Are using the 4th of May 2018 213pre build? That contains a 256 colour vga-driver that might help here. Check out the readme in the vga-driver folder.

Best,

Thanks; I didn't think to try the 8 bit driver since I was getting a panic, but I now recall the reason we built that version... yeah; it should work. I'll check it out tonight.

I think I used 16 bits for that, actually. Try using that as well and see if both OS X and OS 8 work.

16 bit did the trick! Both 8.6 and Server are quite happy with it.

No, not natively. However, as said earlier, you can get 8.6 running via Blue Box (though it is very slow) when you install Mac OS X Server 1.2v3.

I'm confused on when you install DP2, you need to partition the hard drive. What do you need to do? Do you need to install 9.2, then install from there?


I posted a script to pre-partition a disk image for OS X Server/DP2, but it's buried in the thread somewhere. With this, you can boot straight to the OS X installer and skip the OS 8/9 steps. Permalink: https://gist.github.com/steventroughtonsmith/b780c32c941ae22ea1ee410cfa9e5936

Btw awesome to see that OS X Server now responds to keyboard & mouse! :D

Code:
#!/bin/sh

TARGET_IMAGE=Mac_OS_X_Server_1.0-4G.img

#1G
DISKSIZE_IN_BLOCKS=2097152

#2G
#DISKSIZE_IN_BLOCKS=4194304

#4G
#DISKSIZE_IN_BLOCKS=8388608

PRIMARY_PARTITIONSIZE_IN_BLOCKS=`expr $DISKSIZE_IN_BLOCKS - 512 - 16384 - 64`

echo $PRIMARY_PARTITIONSIZE_IN_BLOCKS

pdisk $TARGET_IMAGE -initialize
pdisk $TARGET_IMAGE -createPartition MOSX_OF3_Booter Apple_HFS 64 16384
pdisk $TARGET_IMAGE -createPartition SecondaryLoader Apple_Loader 16448 512
pdisk $TARGET_IMAGE -createPartition "0x000001FF 0x0008 0x00" Apple_Rhapsody_Inst 16960 $PRIMARY_PARTITIONSIZE_IN_BLOCKS

@adespoton, can you send me your QEMU folder that you use for Server 1.2v3? You don't need to include any disk images/toast files as I have those already, I can only get it working in Windows, but never OS X, and it would be great to try this out.

EDIT: Don't worry got it working now on OS X with latest build.

It's a shell script for Linux; if I have some spare time, I may make it OS X friendly and put a Platypus wrapper around it so it presents as a runnable application with prompts for disk size.

Linux uses pdisk much like we use diskutil on OS X. Of course, you can probably install pdisk with brew on OS X as well.

The script posted by Steven is for Mac OS X in fact. I used it a year ago to make disk partitioning for Server installation. Somehow pdisk was and is present in my system. I think it belongs to BSD subsystem as it exists in, say, NetBSD, too.
As for Meow, he uses Windows, as I recollect, so the only option for him is using the script in virtual Mac OS X.

We could upload an image, freshly formatted on Mac OS X with this script, for windows users.

You'd zip it, then it would be very quick to download because of how compressed it can go.

I have pdisk too on os x.

Weird; I somehow missed pdisk existing on the BSD subsystem :)

The disk images compress to almost nothing with lzma compression, so maybe we should just create a set of them and add them to the QEMU build zips hosted here.

Announcing another Qemu milestone: the PMU is ready for prime time!
(should I find a job in advertising?)

Find the OSX build here: http://www.open.ou.nl/hsp/downloads3/Qe ... 062018.zip
Find the Windows build here: http://www.open.ou.nl/hsp/downloads3/Wi ... 062018.zip

And be sure to read the post for OSX here:
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=8848&p=52102#p52102

And for Windows here:
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=9028

The downloads include both qemu-system-ppc and qemu-system-ppc64 builds.
Other news is that these builds now allow installing various Linux PPC versions as well.

Happy testing and please report on your findings.

Best,
Cat_7

Thanks! I like how you can choose USB or ADB now to avoid the glitches we were experiencing in previous builds.

Two new OSX builds are available in the experimental OSX builds section:

One containing a fix for the cuda adb so the mouse will work again in 9.0 with -m mac99
One containing an up-to-date screamer-based build.

As always: do not mix both builds, as e.g., the bios file is specific for the screamer build.

Find the builds here:

Ah; so it's basically 2.13 as far as PPC goes, still missing screamer integration?

I would say there is no mayor change that would justify that version jump. I believe it was more a feeling that now was as good a time as any. So I suspect some irrationality there, and perhaps that was the fear for 13?

As the screamer goes, there are still too many issues with it. Only yesterday I was running the latest screamer code with OSX 10.0 and the moment I clicked the Sound preference Qemu went into an "invalid key" loop....

Best,
Cat_7
