Mac OS X Server 1.0 doesn't boot with pmu

Tue Jul 03, 2018 1:17 am

Hey guys,

So i have this issue with Mac OS X Server 1.0.

I followed the instructions on the ppc page of the qemu wiki (which tell me to use mac99 with pmu and adb.) and the result of these is that it doesn't boot at all.

i could use cuda, but the mouse goes wacky (even with the usb bus).

There's my qemu.bat configuration and a screenshot of this:

Code:
qemu-system-ppc.exe -L pc-bios -boot c -M mac99,via=pmu-adb -m 256 -prom-env "boot-args=-v" -prom-env "auto-boot?=true" -net none -sdl -cdrom MOXS1.iso -hda MOXS.qcow2 -g 800x600x16

So, what can i do to resolve this?

Hi,

Give it a go with:

Code:
qemu-system-ppc.exe -L pc-bios -boot c -M g3beige -cpu G3 -m 256 -prom-env "boot-args=-v" -prom-env "auto-boot?=true" -net none -sdl -cdrom MOXS1.iso -hda MOXS.qcow2 -g 800x600x16


The jumpy mouse is a known issue and can't be helped right now.

If you don't explicitely need PMU, you can try an early build, where the mouse is normal

e.g. 2018-03-21. By what I saw you are using Windows, you could try Qemu 2018-03-21 64 bit: https://qemu.weilnetz.de/w64/2018/qemu- ... 180321.exe
Qemu 2018-03-21 32 bit: https://qemu.weilnetz.de/w32/2018/qemu- ... 180321.exe

In fact, Cat_7 said that this issue can't be resolved right now.

Yes, but they were referring to the most recent build:

Build from official source as of 20-06-2018. PMU support has landed, and the required rom to support the PMU is now the default. This means this build can run Mac OS 9.0 to 10.5 Leopard all in one. The emulated machine identifies as a 900Mhz PowerMac3,1 .
Main change is that the use of the PMU is now default. However, three options were added to the machine setting:
mac99,via=pmu (provides PMU powermanagement and USB support)
mac99,via=pmu-adb (provides PMU with ADB bus for older OSs that have issues with USB)
mac99,via=cuda (default, provides CUDA powermanagement and ADB bus)

Note: Due to issue with the mouse in this build, it is advisable to use the newest experimental build (see below)

This is from this post
If you read the last paragraph, it says the issue is specific with the 20-06-2018 build, and by mean not with any other build

The older builds have this issue as well.

The mouse problems are manifest when using Windows as host.
In Linux, these do not occur.

It's weird, as I can use perfectly the 2018-03-21 build without the mouse problem. By thw window style I think you are using Windows 10, while I'm using Windows 7, so that might be part of the problem

Yes,

We've seen issues like these before with e.g, qemu on windows 10 failing to initialise disks.
I've now build windows executables with Linux and cygwin. Both exhibit the same issue on Windows 10.
I can't do much more than wait until the cross compiler / libraries get updated.
