Mac Mini 64bit Kernel

Posted by Michael on April 27, 2010

My Mac Pro (2008)  runs with the 64 bit kernel perfect. No blocker yet.  All tools like VMware work.

I use this Startup Mode Selector for switching. On my Mac Mini Server it does not work.

Tried this and this where the latter has a comment which says it works for mac Mini too. But not for me, yet …

Safari 4

Posted by Michael on March 3, 2009

I must admitt that I’m quite impressed and use it more and more … although I miss the add-ons quite heavily.
But for surfing it is great, love the new Top Sites View !

But I can’t edit my wordpress blog with Safari 4 ….

added 3x Samsung F1 / 1000 GB and waiting now for my 8x 4 GB RAM upgrade to arrive.

It’s a real pleasure to work with this machine !

VMware Fusion 2 Beta

Posted by Michael on May 30, 2008

I’m using now for about a week, even in a productive enviroment.

– memory consumption is quite a bit higher compared to VMware on windows (with v1 too)
– debug is off, but the vm’s can become slow
– Multi monitor is working partially (3rd monitor identfied but blank),
maybe cause I use 2 different grapic cards and 3 monitors with different resolutions

No time yet for testing 3D graphics with some games but will do soon. Overall it’s stable – had never experienced any real problem with beta’s in the past – and I’m looking forward to the final version.

Virtualizing OS X with VMware

Posted by Michael on May 29, 2008

An interesting post to read about running an unpatched Darwin 9 system in vmware fusion, saying:

” Obviously this is with the goal of officially supporting the virtualization of OS X which will be coming at some point in the future. As Regis mentions on his website, VMware is not doing a “Hackintosh” but a real installation of OS X from a factory-sealed DVD”.

Read full post here.  The post from Regis you find here
