I know that I'm pretty late, but some months ago I tested Rhapsody DR2 x86
on an old Compaq with a Celeron 400 processor and 128MB and Rhapsody ran well.
I had a spare video card that was fully supported (Cirrus Logic GD5436), but
unluckily neither the network card nor the sound card that I have in it were supported.
The applications available for it are very few, you can get Nextstep and OpenStep applications
running but it's difficult as they will often complain about missing libraries or libraries
in different places than where they are in Rhapsody.
The only filesystem supported are UFS and ISO9660, and that gave me problems,
as I tried to transfer files via tar archives written raw on floppies, but it didn't let me do that,
I wrote on the floppy device using dd and then the floppy driver crashed and I couldn't use
the floppy at all if I didn't reboot.
I managed to compile some applications directly on Rhapsody, with its old GCC 2.7.
You can find them here.
It's mtools (useful for transferring files through FAT formatted floppies) and unace
(unarchiver for old ACE 1.x files, compiled mostly for its sake to see if it compiled).

Does anyone have a good copy of DR2 PPC? I have the bad copy that was going around a few years back with the corrupt/missing desktop database.

I dug out my copy. Here's the details. Can you compare them to yours and we'll see if it's a different copy?

Sweet, hopefully you have a good copy. I just got another one but it too is a bad dump (same size, different md5). When I try booting off the CD it craps out before loading the desktop with this error:

"Sorry, the desktop folder on the startup disk could not be created. Try unlocking the disk."

The md5 of this other copy is 2d0c2da7d1543a538a5e40ee13f71256. So it seems there's more than one bad dump in circulation :D

sorry that it toke so long: i have everything about old platforms on external hds and haven't had time since today to check it out.
so, i don't have rhapsody dr2 for ppc, but i have a version of mac os x server 1.2 (wich could be considered the "stable" version of rhapsody) that should work (the cd booted the mac os classic installation enviroment and the rhapsody partition was present, but could not install the bootloader, since the machin was too new).
the md5 is

Hi everyone!

So I have to ask: Has the PowerPC Rhapsody DR2 CD been copied yet (into a disk image) and made available somehow (Rapidshare / torrent / something) ??? There were several attempts, but not sure it was ever accomplished.

I hope you guys are still lingering out there :(

Thank you.

jackoverfull: nope, I had searched Demonoid thoroughly, it's not there... even searched 'Unseeded'. No evidence it was ever there :(

Anyone have the Rhapsody DR2 PPC disk image?

Thank you.

Please let me know if that DR2 PPC image is good! Both copies I got had corrupt HFS sessions. You'll know when you try to boot it because it won't be able to load the desktop.

@jackoverfull: Thanks for the update.
