 I am running qemu-system-ppc from my archlinux:

is possible, and how, to boot from macOSX dvd ?



This should do it:

qemu-system-ppc -cdrom /dev/cdrom -m 512 -boot d

or maybe this:

qemu-system-ppc -cdrom ~/Desktop/macos10.4.iso -m 512 -boot d

or maybe this one:

qemu-system-ppc -m 512 -M mac99 -cdrom <some file> -hdd <some file>  -boot

Please be sure to use QEMU 1.6.0 or higher when trying. Mac OS X support
was only added recently. Also stick with -hdd if you want to use a file as
the hard drive. The other hd letters don't allow Mac OS X to boot.

The only version of Mac OS X I have installed successfully was Mac OS 10.2.
Maybe you might have better luck.

I would replace the -hda with -hdd. Also whatever device /dev/sr0 is, remove it. It probably isn't supported. Use a disc image file or /dev/cdrom for the real cd-rom drive.
