Much thanks for helping put all this together!

The only issue I have is idle sleep. I figured out my system idle sleeps correctly as long as Safari is closed. When I use RIP3IanNet auto-sleep works even when Safari is open, but about 1/3 times a try to resume the monitor doesn't come back on (no signal from GPU). I could try the RIP script again (changed a couple things since I last tried), but does anyone have a solution to the black screen issue or is there something simple that can be made to allow idle sleep to work when Safari is open?

I had that symptom using an unstable overclock, set to default speed to test.

Hey guys,

Anyone got their 285 working properly in Lion?

My card is stuck on Performance (Level two) and won't go into idle mode.

Cheers.

Yes, are you using the solution in note 1?

You mean point 22 in the first post?

If then Yes ;)


By the way how are you monitoring performance states of the GTX 285? by lookign at Memory Info in nvclock?

Cheers.


UPDATE: It seems Power Management only works when a single monitor is used (from either DVI ports)

When both ports are in use the Card remains in Power Level 2.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated :)

Occasionally I'm getting kernel panics on wake, whether using a USB keyboard or a bluetooth magic mouse.
These are the relevant lines from console:
Aug 15 17:57:24 Jamess-Mac-Pro kernel[0]: Wake reason: IGBE EHC1
Aug 15 17:57:24 Jamess-Mac-Pro kernel[0]: The USB device Keyboard Hub (Port 5 of Hub at 0xfd000000) may have caused a wake by issuing a remote wakeup (2)

Aug 15 17:57:25 Jamess-Mac-Pro kernel[0]: HID tickle 160 ms
Aug 15 17:57:25 Jamess-Mac-Pro kernel[0]: EIR is not supported.

Any ideas what's causing this?

Would you show a picture of the KP, and did you patch AppleRTC?

Yes AppleRTC is patched. I'll upload a screenshot the next time it does it as last time I wasn't in verbose mode.

Friends,

I have this error when trying to use FaceTime on 10.7: "The server encountered an error processing registration. Please try again later".

I saw on the other thread there are quite a number of users having the same issue.
I wonder if you guys with the same motherboard has a success with it. I would like to mention that AppStore is working fine.

More info on the setup:
OSX 10.7
Chameleon Rev 1377
Kexts in Extra/Extensions
EvOreboot.kext
IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext
RealtekRTL81xx_Lnx2Mac.kext
fakesmc.kext

I am using 10.6.8 AppleRTC to avoid CMOS reset when reboot after sleep.

org.chameleon.Boot.plist has this entry
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>

Any advise?

Cheers

Here's a command to verify that with;

[mac05:~] me% ioreg -lS -w0 | grep -A11 en0 |egrep "BSD Name|IOBuiltin"
| | | | "BSD Name" = "en0"
| | | | "IOBuiltin" = Yes

Thanks d00d, I can confirm the command gives the same result.

Does using the following after moving your extensions to SLE affect the behavior?
<key>UseKernelCache</key>
<string>Yes</string>

I was getting a number of odd issues using the SL style Extensions.mkext in Li.

You are right d00d, thanks, I was wondering why Li reloaded all the kexts. The key above helps this part (and other strange booting errors are gone too from kernel log), but I still cannot login to FaceTime.

during the boot process, I got this message in kernel.log, do you know what is this actually? this doesn't stop Li to boot up.
Aug 18 20:24:11 GigaMacPro kernel[0]: nstat_lookup_entry failed: 2nstat_lookup_entry failed: 2
Aug 18 20:24:11 GigaMacPro kernel[0]: nstat_lookup_entry failed: 2

I found the above flag makes Li ignores the kexts in EE, so I moved all the kexts I mentioned before into SLE, and the kext for ethernet into IONetworking plugins directory.

I am wondering why FaceTime is not working, I read on the other thread a particular earlier Chameleon revision helps. I will try that and update again.

By the way, does FaceTime works on your Li setup?

