In Topic: SnowKitty running on VMware Workstation

08 February 2010 - 05:08 PM

I am using the "freebsd-64" route with VMWare player 2.5.3 build-185404.

It boots up fine but I got stuck at the Welcome screen without working mouse. I used the following config in my vmx file.
Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Do I actually need ps/2 keyboard and mouse on my host? Currently the mouse/keyboard hardware are USB on the host.

The "darwin10-64" route doesn't work because the VMWare Player does not support it yet.

Any help is appreciated.


I had the same issue with keyboard only and no mouse. I deleted the ApplePS2controller and ACPIPS2Nub kexts, then installed the VoodooPS2Controller-0.98-installer.pkg onto the “Snow” HD. I did not have to edit my original Leopard10.5.5 VMX configuration. I have a Core2Duo T5200 CPU without VT-x. It is sluggish but working following Zenith432’s guide. Successful Snow Leopard 10.6 on a non-VT-x, running Vmware7.0 on Windows7.

It is working at 1400x900 but periodically, I get panic kernels at startup and at shut down. After a few reboots, it seems to be fine. Any remedy ideas you could suggest? Thanks.

Update: Just followed the link above by Dong and used the 10/28/09 RadeonHD.kext. Full 1440x900 without panics.
Thanks Dong.

Does it work with native 1440x900 - 17 inches (16:9) - DELL 9400/E1705?
Cant try now!

Confirmed working at 1400x900 on Inspiron9400 with ATI X1400. I just installed iAtkos v7 and installed the two kexts mentioned above. By the way, great work by the author of the modified kexts! I did notice some mouse tearing. The fix is to install "Mouse Locator v 1.1". Just follow this link for instructions and downloads: (http://silvertang.si.../mousetear.html). Don't forget to place the MouseLocator.png file in your pictures folder. Good luck.
