Re: Putting the C8000 to good use?

That happened to AIXPDSLIB. I've got some of it but not all of it, and almost none of the AIX 5 stuff. :/

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

The most stackable Mac since the IIci ... Introducing the Mac Mega. Wait, what about the Xserve? The Xserve is rackable, not stackable. ;) Well, I guess you could stack them, but the IIci had feetsies and the Mac mini (at least this generation) had a rubber mat. That gets ventilation under the unit...

I actually don't mind my 11" MacBook Air. I used a 12" iBook G4 as my regular laptop before that, which still gets occasional use for presentations and as a portable DVD player.

https://www.pine64.org/?page_id=3707 Pinebook looks nice. 64 bit ARM-powered MacBook Air looking thing (in MacBook Air sizes!) for $90 or $100. They're out of the 11" (I tried, they refunded my money). It looks like a nice little unit as long as you don't expect too much, but I wasn't interest...

Re: Wow. Installing cu has turned out to be a nightmare.

I actually suspect the UDF format is in fact the problem. I'd do Rock Ridge (or some other ISO 9660 variant, just not UDF).

Re: Wow. Installing cu has turned out to be a nightmare.

But the discs I made from the IRIX 6.5.22 overlays on OS X don't work or won't work (udf is apparently readable from everything but swmgr


How did you actually burn/master the packages? Why UDF instead of Rock Ridge or something?

Re: your latest purchase

I find Mini vMac a lot more useful than Basilisk, and it is quite swift.

I finished filming the end of the Trans-Canada Highway (from Langley BC to Victoria BC, including the ferry crossing from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo).

Re: your latest purchase

Perhaps its best use these days is for running older Mac software using the Mac OS 9 Classic environment under Tiger. I agree. Even though qemu is getting better at it, there is still no substitute for Classic, and Classic is probably the best single reason to keep a Power Mac around. My iBook G4 a...

Re: Installing SunOS 4.1.4

My Solbourne system uses a SCSI2SD and I just used 2GB partitions. Much of the OS/MP installation procedure applies to SunOS since it's just a variant of SunOS. See http://www.floodgap.com/retrobits/solace/install.html A 2GB partition is more than enough for every single thing on the SunOS disc. The...
