Building on Mac OS X under QEMU/KVM¶
The Starforge developers make no claims as to the legality of virtualizing Mac OS X under QEMU/KVM. Common readings of the Mac OS X license suggest that virtualization of Mac OS X on Linux is legal as long as the underlying hardware is an Apple computer. However, as with the rest of the Starforge project, the authors are not liable for any claim, damages or other liability, as laid out in the Starforge License.
Once the image is available (and configured in
config.yml), Starforge will
use Btrfs to create snapshots of the image. Thus, you will need to store the
Mac OS X image in a btrfs subvolume on the host OS.
