Mac OS X build instructions

Prerequisites on Mac OS X

  • x (Yosemite) or later running on Intel hardware (PowerPC hardware is not supported nor is building an X11 variant).
  • Xcode matching your Mac OS X version (http://developer.apple.com/tools/download/). Until recently the official builds were done using Xcode (you may use the tools/darwin.amd64/bin/xcodeextractor.sh script to 'install' the necessary bits on later OS X versions).
  • Some things from MacPorts (http://www.macports.org/).
    After installing MacPorts, do not forget to make sure the following two lines are in your or file and actually loaded in the shell you're using: export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH export MANPATH=/opt/local/share/man:$MANPATH

Then perform the following command:

sudo port install libidl acpica yasm subversion doxygen texlive texlive-latex-extra texlive-fonts-extra x86_elf-gcc

Doxygen, texlive* and x86_elf-gcc are optional (first two for documentation, latter for the validation kit).

  • Loading self-built kernel extensions (kexts) on more recent OS X may require changes to the system config unless you have a kext signing certificate and is running (High Sierra) or earlier. For (El Capitan) and later boot to the recovery partition and either enabling loading of unsigned kexts: csrutil enable --without kext or disable SIP all together: csrutil disable For (Catalina) and later you also need to disable the reboot requirement (also from recovery partition): spctl kext-consent disable If you are running (Yosemite) there is a boot-args option for allowing the loading of unsigned kexts. Run the following and reboot: sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

Building VirtualBox

  1. Change to the root directory of the sources and execute the configure script: ./configure --disable-hardening You can manually set the target architecture with or , if some architecture related problems occur.

If it finds everything it needs, it will create a file called containing paths to the various tools on your system. Also, it will create an environment setup script called env.sh. This step only has to be done once (if something changes in your build tool setup, you might have to repeat it but keep in mind that both output files will be overwritten).

  1. Whenever you want to build VirtualBox, you have to open a shell and source the generated environment setup script , i.e. do . ./env.sh
  1. To build type kmk The default is to a release build, should you wish to do a debug or profile build add or as argument to or export it as an environment variable in your shell.

Running VirtualBox

  1. Load all the kernel extension modules. These can be found in along with a small script () to load them. Execute and make sure the modules loads successfully.
  2. Enter .
  3. Run

Building OSE packages for distribution

Never disable hardening (see previous section) when creating packages for redistribution.

Hardening needs some additional configuration and post-build steps. The default install directory of VirtualBox is . If you like to change that, say into , you need to add the following to the :

VBOX_PATH_APP_PRIVATE = "/Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS" VBOX_PATH_APP_PRIVATE_ARCH = "/Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS" VBOX_PATH_SHARED_LIBS = "/Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS" VBOX_PATH_APP_DOCS = "/Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS"

It may also make sense to disable some of the development only stuff, like test cases. Add the following to :

VBOX_WITH_TESTSUITE= VBOX_WITH_TESTCASES=

Starting with VirtualBox , extra debug symbols are created. You can prevent that by adding the following to :

kBuildGlobalDefaults_LD_DEBUG=

Next rebuild VirtualBox and install it into . There isn't any support for installing VirtualBox into a target directory. Just copy the files to the destination. Now make sure that the setuid stubs have the correct permissions:

sudo chown -R root:admin /Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/ sudo chmod u+s /Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox sudo chmod u+s /Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBoxVM sudo chmod u+s /Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxHeadless sudo chmod u+s /Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxNetAdpCtl sudo chmod u+s /Applications/OpenSource/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxNetDHCP

Another requirement of hardening is that every path component of the parent directory of is owned by and not writable. Make sure this is the case.

Relative vs. absolute paths in the used libraries

If you see something like the following error when starting VirtualBox you need to change the used libraries to use absolute paths.

VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib",) failed: \ dlopen(/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib, 10): Library not loaded: QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore Referenced from: /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib Reason: unsafe use of relative rpath QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore in /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib with restricted binary

On Mac OS X it isn't allowed to use libraries with relative paths for referencing to other libraries when the executable is setuid. You can display all linked libraries by the following command:

otool -L /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib

Next, assuming Qt is installed in , you can change the path by using this:

install_name_tool -id /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/Frameworks/QtGui.framework/Versions/4/QtGui \ /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/Frameworks/QtGui.framework/Versions/4/QtGui install_name_tool -change @executable_path/../Frameworks/QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore \ /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/Frameworks/QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore \ /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/Frameworks/QtGui.framework/Versions/4/QtGui

The first command changes the identifier of the library itself. The second changes references to other libraries. There, the first path is the old referenced path, the second one is the new path and the last path is the file to change (see ). Note, you need to repeat this with every library involved (at least , , , , ).

