Creating a VMware image that has Chameleon installed on it

I'm trying to make a generic VMDK for anyone to use that will have Chameleon 2.0 pre-installed on it.


I created a virtual machine and I install Darwin x86 8.0.1 on it.

The host name is


and the drive label is



I created a user named Main with admin privileges with the home directory as



After this I downloaded Chameleon-2.0-RC4-r684-bin.tar.gz on it and I untarred it.

Following this I typed in

cd Chameleon-2.0-RC4-r684-bin.tar.gz/i386

I then followed these instructions here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=164809

Because Darwin does not have "diskutil" I assumed that I could just use /dev/rdisk0 for

fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0

and I got "device busy".

I assumed that this was because I was running this on the disk that had Darwin installed on it so I connected it to another virtual machine that was also running Darwin 8.0.1 and tried

fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk1

after using

cd /Volumes/Disk/Users/Main/Chameleon-2.0-RC4-r684-bin/i386

and I got the same message.


Does anyone know how I can fix this using Darwin 8.0.1?
