So open minded, my thoughts fell out…

It’s Alive!

I finally got OS X 10.4 (aka Tiger) working in Pear PC properly. I had it more or less working yesterday, but some dialogues were displaying as blank and the spotlight thing in the upper right hand corner was showing as a black bar. After trying a number of different things out, I finally hit on the solution. You have to edit the ppc config file to specify a G3 and not a G4 processor. It seems that altivec emulation isn’t quite ready for primetime. Anyways, Tiger now appears to be running without a fault and I have started installing 3rd pary apps and a few hacks (enabling right mouse button/scrollwheel support was top of my list.).
