Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


New Mac emulator seems to work

Have been trying out PearPC over the last day or so. It spent last night installing Jaguar, but it failed to boot this morning (hung saying "waiting for root device"), so it spent today installing Darwin, which worked (booted fine after install) and is now installing Jaguar again over the top of the bootable Darwin installation.

[image: writing files, will take several hours more]

It takes a little while to install things on a 10 MHz emulated CPU :-)

Update (the following morning): it reset sometime last night, perhaps at the end of a successful install? Or because something went wrong? Whatever, now when I boot from the HD image, I get JITC Warning, program exception: 00080000 00000000 errors forever. Oh well ...
