 +===== SheepShaver on OS X! =====
 +
 +Over on the [[http://​www.emaculation.com/​forum/​viewtopic.php?​t=898|forum]],​ a fellow named Grobedo has just reported that he has compiled and run SheepShaver on Mac OS 10.3. He has posted some screenshots over [[http://​www.grobedo.com/​sheep/​index.html|here]].
 +
 +Grobedo promises a "​how-to"​ will be forthcoming.

 +===== SheepShaver Bug? =====
 +
 +Over on [[http://​forums.delphiforums.com/​stoncolddsl/​messages?​msg=175.1|his own forum]], Rob "​jawa"​ Snyder suggests a particular problem when compiling SheepShaver:​
 +
 +"​Sheepshaver compiler bug. I belive there to be a bug in the code. that is keeping Coppermine Based PIII/​Celerons from compiling SheepShaver...A problem I had mention before but had no idea at the time it was a possible bug caused by the cpu type. So far I done stock full installs of slack 9.1 on a P4. 2.8 ahtlon classic 950 Duron 800mhz and PIII coppermine 1ghz Celeron coppermine at 633 celron coppermine at 800 mhz. Only the coppermines seem to have a compiling error. All others seem to compile and work just fine. I need to get more motherboards in as the two socket 370 boards I have use the same chipset and it could be a chipset issue. I belive it to be a bug in Sheepshavers code as on these same coppermine machines I am able to and have compiled KDE 3.2 Gnome 2.6 (also made slack pack for gnome 2.6) and the new 2.6.4 kernel." ​

 +Hmm?
 +
 + --- April 7, 2004
 +
 +
 +===== No Updates =====
 +
 +Sorry about the lack of updates.
 +
 +I've been worried about exams for the last month. I'm going to have a Bachelor'​s degree (English/​History double major) in a couple of weeks. Such fun.
 +
 +Also, the page loads like crap. My [[http://​www.interactive-hosting.com|host]] doesn'​t offer any support, and I feel like a tool for promoting them on this site a few months ago.
 +
 +I feel like I'm paying for nothing, and that's not cool.
 +
 +The slow-load thing makes updating no fun.
 +
 +Updates to come. Soon, I swear. ​
 +
 + --- April 24, 2004
 +
 +
 +===== Updates =====
 +
 +And now, things load nice. I sort of want to move to a new host. Got a nice offer from one reader, that I might take up, when I get my marbles together. <p> Look for all of the updates I missed during the break very soon...
 +
 + --- April 30, 2004
 +
 +
 +===== SheepShaver in Windows?! =====
 +
 +This missed story is the biggie:
 +
 +Over in the [[http://​www.emaculation.com/​forum/​viewtopic.php?​t=917|forum]],​ a fellow called Trombone Bob (a second cousin to the enigmatic [[http://​doo.nomoretangerines.com/​nevhood/​nevabout/​biowilli.htm|Willie Trombone]]) posted about getting SheepShaver to compile in Windows using [[http://​sourceforge.net/​project/​showfiles.php?​group_id=98788;​|colinux]].
 +
 +There are instructions right [[http://​www.emaculation.com/​forum/​viewtopic.php?​t=917|here]]. And also a screenshot! And yes, the instructions are very complicated.
 +
 + --- April 30, 2004
 +
 +
 +===== SheepShaver Updated! =====
 +
 +Also, back on April 13, Gwenole posted this to the SheepShaver dev-list:
 +
 +"Got some time this weekend and committed a few changes to CVS: - Runtime depth switching now works, tested 1bpp -> 16bpp - Fullscreen now works in emulated PPC mode, only tested on 32-bit big endian target
 +
 +I also disabled VidMode extension by default as it's highly X server dependent and does not always work. e.g. on my PBG4, I get a black screen when switching to anything < 1024x768.
 +
 +BTW, if someone knows the Apple timing ID for 1152x768, I don't have Universal Headers handy new enough to check."​
 +
 +The ever-lovely [[http://​www.ou.nl/​open/​hsp/​Engels/​SheepShaver_Help/​index.html|guide]] to SheepShaver will give you directions on how to build the source.
 +
 +(It dawns on me that if you are reading these news items from top-to-bottom,​ you won't really understand the use of "​also"​ in this one. Sorry for that.)
 +
 + --- April 30, 2004
 +
 +
 +===== Lots of Views! =====
 +
 +Meanwhile, my favorite [[http://​www.emaculation.com/​forum/​viewtopic.php?​t=738|thread]] in the forum just passed 10,000 pageviews. I love that - it makes me think that lots of people are using SheepShaver.
 +
 +Additionally,​ "​a"​ and "​z"​ are running neck-and-neck in the "best letter"​ poll.
