SheepShaver Linux hangup on resolution changing on SuSe 9.2

Post by Cat_7 »

Hello,

For some weeks now I'm having trouble changing the sheepshaver screen resolution with suse 9.2
If I start sheepshaver with anything else then "screenmodes 1" (640x480) sheepshaver halts when trying to go from the initial 640x480 window to the desired screensize. SheepShaver totally freezes itself and my system.

I always use the latest cvs builds.

Anyone any idea why? on mandrake 10 it works correctly

Hi,

I use the nvidia driver with 3d acceleration enabled
Never gave me any problems before.

I found this:

If I start Sheepshaver with only one window mode selected (640x480 OR 800x600, so windowmode 1 or 2), Mac OS boots normally.

But if I select both 640x480 and 800x600 (windowmode 3) Mac OS hangs in the boot process when trying to change from the initial 640x480 window size to the 800x600 size.
