I'm a NOOB running SS on a Raspberry 3. It worked for about a week but now won't open. Rebuilt everything with a slick OS and reinstalled SS, nothing.

What broke? What can I fix? It worked and then doesn't so I know it *should* work again.

I'm not dumb and I know MacOS, basic programming, and electronics but I need this Barney-style as Linux is still a HUGE learning curve I struggle with.

TIA

Do you have any log output to indicate what stage it failed to load at?

I honestly do not know how to tell but if you tell me where to look I can check. Alternatively, as I am launching this from the GUI (and when attempted with Terminal mode it dies right away flashing the terminal window for like a nano second), is it possible to launch this from a terminal command vice double clicking the executable? Perhaps I could add some string to the command to give persistent feedback in a terminal windo rather than the one launched by the GUI.

Try launching the terminal window first, and running it manually from inside the terminal window; this way, the error information will go directly to stdout, which in this case is the terminal window.

Alternatively, you may have something in /var/log/syslog.

Which OS are you running on the Pi3?

I checked the staking but there was nothing in it from SheepShaver (based on the timestamps).

Running the program from a fresh terminal window was very helpful - feedback says "ERROR: Invalid ROM file size. SheepShaver requires a 4MB PCI PowerMac ROM."

The 'ppc.ROM' I'm using is the one that was included with the install and exists in the same folder as the executable.

Hi,

Please name that rom file "Mac OS Rom" (without the quotes). If that doesn't work, download a known-to-work rom from the redundant robot site. Find the one labeled "best for SheepShaver".
Name it "Mac OS Rom" .

That should solve the issue you experience.

Best,
Cat_7

This worked perfectly!! Thank you.

Best I can autopsy this, when I originally added stuff for a different project, I broke my install. When I slicked my SD Card and installed again I missed the step to correct the ROM.

Thanks for your patience.