[Solved] Installing El Capitan on a host (iMac Pro)

Postby tutt » Wed Mar 14, am

I'm a longtime Mac and VirtualBox user with several successful OS X guest installations that I use for application compatibility testing. I only use genuine Apple hardware. My new machine is a late iMac Pro running High Sierra I am trying to install El Capitan as a guest, using the installer downloaded from the Mac App store (that I had on a backup drive from a few years ago). The installer, "Install OS X El Capitan.app" is (15G31). I've tried several tutorials and apps for creating a bootable image. The most comprehensive I found was here:
riccardotramma dot com//05/install-os-x-on-virtualbox-on-os-x/

From what I can tell, the installer image I am creating should work to boot the VM. The same image boots a real mac system on a USB drive without issue.

The issue I'm having is that the new VM will not boot from the installer image, but rather displays the "Guru Meditation" error. No matter what I try, this is the result. I've tried adjusting every possible setting: Chipset, Processors, EFI, video memory, Audio etc. Here are my logs:

pastebin dot com/raw/jUXVaypJ

Can anybody tell what might be going wrong? Thanks so much in advance for any tips.

PS I was prevented from posting links above, so you'll have to copy paste them manually, sorry.

Install Mac OS X El Capitan on Virtual Box Regardless of the Host Operating System

Install macOS X El Capitan on Virtualbox-Complete Guide.

Thought every year, Apple Inc introduces a new version of the operating system for their computers. And macOS X El Capitan is a bit old. However, many people are still using El Capitan due to its requirements for low specifications machines. Moreover, a large number of people are using it on virtual machines. Therefore, let&#;s see if you are going to install the macOS X El Capitan on Virtualbox. So, how can you do it?

Let me say this first if you have installed another Mac operating system on Virtualbox like macOS Mojave or Catalina. The installation of El Capitan is also quite similar to that.

You need to execute some commands to install the image file of the operating system. Then you need to create a virtual machine for the OS. And finally, you can install it on the Virtualbox and use it.

However, if you are installing macOS X El Capitan for the first time, there is no reason to panic. We comprehensively explained the (A to Z) procedure on installing the macOS X El Capitan on Virtualbox.

Do, without wasting time; let&#;s get straight into it!

How to install macOS X El Caption on Virtualbox?

Download and install Virtualbox:

The first thing is obviously Virtualbox. You should have downloaded and installed Virtualbox on your Windows PC or any other PC you have IF you have already downloaded and installed Virtualbox on your system. Then you can skip this section.

However, if you have not installed it yet, we have already covered that section in another extensive article. We will paste the link of the article on how you can download and install VirtualBox on your Computer. Follow the instruction, as stated in the section. And you can have the Virtualbox on your system successfully.

Download macOS X El Capitan virtual image file:

As you have successfully installed Virtualbox on your system. Now, it is time to find a macOS El Capitan image file for Virtualbox.

The macOS image file is not available officially by Apple Inc. Those who require an image file. That needs to convert the ISO file into an image file. And this procedure has specific steps to execute.

However, we have already converted it into an image file. And have stored safe and secure. You do not need to execute those lengthy steps. So, we have provided the data in a Google drive. Folder. You can visit the folder below and download the macOS El Capitan image file easily.

Then you just need to extract the file. And it is ready to be used in Virtualbox software.

Create a macOS El Caption virtual machine:

Till here, you have installed Virtualbox. And you have also downloaded and extracted the macOS El Capitan image file.

So, in this step, you need to create a virtual machine before installation. And finally, after this process, you will reach the final stage and install macOS X El Capitan on Virtualbox on Windows PC.

  1. Open the Virtualbox software, and hit on New to start to create a new virtual machine.
  2. Afterward, give a name to the Virtual machine as you are installing macOS El Capitan. So, put the title. Moreover, the type and version will be selected automatically if it didn&#;t fill in the blanks manually. And then hit the Proceed.
  3. At this step, allocate an amount of RAM for the virtual machine that you consider standard. Point to be noted that the minimum amount of RAM for macOS El Capitan required on Virtualbox is 3MB. However, we recommend allocating 8GB if you have a significant amount of RAM. And hit Next to proceed.install macOS el caption on virtualbox
  4. In the following window. You need to allocate the amount of storage to the virtual machine. Keep your focus on this step. You can choose from three options. Whether, don&#;t create a hard disk, create a new hard drive, or select the existing virtual hard disk.
  5. As we already have a virtual hard disk from another virtual machine. So, we select this option. However, we recommend you to create a new hard drive. The step of the creation of a new hard disk is not a big deal. You just need to allocate the amount of storage. Then select the type of room. We believe that you are as smart as to perform this step on your own.
  6. Therefore, once you allocate the amount of storage, select the file of macOS El Capitan. Bear in mind that the step depicted in the picture could be different than yours because we have directly chosen the file from the prior window.

So, now the creation of a virtual machine is done. However, you should edit some more additional settings for the new Virtualbox.

Alter settings for the new virtual machine:

  1. Now, go to the home screen of Virtualbox. And select the macOS El Capitan and enter the settings area.
  2. Then General > System > Motherboard. Uncheck the floppy disk box. Then, in the Processor menu, Select the amount of CPU to allocate for macOS El Capitan. We recommend you select four cores of CPU if you have significant cores.install macOS el caption
