As far as I know you would need to compile qemu for OSX on the hosts itself or another Mac. However qemu is supported on that platform. I asked the author earlier about what is needed for this patch on other platforms and opengl was the main requirement.

I would try building from source with 3dfx patch and see if it works.

wiki.qemu.org/Host/Mac
Has more details.

Oh, many thanks - that's a project for another weekend then. This weekend I have other ideas 😉

It did not work because it complains about a pkg-config link, even though I added pkg-config through homebrew ?

This link discusses that error, not sure if it will help but does have some instructions for resolving that issue:

export PKG_CONFIG=/path/to/pkg-config

Good luck, I hope that helps.

Actually it didn't. But thanks anyway. Here's the error:

ERROR: sizeof(size_t) doesn't match GLIB_SIZEOF_SIZE_T.
You probably need to set PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR
to point to the right pkg-config files for your
build target

when I do a 'which pkg-config', mac terminal returns /usr/local/bin/pkg-config. However what it wants is apparently the libraries. (Sorry, I don't know much about compiling stuff).

also, "echo $PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR" returns empty.

Looks like you need to set $PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR as well.

Also could be gcc version. Or qemu version. Try compiling an older version 4.x and see if that gives the same error.

I was using 4.1.1 and 4.2.0 when I had this error. To set $PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR, I need to know where they are (the libraries) and I don’t know.
