how to join-split media files

I needed to join several flac files.

For this purpose I found shntool – very useful tool.  If you add flac library then everything works as expected.

steps:

  1. add shntool to windows folder
  2. add flac exe also to windows folder
  3. go to folder where you have flac files

joining flac files

shntool join -o flac *.flac


installing mac os x client in fusion

Apple forbid to install mac os x “client” to install to any virtualization software. You can install only max os x server version.

To install it you need to pretend that “client”  is “server” 🙂

  1. create iso
  2. mount it and create file which pretend that client is “server”
  3. touch “/Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist”
  4. install
  5. it will reboot machine and tries to start from already installed instance – but you will get error that it is not “server” version
  6. you have to boot again and start installation from iso
  7. after 2 “yes” clicks you can run terminal from utilities from top menu and run command
  8. touch “/Volumes/Macintosh HD/System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist”
  9. reboot
  10. you are done

Of course this is breaking apple/vmware linceses.
