Switched to the new plist - works much better
Authored by: Timpraetor on Dec 16, '09 07:56:09AM

Too bad that you can't edit the original entry to change that. I didn't read all of the comments, so missed the changed code.

So far, so good. I'm now about to switch to Snow Leopard permanently on my Mac Pro (versus tri-booting) and run Tiger and Leopard as VMs for testing and debugging.

Thanks again!

Switched to the new plist - works much better

Good to know it finally worked... :-)

The only really big issue remaining is the lack of sound support - no drivers included - for OS X VMs, and, in the case of Tiger, also the lack of compatible VMware Tools (which anyway are still rather limited also with Leopard+ VMs: no Unity view, for example, AFAIK). There are, indeed, some AppleAC97Audio.kext and similar extensions floating around in the Hackintosh sites and forums on the web, but I haven't yet found one which really works in Fusion (well, I also only tried one time, and the downloaded extension probably was outdated: the audio hardware - after adding it in the Fusion VM preferences - was indeed recognized, but no sound came out of the Tiger VM anyway): maybe other MacOSXHints readers know better how to solve this problem...?
