We'll release the full sources as a patchset (nicely commented and tagged with explanations and original contributor's names) as soon as the final kernel is released

will be looking forward. :huh: great work guys!

Is there any hope for this fixing the dreaded "mouse bug" for AMD dual-core processors?

It's outlined here: http://www.infinitem...hread.php?t=734

To summarise this for future reference; it is not a 'mouse bug' per se, but a dual core timing issue.
Symptoms include:
• Mouse lag - early signs are drag and drop inaccuracies, trail skipping
• GUI lag - Finder window movement becomes choppy and acceleration degrades
• Random restarts - caused by the 'divide by zero' error resulting in kernel panic
• -10810 error - applications will not start until a restart or log out/in
• increased CPU fan noise and temperatures - due to dual core synchronisation errors
• general erratic behaviour - system feels sluggish, unresponsive at times

Remedy (Temporary)
• Boot using the 'cpus=1' kernel flag - this can be done at the beginning of each boot at the Darwin boot prompt, or permanently by editing the com.apple.boot.plist which can be found in: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/


That is by far the biggest set back for running OSX on AMD dating back from the very first releases; and there is still no fix. I'm thinking this has something to do with the kernel.

This was a very good read. I felt like I was in the Matrix 4 with all the kernel, etc.. jargon. If this ever goes commercial at least I can say I was part of the history and read it here first. Good interview and nice to see regular folk so dedicated to the cause. Much respect to the developers.

Awesome. This has to be great news for all of us. This should help so many people with Asus EEE Pc's running slow on battery.

Just set my system up with alpha 13. Noticeable performance increase on my system (see sig); most importantly to me, OpenGL performance is up ~35fps in the XBench test. Haven't tried any real-world graphics yet though.

Looking forward to final ;).

Amazing work voodoo team! Haven't tested it myself or updated to 10.5.5 yet for that matter but I'm eagerly awaiting to try it.

Also went and test-drove the latest Alpha 13 - extraordinary, that's all I can say! Been using an MSI 975X platinum (first release) with an older dual core (NOT core 2 duo) intel - I've always had sleep and shutting down issues. With this kernel - all problems gone, and the system seems to be significantly faster - will update to 10.5.5 now.

Thanks to the XNU developers, fantastic work this.
