The PowerPC Emulator “PearPC” works like a charm! Installed Panther (OS X 10.3) today without any problems. Used the pre 0.4 Build merged with Altivec Branch, so that I could have G4 support (the non-Altivec branch only supports the more slow G3).
And yes, I do know that Tiger (10.4) is being released next week, but needed to test this asap.
All info you need on PearPC.Net (check their wiki, holds all info you need … way more in detail than the official site) + on their forums (to set up network connectivity)
Above that, the 0.4 build is being expected soon.
Also installed PC MACLAN today … it recognised all OS X shares (
afp://servername) and printers without any troubles.
PS: yes, I know this is nerdy, but I needed all this for my on-the-job training, so I can test if a MySQL upgrade goes without any problems (PearPC) and connect to the G4 Fileservers (PC MACLAN).
would you happen to have a utility called GSDirector that is used in conjuction with PC MACLAN to direct mac print jobs to Ghostscript then to the print? I would be most greatful.
Sorry Peter, can’t help you out here. Actually never heard of GSDirector …
