Introduction:

The Voodoo XNU kernel is a fork of the XNU kernel shipped with Apple®
Darwin operating system – the open-source foundation of Mac OS X.
Voodoo kernel aims to expand the range of processors supported by XNU, and
provide technologies to enable Darwin and associated applications to run on a
variety of x86 platform combinations. Technologies included in the Voodoo kernel
range from emulation of SSE3 instructions, to on-the-fly patching of loadable
binaries. The kernel also fixes issues with multi-processor timing synchronization,
SpeedStep™ support and sleep/resume.

Tested, working perfectly here. I have installed it since yesterday, and I hadn't have any problem with it. Previously I used qoopz 9.7 kernel and I needed this one to have a complete 10.5.8 upgrade.

I used qoopz 9.7.0 kernel from iATKOS v7 and Parallels Desktop & VMWare causing Kernel Panic.
I have to downgrade my kernel back to 9.5.0 to make them work.
Is this new release address this issue?

I had no problems with qoopz 9.7.0 and qoopz 9.8.0 with parallels. Are you using this kernel as mach_kernel or is it named differently (I've heard about some problems with vmware when the kernel has a different name than mach_kernel).

Exactly.  Parallels kernel panics when the kernel is not named mach_kernel.




Exciting stuff, huh?

Out of respect for the Voodoo team can we have the source code published as well?

Qoopz 9.8 diff patch is released with the kernel, is it what you are looking for?

try this script, it downloads and builds xnu and all dependencies. if for some rare reason, libc fails to build, temporarily mv /usr/lib/dtrace while building it.

Tried on AMD, it works.
There is no crash or bug so far.

Keep going!

Tried on AMD too. Everything went perfect until I tried to run the Dropbox application. I was prompted to enter the admin password and voila - kernel panic :)

Here's the screenshot: http://dl.getdropbox...60/DSC00622.JPG

BTW I tried to install Qoopz 9.8.0, AnV 9.7.0 and even Voodoo 9.5.0 and it's still absolutely the same :( I use iDeneb v1.6.

Can be something done about that? Or can it be caused by some other extension or fix installed during the installation of iDeneb?

man i have the same thing. it started after 10.5.6 update and switching to voodoo kernel, so it seems that problem in it. i don't know, how to fix it to avoid the kp, so used to delete dropbox, though it's rather useful app.

No need to delete Dropbox. Go in to

/Applications/Dropbox/Contents/Resources/

and delete the file FinderLoadCM. If you can't do this on startup because Dropbox starts up before you can delete the file, you will have to delete it in single user mode (-s boot flag).

Exactly. Parallels kernel panics when the kernel is not named mach_kernel.

I run the voodoo2 kernels and both Paralels and VMware-Fusion. The method I use to get around this issue is a symlink. It also has the advantage of protecting you if an apple update replaces mach_kernel.

For example, assuming your kernel is named mach_kernel.voodoo2 You can do the following:
sudo -s
password
cd /
rm mach_kernel
ln -s mach_kernel.voodoo2 mach_kernel

On my system it looks like this:
root ~ # ls -al /mach_kernel*
lrwxr-xr-x@ 1 root  admin		23 Aug 23 17:11 /mach_kernel -> mach_kernel.voodoo2
-rw-r--r--@ 1 root  wheel  10822172 Jul 15 19:57 /mach_kernel.ctfsys
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root  admin   5075716 Aug 23 17:10 /mach_kernel.voodoo2

Then, edit your com.apple.Boot.plist and change the kernel name to mach_kernel.voodoo2

That should help Parallels or VMware-Fusion run and if apple updates the kernel the worst you should need is to rebuild the symlink.

i had the same problem, and i found out why. iATKOS boots with /custom for the kernel, i fixed it for myself by following the symlink post made in this thread after i copied the kernel "custom" and renamed it mach_kernel.voodoo2 and then there's no need to edit booting or anything, and it ran right off the bat! hope that helps better with the iATKOS install! :rolleyes:
