I have managed to install JaS 10.5.4 perfectly on my NC6000. It's got 1.5GB of RAM, a 1400x1050x32 display and a 40GB disk.
I've installed it on an external, self-powered 500GB USB disk. Now that I am satisfied with the external USB, I'd like to move that configuration onto the internal disk and then begin work on Snow Kitty.
However, after doing the complete disk clone to my internal 40GB, the boot gets as far as telling me it is loading iTunes and then it pauses and reboots. This is an exact replica of the external USB.
From my experience with Solaris, I believe this has something to do with the image still thinking it is on a disk with a certain device ID or GUID or something like that. Is there an easy way to modify the installation on my 40GB disk to make it work properly? I believe that may be the case.
Short of that, I'll just have to reinstall on the internal and rsync --delete my Extensions directory over, but I was hoping to avoid that.
Also, is it worth it to run the old backup.sh/restore.sh scripts for doing the Tiger 10.4.11 upgrade with JaS 10.4.8? Will those work and allow me to do an Apple update to 10.5.8?
Finally, has anyone put Snow Kitteh on this thing or am I meowing up the wrong scratching post? Seems I might have some issues with the ATI Radeon and probably with IDE disks but those can be fixed with extensions.
As an aside, I haven't had this much fun since my summer at Northwestern University playing with Mac IIcx'es back in the late 1980s... I think I was about 12.
Some of you may know me as the maintainer of the Solaris 10 package for Basilisk II. I have pretty much abandoned that effort...
