If you want to install 10.5.2 you also need the Kalyway 10.5.2 Combo Updater (from TPB), the kalyway 10.5.2 kernels mpkg (from here ), netkas's 9.2.0 SpeedStep kernel (download here ), mac.nub's SMBIOS27 Default (download here), and the Leopard Graphics Update 1.0 from Apple (download here )
qemu-img.exe 0.8.1 with imgover4g fix if you are using Windows (download here )
qemu-img.exe 0.9.1 if you are using Linux (download here , comes with a bunch of other tools but qemu-img is the one you need)
About 20GB of free HD space
Converting the Leopard flat image to the right format:
Note for Linux: If you are doing this on Linux, note that all the file paths in this step are Windows only. Adjust the file paths as necessary for your linux system.
First of all, create a new directory in the ROOT of your C: drive called "leo". This is where all our files will go.
Get the Leopard flat image and there is a RAR file, unzip the RAR (unzipping takes a long time) file to the leo folder on your desktop and there will be a file called "leopard-x86-flat-img"
Rename leopard-x86-flat-img to leopard.img (You may get some warnings about changing the extension, just accept)
Download the qemu-img.zip file (at the top in the What you need section) and unzip the qemu-img.exe file in the archive into the leo folder
Open a new command prompt in Windows. Execute the following commands:
qemu-img convert -O vmdk leopard.img leopard.vmdk
That last command will create a leopard.vmdk file in your leo folder. It will take a long time. You will know whem the command is finished when it returns to the "C:/leo>" command prompt. The resulting leopard.vmdk file should be 6.85GB in size
Mounting the leopard VMDK file in VMware
Open VMware Workstation and open your *working* Tiger virtual machine
The guest OS of the virtual machine should be set to FreeBSD or FreeBSD 64-bit (recommended)
Go to the VM menu >> Settings and click Add
Choose Hard Disk and click Next, choose the "Use an existing virtual disk" option and click Next. Browse to your leopard.vmdk disk file and click Finish
The disk should be mounted as a secondary drive for your virtual machine
Boot your virtual machine and it should go into your working Tiger install
If you get an error about a 64bit OS on 32bit and get a VMware stack error, change the guest OS to FreeBSD 64-bit
Once booted up, the Leopard volume should be mounted and ready
Backing up and deleting some bad kexts
In Tiger, open a new Terminal window and run the following commands:
Run it from the Tiger VM, for the "Volume/Directory to patch" choose your Leopard volume
Choose the "Patch all binaries" radio button and Patch
It will take a long time, but eventually it will be done
You should now be able to boot the Leopard VM properly
If it doesn't work, tap F8 while the Leopard VM is booting to get to the boot: prompt and type in -v and hit Enter.
Create a new Leopard VM
Go to File >> New Virtual Machine and create a new VM (you should be familiar with this if you installed Tiger on VMware)
Choose Custom and not typical
Set the Hardware Compatibility to Workstation 6 and click Next
Set the guest OS to "Other" and set the Version to "FreeBSD 64-bit"
Give the virtual machine a name, and preferrably store it in a different partition from the one you are running Windows from, click Next
Set the number of processors to 1 (you can use 2 as well, but there is no visible speed increase) and click Next
Set the amount of memory to half your actual system memory and click Next (more the memory the faster)
Select "Use bridged networking" and click Next
Here, choose "Use an existing virtual disk" and click Next
Browse to and select your leopard.vmdk file that you converted and worked with and click Finish (if it asks you to convert or keep existing format, choose "Keep existing format")
Back at the home screen, double click on the CD-ROM and in the dialog that pops up, uncheck the "Connect at power on" checkbox and click OK
Now go to the VM >> Settings menu and click and Remove the Floppy Drive and the USB Controller
Settings BIOS options
Note: To toggle between the guest OS and the host OS, press Ctrl + Alt
Make sure that all other virtual machines are turned off
Now boot your Leopard VM. Click inside the window immediately and tap F2 as fast as you can to get to the setup
In the main BIOS screen, choose the Legacy Diskette A and set it to Disabled
Go to the Advanced tab >> I/O Device Configuration and disable all Parallel, Floppy, and Serial controllers
Press F10 to save changes and reboot
Booting Leopard up for the first time
Back when you are rebooting after changing BIOS, click inside the VM window and tap F8 as fast as you can
You will eventually get to a boot: prompt
Type -v at the boot prompt and hit Enter
Watch the messages scroll by, leave it for 15-30 minutes until it boots
It will display the Welcome wizard eventually, go through it and you are in Leopard!
