Can't get OS9 to launch

Post by DrJ30772 »

Hello! I've been working on this project for a while, and now I'm completely stuck.

I have a Raspberry Pi 3B+, running Rasberrian.
I've gotten SheepShaver compiled, and it launches just fine. I have an ISO and ROM image, but when I click "start" I get a popup error that says:
SheepShaver error:
Cannot map Low MemoryGlobals: Invalid argument
I have set vm.mmap_min_addr = 0 and set the .pref file per this thread.
Then SheepShaver closes out and my Terminal window gives me this error:
SheepShaver V2.4 by Christian Bauer and Mar"c" Hellwig
The program 'SheepShaver' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 9 error_code 2 request_code 105 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
I'm out of ideas, and my Google-fu is faltering.
Do you have any suggestions?
