(If you want to run Mac System 7.0.1 to Mac OS 8.1, Basilisk II is faster, can run full screen at thousands of colors, and be given a lot of memory to run many 68040 compatible Macintosh applications and games.)

I have compiled the Mini vMac 68000 Macintosh emulator for Maemo OS (2008).

Download

Mini vMac can run from Mac OS 1.0 to Mac OS 7.5.5 along with any compatible software and games, but is limited to a grayscale fixed size screen and a maximum of 4 MB of memory.

Your 128k ROM file must be named "vMac.ROM" and placed in same directory as minivmac. You may need to chmod +x minivmac to make executable.

Launch via the terminal command ./minivmac /~path~to~your~/harddrivefilename.hfv

(hfv can be dsk, img, or anything else ... in fact I don't think an extension is needed, and harddrivefilename can also be arbitrarily named.)

It's nice, but basiliskII seems way quicker... too bad for the stick pointer issue.

That reminds me... I have to continue with my basiliskii port. I think I know what might be causing the sticky mouse...

Basiliskii is faster as miniVmac is a rewrite of vMac focusing on code simplicity and size, not speed.

There is a screen size modification patch for this (though given I fixed the sticky mouse in BasiliskII, there isn't too much point...)

Dear OSEmuTech, could you please explain in more details (and for non linux / terminal guy) how to install Basilisc on NIT.

And how to "chmod +x minivmac to make executable.", please.

Thank you!

Hi. Which Nokia Internet Tablet are you using and which Maemo Linux OS?

The website I started covers some of setting up Basilisk: http://home.tampabay.rr.com/osemu/n800/b2/

This page includes running chmod: http://home.tampabay.rr.com/osemu/n800/b2/b2nit.htm

Please review it and post questions. I'm going to try getting 5 hours sleep before going into work. I'll be back at 10:30PM EST to start answering your further questions.

Hi,
N810, Maemo os2008, but I can get N800 also, if it will be easier to install it there. Will it?


it seems that "osso-xterm" is not compatible with os2008, or I don't know how to install it...
I guess, I don't need "Xkbd" for N810.

Tomorrow I will try to make it on N800, but how to "Create .basilisk_ii_prefs file"?

THANK YOU!

I think, there is a type in instructions:

It's written: mv BasiliskII /user/home
You probably meant: mv BasiliskII /home/user

I performed all these steps, but what next?
