holy fast! [22 Jul 2004|05:04pm]

Well, after *ahem* reading the sample config file for the cvs build I changed my darwin config and got pearpc to boot the darwin install image. Man! what a great improvment in speed! I'm thrilled. Hopefully the install goes well

Hey, the new Altivec builds work! [21 Jul 2004|08:43pm]

[ mood | happy ]

I am posting this through Tiger using the latest Altivec build. Tiger is still slow, but it's a lot more useable than it was before. Tiger never seemed to like the .3 builds before, at least not on my system, but it seems to be agreeable with the latest Altivec build.

I can actually open up menus without having to wait 5 minutes for them to, well, actually open.

Tiger says I'm running on a 580 MHz G4 with 128 megs of RAM (I tried to add more RAM, but the system wouldn't boot at all, so I had to # the ram out.)

New news updates... [21 Jul 2004|11:17am]

[ mood | okay ]

It's been almost a month since I last posted anything, and since I started this community...sorry everyone.

So, lets get on with what's happened since:

On June 30th, OSX 10.4 was announced.

On July 3rd, co-creator Stefan Weyergraf was hit by a train and killed. Condolences to his family and friends.

On July 4th, someone got 10.4 running on PearPC.

On July 17th, OpenDarwin 7.2.1 was released.

And just within the last couple days, direct access to physical CDROM drives was added, and surprisingly enough Altivec support was added to PearPC giving us G4 processor emulation.

Also during the last month, Cybermagellan at Emaculation opened an archive of official builds and nightly CVS builds; available here. Altivec builds can be found there as well.

For a while there some of the new CVS builds that were coming out were extremely buggy, though things were fixed quickly enough—even if it didn't feel like it happened quickly. Things seem to be running smoothly enough now.

Darwin Lives! [20 Jul 2004|07:37pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

wheee! I finally got a working iso of Darwin 7.0.1 downloaded and am installing it as we speak.

One question though! How do I change the virtual machines date and time? It's currently set to before 2003-09-28 which is before the timestamps in the install tarball. The result is an annoying message that says something like: tar: usr/local/include: time stamp 2003-09-28 hh:mm:ss is X seconds in the future.

I think that being able to change the date on the vm would speed up the install process quite a bit

any ideas?

First Post [28 Jun 2004|02:36am]

[ mood | okay ]

For the inaugural post I will account the solution to a problem that has vexed me for over a week now; how to get OSX onto the internet.

I followed all of the tutorials, and by all accounts everything should've been working fine—even OSX itself said it had an IP and was on the internet. However, everytime I went to actually get onto the internet I would get errors telling me the server wasn't there.

After banging my head over the problem I saw a post on the PearPC forum with the solution! ZoneAlarm was screwing everything up. Not being able to tell the network requests were coming from a single program, ZoneAlarm did the only thing it knew how to do with unknown requests: it blocked them.

Once ZA was turned off I was on the internet instantly. Since I use ZA as my firewall this solution is unacceptable, but at least I know why it wasn't working before. Hopefully more information on configuring a proxy to get around ZA will be offered.
