10.5: Virtualize machine-specific 10.4 in Fusion 2
Authored by: Sven G on Nov 14, '08 11:46:09AM
IMPORTANT! There is an error (after "999999"...) in the com.automate.vmware.plist file above, which thus should correctly say:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
"http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">;
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Label</key>
<string>com.automate.vmware</string>
<key>ProgramArguments</key>
<array>
<string>/bin/bash</string>
<string>-c</string>
<string>/bin/rm -f /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist; trap "/usr/bin/touch /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist; exit" SIGINT SIGTERM SIGHUP; sleep 999999 &amp; wait $!</string>
</array>
<key>KeepAlive</key>
<true/>
<key>RunAtLoad</key>
<true/>
</dict>
</plist>

(as from this website: http://blog.rectalogic.com/2008/08/virtualizing-mac-os-x-leopard-client.html, which was cited in a previous hint).

I'm sorry for the mistake.

P.S.: A bug I recently discovered is that sometimes the Tiger VM becomes unresponsive for a certain amount of time, and it looks like it is accessing the DVD drive during that period: so, another strange issue with this of course completely unsupported configuration...

Hmmm... of course with no semicolon (";") after:

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
"http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">;

(must have been added automatically by the forum software, which also underlined the URL).
