Looks like you just missed my latest email - there should be no change
required for the RTAS settings.
Ok. If you have tested Cormac's patches, do you see Mac OS 9 booting? I followed all
the directions from his testing page and couldn't see anything that belongs to Mac OS
9. Here is the url: http://c-obrien.org/qemu-os9/testing/
I did my test on Mac OS X, so that could be the problem.
Yes I did have it working with the github macos9 branch and the Cormac's
github upstream branch earlier in the week. Note that sometimes you can
get a hang before the grey screen appears...
If you have a specific problem, reply to the thread on the mailing list
and supply a link to a screenshot so other people can test.
I have followed the directions twice from the testing page and have ended up with just
this error message:
MacOS: unable to find a usable NVRAM partititon - using offset 0x1400.
I am building on Mac OS X, so that could be the problem.
That message is itself not an error, just informational -- OS 9 will
reserve some memory to function as the missing NVRAM. It takes a
varying amount of time to continue from there but it should be less
than 10 seconds.
Cormac, the testing page needs minor changes.
The line where configure is set, please change the path from
"$HOME/os9/qemu-install" to "$HOME/os9-test/qemu-install". The
"-test" part is missing.
After the "Run QEMU with the following command:" text, please remove the
"cd ..". That would take the user into the home folder rather than in the
At that point the user should be in qemu-build, so the parent is os9-test.
The command that runs QEMU should be free of any
'>' characters. They cause files to be made called -bios, -boot, -ccdrom, -M,
and -m. It would probably be easier to copy and paste the command if it were on one line.
I'll put another text box in for copy-paste purposes, but I do prefer
the current formatting. I just used '>' since that's the default $PS2
At the top of the page it talks about having Python 2
installed. The rest of the directions make no mention of using Python. Are you sure it is
QEMU uses autoconf for some Python-related stuff, so it definitely is
necessary. I included this because Arch users might not be aware of
the 'python' -> 'python3' that Arch uses by default.
Other than the minor issues, the web site looks good.
