  1. macOS-Simple-KVM A quick way to set up a macOS VM in QEMU, accelerated by Linux's KVM. Documentation to get started is on the Github page, although feel free to ask any questions here as well. https://github.com/foxlet/macOS-Simple-KVM

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    R9 270x acceleration still works under Catalina.

    On desktop and ready to go!

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    And... booted on Ryzen (through KVM)! https://github.com/foxlet/macOS-Simple-KVM/tree/catalina
  5. Video Playback is fine with Safari and Chrome using a Ryzen 5 paired with an R9 270x, so any video issues would probably be caused either by the CPU or GPU pairing.
  6. 32-bit apps won't work without OPEMU (handling SYSENTER), but TextWangler's replacement BBEdit is 64-bit compatible.
  7. Apple Services (NSNetwork) are now working on Ryzen (but still in testing)! Some Geekbench results on the test kernel for those interested. https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/11361120 https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/compute/3416827
  8. I would suggest using AptioMemoryFix (from AptioFixPKG), the latest Clover, and VirtualSMC.kext + Lilu.kext, as FakeSMC didn't pass DSMOS on some of my test machines. If you're using my kernel and get a yellow/black screen, make sure to get b5 or newer (has graphics fix).
  9. Hello InsanelyMac (now with fixed graphics)!
  10. Hello Mojave (on Ryzen so far)! Mojave Minimal Kernel (AMD) Latest: https://gist.github.com/foxlet/335ade0f80937eacf4765dd0d3bd40f2/raw/3a78c21b8f5afcf1f20eaec253b7559d4e9e6c18/foxlet-bits-b7.zip Source: https://github.com/foxlet/minimal-amd-xnu All Builds: https://gist.github.com/foxlet/335ade0f80937eacf4765dd0d3bd40f2
  11. For those still following along, I have updated the tool to support both beta and final builds of macOS Mojave (10.14). Yes, this does mean one can download 10.14 Developer Previews without a developer account.

    Dual Monitor Setup Not Working

    It seems I have encountered the same issue under macOS 17A365 with a Radeon R9 270x, although my desktop remains on its own screen and the secondary display draws pure black. It's a regression from macOS Sierra where the second monitor worked properly.
  13. I have included a preview copy of the tool. Note that on Windows and Linux platforms, there is a need to decompress the packages separately. Usage: fetch-macos.py [OPTIONS] Options: -o, --output-dir TEXT Target directory for package output. -c, --catalog-id TEXT Name of catalog. -p, --product-id TEXT Product ID (as seen in SoftwareUpdate). -l, --latest Get latest available macOS package. --help Show this message and exit.
  14. FetchMacOS - A tool to download macOS on non-Mac platforms. A few months ago I was playing around with the idea of looking at Apple's new distribution method for the macOS Installer (in the A/B test that delivers either a complete app bundle, or a 7MB stub that downloads the rest separately). Since it seemed to use the existing swdist distribution server, I decided to use some older code to write a client that emulates the 7MB macOS Installer and fetches the installation data from Apple's servers. It works on Linux and Windows, and is probably the closest thing to a clean copy of macOS without involving an actual Mac or the App Store. This thread is just to garner some opinions on the idea, and maybe adding some improvements (such as including createinstallmedia logic to make installation drives from the data) before making a wider release.
