Not a bug, obviously, but just a quick note on the condition of the LoL Mac beta in a virtual machine running OS X Server - basically, the necessary hardware acceleration is wreaking havoc on getting it to run. The install of AIR and LoL itself went smoothly, but opening the app resulted in an error stating that hardware acceleration is disabled due to "safe mode or driver errors". The thing is, I know that Intel VT and Virtual Box 3.0+ support OpenGL, so now I'm busily tweaking settings to see if I can get LoL to RECOGNIZE that virtualized hardware acceleration is present.

I have no idea if this has any value to you, but I figure more knowledge about any given obscure setup can't hurt.

My rig:
OS X Server 10.6.4, virtualized in VirtualBox 3.2.6
i7-920 / ASUS P6T mobo
nVidia GTS 240
6GB RAM

Otherwise, I'm going to continue testing on my MacBook Pro - thanks a lot for giving us this opportunity to try out the Mac client!

We don't support virtualized OSX although I'm interested to see what else you find!
