I compiled PearPC (a PowerPC Mac emulator) for the Raspberry Pi and installed Mac OS X 10.3. It took about an hour to boot, and then:
According to PearPC's counters, the Pi runs about 1.2 million emulated instructions per second. For reference, my PC (an E6300) runs 50-60 million instructions per second.
The thing I liked best about it was that it was no different than any Linux PC. apt-get install dependencies, configure, make, make install, on a $35 computer that can run on AA batteries. Amazing!
PearPC is a relatively old emulator. I had to use it because modern versions of OSX (those that run on x86, and thus on QEMU) require a lot more RAM than the Pi has.Cylon wrote:Any instructions for pear pc and getting this going , not seen pear pc before ?....
The Original Poster stated OS X 10.3 which runs on PPC architecture, nothing to do with WinTel based OS Xmascondante wrote:Okay I got everything compiled and tried. Even though the github is fairly active there is zero info on emulating Intel (though the commit comments talk about fixing issues all the way up to OSX 10.10.
I'll put off being a hero for now and try a traditional approach. Also it complains about no JIT compiler. Is that something I can correct?
