  1. Donk, Here's another wierdness.. Even with Caffeine, I sometimes get a hang. Any ideas?

  2. Hi, Donk, Here's another one... I want to attach my iPod Touch to the VM. When I attach it to the VMWare server host, I can't tell if it's connected or not (I assume that if it's working ok, iTunes would pop up). I tried firing up the USB Prober app, but I'm not savvy enough to determine whether the device is attached or not. Attached is my vmx and a snip of the vmware.log that shows me plugging in the device, removing it and plugging it back in. (zip) If there's another way to detect that it's attached, please let me know. Thanks!

  3. Caffeine has been working for me so far... none of those odd hangs. Great recommendation. Also, I changed the keyboard.vusb.enable to "FALSE" and no intermittent sticky key repeats since then. Followed the instructions to modify the Boot.plist for a larger screen - worked as written. Awesome job, Donk! RJ
  4. Good call on Caffeine 1.0.4, I'll try that and let you know what happens. There's some oddness sometimes with keyboard repeating (appears as if a key's stuck), but I'll have to watch for it to happen and capture some logs. Thanks again for the awesome effort, Donk!

  5. Whew! I finally got MacOS X on a VM - Thank you so much, Donk! I ended up pulling the monitor.* lines in the VMX file and reinstalling MacOS X on the vhd. I've been able to update to 10.5.7, but every so often it hangs and I get these: Where it says "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button for several seconds or press the Restart button." Ideas as to how I should diagnose this one?
  6. A follow up... I was able to get into a place to hit F8 and then -v to get a verbose boot. It appears to be hanging, repeating lines like this VMWare[0x44580b00]::joinPMtree - could not find the hub device ... (a few of those, then a bunch of...) localhost com.apple.launcd[1] (com.apple.SystemStarter): Failed to count the number of files in "/System/Library/StartupItems": No such file or directory Seems like a USB issue? Here are my additions/changes to the .vmx file: guestOS = "darwin-64" ich7m.present = "TRUE" smc.present = "FALSE" keyboard.vusb.enable = "TRUE" mouse.vusb.enable = "TRUE" monitor.virtual_exec = "hardware" monitor.virtual_mmu = "software" Any ideas? Thanks! - RJ
  7. Donk, Awesome to see this! Excitedly, I gave it a try. I have a Intel Core2Duo E8200 machine running VistaBusiness x64 with VMWare Server 2.0.1 on it. Using the VMware-guest64check-6.0.0-45731.exe, it says I'm x64 capable. I installed 10.5.6 on a 20GB partition (note: I had to make Disk Utility use a Guid Partition Table instead of the default) and it looked like it was working. It starts up and sits at the startup screen with the Apple icon with the spinner animating, but that's it. What should I do to debug? (also, how do I emulate the command-v on startup to get a verbose boot?) Thanks so much! RJ
  8. Yeah, it's odd... works on my AMD Athlon 3700+ Windows7b machine (but trying to run XCode reboots it!) and not on any of my Vista (intel, x32, x64) desktops... but works on my intel x32 thinkpad. That's really odd. Xelabo and TopoX - thanks for the impressive effort!
  9. I'm using VMWare Workstation 6.5.1 build 126130 on Vista X64 with 8gb ram, using this 10.5.5 image, given 1572mb ram, booting with -v just sits repeating: crash using uid: 0 gid:0, euid:0 egid: 0 [date] localhost ReportCrash[85]: Saved crashreport to /Library/Logs/Crashreporter/configd_[date]_locahost Right after CODE SIGNING: cs_invalid_page: p=33[loginwindow] clearing CS_VALID CODE SIGNING: cs_invalid_page: p=31pmds] clearing CS_VALID [date] localhost DirectoryService[42]: Launched version 5.5 (v514.23) [date] localhost /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/MacOS/loginwindow[33]: Login Window Application Started [date] localhost DirectoryService[42]: Unable to create DirectoryService store for SystemConfiguration registration for NetworkNotification Ideas?
