I have installed Mac OS X El Capitan to a KVM/Qemu virtual machine on Gentoo. Native spice/vnc is totally unusable and slow. Native Mac OS X VNC server and linux's vncviewer is also unusable and slow, even moving windows or anything else.

I need some fast access to my local mac virtual machine, so I can feel like a native. I had some success with Nomachine NX, but now we need to use only open source software on linux side.

I tried to connect opennx with Nomachine NX server on Mac OS and failed.

Is there any other ways accessing mac desktop fastly?

  • As you're running an unlicensed OS on an unsupported platform, you may be on your own. – Tetsujin Jun 23 '17 at 15:35
  • This is just technical details. The question is about fast access a mac desktop from linux via remote software. – Ural Jun 24 '17 at 5:02
  • Well, the 'technical details' are what's preventing anyone answering - you're floating an unlicensed OS on top of unsupported hardware - the connectivity between the two is possibly unique to you. – Tetsujin Jun 24 '17 at 15:07

    Well, I am doing it on Apple hardware, and license allows it. Vmware officially support it including Sierra right after it release. contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~somlo/OSXKVM I just don't entirely like Mac OS X and prefer Gentoo as main OS – Ural Jun 25 '17 at 3:19
  • Well, that's 5 comments we could have saved if you'd mentioned that in your question:/ – Tetsujin Jun 25 '17 at 8:00
