Is this able to be used on a partition on my USB drive? How do I do this?

Another great kext tool, thank you for your contributions. 

 

I ran this and it detects my processor correctly but I still have issues with Power Management, will see after a reboot if this changed anything or not.

 

Keep up the good work for the OSX86 community.

Thanks for this awesome utility. Is there any plans for you of adding kexts to /Library/Extensions rather than /System/Library/Extensions for 10.11+?

No longer seems to be able to add "nvda_drv=1" into boot args - I've edited KU_Config.plist correspondingly (-v, nvda_drv=1 and kext-dev-mode=1 enabled "YES", though the last one might no longer be needed.) Only -v gets applied.

You can change only the true / false value for an existing key, but not the key itself. "kext-dev-mode=1" key can be added only for MAC OS X "Yosemite".

Bug report(minor):

    I accidentally put my LPCSensors.kext into my /L/E folder.

          LPCSensors.kext required FakeSMC.kext as a dependency. Which is located in my Clover folder.

    kextcache command failed while rebuilding cache because it couldn't find dependency of LPCSensors.kext. And my system cache became invaild.

   Kext Utility, however, says All done ... have fun.

Hi, Arslan2012.

 

LPCSensors.kext should be placed in the directory FakeSMC.kext/Contents/PlugIns/. Don't install it separately.

It actually does not matter.

Any kext placed in /S/L/E/SomeKext.kext/Contents/Plugins is the same as placing directly in /S/L/E.

I think KU should return the error kextcache complaint if $? != 0

You are right. There are no exact data from the user. Most likely KU showed this message:

Updating the system cache files ............................................................. False
-- Timeout 120 sec.
 
-- Unknown error --
 
Syncing disk cache ... Done.
 
All done.

IMHO why not show the error that `kextcache` returned to users?

FakeSMC.kext and/or its plugins can be placed in /S/L/E or /L/E with later versions of macOS/OS X.
The result is the same.
And the result is the same whether kexts are in the root of /S/L/E or /L/E or in a PlugIns directory of another kext.

What are you talking about? And for whom?

Hi there,

I know the problem is not directly linked to your activity of OSx86 but maybe you can help me, I block on this problem since last year, trying to use an Alesis Multimix Firewire on my mac (this Alesis mix table model is not supported yet by the developers on Sierra)
 

 

Here my problem :

Updating the system cache files ............................................................. False
-- Timeout 120 sec.

-- Unknown error --

Hi, Clmnt.

I think the right steps in your case would be:

1. Restart your computer into Recovery Mode (restart and wait for the computer screen to go completely black. Then press and hold 'Command' and 'R' and don't let up until you see the Apple logo).
2. Open Terminal and type csrutil disable.
3. Restart your computer.
4. Issue the following command into the Terminal:
$ csrutil status
If you’ll see this message:
System Integrity Protection status: disabled
it's all right.
5. Download and run Kext Utility.
6. Download AlesisFirewire.kext
7. Drag and drop AlesisFirewire.kext into Kext Utility and let it do its thing.

Oh man, it was so simple and it work, so many thanks :)
 
You can't imagine how it's cool for me now, I can record 12 tracks simultaneously with just a firewire cable with my mixtable ! the normal way is to buy an expansive audio soundcard $$$ and 12 cables in outputs, and I do it with just a 200€ mixtable found on ebay and a firewire cable
 
 
Thank you again  :D
