Hey,

There was a Mac Os made for intel before OS X came out, it was like a transition os between OS9 and OS X. Does anyone have a copy of it or knows what its called?

I think you are reffering to Rhapsody.

You won't find the big amount of help in Rhapsody. OS X has changed so much over the last years. Rhapsody is between OpenStep 4.2 and OS X Server 1.0. The look is like OS 9 but with some differences here and there. It's basicly OpenStep with some GUI changes and updated Frameworks.

The system works on x86 ( yes AMD too ) hardware and really runs great but something or someone has crippled the system to use no more than 192 MB RAM, and of course are the drivers only suitable for some of the most common / populair hardware found around 96/97.

Feel free to ask any questions about the system. Chances are that I can reply to most of them.

There was also project Star Trek which Novell and Apple tried to port Mac OS 7.5 over to the x86. This was before the transition to PPC

there is an image floating around the net called rhapsody_dr2_x86.iso, but it seems corrupted, can't mount it and can't use it in vmware or VPC

Why doesn't Apple release it, like they've done with the OS 7 releases? How long until OS 9 becomes totally downloadable from Apple's archives?

Rhapsody would be really nifty to play with.

It isn't corrupted. And you are not supposed to pirate it.

I can't mount it and can't use it in vmware or VPC

Simply think of it as some kind of anti-pirating protection for ignorant people.

Sorry for sounding so rude, but if you already fail at finding out how to get the Rhapsody installation started (with such wonderful research tools like Google at your hand!), you're better off staying away from it.

One reason: Because it still contains Display Postscript (like all the old NeXTSTEP/OPENSTEP releases, which aren't free, either), for which Apple has to pay huge licensing fees to Adobe (which was the reason for removing it from OS X and introducing Display PDF: Quartz!).

ah yeah, damn I would really have liked to get my hands on Star Trek. To bad that it was not leaked (well, its like only apple employees had their hands on it, they wouldnt have leaked it) (btw, i think it was OS 7, not 7.5).

I believe it was OS7, and called Star Trek. However, I don't think any source or binaries were released, thus I dobut you will be able to run it, unless you somehow manage to acquire a CD from someone who worked at apple *shrug*

Umm you require 2 install floppies and the reason why you can't mount the CD is because the filesystem is unique.

Simply think of it as some kind of anti-pirating protection for ignorant people.

Com'on terry - be nice :) Yet you do have a grain of truth in your answer. If you don't google around and sometime I mean for hours, you will never be able to get something good out of Rhapsody, unless you keep bugging one of the last few communities which are left regarding the NeXT world.

StarTrek is not to be found on any media except an old HD in a 486 computer found in one of the original developers home :D Thereby.. no... we'll never see it unless this guy gets insane and suddenly puts a ghost image or something up on the net... which is ummm highly unlikely.


Sorry for replying to an old post, but I just thought I wanted to chip in with whatever small knowledge I had ;)

I probably shouldn't be saying this, but search the forums.

Major Hint: BitTorrent

Search, because you need to know a lot more than i'm gonna tell you.

Good Luck!
