FYI, Successfully installed OS 10.8.3 under Workstation 9.0.2.

Just for expanded confirmation of Zenith432's post, OS X 10.8.3 update was released 14th March 2013, and successfully installed under both ESXi 5.1 and Workstation 9.0.2 using both the downloaded combo update and software update in OS X.

Has anyone lost sound in 10.8.3 under workstation 9.0.0? Everything was working perfectly but after the update my sound has gone and there are no output devices listed. This is on a Dell Inspiron 5520 and the sound card on all other vms comes up as a Conexant Smartaudio H. It worked on 10.8.1 but updating to 10.8.3 it has disappeared.

 

Also what is the correct version of darwin.iso to use as I have several up to 5.0 but i'm getting errors when running 5.0 although after a reboot the screen resolutions are all present so vmware tools is installing.

 

Edited to add i've uninstalled vmware tools and reinstalled using darwin.iso version 5.0 and installed fine. I then installed ensoniq audio 1.03 and rebooted and still no output devices in sound preferences.

 

Any ideas?

You should set
sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio"

in VMX file and use AppleHDA. I stopped maintaining EnsoniqAudioPCI since OS 10.7/Workstation 8 - when they added HDA support.

Thanks Zenith however the vmx file is set to that. Don't know if it using AppleHDA, surely it would have been before I installed ensoniq audio?

 

Audio part of vmx file:

 

sound.present = "TRUE"

sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio"

sound.fileName = "Speakers (Conexant SmartAudio H"

sound.autodetect = "FALSE"

 

This is the same on all my vms where the sound is working fine.

Then you don't need EnsoniqAudioPCI. That's only loaded if sound.virtualdev = "es1371".

 

On another subject - Fusion 5.0.3 - The darwin.iso in there is byte-for-byte identical to darwin.iso from Fusion 5.0.2, so there's no need to reinstall it.

So if everything is set correctly in the vmx file where else can I look to troubleshoot? AppleHDA not loading for some reason?

 

Also the darwin.iso I have is 5.0.0 so will there be any benefit trying 5.0.3?

 

Edit to add i've gone back to 10.8.1 via a snapshot and everything is working fine. I'll stay on this for now unless there is an easy fix for the audio issue i'm experiencing on 10.8.3

____________________________________________________________

 

So far so good, I think. But when I open VMware Workstation 9.0.1 there is no "Mac OS" or "Server" option and does not recognize the iso image converted from a retail dmg using poweriso (wine hehe)

 

Am I missing something?

 

One more question:

 

I've downloaded a vmware image of Mountain Lion

the one with this description

OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Retail

-------------------------------------------

Courtesy of ZackehSoul

-------------------------------------------

 

- For instructions on setting up resolution and sound, visit the link in the downloaded folder.

- Based on Mountain Lion Retail as of 25/07 (release date).

- If you need to contact me quickly, you can find me here; http://q.gs/wQNX

- You can also email me at zackehsoul@hotmail.co.uk, or find me on http://souldevteam.net.

 

 

but it is running too slow even when I change to 2 or 4 cpus with optirun (if optirun causes some acceleration, what I think it does based on some tests here

 

user@machine:~/optirun$ ./a.out

hello

2929 frames in 5.0 seconds = 585.703 FPS

2872 frames in 5.0 seconds = 574.285 FPS

user@machine:~/optirun$ optirun ./a.out

hello

4999 frames in 5.0 seconds = 999.724 FPS

4935 frames in 5.0 seconds = 986.897 FPS

5025 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1004.841 FPS

4886 frames in 5.0 seconds = 977.059 FPS

user@machine:~/optirun$ ./a.out

hello

2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.319 FPS

2944 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.966 FPS

2724 frames in 5.0 seconds = 544.725 FPS

2858 frames in 5.0 seconds = 571.475 FPS

 

i.e., If the code I run with optirun forks, creates a child and invokes another process without optirun, it "inherits" the VGA

 

code bellow of my test

+++++ a.c ++++ gcc a.c -Wall -Wextra => clean

#include <stdlib.h>

#include <unistd.h>

#include <sys/wait.h>

#include <sys/types.h>

 

int main (void)

{

...int q[1]; /* oO at least it worked... */

...if((q[1] = fork()))

......system("./a.sh");

...else

......wait(q);

 

...return(EXIT_SUCCESS);

} /*indentation here is broken, that's why I put those dots..*/

+++++ a.sh +++

#!/bin/bash

echo hello

glxgears

+++

)

 

I can boost CPU MHz listed above with 'for i in $(seq 0 3); do cpufreq-set -c $i -g performance; done' but the performance is still poor.

 

Last thing, when I install and unistall the unlocker, the addresses change

for instance (real one):

Patching /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx

First time: Found OSK0 @ 0xb71bb9ad

Second time: Found OSK0 @ 0xb71919ad

 

Is that OK?

