Hello,
Sorry to resurrect a really old topic, but is there any news on this? I have the same iBook, and I was able to boot it with the OF commands in the other topic (http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,2727), but of course there is no trackpad, sound or proper 3D/2D acceleration. Since the Mac Mini is working now, is there any chance the iBook might one day too?
I'm interested in testing/helping out, but although I'm an IT guy, I'm not that good at programming other than shell scripts and a bit of Perl/Python.
Thanks in advance.

Depends on the iBook you have, the one with Radeon 9200 GFX works really well, the one with Radeon 9550 works, but lots of stuff doesn't.

Hi, I recently grabbed a Mac Mini G4 1.25 GHz from flea market for 40 EUR. I burned the V8 installer of OS9 from here. The mini has maxed out setup, working optical drive and bluetooth + airport in it. What is surprising for me it "accidentally" detected my Rapoo bluetooth mouse during boot from the freshly burned OS9 installer CD, also via airport IP address was assigned in OS9. Though the bluetooth mouse have serious glitch, it seems vertical movements are interpreted fine, though horizontal movements are overamplified, moving mouse up-down slightly 1 mm will make the cursor immediately bump the top or the bottom of the screen, so it seems unusable as of now.
I did not installed OS9 permanently on the mini, it is waiting for a msata-to-2,5ide adaptor ATM (it still has a shitty 40GB HDD in it), currently it has 10.4.11 Tiger installed. I use it with VGA adapter due to resolution issues and screen blankouts, though OS9 boots from CD in 640x480 resolution, I am not sure if I can bump it up to my 1680x1050 monitor. (under 10.4.11 it was set with SwitchResX).

But anyway, it seems mini grabs my bluetooth mouse signal during boot and in a glitchy way that initialization lasts while it boots the OS9 v8 disc.

i think someone has macBinary encoded the files TWICE to alot of the archives
i have noticed that i had to rename the file i downloaded first because there is a file of the SAME NAME inside of itself.. and when you drag to stuffit expander it causes a filename collision and stops the extraction and you end up with file of the same name with a "1" on the end but the extraction sequence does not complete

When last tested, everything worked, I have NOT applied macbinary 2X ?

But...

We moved the entire download library to (2) new hosting servers, when time permits, I will have to power up a G4 and test both the Logic anthology and the Ableton downloads

Lastly...

I get happy emails from many who are using most of the downloads without issues... so I don't think we have a global issue

does anyone know any workaround for opening an NDIF .img that gives the message "requires macos9.1+" ??????? on a system lower than 9.1? (8.6, 7.5.5?)

try renaming the file first before extracting it to prevent the filename collision,
again this is just a guess, based on what ive experienced. i may be way off on whats happening to you.. or it may help.
good lluck

DAW - Logic Audio by Emagic / issues with the "Logic Anthology"
« Last post by macStuff on December 12, 2018, 03:44:41 PM »
i hate to do this but i have to say that from the getgo the packaging + handling of this "anthology" was a bad idea + was very poorly handled
rather than packaging them as individual v1, v2, v3 installs etc

1st issue:
the dongle emulator is not included in the anthology download so far
at least its not in the v1, v2, v3, or v4 portions of which, which ive checked just today... dongle emulator? nope
im trying to run v2.5 of logic an on old mac, can someone please stuff + attach the dongle emulator file?

2nd issue:
to extract the files properl, you have to rename the files because the files have been veyr sloppily macbinary'd twice,
which means to extract them the files have to be decryped more than once, which creates a filename collision, most people
would not understand whats going on and would think the files just dont work..so whoever packaged this.. you get a big F for FAIL

3rd issue:
none of the  .img files are able to be opened on a machine running system 7 (which would be the machines that would want to run logic v1,v2,v3)
the disk images .img files are not able to be opened with disk copy, it throws an error saying "the mount image operation did not complete"
so only people with advanced networking multi-mac setups would be able to successfully install the software the way it is packaged now..
and even those people would struggle. because of the way in which it was packaged.

the GOOD NEWS however is that ALLL OF THIS IS EASILY FIXABLE

its really aggravating though because these files literally cannot be extracted without a system with os9.1+ to use the MOST RECENT version of disk copy..
when they could have been easily packaged using Disk Copy 4.2 and worked just the same for anyone using system 7
