PearPC Nightly Builds
This page provides resources for PearPC, the PowerPC emulator for Windows and Linux, currently
able to run Mac OSX!
Herein lies the nightly builds of PearPC I'm generating for Windows (Linux maybe soon
to follow). These are UNSUPPORTED, may steal your wife, wet on the floor, etc. Try at
your own risk :-)
If a build is out of date, it's probably because ether CVS is broken, or my build
scripts aren't working. If it gets more than 3 days old, send a mail to pearpc AT
richardgoodwin d o t com.
Note that these are all JIT builds, not the generic CPU which I find too slow
for regular use. Unless otherwise noted, they contain only the straight CVS code, so if
a new patch (for new capabilities like screen management, etc) hasn't been accepted, it
WON'T be in these builds.
Why isn't X,Y, or Z patch included: I build off of CVS, so if a patch isn't in there
it's not my fault :-) If it's not in the changelog, it's not going to be in the
normal CVS builds.
There is a bug/problem with the build: Again, I build straight off
CVS, so it's fairly unlikely that the bug is related to build my process. If the
binary gets uploaded, that means the build succeeded and the bug is almost certainly
in the actual code.
Why isn't there an [insert some obscure CPU here] build of [some
version]?: The devs and many users have stated that the optimized versions
are not that much faster, if any. Unless I see some real performance numbers I'm not
going to expand the build configs and may even drop the P4/AthlonXP.
