  1. Rhapsody 5.6 on iMac DV SE

    The optimist in me says that 5.6 has better support than DR2 I don't have a (working) Mac that's officially supported though. From what I was able to understand from here, using the target disk method you mentioned, the guy was able to get the iMac to boot (so it's apparently the installer that has issues... I think the OS itself can run.)
  2. Rhapsody DR2

    I do read the forums... just not regularly. It's coming... I promise. That annoying "real life" thing keeps interfering...
  3. SheepShaver, OS 9 and old games...

    First, remember that SheepShaver incurs an additional overhead since it's also providing hardware emulation -- it's not just translating instructions from PPC to x86, it's emulating a whole machine. Second, you might try running SheepShaver under Rosetta via the command line. For example: /usr/libexec/oah/translate <subject program> You might have to make use of the "-argv0" switch if SheepShaver requires command-line parameters (I don't know if it does.)
  4. Hi, I've been trying for the last few hours to get Mac OS X Server 1.2 (Rhapsody 5.6) running on an old iMac DV SE. Using the "allow unsupported installations" checkbox, I can get it to change the boot loader of the machine and start up off the disk in an attempt to install. Unfortunately, it fails to recognize the UFS partition that the installer creates -- although it gets to the console-esque installer, it displays the error: The installer was unable to find a preselected installation target. When you hear the startup chime, hold down the "C" key to boot Mac OS from the Mac OS X Server Install CD, and follow the instructions provided to run the Mac OS X Server installation script I've checked the partition map, and the Rhapsody UFS partition is there -- the installer just isn't seeing it. Does anyone (RacerX... please ) have any ideas? All the best, paramac

    If you need OS X Server 1.2 if you need it. Give me a place to put it, and I'll upload it.
