10.4 Tiger > 10.4.9

BTW, there is a version of featherlinux called tiny-feather that is only 49mb which we could pop qemu in.
I'm just trying to find it now.

tiny-feather.iso

@mac-mini

you're right, the earliest leaked version was marklar-tiger.dmg and was version 10.4.1

tiger-x86.tar.bz2 is the 10.4.1 version
Apple.OS.X.x86.Developer.Kit.Install.DVD-pheNIX is 10.4.1 also

just google these, the top one is the harddrive image.
the second is the dvd install.

we may as well use 10.4.8 or .9, no use going back to 10.4.1. From an OSx86 point of view and an OS X point of view Tiger has come a long way since last year.

why dont we try modifying rhapsody to act more osx... ish? and was the osx public beta compatable with x86 and would it run on sse? (idc.... just poping some ideas in.... cant test it though... only got sse 3... well one intel thats not, but i cant touch that for fear of messing windows 95 up!)

We could easily get rhapsody to look and act like os x, but it wouldn't BE OS X. There are a few window managers that look almost identical to aqua. Although they are hard to find, I still have a few somewhere on my pc. But you can't run any OS X applications lol.
OS X public beta wasn't x86 compatible although they did release kernel source for x86.

I think you can install this in KDE if you like : http://www.kde-look....p?content=50977
And this used to be a theme source for Rhapsody : http://www.ee.surrey.../schemetotheme/

SuperKarmaba is nice, but I found this application works better for the Aqua Bar:

Here's my desktop with all but ksmoothdock applied:

Here are some KDE themes... with the right combination of these you can have an exact clone of OS X. ;)

Hi there guys, I've been reading up on your past threads and I must say I need what you guys are trying to develop.

I have a Compaq Presario 2195us laptop with:
Athlon XP-M 1.87 GHz
512 MB (DDR SDRAM)

I currently have no OS in it, since I tried installing Tiger 10.4.6 and well... I found out I need atleast SSE2 to get it running. :)

So, I'm able and capable of doing some testing for you guys. Now I was very interested in running OS X 10.3 (Jaguar) on my laptop. I found a copy of 3CDs with the Jaguar install files via torrents and am downloading it as we speak. (Will take a day or som to download = 1.9gigs). Do I need anything else to install these CDs or can I install it natively.

As I mentioned I have OS X 10.4 x86, so I can see if I can install that as well. But I need an external DVD to run those burnt DVD since my laptop DVD-CDRW combo drive will not read them. I can try anything out for you guys starting on Monday :) . Just give me a nice set of instructions and am good to go!

I mean, if you guys manage to get either OS X 10.2, 10.3 or even 10.4 on a SSE processor!! It would be amazing! Good luck!!

**EDIT**
Just wondering if one can use OpenDarwin in order to boot OS X??

You can use your 10.4.6 DVD.

FeatherLinux - 122mb
http://featherlinux....de/download.htm

Install Featherlinux to HDD.
Use USB media/network connection to transfer OS X iso to linux partition.
Boot Featherlinux, open terminal ..
create hdd image, boot OSX.

tell us what happens


BTW, we are using qemu as you can see on the first post.

You can't run OS X natively on an SSE only computer. SSE2 needs to be emulated...
also you can't use 10.2 10.3 unless you have the marklar x86 builds from apple.

If you would like to test for us, here is what you have to do (in detail) :

either :
1. Download a copy of Featherlinux
2. Install it to the harddrive.
3. Copy OS X iso or img to your install.
4. Boot it using qemu
5. At boot options enter " platform=X86PC -v "Graphics Mode"="800x600x16" "
6. Post results.

OR: help us remaster a knoppix cd.

I have Feather Lunux on a 220MB CD I had around. Aparently I can only boot the CD using the failsafe mode. All other options just display a blank screen and freezes.

I do not currently have the OS X iso for 10.4.6 I have the DVD but as I mentioned I'll need the external drive to read it. So I'll have to wait till this Sunday the 21st.

Also, wtf is QEMU? I'll download the full version and see what I can come up with. ;)

As for: "help us remaster a knoppix cd." Well I have no idea how to do that. I'm in no way a software developer or programmer. Not that I'm a NOOB to computing :tomato: but in order to help you I guess you guys will have to be some what specific around the details.

If Featherlinux isn't working for you, you can just use knoppix 5.0.1. Knoppix comes with qemu aswell and is fairly fast. The only problem with using it is you can't load it to ram unless you cut it down small enough. Remastering is just taking out unnecessary applications or adding them. We want to take out as many applications as we can so we can load it into the smallest amount of ram.

Qemu is just an x86 processor emulator. It emulates SSE2, that's how we can get it running on an SSE only pc. If you don't understand, watch the videos in the link I posted in my second post.

Also you need an OSx86 iso for it to work. Not just an intel-mac install DVD.

-save yourself some bandwidth; those disks are for PPC Macs, and 10.3 =panther; jaguar is 10.2. So yes, you will need something else to install them -a G3 to G5 powerPC mac with built in USB. lol
-I think if you used the search function on the forum you'd find how OpenDarwin tied in to the OSx86 project.

Update :rolleyes:

Ok, so Dragon I downloaded and burnt Knoppix.

I loaded it up, and ran Qemu with the commands you posted...
That is when everything went wrong. :)

Ok, the first is the error, the second is the Ext. Drive mounted on /dev/sr0 << the picture presents the contents that it actually is MAC OSX X86 10.4.6

Look at the pictures for the errors. Telll me what I can do Dragon. I'll await your responce.

Also the '-v' command created an error. According to Knoppix that variable doesnt exist in its Qemu

Attached File  ext_drive.png   52.85KB   108 downloads

Guys, Mac OS X on qemu is slow as molasses, you'd be better off using the PPC version on PearPC.
