Parallels Beta Build 3036 early available

December 2nd, 2006 No comments

Wow this is a kick ass release, can’t wait to test it out!
Kudos to Parallels for bringing us such release!

My report:

Coherency works great.
It makes everything behind the active window invisible
(except the taskbar), which gives the illusion that the application
is running in MacOS X. (Not working yet with Vista).

Helas, the boot from bootcamp partition option is grayed out on a Hac.

Any workaround? Wait and see…

Some of the kewl features (read whole post):

Security Update 2006-007 for OSx86

December 1st, 2006 2 comments

The security update has been reported to work on any INTEL SSE3 machine.
AMD is broken, since it replaces some of the files (Finder) that have been patched.

You need to be sure that you are running r2d2,
which should be the case if you installed latest 10.4.8 JaS DVD.

If you are not sure, run the command kextstat under Terminal,
and see if r2d2.kext is listed/loaded.

If you are running the last modded from source 10.4.8 kernel,
you don’t need r2d2.kext anymore, it is integrated in kernel.

Leopard 10.5 running on a PC

November 18th, 2006 40 comments


This is history! It happened in November 2006!

The first Leopard Beta release running on PC!

One day in 2006, when the first Leopard beta was leaked, we got it running on Intel x86 PC.
At the time, Leopard was very similar to Tiger OS X, talking about look & feel.
Since that time, a lot happened in the OS X86 scene, and we are proud today to have
Mac OS X86 10.5.3
You can register to our forum for more information:

Happy Mac OS X86 hacking
