Hi,

Do you mean the patched bios needed to run Morphos? That is not part of the official source. If you want to run Morphos, you'll have use the bios linked to above.

Nevermind, forgot to extract the pc-bios folder from the zip.

FYI, what do you mean by "patched bios" ?

Read the 3 posts above your own post.
They talk about running Morphos with Qemu, and the specific rom that is needed to run it.

That's why I thought you asked about that specific bios. It never appeared to me that you might have not extracted the full download.

I am glad that the new official source build fixes the jumpy mouse issue to the point that Mac OS X Server 1.0 is actually usable. :smile:

But there is still a lot of work to do in order to bring the Windows builds on par with the other platforms. :roll:

Hi Cat_7!
I am installing mac os x 10.0.4k78 to qemu, but when the emulator started to install mac os x the mouse did not move and I want to know why the mouse doesn't move, do you have any solutions?Thank you.

Hi,

My first guess would be that you need to use -M mac99 on your command line. If you already have that,
please paste your command line in your response.

Dear Cat_7 now I have a new problem,when I changed the command line "-boot d" to "-boot c" but the mac os x 10.0 system won't be start from the installed .img file and the emulator screen prints out "Trying hd:,\\:tbxi..." to the screen and it will like this all the time without any changes,can you help me? Thanks.


I have solve this problem by reversing the two command line "-drive file=MacOS9.2.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom ^" and
"-drive file=MacOS9.2.img,format=raw,media=disk ^ “,and the mac os x system will be boot from the .img file normally.

Why there is no official source Windows build for QEMU 4.1?

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

Sat Oct 05, 2019 9:47 pm

Basically because non experimental Windows builds can be had from here:

https://qemu.weilnetz.de/w64/

I nevertheless built a qemu-system-ppc from 4.1 source. Find in the first post in this thread.

2019-09-06 build still has no sound, just like the 2019-04-24 build.

Tough, 2019-08-23-screamer has working sound. Works great (like 2019-02-12). Why do working sound builds have a different .exe? Why not just always have it "screamer" enabled?

Screamer development happened in parallel with some of the other features that have been added since 2015, and there are still some stability issues. As far as I know, Screamer isn't being integrated into the official releases until those stability issues are resolved.

So if you want something with QEMU's reputation of stability, for example if you're running a server, it's best to use the official build. If you want audio support, use the Screamer build, but don't expect it to run indefinitely or not have the odd runtime issue.

Alright, but... meh, the last screamer build works fine here actually! I find it stable. It never crashed on me for 1 hour use.

Hi Cat_7,

I see there are many improvments here. Sound is working great but the emulation with screamer version is kind of slow... Not a big deal.

I have trouble with Networking for Sharing files/folders through the host.
So i followed the tutorial regarding Thursby DAVE 6.2.1. Changed netdrv method for tap, i got internet working and the Qemu IP is pinging through CMD from Windows.

So the step with DAVE is when i have to select it from Chooser in the Apple menu, the wait watch cursor is standing here and i cannot do anything else. I have to shut down and restart the Qemu to work again.

So is there any step to do for the sharing to work properly ? I have OS 9.2.2 using qemu 4.1 screamer with sound support.


Thank you in advance for your help.
