PearPC isn't officially compatible with 10.1. That said, I had it running for years using the redscorp build I think, but the configuration had to be very carefully selected to prevent the mouse lockup. I've since switched to using qemu for this purpose as it DOES support 10.1.

Mouse freezing couse PearPC can't work with multicore CPU's. To avoid freezing the mouse, you need to open the Task Manager, go to the "Processes" tab, find PearPC process, right-click on this process and select "Set affinity", in the appeared window, uncheck all the cores except one. After that, the cursor and keyboard should not freeze.
