Mac OS X/intel leaks
And this time "for real". Someone apparently grabbed the live system (or parts thereof) from an intel Mac at WWDC. People are now sharing this archive on the net, trying to get this system running on PCs with Darwin X86 8.x. While there are no reports of running systems yet, two important bits of information could be gathered nonetheless.
First: It seems that the intel version of Mac OS X is "full of universal binaries" that also run on PowerPC Macs. Second: The graphics drivers seem to be present, i.e. once somebody finds a way to get this code running on their PCs, 'normal' ATi and nVidia graphics cards should be supported.
People are now trying to get Darwin X86 to boot into Mac OS X. They came as far as the grey screen with the Apple logo and the clockwise-turning circle. There are some screen photos floating around, one showing a kernel panic.
Comments:
Have you pictures?
 
nope. well: i've seen some on some pearpc forum thread (not about pearpc, talking about the real thing...), but i didn't find them _too_ interesting...
