I don't know about you guys, but while running Linux on PPC, I find QEMU to be a wonderful asset:

Quote:
QEMU version 0.7.0 is out. First release with support for the QEMU Accelerator. Full x86_64 and MMX/SSE/SSE2 emulation support. SPARC target can now boot Linux. Much improved ARM user mode emulation. Many bug fixes.


Changelog

Cool! Now I can get full system emulation under ppc!!!!!!!!

It would be nice to know if you can boot from qemu an already installed system.

P.S.: Can I emulate a ppc machine under ppc like mac-on-linux does? I want to run darwin on it, because it didn't run under mac-on-linux.

Code:
DarkThunder silian87 # ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~ppc" emerge -vp qemu

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!

If you want to emulate a PPC environment, you can use PearPC.
It's an emulator, so there is a performance hit ...
I've been told it boots tiger just fine, so it should boot darwin 8.0 as well ...

I think yes but:
1) you need a complete X86 X11+LIBS compiled.
2) you need 3D accel. under linux/ppc.

But I think games will run slowly (3D games will be very slowly).

I think you can play only to 2D games.
