Or, we wouldn't have to wait if you had one of these & pulled the drive...https://www.ebay.com/p/?iid=37146003140 ... rue&chn=ps
Well . . . "Est shipping from Hong Kong May 11 - June 16th" ??? I might be able to get to it before then . . . but, might be helpful to have one of those . . . the PM has the "IDE" connector???
I got the "Rosetta.pkg" . . . possibly installed on the Mac Pro . . . at the end of the short install there was an error window; "This software may be out of date, you should upgrade to the latest combo update, even if you have already done so . . ." I ran Software update, and a couple items were there, along with Security Update 2013-004, which I never upgraded because at the time I had the non-EFI boot install of Linux Mint in the third partition, and doing any upgrades broke GRUB . . . went through the items then and nothing looked too relevant.
So, I rifled through a few of the PPC items that I have cloned in the Ext HD to test out to see if Rosetta showed up . . . hard to know on the face of it. In the 10.6.8 partition I already have Appleworks installed, so any of my .cwk docs I could open with that. But, Otto Matic launched I ran a couple minutes of it . . . don't know if that's because of Rosetta or from Classic . . . nothing "opened" and said anything about "thanks to Rosetta you are playing this game" . . . ??
I have the Combo 10.6.8 dmg file from 2011 stored in the computer, so I could "re-install" it if that would bring in something newer for Rosetta . . . generally my major concern was for a number of articles, docs, and CVs that I originally did in AW . . . but, I can get them via Classic in 10.6 . . . . Ugh, I forgot about checking to see if the 10 years of email correspondence could be accessed . . . a lot of **brilliant** conversations are stored there, that perhaps at some point I'd want to review for some project.
And, a lot of jpg photos, which I guess could be imported into the Intel world . . . . But, what didn't work and something I might want to use is EPSON scan and some other EPSON app didn't launch via the 10.6 MBPro . . . possibly because it wasn't officially installed in the MBPro? The Dock icon bounced and then disappeared . . . .
The recent plan was to use the PM to connect to an old scanner that has a photo jig that holds film and scans it into the computer . . . the scanner is from 10.1 days . . . haven't tried to install it into the MPro . . . might be cheaper to buy a new scanner, but I hate wasting stuff . . . too much . . . never enough time to do it all.
Final note, after the install I ran "rosetta.pkg" in Spotlight and it said "nothing found" . . . is there anything to "find" with Rosetta? Nothing shows in Apps . . . is this a commandline app like Applejack???
