View Full Version : Journalized File System, Panther, and Classic

Has anyone managed to install Classic on a Panther system with the journalized file system? When I try, OS9.22 tells me that it cannot find a volume on which it can install OS9 ...

I haven't tried that yet but will do so this weekend on an iBook I've got to set up.
What happens if you turn journaling off and then try to install Classic?

Well since it is a journalized file system, I am not sure if there is a way to turn it off without reformatting the hard drive .... which is not an option at this point.

Journaling is not a format option, it's a file system option, which can be manually disabled (turned off) at any time, or re-enabled whenever you like, no reformat of the drive or volume needed.
All you have to do is turn journaling off, in your Disk Utility. Select the volume that you want to change, go to the file menu, and choose disable journaling, and there you are! recommend you re-enable journaling, once you are done with OS 9, as journaling enabled, also allows Darwin to run background optimizing routines on the OS X boot volume....

That is really good to know. I got the app I needed running in Virtual PC, so I don't need classic anymore, but it is still nice to know how to do it (other people will have this problem in my company).

classic is emminantly 'moveable' in that you can install it on one machine, copy the system folder and apps folder and dump them on another machine and unless they are drasticly diffarent (laptop vs g5) is hsould run. it will ask you to update but otherwise should run fine.
thats how I have been installing it in panther.
