1. FreeBSD + VirtualPC on a Macintosh (no, really)
I've got a Macintosh G3 (aka PowerPC 750) with VirtualPC that I'd like to use to
run FreeBSD. Unfortunately, I've run into problems which I'm hoping someone
might be able to help with (Connectix's support staff have not replied to my
question, and a search of DejaNews didn't help any either).
The crux of the matter is that the FreeBSD installer doesn't recognize
VirtualPC's primary IDE drive/controller, which makes it pretty tough to install
the OS. :-) Oddly enough, the installer *does* recognize the secondary IDE
controller (i.e. the CD ROM).
For what it's worth, Win95 thinks that the primary drive controller is an
82371FB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller, IRQ 14, i/o ports at 1F0-1F7, 3F6,
For those who are tempted to blurt out that it's hopeless, I should also point
out that VirtualPC does support DOS/Windows 3.x/Windows 95/Windows NT, OS/2,
OpenStep, *and* RedHat Linux (x86-based, of course).
I should also point out that I know about LinuxPPC, mkLinux, and Tenon's
MachTen, but what I really do want to do is run FreeBSD under VirtualPC on my
Mac desktop (at least until Rhapsody ships).
So, if there's anyone out there that has managed to get FreeBSD working under
VirtualPC, I'd love to hear about it. Anybody? Anyone? Bueller?
