Since you can do things like run Linux on an Ipod, now run Mac Os on a PSP, I think that the next logical evolution now is running Playstation games on your ipod B)

It's sort of an inane concept. Basically, these guys ported Bochs to PSP and then ran Basilisk MacOS Emulator on top of that (Who came up with that idea, anyway?).

 

I'm pretty sure it would be better to do a native Basilisk port or even a hacked-around thing. This is basically a cheap, duct-taped way to do it.

Actually it's vMac, or did I miss something?

Sorry about that. It probably explains the lack of speed; vMac is slooooow. This isn't usable. I don't know of anyone who has reproduced this either. It's nothing to watch until someone hacks the PSP with PDA input. If you've ever tried using a PDA with just arrow buttons, you'll know that even a fully functional OS would drive most people nutty.

Actullay the logical evolution would be playing psp games on a powerbook.

Someone has to much time on his hands. Looks cool but 4 Hrs to boot ouch!!!

 

"Ok... let me do some quick notes with my psp... btw it has apple os inside it. Let me just boot this thing, hang on a sec."

"Boot time is approximately 4 hours using default CPU settings. Setup time was about 40 minutes, just because I had to find all the necessary files and recall how to install them. This cheap hack was done with the version of Bochs for PSP running vMac in FreeDOS."

 

Wow, here's a better tree of that:

OS7 -> vMac -> FreeDOS -> Bochs -> PSP

 

That explains the speed and boot time, at least I'm sure that can't be very fast.

Now, I'm sure with some hacks, you could do this:

OS7 -> Bochs -> PSP

 

or even see if Bochs could be modified and integrated into OS7 (like we use Darwin x86 with OSX) and do:

OS7 (modified) -> PSP
