Q (KJU) – Qemu – CPU Emulator for Mac

Q (KJU) / Qemu:

I get quite a few e-mails asking about an emulator that will work on PowerPC.  This is something that I didn’t have to use so far but I did receive quite a few referrals from readers recommending an application called Q (KJU).

Run: Windows/Linux/Etc.

* Q (KJU) (Free) Emulator that is PowerPC friendly – http://www.kju-app.org

I found this link very helpful with step by step in how to instal it: http://maemovmware.garage.maemo.org/2nd_edition/installation_qemu.html#Installing_QEMU_on_Mac

  2. The latest builds of qemu will run on PowerPC, and will also emulate a PowerPC Mac well enough to run Mac OS 9.0.4 through OS X 10.5.6. Some versions will need qemu 2.8 or later to function; the rest will work perfectly fine with the current 2.7 build. Qemu will of course also emulate an x86 architecture, so will run Windows.

    You will have to build the PPC version yourself though; there isn’t a currently available build available for download.
