As Apple advertises, Mac OS X is built on a "secure, reliable, Open Source foundation", namely Darwin.
As there is little information left since the OpenDarwin project (which is NOT to be confused with the Darwin project itself) closed, this page is here in order to collect information on how to practically use Darwin.
The first goal will be to install Darwin on a USB drive and boot a generic PC from there. This serves as a starting point for further projects based on Darwin.
Please note that this page is about 100% legitimate uses of the Darwin Open Source system only.
Installing Darwin on USB drive and boot generic PC from there
This is not working yet. Any help is greatly appreciated.
1. Get Darwin 8.0.1 ISO for i386 from Apple 2. Mount ISO 3. Copy /usr /bin /sbin /System /Library /private /cores /mach_kernel from ISO to USB drive 4. Bless USB drive and set partition active 5. Change Boot.plist 5. Boot
