luckily I posted all important steps in here. :sorcerer:
so I have a new Hard Disk and just made a new Live/Install DVD
:D
the instructions are all ok, but if someone is willing to work on BOOTCD ramdisk please -
I have to say the hex hardlinks I posted above are not working :-(
The Ramdisk is working fine but I wasn`t able to link my desktop to the ramdisk.
An alias is working but if I try to make a new folder on Desktop, Finder crashes.

mobdin... i'm having some trouble.

i used to hdiutil attach lalala.iso -readwrite
i moved all the folders you said, clicking don't replace for all of the ones that already exist, and edit all the files you said to and the dvd size remains the same as before?

also when i try use the image in vmware it loads the desktop (without dock or finder) and the rainbow pinwheel just keeps spinning.

what am i doing wrong?!?!? :S

the dvd size is ok it is only a container, but the free space inside will be reduced.
did you put finder,dock and systemuiserver in rc.cdrom?
I guess not,but you can use my version of rc.cdrom it is in one of the downloads.
but I can post the latest version of it if you need.
does it mount your hd and dvd?
is the pinwheel spinning for ever and can you move it ?
some more details please.
good to hear that someone is working on the stuff.
btw which version 10.4.4?

hey mobdin, i'm using 10.4.4-5 myzar image. i edited rc.cdrom and put finder and dock in but not systemuiserver i think. i'll try using your version of rc.cdrom.
I can move the pinwheel it just never loads os x.
I don't know if it mounts my hd and dvd yet seeing as i haven't been able to get to the desktop. I'm going to try later and see if using your rc.cdrom will fix things :P


i'm hoping for a rainy weekend so i can stuff around with it some more.

I`m using the same 10.4.4-5 myzar.
so it should work.
maybe try to install without the 10.4.5 update and paste the stuff in, cause the install dvd is version 10.4.4.
but if i remember correctly it should also work with 10.4.5.
always boot with -v to see the error messages.
anyway here is the latest version of my rc.cdrom and a screenshot of the new licence agreement
i used the one fravia made. :blink:

mobdin, it seems like people are interested in this live dvd.... but I think the main reason no one is doing anything is because your instructions are all over the place.

i think that you would get a whole heap of people into it by creating a ppf that people can just apply on the dvd. I don't know if that would be legal or not. still you could do that or you could get ALL of your instructions and files and make a tutorial/guide type of thing. put everything in order so that people can follow the instructions more carefully.

BTW, i'm reinstalling 10.4.5.

I plan to give it a try using the JaS 10.4.7 install DVD. My system is an IBM ThinkCentre (8183) which runs SuSE Linux 10.1 on one primary partition and OSX86 JaS 10.4.6 on the other. The System Profiler says:

I have ordered an external firewire disk enclosure to hold a spare 160GB HDD and a fresh install of JaS 10.4.7. Will see what happens and let you know.

Now, to expose my ignorant noob status with OS X. I could use some pointers to information on creating CD/DVD images that are bootable on non-apple intel systems.

I have been able to open the JaS ISO image I downlaoded, modify it and have it bootable after burning it to a DVD-RW. However, when I tried making copies of the image or making an image from scratch they would not boot. I know it is possable to create hybred disk images for MAC/PC. I just have no idea how to do it.

I would appreciate it if someone could point me to the correct book/how-to to get me started.

why do you need to create your own image?

Partly for the same reason that people climb things - because it's there - to know - for the satisfaction of having done it - etc..

Also, I have a CD that's bootable on a real-Apple-intel system but not my non-Apple-intel system and I want to see if I can convert it.

mobdin, it seems like people are interested in this live dvd.... but I think the main reason no one is doing anything is because your instructions are all over the place.

my instructions are in most every download as a txt file the last one on page 2
but here is the link again
http://rapidshare.de...update.rar.html
but charles ramdisk hardlinks are not working maby you can create them using the ln -s command in terminal.
I will upload detailed instructions when I have some free time, but real life is also there. :)
When I get my smb sharing fixed I will make a 10.4.7 live/install dvd.
@BladeRunner
@Dragon "modbin not mobdin"
It is really easy to do,just a lot of pasting stuff and clicking hundreds of times continue or do not replace.
It will take about 15-20min maybe 30.
use the latest rc.cdrom I posted just before the TA post of dragon.

greets,
modbin

Hi BladeRunner - which version?


I purchased a copy of CopyCatX V3.5 for Intel without thinking about the non-apple aspect.

While they are willing to provide a refund if I return the CD, I would rather make it work if I am able.

The instructions that are posted allows you to have a working 10.4.6 live dvd. the only problem is that it doesn't have any ramdisk code so that you can store files. it can run applications too.

I haven't tested it yet because I have 10.4.7 installed and to copy the files from my install to the dvd I need the same version dvd :S

Why don't you try it and tell us what happens?

There are many ramdisks to store files on for ex desktop.
I also made a global ramdisk like in bootcd, but the symlinks I made are not working atm.

maybe someone is able to create a working symlink in /private/var/root whitch is called Desktop and points to /private/etc/RamDisk/Contents/Desktop
alias is not working, we need a symlink.

what code?
the dvd isn't open source... it's just been edited to run as a live dvd.

if you are looking to download an image of osx86, search the regular places.

you will have to patch it yourself using MODBIN's instructions. please read the whole thread before posting questions like that!!!

you could get the source to the 10.4.7 kernel if that's what you are after... it's located on the apple website, http://www.opensourc...rce/10.4.7.x86/
