build of Qemu pre 2.7 with patched OpenBios is now able to boot unaltered 9.1 and 9.2 images. 9.0 still seems to be a no-no ;-) Pick up the download in the forum http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=8848 Best, Cat_7 Which branch did you build from? git master is miss...

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

Friday teaser alert: the latest QEMU git master can now boot my MacOS 9.2.1 ISO! The random crashes turned out to be caused by not invalidating the macio DMA memory, which mean that stale code in QEMU's softtlb instruction cache could be executed by accident. It seems that changing the the default m...

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

mouse jerking only happens when using GTK output under Windows. It's a bug of qemu windows port itself. Try SDL output instead, just add "-sdl". Has anyone reported this upstream on QEMU's launchpad bug tracker? As I don't use Windows here and I don't see the issue locally, there's nothin...

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

Using 64-bit Windows 10, I can now boot up Mac OS 9.2.1. However, mouse control is incredibly erratic. You have to carefully and manually align the guest mouse with the host mouse, as the host mouse and guest mouse do not match up. It seems like it doesn't recognize the host mouse's position in com...

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

The OpenGL stuff is really graphics card related. Since QEMU isn't likely to support graphics card acceleration in the near future, it's probably best to stock up on all the vintage computer graphics development stuff we can find. That post above involved deleting the preferences files made for OS ...

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

FWIW if people have time to spare, one thing that would really help is to try and isolate and debug the ADB mouse problems that people have been experiencing.

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

@Cat_7: Brilliant, thanks for testing - I'll see if I can get this upstream.

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

First of all the git commits you are referencing here are really old.

I think it should still work fine, although it's not a setup that I run regularly here since I'm pretty much always working at the cutting edge with QEMU. libvirt mainly does 2 things: firstly it allows you to build a machine configuration, i.e. specify the number and type of drives, network cards e...

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

Hmm... it says it depends on libvirtd, which requires a hypervisor. Doesn't KVM usually perform this task on Linux? The functionality is baked in to the kernel, and isn't transferrable to OS X. QEMU doesn't provide a hypervisor AFAIK, just the emulation. I ran into this problem trying to virtualize...

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

So it wants an /rtas device in the BIOS. I wonder if these are actually fully implemented in MOL/PearPC or whether the presence of just the relevant properties is enough.

BTW is this on g3beige/mac99 or both? Just wondering there are differences between machines.
