I'm on Lion and I want to install Snow Leopard in vmware fusion. Is there a way to do that ?

Just want to do that, because of a software using powerpc not intel binaries.

Thanks !

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Does Snow Leopard run PPC binaries? I thought Leopard was the last one to do that? I could be wrong. – mkoistinen Jul 3 '11 at 10:10
Snow Leopard can do that with Rosetta. – Rodolphe Jul 3 '11 at 10:41

Snow Leopard Client can be virtualized but it is forbiden. Doing so would breach the Apple User Agreement.

I saw with Lion, that they will change their politics. I will wait a little :) – Rodolphe Jul 3 '11 at 10:42
Lion client can be virtualized. 2 virtual machines instances are allowed per physical machines. – David Andreoletti Jul 4 '11 at 1:59
So, Lion can be installed in a virtual machine, but Snow Leopard, can't ? – Rodolphe Jul 4 '11 at 20:08
Legally Yes. Lion can be virtualized as per the recents news. Snow Leopard cannot as per Apple User Agreement. Technically both can be virtualized. Though Snow Leopard requires some hacking. – David Andreoletti Jul 5 '11 at 1:38
AFAIR Snow Leopard Server could be used in a VM – trurl Jul 21 '11 at 22:52
