VirtualPC no luck.... kernel failure and crash.

VMware only function if the cpu also supports sse2

 

Maybe somebody tried 'only' qemu (has capability to emulate sse2)?

You can create an ISO image file with Nero (Windows) or cdrecord (GNU/Linux) then load it as a virtual CD-ROM drive from VMWare and mount it in the Darwin command line with mount -t cd9660 <device> <mountpoint>.

I don't know about any AMD PCNET network card (the one that VMWare emulates) driver for Darwin, so currently networking with Darwin under VMWare is impossible, as far as I know.

I try this:

 

mount -t cd9660 /dev/disks1 /mnt

 

and I get:

 

mount_cd9660 no such file or directory

 

???

Dude, your guest OS is Windows XP Pro you set up VMware incorrectly!

 

Can you even read?

I DIDN'T MAKE THE VIRTUAL MACHINE, I DOWNLODED IT.

 

Anyway, you can set the guest OS as whatever the fk you like aslong as you set the HDD to IDE ...

:)

Probably, there are no mount_cd9660 command.

Try issue which mount_cd9660 first.

I was doing it the wrong way. which mount_cd9660 is ok.

 

Now I have tried:

 

mount -t cd9660 /dev/disk1s0 /mnt/cdrom

 

but I get this:

 

mount: realpath /mnt: No such path or directory

 

should I create /mnt ? How ?

 

thx,

Yes, of course

mkdir /mnt

or you may choose another name, for example /cdrom, like in FreeBSD :twisted:

Do not forget substitute proper folder to mount utility.

And you may use mount_cd9660 directly:

mount_cd9660 /dev/diskXsY /somedir

I got it !!! :-)

 

from the main directory:

 

mkdir mnt

mkdir mnt/cdrom

 

mount -t cd9660 /dev/disk1s0 /mnt/cdrom

 

no errors, and then I do a

 

cd /mnt/cdrom

ls -l

 

and the ISO (built with ultraiso) is there!!! :-)

 

Now lets see if I can upgrade to 8.1 ;-)

 

Hopefully this may be of help to others :-)

Yes, you can, see:

http://wiki.opendarwin.org/index.php/Main_Page

http://www.osx86.classicbeta.com/wiki/inde...x.php/Main_Page :)

http://darwinsource.opendarwin.org/

script for building darwin: http://darwinsource.opendarwin.org/darwinbuild/ or "there's a premade 8.1 package with an installer script":

http://www.rejgond.com/Darwin-8.0.1to8.1.0.tar.gz from this guide http://grabberslasher.no-ip.com/macosx/

 

Generally, first you need download 8.1 sources from http://darwinsource.opendarwin.org/10.4.1/

 

I can`t do it (for) myself, because a have no sse2 processor :)

but before I successfuly compiled darwin 7.9 from src on my AthlonXP

Fantastic! :) That hardware you use?

Did you recompiled sources by hand or used Darwin-8.0.1to8.1.0.tar.gz?

I used Darwin-8.0.1to8.1.0.tar.gz on a ISO file, copied to a temp directory and run script :-)

 

Amazing...

Lucky :wink:

Why vmware? You wan`t to get it in on real PC?

It seems to me, is easier to get it running @vm with pearpc.

 

P.S.: a can't get it for now, because there are no places near me, there I cat get ASUS A8N-SLI Premium mobo :)

I will try to play with qemu 0.7 to build sse2less darwin :wink:
