PearPC displaying only a black square on gray backroung

Post by MacintoshPrototype »

Hello,

I've recently got a new 4k monitor and I had to set scaling to 150% but since then, PearPC won't work, displaying only a small black square on gray background. Nothing happens if I press any key / move the mouse. I want to install Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger from install DVD. That display glitch (if I can call it so) happens when I choose to boot from DVD, I don't have any preinstalled HDD image to test with. Is this caused because of scaling or am I doing something wrong?

Thank you.

Finally got it working (somewhat). Now, it just displays an Apple logo (with the spinning wheel) but does nothing. I tried the -v parameter, it seems to hang at

Code: Select all

launchd: ioctl(SIOCAIFADDR ipv6): File exists
