Compile 68k Mac applications for System 1.1 in OS X 10.9

  View Printable Version 
AppleFrom OSnews: using a MPW emulator, it is now possible to compile 68k Mac OS applications in OS X that work on System 1.1. The emulator makes it possible to run Macintosh Programmer's Workshop on any OS X 10.9 system (but you need a case-insensitive HFS+ volume). Very cool.

Darling: Darwin / OS X emulation layer

  View Printable Version 
AppleDarling is an interesting project, an open source Darwin / OS X emulation layer for Linux. The aim is to achieve binary compatible support for Darwin / OS X applications on Linux, plus provide useful tools that will aid especially in application installation. Early days still, but it will be interesting to see what this project can achieve.

Quick tip: making a device alias permanent in Open Firmware

  View Printable Version 
AppleI needed to make a device alias permanent in Open Firmware on an old Apple PowerBook G4 I have. The alias in question looks like this: devalias ud /pci@f2000000/usb@1b,1-disk@1. It allows me to type things like: boot ud:,bootloader ud:0, which is nice, but doesn't help much if I must type in the devalias every time I power on the machine. So here is how to make it permanent:

nvedit
devalias ud /pci@f2000000/usb@1b,1-disk@1
ctrl-c
nvstore
setenv use-nvramrc? true
Note: ctrl-c means press ctrl+C keys. The last line tells Open firmware to use the contents in nvram every time it boots. Except one thing: it doesn't work. Every time this PowerBook has been rebooted, those settings are missing. Crap.

Getting a Powerbook G4 to boot from a usb hard drive

  View Printable Version 
AppleIt seems like support for booting PowerPC Macs from usb devices are limited. I found a few articles: Boot PowerPC Macs via USB 2.0 drives, USB Info and Benefits of Dual-Channel USB, Easily boot from USB 2.0 drives on PowerPC Macs, Boot a PowerPC Apple from USB, so far I haven't found a way to boot from a usb CD-ROM drive.

GrandPerspective

  View Printable Version 
AppleGrandPerspective is a small utility application for Mac OS X that graphically shows the disk usage within a file system. It can help you to manage your disk, as you can easily spot which files and folders take up the most space. It uses a so called tree map for visualisation. Each file is shown as a rectangle with an area proportional to the file's size. Files in the same folder appear together, but their placement is otherwise arbitrary. Very useful.
