Hello,

 

Timewalker's guide is excellent. works like a charm. Thanks him for that. Jus t have a question: is HDMI (Video audio) connection working in dell xps 17 L702x Optimus? or is it just audio out working?

HDMI is connected to Optimus from what I remember, DP is connected to Intel, but nobody has provided me with a connector patch to pass audio through.

Hello Everyone, 

 

After longtime time just checked out OS X on my XPS 17, looks like OS X turned into resource hogger.I really don't know the reason behind this and i don't know why apple not working on reducing the memory footprint where as Microsoft reducing memory consumption with every new update to its existing OS base.

 

Checkout the pics in order to have a better understanding how memory management working in OS X and Windows. Please leave your comments and feedback on this issue.

@mackyreddy i agree that macos uses too much resources and also asks you to upgrade to a new version to use certain software. Like i can use most of the software i use with XP on win8.1 but cant use xcode on older versions. Thats the main reason that i try to upgrade all the time. Still i wonder if it behaves same on a real mac too. anyone ?

Hello Community,

 

Wanted to discuss one issue. Installed Yosemite public beta, been using it for about 2 weeks. Everything seems to be working normal, managed to fix imessage and facetime, so all is ok, except one part - i can't enable location services.

I can switch it on, lock the preference, but after some time, location service gets disconnected ( i go to preferences and the check mark is unpicked for location services on).  

 

Solved. deleted locationd folder in /var/db somwehre, it was somekind of write-read error.

Anyone could provide steps to upgrade to Yosemite on 10.9.5 chameleon ?

Or provide SSDT,DSDT,kexts required.

Clover or UEFI is not an option since i am on dual boot with win8

Cheers

 

My attempts with various #beast guides end of with installation screen but bar doesnt fill as image attached

Hello again,

 

faced an issue. My camera is not working anymore. Tried installing iousbfamily.kext's from yosemite instalation usb, no luck, tried using patched iousbfamily.kext had error with vdcs. With vanilla kexts i get the error:

and it is filling the console every 10-12 seconds with the error. I understand that it is related with the camera hub not working, but why it is happening is a mystery for me.
 
EDIT: SOLVED. Repaired home and user directory permissions from installation media.
