PearPC: Installation Guides, Tips and Links!

Sun May 16, 2004 4:22 pm

Guides that will help you to install the emulator and the Mac OS:

STKD wrote a nice guide to installing Mac OS 10.3 without using Darwin. It includes a download link to a preformatted 10.3 image (not the OS, just a file you can install it onto). Read it right here:


For a similar prepared image, but for use in 10.2, see this thread from Cat_7:


The folks at #pearpc have produced an installation guide to the emulator, and have collected some helpful links:


Got this one from NeoWin. It looks pretty nice:


Mike Kolassa wrote an "unofficial" guide to the emulator. His is a little out-of-date, but can still be found over here:


Helpful Links:

The official PearPC page is over here:


The SourceForge project page is over here:


CoasterMaster created a script that will generate a config file for you. It is right here:


A Note:

Anything else worth noting? Reply with a link.

Highly recomend TinkerTool once OSX is running - allows you to turn off animations (Saves a second or two on redraws) and mess with a few hidden preferences within OSX.
