=== TITLE ===
Make all versions of Mac OS 9 boot successfully in QEMU with all Apple extensions
'''Summary:''' Short description of the project
Mac OS 9.2 does boot in QEMU without extensions, but certain extensions that ship with Mac OS 9.2 need to be disabled or else they will cause booting to fail. We need any issues with OpenBIOS and QEMU fixed so that Mac OS 9 will boot successfully in QEMU.
Detailed description of the project.
These are the known extensions that cause Mac OS 9.2 to crash:
• Apple Audio Extension
• Apple Enet
• Multiprocessing folder
• Open Transport aslm modules
• Text Encoding Converter
Without them some applications running in Mac OS 9 are severely limited or simply refuse to run.
