Hi to all,

I have a Desktop PC with motherboard GA-945GCMX-S2 working almost perfect, all files needed included in this post.

Hi, Thanks a lot for info. I've done SL installation from Leo to separated hard disk. I've compiled dsdt.dsl and have installed this with smbios.plist file to /Extra/ (sure I've set owner and permittions). But on boot I get an issue:


ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed

Have you faced with this issue?

Please advice - how can I detect the issue and debug one.





Thanks.

i think that is related to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, do you have a disabler.kext or NullCPUPM.kext installed ?


No I do not have disabler.kext or NullCPUPM.kext. I have not installed any kext.

Thanks anyway for suggest.

I´m not sure, what do you need exactly ?

RTL8169 works in my pc using DHCP or manual ip, tested sharing folder/screen.



Bonjour is Apple network zeroconf protocol, without it afp does not work.

For those who still need a tutorial, I had good luck with using the "[TOTALLY VANILLA] Retail Snow Leopard" guide:

http://www.insanelym...p...183751&st=0

Skip the dsdt step since quinielascom has so helpfully provided one plus the iaslme to make it into a dsdt.aml file. ;) Take all of the other kexts and add them into the kext folder when prompted by the guide.

When you get to phase 3 take your dsdt.aml and put it in your Extras folder sometime before step 4 and you should be good!

[edit: forgot to mention that I didn't know what to do with the BIOS SLIC file so I didn't use it]

Can someone help me to get my sound working? I have tried all different combinations of KEXTs but I can not get it to work. What should I do? Other than that it seems to work really good :-)

VoodooHDA.kext or AppleHDA.kext works fine, but you need to put it in System/Library/Extensions.

With the integrated GMA950 graphics I can only get the resolution 1024x768 to work. How can I get other resolutions to work? Do I need a special KEXT for this to work? In the current setup I have I can choose which resolution I want.

Thankful for any suggestions
