This VM however crashes with the PBE image (MacOS). It works with the latest squeakvm (non-cog) though. I think, as a minimal-effort patch, it would be good to have the PBE website refer to squeakvm.org and clearly indicate that to run the PBE image a non-cog VM should be used. Idem on the pharoproject website.

The image used for the book is very old and does not have the cog related patches...

The easiest would be to make a one-click with old vms for the book.
Or we would need to find out (remember) exactly which patch is needed...
