    Mac OSX Lepord in Virtualbox

    Has anyone yet tried running a Mac on Virtualbox?

    I really just want the program "Garageband," which seems to be a Mac-only program with no Linux alternative.

    I have the .dmg for OSX, and am trying to convert it to an ISO. Does anyone know if the newer OS, which runs on Intel processors, can run in virtualbox?

    The simple answer is no, it cannot be done. And piracy is illegal anyway.

    The default mac OS X install won't work as the mac hardware is not emulated for it to work. The hacked OS X image that installs on some pc's might work. I have no idea really.

    It's my understanding it is illegal to install any Mac software on anything other than Apple hardware, period.

    It is ILLEGAL for you to run OS X on anything other than an offical Apple computer as outlined in the Apple OS X license agreement

    http://www.apple.com/legal/sla/macosx.html

    2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions.
    A. This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time. This License does not allow the Apple Software to exist on more than one computer at a time,and you may not make the Apple Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers at the same time. You may make one copy of the Apple Software (excluding the Boot ROM code) in machine-readable form for backup purposes only; provided that the backup copy must include all copyright or other proprietary notices contained on the original.
    With that said however, There are a few alternatives if you want to do audio editing on Linux.

    I use Audactiy for editing audio podcasts, music mixing, etc...

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install audacity
    Audacity is an excellent application.

    He did not ask if it was legal. He asked if it was possible/anyone has ever tried it.

    It would be interesting to see if the hacked copy is able to run in a vm.

    You may also want to look at ubuntustudio. More specifically the application ardour.

    you can google search this stuff for weeks and months. but without the right hardware and determination, it'll be impossible. and even with, still a challenge that few have accomplished.

    Software piracy is illegal.

    The use of OS X on anything but Apple hardware is illegal.

    Discussion and encouragement of illegal activity such as software piracy is against the forum rules and policies.

    End of discussion.
