Unfortunately EMILE did not boot the emulated Mac IIx or Mac IIci in
MAME/MESS. This resulted in a sad mac (0000000F 00000002):
$ pramutil -f ~/.sdlmess/nvram/maciix/rtc --boot-slot e --boot-slotrsrc 254
$ sdlmess -ramsize 8M maciix -nbe image -disk boot-2.6.18-mac_0.12.bin
$ pramutil -f ~/.sdlmess/nvram/maciici/rtc --boot-slot e --boot-slotrsrc 254
$ sdlmess -ramsize 16M maciici -nbe image -disk boot-2.6.18-mac_0.12.bin
Both of these emulated machines were able to boot to the desktop using a
System 7 disk image.
I didn't test EMILE on the emulated LC III as I can't make that machine
load any media at all, so I can't get past the flashing question mark.
