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

Well,AFAIK systems >9.04 requre MMU and that's why they don't work unmodifyed in SShaver.Systems >8.5=<9.04 can work with both New or Old ROMs in SS.Probably for 9.04>it's the same--guess they won't work unmodifyed with Old ROMs(for the latter don't support MMU). As for playing with MacROMs,the guys...

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

Yes,I know that.I tried just to run 9.0 in qemu using this trick.The results depend on Mac Soft ROM(The best with G4Cube ROM) and something else... By the way,if you open Mac OS ROMs from 9.0 or 9.0.4 cds in hex,first you see is something like :"Compatible...PowerMac3,1...MacROM for NewWorld......

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

Both of them. I also heve tried another thing: tried to boot OS9.0 in qemu.First I initialised 2GB image in OS9.2.2 under qemu,then installed a retail OS 9.0 onto it in SheepShaver.It failed to start in qemu(No valid state found..).Then I copied Mac OS ROM from istallation cd into System Folder.Boot...

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

Looks like you're right.With addr=0x05800000(as well as any other) and without cpu-num=0 it boots into openbios,with cpu-num=0 --black screen with no messages...Can't be quick enough to hold Apple-option-o-f on start :smile:

Isn't it that?: A new virtual device "loader" in qemu 2.8.0-rc2.As documrnted at http://git.qemu-project.org/?p=qemu.git;a=blob_plain;f=docs/generic-loader.txt;hb=HEAD it lets loading data and/or images(ELF or raw images) into memory.Images may be loaded via option "-device loader,fil...

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

I think you should add "media=disk" to string "-drive file=..." and place hard disk string before cdrom string on the command line.Also cpu should be G4. And it seems to me your openbios version is too old.Qemu boots unmodifyed OS9 since about July this year,so no need to disabe ...

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

Just a heads up I installed OS X Sever 1.2V3 onto a real computer (a then imaged its hard drive and pointed qemu to that image and much to my surprise it did start booting but it hung just after detecting the ATA devices. I tried a couple builds of QEMU with no avail (all hang in the same place) (a...

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

Has anyone tried compiling qemu on OS X with quartz fullscreen enabled? Seems to me as that should be inheritable with virtually no actual coding needed, and would fix the issues with improper mouse/keyboard capture, plus integrate better with the OS as a whole. What do you mean?Qemu wip build I us...

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

Hmm; looks like using usbaudio in 10.3 "just works" -- an audio device shows up in the OS, and it's a 2 channel, 16 bit 48KHz device with no configuration options. But I think you can change the properties on the command line, so I'll try a few things out and see if the audio quality can ...

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

Has anyone tried my suggestions of using JACK or similar to simply route the audio to the host? Since audio processing seems to work and it's just the output hardware we're lacking, this should enable output to the host. For that matter, JACK inegration in qemu should work, as it's OSS and cross-pl...

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

Seeing the answers, probably the first thing we could do is enable QEMU to load g3beige ROMset via [-bios] QEMU parameter, so we can see how QEMU emulation behaves with it, and check if we can boot older MacOSs with the hardware emulation g3beige already offers. it's quite trivial to load a 4MB (be...

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

For Public Beta: boot with "-rtc base=2000-08-29" without -net option.In System Preferances>Date & Time>Network Time, disable Network Time Synchroniization.Next,shutdown PBeta and boot again with -rtc and -net options.Thus you bypass expiration issue and have internet.This works for me...
