Hacking the System, Mac OS 9.3, and Beyond ! / Re: Mac OS 9.2.2 G4 Titanium PowerBook

Wow… I discussed this very issue just yesterday!

http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,5221.msg37787.html#msg37787

The File system on your 9.2.2 machine is too far removed from the far, far newer 10.13 + systems.
It might as well be Egyptian hieroglyphics as far as they can tell.

Say, "Thank you Apple, I love abuse… may I have some more?"

Hacking the System, Mac OS 9.3, and Beyond ! / Mac OS 9.2.2 G4 Titanium PowerBook

Hello everyone!

How do I get this G4 TI PB to show up on my OS 10 local Network?

As I key this in, I have an Ethernet Cable connected from this TIPB to to an AirPort Extreme Tower.
That Extreme Tower communicates Wirelessly with other Extreme Towers on my Network. (All at the AC speeds)

My MacBookPro (connected to an Extreme Tower), my Mac Mini (connected to an Extreme Tower), my MacPro Tower (connected to an Extreme Tower), all OS 10.13 or higher show up just fine on the local network.

This G4 running OS 9.2.2 does not. I have FileSharing turned on, I have AppleTalk turned on (which might be part of the problem), working through the Ethernet port. The equalivant of Users & Groups is populated with all my other computer user names and PWs in an attempt to connect back to the G4 as well.  So far, no joy!

Any ideas or suggestions?   

Thank you for you time and consideration!

u dont need to go out and buy a ethernet over power system; 
the takeaway point greystash makes is that some routers DHCP servers dont work 100% correctly;

u should be able to just circumvent this by specifiying the proper ip address settings yourself;
if it didnt work then you must have set something incorrectly,

what is your router/gateway private ip?
subnet?
what brand/model is your router?
are u using any network switches?

192.168.0.1
255.255.255.0
Netgear
No switches

I've manually assigned that same router/subnet address in my iMac G3 and a whole host of other different computers in the past with no issue, so I'm not convinced that is the case.

there are many diff install cds provided on this site to be specific maybe drop a url to the post containing the download u used?

i have found a few of these brand new + shrinkwrapped - if anyone is interested in getting one drop me a pm
the box actually comes with SOFTRaid installation CD
and some IDE cables and a molex power Y breakout cable
AT66 sounds alot slower than SATA150, but it still is faster then the ATA33 built into many G3/G4
and will BOOT macos9 : very limited availability

if you have to you can always install a gigabit ethernet PCI card
although that would cost an expansion slot
but; you already said the built-in nic works fine in OSX so that is a waste;
(oops sorry i was thinking u were using an MDD, i see now its a powerbook! lol
https://everymac.com/systems/apple/powerbook_g4/specs/powerbook_g4_1.0_17.html)


if it was me, i would say something about your install is screwed up;
what source did u use to install os9?

any os9 powerbook users able to help this guy out?

The only source for this installation I've used is the one on this site
