Can't Run PearPC

Post by jordanthebooster »

I have PearPC and a config file made using the .NET app but when I try to run PearPC it shows a little black box and in the CMD window the lines `[IO/CUDA] <Warning> Event processing timed out. Event dropped.` are repeatedly shown. Here is my config file:

Code: Select all

ppc_start_full_screen = 0

key_compose_dialog = "Ctrl+F11"

key_toggle_mouse_grab = "F12"
key_toggle_full_screen = "F11"
prom_bootmethod = "auto"
prom_loadfile = ""
prom_env_bootpath = ""
prom_env_bootargs = ""
prom_env_machargs = ""
prom_driver_graphic = "video.x"

May I ask which version are you using? The first one posted (1.00) doesn't work with PearPC, use the app from this post: viewtopic.php?p=59419#p59419

This is the 1.01, and it should work

Could you provide more info? Specifically the version of PearPC you are using and the Mac OS X version of the disc (disk01.iso).

PearPC tends to have problems with OS X 10.2, you should try with a 10.3 disc and see if it works

I've downloaded the OS X 10.2 install disk, used the exact same config and I had the same issue as you when clicked inside the window. So I can say that this is an issue of PearPC. If you really want to run OS X in PaerPC, you should try an OS X 10.3-10.4 install disk or peraphs you could try Qemu, which runs Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X 10.5

That said, I've successfully run 10.1 through 10.4 in PearPC. I seem to recall that I needed to run 0.4 Redscorp for 10.1 and 10.2, and that the memory and resolution settings had to be set correctly for anything useful to display.

At this point, switching to qemu will be much less painful -- plus, you get more features and almost as much speed as PearPC provides.
