I work on Synergy. Synergy is free and open source software for sharing one mouse and keyboard between multiple computers.

comment Can I boot to a different Mac OS X partition from the command line?
@Gordon Davisson This should be an answer; I would have accepted it. I will accept Diago's instead.

comment How do I detect and install a Wifi adapter in Debian?
Unfortunately Debian media won't boot from the laptop, hence why I cloned from another computer.

Correction, not a CD, it's a DVD "hardware bundle" -- "not to be sold separately".

My host is 10.6.4 also (on Mac mini 32-bit). Using the Snow Leopard DVD with BETA1 I've finally managed to get to the Welcome screen - hurrah! The text displayed before that was a little scary, something about a BUG (I guess an assertation failed). However, I haven't tried to fully install yet so I might be speaking too soon. Also, I had to change the LAN mode from NAT to Bridged (because of some VirtualBox network error code). I have also tried using the Macbook 10.5 CDs but this brings me to the EFI shell; I guess the disk isn't supported?

With 3.2.8 did you need to disable the EFI option?

Also, did you have the option for "Mac OS X" (desktop) as well as "Mac OS X Server"? I guess I'll find out tonight :)

The DVD is for Intel Mac - I also tried using the Snow Leopard disk (which works fine for my Intel Mac mini). I will try VirtualBox beta tonight.

By the way, if I choose "Mac OS X Server" and disable the EFI option, then insert my Mac OS X 10.5 disk (not server), it reads the disk for a second, then I see "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted."

Which VM type did you choose? I chose Mac OS X Server and had no success. Is your disk for the desktop or server version?

comment Why might a hard drive spin down then spin back up intermittently?
Good points. So I'm running Windows 7, and it was intermittently spinning down during boot. I assume because the motherboard would have been drawing a lot of power. Anyway, I replaced the PSU with a 500W model, and so far it seems to be behaving.
