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

Hi I just made a page for testing PowerPC instructions in QEMU using a program called Risu. The page is a step by step set of directions and other information that testers should find interesting. If someone could try it out and let me know what they think I would be greatful. Thanks! https://wiki.q...

Re: QEMU PowerPC emulation is S L O W

No time on my part to do this, but I do have something else we should keep in mind: ARM emulation is likely to become a bigger thing in the future, with people using qemu on chromebooks, tablets, and possibly even phones. There's also the possibility that Apple will move to their own ARM-based chip...

Re: QEMU PowerPC emulation is S L O W

Emulation is a slow business. With an efficiency of about 10% we can't expect too much speed. I did come up with a theory on how to increase qemu-system-ppc's speed on x86 hardware. Right now PowerPC instructions are translated to Tiny Code Generator (TCG), then to the host instruction set. The host...

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

It's a great idea. It would be very helpful for people who want to build applications that support older versions of Mac OS X.

I had a game that ran too quickly in QEMU. To fix this problem I simply set the speed to 50% from the Speed menu.

Re: Qemu package and guide for OSX available

Does this method work for OS 9 too by chance (with sungem)? The difference makes sense to me because of how SLiRP works; some of the interfaces are only exposed in one direction. Generally any broadcast info from the host can be made available to the guest, but the guest can't necessarily see anyth...

Ok, I don't understand it but it was too interesting to not report. Sharing can be done without using the port forwarding feature.