If it does not boot, go back to the F8 boot prompt and type in -v -x -f cpus=1 and hit Enter to see if it works
Update to 10.5.2
Take the Kalyway 10.5.2 Combo Update, the kalyway 10.5.2 kernels mpkg, netkas 9.2.0 kernel, mac.nub SMBIOS, and the Leopard Graphics Update 1.0 and put them all into a ISO
In your Leopard VM (assuming that Leopard is running and ready) right click the little CD-ROM icon in the bottom right corner and click Edit
Click on the "Use ISO image" radiobox and browse to your ISO containing the 10.5.2 update files, click OK
Now right click the little CD-ROM icon again and click Connect
In minutes, the CD-ROM should be mounted on your Leopard desktop
Go into the contents of the CD and drag everything to the desktop to copy it (this may take a while)
The first thing you want to do is double click the ZIP containing the Kalyway combo updater (the 340MB combo updater, not the kernels package) to unzip it (takes a long time)
Inside the unzipped folder there will be a Kalyway Combo Updater installer package. Run this installer package (just go through the install wizard, its really easy). It will take a really long time to install, even on a Core 2 Quad it to upwards of 30-40 minutes
When it tells you to click restart at the end, DO NOT RESTART
Now unzip the zip file containing the Kalyway kernels package (the small 6.4MB one). Run the kalyway kernels mpkg installer pkg inside
When it comes to the part where it asks you to select the kernel, choose the "patched kernel by modbin"
Click Close at the end of the installation
Now to install the netkas kernel and mac.nub SMBIOS, unzip both of the ZIPs so that you have mach_kernel and AppleSMBIOS.kext sitting on your desktop
Open the Terminal application from Applications >> Utilities folder and run the following commands:
Now, close Terminal and open the Disk Utiltiy application from Applications >> Utilities. Select your Leopard volume from the left pane, and click the Repair Permissions button (it takes a long time, wait till its done and close Disk Utility)
Now finally you can restart. Go back to the Kalyway Como Updater pkg and click the Restart button
It should reboot back into Leopard just fine, with no problems
The next thing to do is the Leopard Graphics Update, mount the Leopard Graphics Update DMG file (double click it)
Run the installer package inside the mounted DMG and Restart
All should be fine now, and you have Leopard with 10.5.2 working on VMware!
Ethernet might be working right after you start the VM (open Safari to test) but if it doesn't work, heres how to set it up:
Open System Preferences from the Dock
Click on the Network preference pane
It will say that a new interface (en0) has been detected, choose the Ethernet Adapter from the left pane
Assuming that your internet is auto configuring DHCP, just click the Apply button.
Even if it says Cable disconnected or not connected, ignore it, Ethernet will still work
It will pull up all your DNS info and everything automatically, close System Preferences
You should be able to use Apple Software Update and go on the net fine!
Ethernet Method 2
If it still doesn't work, here's another method to do it (make sure that you have an Ethernet adapter configured as Bridged and that you have rebooted the virtual machine after adding the adapter)
Go back to System Preferences and open the Network preferences again
Click on Ethernet from the left pane and at the bottom click the Assist Me button
In the resulting dialog box click the Assistant button
The Network Setup Assistant will start up, give the Location a name and click Continue
Choose the "I use a cable modem to connect to the Internet" option
Click Continue again, and then it will take a moment and tell you that you can't connect automatically and to enter some details
Without entering any details click Continue and click OK at the dialog box (this sort of "activates" the Ethernet)
Now click the Go Back button twice to get to the screen to choose a connection option
This time choose "I connect to my local area network (LAN)"
At the Ready to Connect screen click Continue and now it will give you a confirmation that you are connected
Click Done or whatever button and close System Preferences, Internet should be working
What doesn't work
USB doesn't work usually, but for some it did work. Add a USB Controller as a virtual device VMware if you want to try it
Sound partially works, but its too laggy and distorted to listen to
QE/CI doesn't work obviously because there is no video driver for OS X on VMware
¿Qué es Bitcoin?Bitcoin es el dinero digital utilizado para la transferencia segura e instantánea de valor en cualquier parte del mundo. No es controlado ni emitido por ningún banco o gobierno, sino que es una red abierta que es administrada por sus usuarios. Mucho en como el correo electrónico mejora la comunicación por lo que es rápido y barato, Bitcoin es una mejora en los métodos de pago existentes que no fueron diseñados para la era de Internet.
¿Es el Bitcoin seguro?
El protocolo básico de Bitcoin es visible por cualquiera, ha sido examinado por miles de investigadores de seguridad alrededor del mundo y ha demostrado ser robusto y confiable después de un escrutinio inmenso. El uso de bitcoin es similar al uso de otras aplicaciones privadas en Internet, como correo electrónico o banca en línea. Al igual que estos otros servicios web, debe acceder a su bitcoin con una contraseña para asegurarse de que sólo tiene acceso a su dinero.
