  1. Yeah; in my case, this is my "Classic application server" so I've got it dedicated to running VNC and AirFoil, so I can spin up old software on a modern system. If it weren't for the slow data bus, I'd move my server back to my G4 Mini from my CoreDuo Mini as it's so much quieter and less memory intensive. As it is, I run 10.6 on my CoreDuo, and it happily (albeit noisily) handles the NAS and other networking requirements.
  2. ...so much for that. Tiger builds appear to be x86 only.
  3. I'm going to check the two using my 10.4 install and see if there's a noticeable difference. My use case is similar to yours; TigerVNC 1.7.1 is the last version to support 10.4, so that's what I'll go with. Most of the newer stuff is just to take advantage of faster hardware, although there's also some solid keyboard mapping/tracking and mouse improvements in later versions. I'll post back in here with my results; one of the things I'm hoping is that TigerVNC will support a wider range of VNC clients.
  4. I haven't dug into it at all yet, but theoretically it should be possible to replace the VNC engine in OS X 10.x PPC (at least for 10.2 through 10.5) with the TigerVNC daemon. This would give us a much more performant, encrypted, and feature-rich VNC server to use, and should still be backwards-compatible with ARD. Thoughts? Or should I just settle for getting TigerVNC running as a daemon on these systems?

    Free 68k (dis)assembler for Mac?

    I've used ghidra to disassemble fat binaries -- it's doable, but I haven't seen many useful modules that do anything with the results; we'd have to write those ourselves. I haven't bothered as I use IDAPro, so only use Ghidra when I want to scratch a curiosity itch. On the plus side, you can use it to disassemble 68k NetBSD binaries!

    List of Operating Systems

    Also might be useful to move to the Wiki: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wB2HnysPp63fezUzfgpk0JX_b7bXvmAg6-Dk7QDyKPY -- mapping of Mac ROMs, what computers they're in, and what OS and hardware config they support.

    Hmm... looks like the page re-shuffling broke the link. https://apple.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_Mac_OS_Versions is the appropriate location now. Amazing what a difference in one V will do.

    Alternative LocalTalk cabling

    I'd stick to Cat 6/6e cabling (what I have) and then just use a modified PhoneNet adapter to connect to it. The impedance shouldn't be an issue, it's designed to tolerate way greater interference, and you can re-purpose the cabling for many other things (I also run my DC voltage over the PoE line to USB charge ports).
  9. So do you have plans to support dithered B&W output? That'll run on a 512x342 display? That'd be amazing if you could, even at 12fps!

    List of Operating Systems

    Hi everyone, Just thought I'd mention that I have no problems with my work at https://apple.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_Mac_OS_versions being duplicated onto the wiki here at https://wiki.68kmla.org/List_of_operating_systems. I haven't covered non-Macintosh operating systems there, but I might be convinced to add details for older Apple computers and other devices if there's interest.
