Hi, all.

Now that we're seeing so much action with Previous emulating m68k NeXT, I'm wondering if it would be possible to have a PPC emulator that runs OS X Server v1.2. I no longer own a Mac that is capable of running OS X Server v1.2, but I still own the OS license and would love to be able to run it again.

Thoughts on that one?

I doubt that any of the existing PowerPC emulators have the required hardware emulation to run Rhapsody, considering how picky Rhapsody is about the hardware. The only available options that I know about are PearPC and QEMU. You could always give them a try but the chances are very slim: http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2492

As an alternative, I would be delighted to assume new ownership of your Mac OS X Server v1.2 media and license, if you are interested... Very Happy

Thank you for your generous offer, but I will be keeping my OS X Server media and license. Cool

I should try the available emulators to see what they can do.

I'd like to try OSX Server 1.2 in PearPC too ... Can't get a hold of the iso though. The oldest OS I've tried is OSX 10.1, it installed quite flawlessly. If you're going to run it in linux, I strongly recommend using the win32 0.5 binary with WINE as it's got the JIT working, which the *nix versions don't have. It makes one hell of a difference speedwise...
