Mouse moves and clicks by itself on Mac OS X 10.1

Post by xuhao394 »

Hi,
I've recently tried to install Mac OS X 10.1 on qemu, but when I tried to move the mouse, I found that once in a while the mouse cursor moves left by roughly 80px and makes a click on its own which makes the system pretty unusable.
boot.bat is below:

Code: Select all

qemu-system-ppc-screamer-60hz-fpu.exe -L pc-bios -sdl ^
-hda .\hdd.img -hdb .\doc.img -M mac99 -m 1024  ^
-g 1024x768x32 -netdev user,id=mynet0 ^
-device sungem,netdev=mynet0  -device ich9-usb-uhci1,id=newusb ^
-device usb-audio,bus=newusb.0
I've also tried to change `-M mac99` into `-M mac99,via=pmu`(or pmu-adb) but it shows a broken system folder icon and won't start up.
What should I do to fix this problem?
Thanks.

Hi,

As you are using a qemu build that has audio support built in, you can at least try to run without the additional usb audio device.
So remove both -device ich9-usb-uhci1,id=newusb and -device usb-audio,bus=newusb.0

Also set memory to below 1024 Mb.

Best,

Hi,
Sorry for replying so late as I have been busy with my study.
I moved the virtual machine to my MacBook running macOS Big Sur and now it works well.
I guess it might be a problem with the graphics libraries (maybe SDL) Qemu used on Windows.
Thank you for your advice!