 

Tried to unlock two different ways: stopping vmware daemons and not stopping (/etc/init.d/vmware[-workstation-server, -USBArbitrator] stop)

Thanks in advance for helping me ^^

Hi

 

1. No entry in dialog is my fault it is a bug in unlocker when running on 32-bit Linux which is what you have. It is fine on 64-bit Linux and VMware. I will look at it (again as I forgot about it!), but not until weekend due to work commitments.

 

2. Any "distro" isn't really supported as we don't know what has been added to it. You can create an ISO from the DMG or APP but the instructions are on my desktop machine. Will update later.

 

3. Address changes are fine as it is the loaded address of the executable not the file offset.

A quick heads up, just updated to 10.8.5 (12F9) developer preview, running fine under Workstation 9.0.2 (build-1031769) and unlocker 1.1.0, will try ESXi 5.1.0 U1 and report back in the relevant thread.

Hey guys, new here.. Is there any updates for VMware 9.0.2 build-1031769 unlocker for linux x32 regarding the bug yet? I'm having the same issue using Unlocker v1.1.0 on ubuntu 12.10 without any mac option on it or any luck..

Guys,

 

I have been trying to get my vmware workstation 9.0.2 to install with Mountain Lion 10.8.3.vmdk file. I ran the unlocker and the patch. I have also enabled the VT in the bios. I keep on getting the error when trying to start up the vm that the cpu is not supporting (OSX is not supported with binary translation error) I have also tried a few different combinations for the cpu settings but no luck.

 

Any thing else I can try. Its a intel i5 desktop (Intel Core I5 4430 Processor)

 

Many thanks

I cannot see why your desktop should not work with ML, if the unlocker has been installed and VT-x is enabled in BIOS (Intel spec. says the i5 4430 supports VT-x). Have you tried doing a fresh install of ML or have you updated the hardware compatibilty to Workstation 9?

I have not tried a fresh install of ML. I will give this a go this evening and see how it goes. I used the downloaded ML.vmdk file. I will post my feedback.

 

Thank you for the quick response

No luck so far. The only way I can get the vm to boot it to change the OS from OSX 10.8 to other non 64bit. But then again I get a gray Apple screen with a stop sign.

 

Weird I must say.

OK,

 

I think we need to step back a stage inorder to help make progress. Do you have a vanilla .dmg or .iso of ML, where did your .vmdk come from and do you have the associated files, i.e. .vmx, .nvram and .vmxf?

Morning,

I downloaded the a copy of the unlocker software from here and from ih#chent0sh. Then I searched for a copy of the 10.8.3 ML .vmdk file. I downloaded it and I also had a copy from a friend that had not problems with his .vmdk file.

 

I have Windows 8 64bit with vmware workstation 9.0.2 clean install. The desktop is a novotech and have the virtualisation bit enabled in the bios.

 

After the install of the vmware workstation I run the unlock install script with Admin privileges. This then allow me to select MAC OSX within VMware. I then do a file open from vmware workstation and browse to the ML .vmdk file. This then create the vmware machine. I up the memory to 4 GB and the CPU to 2. Then I try to start the vm. This is where I get the error about the cpu not being supported.

 

"OSX is not supported with binary translation error"

 

The only way I get the vm to start is to change the OS selection from Mac to other non 64bit

 

I am going to do a fresh install of vmware workstation and redownload the lot

 

Downloaded so far:

- vmware workstation 9.0.2 (reinstall complete)

- unlocker from here

- busy with ML retail copy (download complete)

 

I am going to try again

 

!!!!!UPDATE!!!!!!

Its now working. I did a repair on vmware workstation, downloaded a 10.8 base copy and run the unlocker. Its now booting and doing the updates.

 

Thank you guys and I hope this helps someone

Glad to hear you are up and running.

 

In summary one of the few guaranteed routes to a seemless virtual installation of OS X ML (10.8.x) on an Intel (VT-x enabled) PC or Notebook is VMware Workstation 9.0.2 or Player 5.0.2, Donk's (based on work by both Donk and Zenith432) v1.1.0 "Unlocker" from this site and a vanilla download of OS X ML from the Apple App Store.

Unfortunately plenty of people on other sites want to replicate original work done here by the likes of Donk, Zenith432 and others, even myself! and claim to be the font of all knowledge. However while I would be the first to dispute a similar claim for the Sages, Legends and Dietys on this site, often as the originators I would claim the additional insite and a willingness to continue to improve and help make your virtual OS X experience as enjoyable and technically straightforward as possible sets this site and forum apart.

 

Thank you for your vote of confidence, and keep coming back as we gear up for the new challenge of OS X 10.9 Mavericks!

I guess only windows users have the advantage of using the unlocker =/ hmm..

Nope Linux, OS X, ESXi as well

Sorry for any confusion, since this is the Workstation forum I commented on OS X VM's running on Workstation, Player and Fusion, which means Windows, OS X and Linux. However, we have a separate forum for running OS X VM's on ESXi, as Donk has stated the "Unlocker" supports all the above OSes / Hypervisor.
