Hi,

 

My motherboard is GA-FX990-UD5 Rev1.0, my CPU is the FX-8320.

 

I managed to install Mavericks 10.9.1 and upgraded to 10.9.2, used the latest BSA_Kernel from download area, installed vmware tools, had to replace the sandbox.kext and system.kext with the original 10.9.1 version due to the opemu ud2 error, installed the SVGA II, installed the ps2 kext to get mouse and keyboard input working in the vmware console.

 

I currently have two issues:

 

1) I have to assign all 8 cores to the VM otherwise I have kernel panic, where in fact from what I observe, only one core is really being used, is it due to the modified kernel I am using?

2) I get nothing displayed in Safari, no error message in Safari, just blank, like nothing happened; my network connection is good, DNS is working, no firewall, so very strange. I looked at the console, it says sandbox.kext has an error. Is it because I had to replace the sandbox.kext due to the opemu ud2 error?

 

 

Any input is appreciated.

 

On the same machine, I also have a 10.7.2 Lion, with corresponding AMD kernel, I only have to assign 4 cores and I can see all four cores are working. No Safari issue; but of course I didn't have to replace the sandbox.kext or system.kext either.


Correction for point 2 above, the exact error code in the console for Safari display issue is:

 

com.apple.WebKit.WebContent: com.apple.WebKit.WebContent: Couldn't enable sandbox style file quarantine: -2

com.apple.launchd: (com.apple.WebKit.WebContent.99871EEB-2502-4E68-B914-92B0173C54DB[301]) Exited with code: 77

 

When I open up App Store, nothing get displayed either.

Thanks for letting me know. I had thought this falls into the virtualization category. I guess I would have to make a new post there? I hope I won't be accused for double posting?

You posted about the issues in another topic http://www.insanelym...on-esxi-server/. Would you go back to it and attach a copy of your vmware.log file please? Some AMD CPUS can be used directly in VMware with CPUID masking.

Donk, you are right I am participating in that topic as well. However the only reason I started a new one is that in this case I am not using the unlocker and I am not using the code suggested there. With the approach I am taking now it is totally different scenario in my opinion as I am now using a patched AMD kernel as I described.

 

I didn't want to hijack that thread, hence I started a new one. Let me know if my understanding is correct. Whatever works better for everyone I will follow.

 

To provide the information (the vmware log file) for the other thread, I need to re-install the unlock file where I just encountered a bit of issue and I am looking for bit of guidance in this thread:

No you don't need to add the unlocker again, just send a vmware.log file for any OS X guest. I am trying to track down what is viable for AMD without modified kernels. I have some working ones, but I wanted one that failed hence the request. Would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Thanks. I will do that tonight.

 

Any suggestion on my two points there?