I get that error occasionally too.
From what I've read it also occurs on Apple hardware, and it appears to be harmless.
I don't have a camera attached, so I can't experiment with getting FaceTime to work.

Some notes on WOL (wake on LAN);

I couldn't understand why I could remotely wake my MacPro4,1 for up to a few minutes after sleep, but after that I couldn't.

It turned out that the Solaris machine I was attempting to wake it from was dropping the record of my MacPro4,1 from it's ARP cache after awhile.

Adding a persistent entry solved the issue;

sun01:/export/home/me# arp mac05
mac05 (192.168.1.25) -- no entry
sun01:/export/home/me# arp -s mac05 00:24:1d:2c:f6:23
sun01:/export/home/me# arp mac05
mac05 (192.168.1.25) at 0:24:1d:2c:f6:23 permanent
sun01:/export/home/me# wol -h mac05 00:24:1d:2c:f6:23
Waking up 00:24:1d:2c:f6:23...

I'm selling my EVGA MacPro5,1, minus PSU, GPU, DVD and HD.
The MB is fit into a Lian-Li PC-X1000 by rotating a custom fitted Mountain Mods MB tray 90 degrees into the case.
The goal was to provide the best air flow by positioning the CPUs so the fans would blow front to back.
The PSU base has been moved to allow access to the ports, and your PSU would be tiewrapped directly to it instead of against the back of the case.

Cost;
2 Intel 2.67GHz 6 core X5650 CPUs ($925 each) $1850
2 Noctua NH-D14 Heatsinks ($87 each) $174
1 Indigo Xtreme Thermal Interface $20
1 EVGA 270-WS-W555-A1 MB $600
12 Kingston KVR1333D3E9SK2/2G DIMMs $232
1 Apple USB Ethernet Adapter $29
1 Lian-Li PC-X1000 Case $350
1 Mountain Mods HPTX-PAN MB tray $40
1 Mountain Mods MODIOP IO Panel $20
___
$3315

Links to eBay;
CPUs
MB

Send me a PM with your phone number if you're interested in any of the parts that aren't on eBay.

Looking for $2450.
Prefer to sell to someone who can pick it up in southern NH or on Cape Cod, but I could ship.

33k on Geekbench. impressive. How well does it run? I've always had Gigabyte boards.

33k on Geekbench. impressive. How well does it run? I've always had Gigabyte boards.

It's 24 threads (2 CPUs x 6 cores x 2 threads) compared to my Gigabyte's 8 (1 CPU x 4 cores x 2 threads), so it can do a lot of things at once, but for what I use it for that's overkill.
One of the reasons for building it was that I needed 24GB of memory and 4GB DIMMs were expensive, so I could get what I needed with cheaper 2GB DIMMs.
The savings were offset by the cost of the more expensive CPUs, but I wanted to try something different.
Now that the price has come down I can buy 6 4GB DIMMS for around $240 for my Gigabyte.

Hi guys,

I have some trouble getting stuck at boot with ”sound assertion fmikeydriver” errors upon boot since 10.7.1.

Posted Image

I had this in 10.7 too until i added ”layout889.xml” and ”Platforms.xml” to the AppleHDA.kext, but it doesn't seem to help anymore in 10.7.1 (I guess since Apple updated AppleHDA.kext).

Any ideas what to do?
I can't even boot now since the process stops at the picture above.

I have a DSDT that has been working fine, so I guess nothing should have to change in that?

Thankful for any help.

Apple updated AppleHDA.kext in 10.7.1, so you would have to apply the modified one in post 1, item 14E again, but it shouldn't stop the boot either way.

Hmm so it's not enough to run digital dreamer's script to put the two .xml files within AppleHDA.kext?
This seemed to work in 10.7 at least.

The modified one in post 1 item 14E, isn't that older than the one I had working with Lion 10.7?
Maybe I should try to get hold of that version instead.

Hmm...
I noticed that if I wait long enough at boot I get ”Resetting IOCatalogue”, but here it seems to stop. At least I waited 20 minutes at this stage and it didn't change.
