Mac 10.6.3 on VirtualBox using Linux host AMD

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have an odd issue I simply cannot figure out.


I have MacOS 10.6.3 installed and working in a Linux host of VirtualBox except the resolution.


From what I have found so far online, I have to make an entry in the VM XML file with the desired resolution I want (1440x900x32) and update a plist entry in the MacOS located in an Extras folder and in a SystemPreferences folder. I have no Extras folder though on my root drive space. I updated the SystemPreference folder plist and no change to my resolution either.


I do have to use an EFI boot disk (I forgot the name but it has a StarWars guy on it if that helps) to boot up the MacOS but otherwise everything seems fine.


Does anyone have any ideas for why or how to fix this?

Hi its really simple, you need an extras folder, and a org.chamelionboot.plist with


<key>graphics enabler</key>


<key>graphics mode</key>



you need to add this as root


alternatively use a tool like chameleon wizard to mange all this its far better!
