Er.. is there any good answer as to whether it is possible or not to use VirtualBox or KVM to virtualize OS X?
I have Leopard server hardware, but I want to install Ubuntu as the host OS, and have a Leopard server as a guest along with a few other Linux guests.
Is there technical means available to make that possible?
Without using a non-server version of OS X, modifying it in any way, or using some hacked vmdk file...?
There should be no concern in this forum about the burden of compliance. If you bother to actually read the EULA and contact Apple, well, my legal advisors do so, and tell me it will be permissible to virtualize OS X, provided I use only the authorized OS software, obtain enough licenses, and run the virtual machine software on only Apple brand equipment, which is easy enough.
The issue is that either I don't know how to do it.. or it's not yet made possible by Open source software, which would be a shame....
See the section of the Leopard server EULA that states:
2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions. A. Mac OS X Server Software. This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Mac OS X Server software (the “Mac OS X Server Software”) on a single Apple-labeled computer. You may also install and use other copies of Mac OS X Server Software on the same Apple-labeled computer, provided that you acquire an individual and valid license from Apple for each of these other copies of Mac OS X Server Software. You agree not to install, use or run the Apple Software on any non-Apple-labeled computer, or to enable others to do so. This License does not allow the Mac OS X Server 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. Please note that the Apple Software is supported only on Apple-labeled systems that meet the specified system requirements as indicated on the outside of the Mac OS X Server packaging.
