How Can I run g3beige in QEMU?

Post by TheMacGuy »

Hello everyone,

I cannot run g3beige Machine on Windows 10. It does not want USB Mouse and USB Keyboard:
qemu-system-ppc: -device usb-mouse: No 'usb-bus' bus found for device 'usb-mouse'
But usb-bus not works:
qemu-system-ppc: -device usb-bus: 'usb-bus' is not a valid device model name

Hi,

The mac99 machine type automatically adds an usb bus to the machine. This is not true for the g3beige machine. You can add "-usb" and then "-device usb-mouse" "-device usb-kbd" to have usb support with the g3beige machine.

It would be best if you tell us what you want to accomplish.
Having us react to any error you might see is not very resource friendly.

Ok,

As you saw, that will not work. You'll have to use the mac99 machine.
