Hi all,

hopefully a quick one but something I have been trying to configure for some time.

In short, installed OSX 10.6 in VMware without any major issues. I am now at the point of trying to configure graphics but I am a bit lost as to what to expect and what to do.

To start with I installed VMsvga2_v1.2.4_OS_10.6-7.pkg drivers and I had no issues after reboot.
Enabled 3D accelaration in VMWare, also no issues.

Tried various options in vmx and Boot.plist but none gives me expected 3D performance.

Is there a clear guide on how to set this aspect up?
Also, what is the best way of confirming it is working? In my case FrontRow gives blank screen, QuickTime no error but nothing else (doesn't load) and DVD player starts but shows error about no compatible device being found (which from what I read is expected). Any other ways of confirming 3D acceleration is in place?

Many many thanks in advance.

Two days later I have to admit I am starting to think the question was too hard (or too stupid)... :|
