Qemu 0.90 patched for NeXTSTEP 3.3 i386

Patches for Qemu 0.90 are available here:
http://www.vaxenrule.com/Shared%20Documents/patchesforNeXTSTEP-on-Qemu-0.9.diff The busmouse patch still survives here.
The win32 exe is here.

A PowerPC macosx 10.4 binary is available here:

This moves the soundblaster to IRQ 7, and incorporates a bus fix & busmouse additon. Remember to remove the parallel port for this to work correctly. Tested with NeXTSTEP 3.3

Why all the patches, you may ask? Well for some reason NeXTSTEP is unable to correctly drive the mouse in Qemu. Nobody has tracked it down, but I suspect it’s some wierd issue with the BUS… Anyways I found this busmouse patch ages ago, and I’ve just been finagaling it for ages so that it will keep on working. I know that there are a hand full of enthusists left, but I figure that for all interested they would appreciate this.

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. Hello, I'm trying to install Rhapsody DR2 under Qemu 0.11.0, but the mouse problem still isn't fixed. Is there a similar busmouse patch for this version?
    If not, I would appreciate very much that if you had the 0.90 patched build, you uploaded it somewhere since the link you provide no longer works.

    Thanks,
