BeOS PPC on SheepShaver

Post by Hmmperson »

Hello, I was wondering if BeOS PPC can boot in SheepShaver.
If not is there any other emulator that can achieve this?

Thanks :smile:

SheepShaver will only run MacOS 7.5.X to 9.0.4.
For BeOS PPC, Qemu will be the way to go methinks.

BeOS X86 should run via virtualisation with VirtualBox or VMWare, if that helps.
I know I did set up a BeOS appliance with on of them, would have to look at archives. :)

Sheepshaver has patches specifically for Mac OS, which don't work with BeOS. You can try patching within the emulator to get BeOS running, but don't be surprised if it isn't very stable.

It won't work because this emulator (along with Basilisk II) is practically like DOSbox for launching Mac OS, so no BeOS, no MkLinux. Lack of support of alternative systems on current emulators is one of reasons I've put proposals of "next-gen" Macintosh emulator (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9505#p58327).

See https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0 for a quick reference to what works with what. Blanks are waiting to be filled in by anyone who's tried it.
