pretty sure the voodoo kernel fixes this.

I have trouble with this patch and Leo 10.5.8. Sometimes parts of the system become laggy and non-responsive, like the terminal and some parts of firefox. Also netbeans' code completion becomes awfuly slow. All this happens some time after boot, when I've been using the computer for a while. Also it fixes itself randomly, but comes back.
My system specs are in my sig. I've used a patched vanilla kernel with -tscsync flag, a stock vanilla kernel with VoodooTSCSync.kext and -tscsync flag, and Voodoo kernel alpha 9.7 with kext and flag.
Please any help or thoughts?

Correction, this happens even when booting with cpus=1, so it might be something else that's making my installation unstable.

Hi, I have this:

Dell Inspiron 9400
Core 2 Duo T7200
WUXGA 1920x1200 screen
NVidia Geforce go 7900GTX, 100% working (with injectgo)
2GB DDR2 667 RAM
Sigmatel 9200 audio, 100% working (with voodoohda)

I installed Kalyway release (10.5.2), updated with the comboupdate 10.5.3.

Everything seem to work, but is very slow (and for me it depends on the video): even the screensaver is slow, the activity monitor darken the screen saying I have to restart the computer, Ableton Live shows the track meters with a lot of delay (but the audio is ok).

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance,

Nicola


P.S. system log in the attachment.

if you are running both cores with your C2D you will notice stuttering. Mouse movements and window closing/opening will be erratic. E.g. the magnification out of the menu won't work smoothly at all or the bouncing...

If that is the case you can either run with a single core, which you do in the BIOS. or you use the TSCsync kext. You can install it into S/L/E or into your extra folder if you have one - doesn't make a difference. The TSCsync problem is typical for Dell laptops with core2duos.

Well well well, I have this laptop for just one week, I started to notice that the graphic effects are not so fluid, like they should, and stuuters a little bit, could it be i have the problem? probably yes?

There is something strange here, if I have a game running on the computer (World of Goo in full screen then I go to Finder with command+tab) the exposé effects are perfect. if I close the game the graphics starts to stutter again.

Edit: Now it is working

the problem is that the terms I used may be misleading. When I say stuttering, I really mean constant stuttering. The bouncing of the icons in the dock is erratic. It's pretty annoying to work with the system in that state.

What you are describing sounds more like a CPU intensive program that is running in the background interfering with what you are doing. One culprit could be AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. I suggest to use the voodoo power kext and remove this one.

You second part is strange I agree. It almost sounds like the game itself is enabling some graphic capability that wasn't there before you started it.

I thought it was fixed, but the problem is still there even after VoodooTSCSync.kext

when the game is running it works so beautifully damn damn damn

Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

This for me was the last piece of the puzzle! I've had a successful hour or so, first I found Chun nans kext to allow proper battery level indication in leopard and now this!!! I really thought that I would have to live with just the one core!

Thank you so much for this.

Dell D620
Kalyway 10.5.2 Vanilla
sleep, speedstep, BOTH CORES!


Will this work for iatkos v7? I too have the dell d620 with the core duo cpu.

SNOW LEOPARD (Note: NO kernel mod needed)
VoodooTSCSync for snow

Leopard (Note: NO kernel mod needed)
[url="http://"http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=794.0;attach=596"]VoodooTSCSync for 10.5.x[/url]


Can you link me to the leopard version? Your link doesn't work.
