ok I like that better
now how do I tell if QE is on ?

This method works also for me with QE enabled on default. Is the bar on the top transparent? Select Screen savers tab and do test out a screensaver. If you see a blank screen , it means that your Graphics acceleration is not working !

should I worry about these ?


ash-3.2# kextcache -v -t -l -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extension
Can't stat /System/Library/Extension - No such file or directory.
bash-3.2# kextcache -v -t -l -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
AppleACPIPCI.kext - no compatible dependency found for com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform.
AppleACPIPCI.kext is missing dependencies (including anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere)
Dependency Resolution Failures:
Only incompatible kexts found for these libraries:
com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform

JMicronATA.kext does not declare a kernel dependency; using com.apple.kernel.6.0.
Created mkext archive /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext.


it's ok.
sorry :censored2: , miss type ! /System/Library/Extension -> /System/Library/Extensions

ehy.. not enough!

it's better to put in the flag: boot-uuid=number uuid of boot partition


i use UUID FIX kext, PlatformUUID.kext. boot-uuid=number uuid of boot partition is not necessary in com.apple.Boot.plist .
Extensions.zip file my posted include PlatformUUID.kext (32/64bit) .

bash-3.2# cat com.apple.Boot.plist
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=x86_32</string>
</dict>
</plist>

if you have more interest, see collection of 64bit KEXT.

If I try and setup the ethernet and then reboot into my Kubuntu 9.04 I get the same response their also , so the osx driver is doing something to it , I have to power off and pull power cord to get it back

you have the wifi drivers working under snow ?


By the way, you can edit the plist of the ATY_Init kext to show the model information as being whatever you want, e.g. nVidia GeForce 9300. If I remember rightly it is just a case of adding the identifier "model" and the string variable "nVidia GeForce 9300" into the plist. Then obviously also put the rpevious version in the trash, load the new one, and trash the Extensions.mkext. Then on re-load you get a nicer read-out in the system profiler instead of just "graphics by nVidia".

For the ethernet, to be honest I never noticed it wasn't working, as I have always used my wifi. You could try a LAN fix on the DSDT perhaps? I am however, not convinced that would be easy judging by the results I got after trying out the "HPET fix" and whilst I got the code exactly as I was supposed to, and it re-compiled it with no errors, I was still not able to boot without the disabler kext (instant KP!)....though to be honest, I am really not bothered by that and won't waste any more time on that one.

What I am wasting far too much time on though is trying to use the DSDT to help with the audio (you can get rid of the HDAEnabler kext if you get it right) and getting it to work with a patched AppleHDA kext - so many variables and frequent KPs if you get things close but wrong. I will keep plugging away at that and will let you know if I succeed. To date though I still have not found any better audio solutions yet than using my USB audio - the legacy kexts are okayish, but I hate that occasional crackle and voodoohda still - even following the patching hints over on Project OSX does not work right for me.

Never mind, that is half the fun and it's great when you do have a breakthrough.

If I'm reading this thread correctly, the onboard SHARED-ram video works with osx? That's crazy because I remember reading that discrete video memory is always needed! I'd really like to buy one of these to build an HTPC so hopefully someone will confirm :huh:

PS. by working I meant with QE/CI or OpenCL if under Snow!

Yes i can confirm this. QE/CI run, but only in 32Bit Mode under SL

What about under leopard 10.5.x? I'd be happy running Leopard if I could get QE/CI with EFI strings!

No, I am using a PCIe card - it works under all OS I have tried and is recognised as Airport natively under OSX - which is nice.


@MiniHack
Which PCIe card do you use? I like to have one, thanks.

Hi, has anyone tried Chameleon RC3? For I have trouble with RC2 which causes during reboot to freeze the keyboard. I use the native Apple USB keyboard. Thanks.

Do I need a different dsdt.aml for snow leopard than the one in this thread? I'm trying to do a vanilla install from another guide on these forums and wanted to know if this one could be included with that.

Hi, I use Chameleon 2 RC3 bootloader, and it takes about two minutes to shut down, normally it takes only few seconds, any idea?

Boot with -v and then watch the screen during shutdown - it will show the processing as the system shuts down. My system hangs for 10-15 secs because clamd (part of ClamXAV antivirus) doesn't respond to SIGTERM. You may find something like that which is taking the time.

You can try the USBBusFix at startup to see if that makes any difference as well.
