I'm guessing the Office System demo you gave was also greatly cut down.

Still, looks like your efforts paid off :)

The event was exhausting. I got to catch up with a bunch of Apple friends I hadn't seen in decades.
Disappointed that they barely mentioned the source release at all. The mention that was made was
added at the last minute.

Here's another tidbit I saw in source-PROFILE.TEXT

(*Drive types*)
T_Profile = 0;
T_Seagate = 1;
T_Widget  = 2;

if (discsize <= 9728) or (discsize > 30000)
then drivetype:= T_Profile (* set drivetype to profile *)
if drivetype <> 0 then
begin (*widget*)
  remap_interleave := false;
  rvrs_hdr:=20; (*headers are at end of sector*)
begin (*Seagate*)
  drivetype:=T_Seagate;(*10mb seagate*)

(I cut some lines out of this code). So if the disk is exactly 5mb, or over 15mb use the Profile driver. If it's a Widget use that driver, otherwise use the 10MB Seagate (10mb profile??) driver.

AppleNet is between 27:15 to 29:35 if anyone's in a hurry, but he goes on to talk about LocalTalk and continues from there through the G5 and beyond. Thanks for the link!

Nice to see you here, friend! I did join this forum at your suggestion, so thanks again for directing me. Seems perfect for a geek with a newfound appreciation for the Lisa  ;D

Howdy! As long as you're here, you might want to try asking your question about the sick Widget in a new thread, as there are more proficient experts here than me. I hope it's improving...

In the absence of other volunteers, I have forked the repo here and have made a few commits this morning to fix the MacOS build script for MacOS 11+. The GTK build works, too, but there's some additional requirements that aren't documented. I'll try and update the README later with those changes. I'd like to ensure project work isn't split across multiple forks, so this can be a true community effort, if desired. If the repo should live somewhere else just let me know.

[edit] something seems to be missing (even if a floppy image is inserted). we may consider romless boot to floppy non functionnal now (fixable but needs work).

That was my experience, too.

I forked LisaEm over here ( and documented the issue in BUGS.txt. Also added support for wxWidgets 3.2.1 and fixed the MacOS X build script. Need to look into the split ROM issue, or at least document how to combine them into a single file.

Ray's dev branch has some changes in ProFile code for LOS 2.0, but I'm not sure how functional it is.
