VirtualPC no luck.... kernel failure and crash.
VMware only function if the cpu also supports sse2

Maybe somebody tried 'only' qemu (has capability to emulate sse2)?

i tried qemu... no luck. it just locks qemu up and you have to force quit it.

You can create an ISO image file with Nero (Windows) or cdrecord (GNU/Linux) then load it as a virtual CD-ROM drive from VMWare and mount it in the Darwin command line with mount -t cd9660 <device> <mountpoint>.

I don't know about any AMD PCNET network card (the one that VMWare emulates) driver for Darwin, so currently networking with Darwin under VMWare is impossible, as far as I know.

I try this:

mount -t cd9660 /dev/disks1 /mnt

and I get:

mount_cd9660 no such file or directory

I didn't make it, just downloaded it, it's a darwin instal, the ISO isn't included and it doesn't appear to give a file size anywhere.

Dude, your guest OS is Windows XP Pro you set up VMware incorrectly!


Can you even read?
I DIDN'T MAKE THE VIRTUAL MACHINE, I DOWNLODED IT.

Anyway, you can set the guest OS as whatever the fk you like aslong as you set the HDD to IDE ...

I try this:

mount -t cd9660 /dev/disks1 /mnt

and I get:

mount_cd9660 no such file or directory

???

:)
Probably, there are no mount_cd9660 command.
Try issue which mount_cd9660 first.

I was doing it the wrong way. which mount_cd9660 is ok.

Now I have tried:

mount -t cd9660 /dev/disk1s0 /mnt/cdrom

but I get this:

mount: realpath /mnt: No such path or directory

should I create /mnt ? How ?

thx,

Yes, of course
mkdir /mnt
or you may choose another name, for example /cdrom, like in FreeBSD :twisted:
Do not forget substitute proper folder to mount utility.
And you may use mount_cd9660 directly:
mount_cd9660 /dev/diskXsY /somedir

I got it !!! :-)

from the main directory:

mkdir mnt
mkdir mnt/cdrom

mount -t cd9660 /dev/disk1s0 /mnt/cdrom

no errors, and then I do a

cd /mnt/cdrom
ls -l

and the ISO (built with ultraiso) is there!!! :-)

Now lets see if I can upgrade to 8.1 ;-)

Hopefully this may be of help to others :-)

Yes, you can, see:
http://wiki.opendarw...x.php/Main_Page
http://www.osx86.cla...x.php/Main_Page :)
http://darwinsource.opendarwin.org/
script for building darwin: http://darwinsource....rg/darwinbuild/ or "there's a premade 8.1 package with an installer script":
http://www.rejgond.c...1to8.1.0.tar.gz from this guide http://grabberslashe...-ip.com/macosx/

Generally, first you need download 8.1 sources from http://darwinsource....win.org/10.4.1/

I can`t do it (for) myself, because a have no sse2 processor :)
but before I successfuly compiled darwin 7.9 from src on my AthlonXP
