CodeWarrior on minivmac

Has anyone gotten a version of CW to run on minivmac?  I was just messing around with it, but on CW4 Gold, I get an illegal instruction on launch.  I haven't tried on an actual Plus (or any physical 68000 for that matter), so I'm not sure if it's minivmac not implementing something or if CW just doesn't support the 68000.

Re: CodeWarrior on minivmac

I'll bet it's the latter, I take it you've got a debugger running in minivmac already? When was your rev released and when was the product release? At around the intro of the Epson Color Stylus, 68000 vs. 68030(?) code support was nebulous. The driver installers for the ECS didn't say that Epson didn't support the 68000, but such was indeed the case when I called them.

But I got around the unimplemented trap error so it would work with my PowerBook 100 just fine!

Re: CodeWarrior on minivmac

Yeah, it looks like it not only doesn't work on 68000's, it requires newer ROMs (presumably something with slotmanager).  I tried it on my pb100, got the illegal instruction I got on minivmac.  I compiled minivmac with -em-cpu 2 to emulate a 68020 in a Plus, and got further, but hit an unimplemented trap.  So compiled it with -m II -em-cpu 2 to emulate a Mac II, used a IIx ROM, and CW was able to launch just fine.

Slot Manager, Color QuickDraw or both?
