Notes for the Macintosh release
Last updated at 2:14 pm UTC on 16 January 2006
Please add notes to the Macintosh release...

Most of the build and change notes for the Vm can be found in SVN directory. Look for the highest number release notes, they are accumulative logs.

To use the 68K VMs for Squeak 2.3 or above, you must have CFM-68K. It was included in MacOS 8.0 or later, but not before. You can get it from Apple at ftp://ftp.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/CFM-68K/ {Broken link, google is your friend, your're on your own to hunt for these disk images}

To use Sockets in Squeak 2.8 [[you]] must have Open Transport 1.1.2 or better installed. It can be downloaded from


(The 68K version of Squeak still used the older buggy MacTCP)

If you download the .sea file and it refuses to open, giving a -39 error (which means premature end of file), you can drag and drop it on Stuffit Expander and it will unstuff properly. – Chris Johnson

Carbon VMs before 3.2.1 will have problems dealing with image files that lose their file type (STim) and creator (FAST).

Classic VMs from 3.2.1 to 3.2.6b6 will stop working after upwards of 19.88 hours from the time you booted the machine. To avoid this problem you must using the 3.2.6b8 VM which btw includes both the os-x carbon version(3.2.6b8) and the classic version(3.2.6b7)
