In Topic: Using a minimal installation of Linux to run OS X on a VM

19 February 2013 - 11:01 AM

Hi everyone,

so, using VirtualBox it works.
For headless setup I used phpVirtualBox ( link ).
Setup is easy using apt and it is working properly.

[Update 03/01/13]
I played around with XEN 4.1.2 and 4.2.1 without success.
So I'll build my Linux VM Setup using VirtualBox.

On the VirtualBox forums I found some Guest Additions stuff which can be used:
Base guest additions:
Audio driver:

On the guest additions thread I posted the reference to the vmware-svga driver, which originated in this forum. Perhaps it is possible to use some of that code on VBox as well. All 3 approaches combined could provide a nearly complete set of guest additions for OS X.

Hi everyone,

sorry for bringing this thread back to top, but I am working on this scenario right now.

The best way for OS X virtualization on non Apple Hardware would be running VMWare ESXi with DirectPath.
I read on the web that running an OS X VM with a GeForce card piped through DirectPath works properly including QE & CI.

Although I am going to test OS X on a Debian 7 + VirtualBox headless environment in the next few days.

I'll post my progress here.

I have to correct myself, it wasn't VMWare ESXi, it was on a Debian + XEN Setup:
