I believe I got it all running on my p5e3 deluxe wifi ap, 8 GB ram, 8800 GTS
Here is what I did to get osx 10.6.6 running on the p5e3 deluxe wifi ap.
In my bios i set the ata controlelrs to achi and disabled
energy saver 4.0c
2.7 and installed osx 10.6.3, installed the 10.6.6 combo update.
downloaded dsdt se
and araxis merge
using the p5e3 deluxe dsdt from here: http://code.google.c...dsl?repo=deluxe
i compared my extracted dsdt to this one using araxis merge and copied the parts that are listed, leaving the ram and cpus parts untouched.
pasted new the dsdt back into dsdt se, compiled and saved it on the desktop as dsdt.aml
then i ran #####
3.3 with the user dsdt and the following options:
LNx2Mac Realtek lan drivers
I manually added the ad1988b.kext using kext util.
then I added the c and p states and suggested on google code to the com.apple.boot.plist
I noticed that sleep didnt kick in with the energy saver settings. when i set it to sleep after 5 minutes, it never went to sleep after 10 minutes. that drove me crazy.
It actually works but i guess osx was busy and it took much longer (30 min) for sleep to kick in. so I never noticed while sitting at the pc, as I never waited long enough.
I always thought I wasnt doing the install correctly, while all the time it already worked.
I also installed the tonymacx86 nvidia drivers,
not sure if they do anything though.
I eventually found this tool:
and now manual sleep, timed sleep works perfectly. shudown and reboot work without any kexts (NO nullpower, evoreboot, openhaltrestart, sleepenabler and OldNapalm suggested.)
I still get system shutdown false and shutdown reason 3 in the boot log, but I read somewhere that this is "normal" even on apple hardware. (that also drive me nuts).
also the appleHDA complains and there is a post somehwere to fix it changing the pci vendor id or something. but my sounds works, so i didnt bother.
thanks all for the help in this forum!!! I cant wait to setup my next hackintosh.
