It is a qemu virtualization base tool for creating a VM. For creating a MacOS virtual machine all the configuration file is default available on this tool.

I can use this tool on my device personally. I like this tool. sosumi all configuration files are available on the snap directory. You can put some manually configuration changes on this directory. It is booted on the basesystem.dmg file. Do not modify or delete the basesystem.dmg and .qcow2 file on a given directory. If you can remove this then your sosumi software will crash. You can edit the RAM and CPU details from the given directory.

In the sosumi snap tool I can face some errors. I can install it on my AMD system. When I can open this snap it automatically closes and does not work properly. In case I work on a device but get some driver issues like keyboard and mouse not working properly. If you work on your device then follow the way to install it in your system.
