Mac OS ROM 5.2.1

I'm looking to boot Mac OS 9.0 in qemu, the documentation says I need Mac OS ROM 5.2.1 and that it should be on the Cube CD for OS 9.0.4, but all I find is v3.x and that doesn't work. Can anyone explain where I can get v5.2.x? I tried v6.1 that comes with OS 9.1, but that bombs out when I reach the ...

Re: Bounty G3 Beige Floppy support

If someone wants to get started on this, I captured the state of the code in a tar.gz, and it should build just fine in most modern versions of the macOS. Trouble is we don't have a PPC GDB to work with in the macOS anymore and I'm having trouble building one, however, you can switch the Endian of G...

Bounty G3 Beige Floppy support

Thanks to some fine works by a few Mac emulator fanatics, we can now boot v3 of the Beige G3 ROM in Qemu. The trouble becomes we are not emulating any block devices well enough to attach any disk images to. So I figured I'd offer a small bounty to see if some bright programer would implement floppy ...

Re: Help me choose the best emulator

You don't really have any easy options. SCSI to USB is expensive, seem some Ebay seller has cornered the market on these, and the 50pin is not quite the same as the 50pin on the 7100's HD, so you'd also need and adapter and a way to power the drive. Also, who knows what driver issues you'd have with...

Just out of curiosity, could the M68kLinux booter be adapted to bootstrap the NetBSD kernel? Apologies if there's an obvious reason why not and I'm just too n00b to know it. It would require a major overhaul of the boot loader, as one is made for a Linux kernel and one is made for a BSD kernel. At ...

Others may already know how to do this, however some may not. Creating a disk image that works with both Qemu and SheepShaver. First use SheepShaver( GUI ) to create the image file, but don't boot and initialize it. Quit SheepShaver, and boot Qemu-system-ppc with the disk image you created with SS. ...

Re: Having a hard time with Mac OS 9.0.4

What works with 9.0.4 that doesn't work with 9.2.x? I always found 9.0/9.0.4/9.1 highly unstable even on supported Mac's. 9.2.x was far more stable, even on unsupported Mac's. So, if you have software that won't work, or won't work as well then it maybe worthwhile to run 9.0/9.0.4/9.1 vs. 9.2.x, if ...

Re: 24-08-2019 Qemu 4.1 for W64 Experimental ATI Rage 128 Pr

A few notes here GTK seems to be broken in this build, mouse leaves emulated screen and the system is unusable. Add -sdl to the qemu command. Also there is no point in loading the Rage128.rom, the disk based 'NDRV' is all you need, and loading the FCode ROM doesn't give you any more functionality. T...

Re: Unable to boot to Mac OS 9.1 under Kali Linux

You can't boot OS 9 with a g3beige target in Qemu.

You need to use the mac99 machine model to boot OS 9, I.E.
