How To Get Mac-on-Mac to work - 06/04/06 03:50 PM

i downloaded mac on mac and want to get it working in tiger and install Yellowdog in it so i don't have to deal with dual booting and repartitioning. I'd also like to run os9 in it as well.

I've tryed mac-on-mac and it doesn't work. I tryed running YellowDog and Fedora core with it and nothing. Also I can't get mac os 9 to run with it also.

Mac-on-Mac simply doesn't work... At all... At least for me, it doesn't.

Allegedly it only works on 10.3, but I couldn't even get it working on that. Granted, I was trying on my Pismo, which isn't exactly a speed demon, but...

The title of your post is an oxymoron, mac-on-mac doesn't work. I have tried it on my powerbook G4 with 10.3, and my ibook G4 with 10.4 and 10.5 and nothing. And i have X11 and everything installed. I think mac-on-mac is based on mac-on-linux which has kinda died.

You might be able to get Qemu working though

I know this thread is quite old but, I just have to say the following.

Jan 1 2006
PowerBook G3 Series Rev 2, 266Mhz, 256MB RAM, 40GB HD, 10.3.x client.

The OS you see is 8.6, IIRC I copied the contents of the disk image on an iMac restore CD.

I can't do this again though as I no longer have any Macs running Panther. (My PDQ was the last and aside from being upped to 300Mhz, 384MB RAM, Linksys WPC54G, macally FireWire PCcard, it is running Tiger better than Panther(always has) so I have no reason to go back.)

I might consider installing 10.3 on some of my other hardware though and testing Mac-on-Mac again.
