I was looking into sheepshaver, but I decided to give Basilisk II a try, I prefer to run some of the very old programs from the late 80s and early 90's as well as my marathon stuff.
What I have so far is the 512 mac classic rom (actually, I have them all, starting from 68k up to 1 mg) needed to run the emulator, and OS 7.5.
I'm a little confused on the install instructions so far.
the install text file says
I'm sure I have all the requirements to do all of that stuff, considering that Basilisk II is from 2002, and the fact that I have installed and compiled programs via the Mac/Unix terminal on my computer.Depending on the platform you use, Basilisk II has additional requirements:
You need X11R6 and a "make" utility with the VPATH feature (e.g. GNU make).
For serial, ethernet and audio support, you need pthreads. To use the GUI
preferences editor, you also need GTK+ version 1.2 or better.
To compile Basilisk II, do the following:
make [or "gmake" if you have GNU make and "make" fails]make install [optionally]
To use Ethernet networking under Linux, you either have to configure your
kernel for ethertap support or make and install the "sheep_net" driver:
but the cd src/unix command, it won't read, perhaps its because the instructions were specifically made for unix, and not for apple.
any help is appreciated
