can this

help?

reading the GCC manpages, is there a way to tell the compiler to generate a target for a non supplementalsse3 capable target?

P.S.: bholland is working on it too: he's indeed closer than me at this point to make it work. However, his patches target Pentium D 64-bit (hear it, PookyMacMan?), but should be adaptable to AMD somehow. So, good luck and many thanks to him!

Haha, yup I heard it. :D I'm very happy to see this progress. Man if I didn't have school, I would love to get into this more...in the meantime, great job!! :)

Later on I might be able to throw my old Pentium D hack together to test kernel stuff...I'll have to make sure I still have all the parts.

NEW BETA KERNEL!

Will post the diff later (UPDATE: here it is ). Only one change, i added cpu_infop->vector_unit = 6 to the bottom of the if/else that starts at line 424 of MachineRoutines.c.

All credits to bholland, it was him that created this workaround.

Test it. Post reports and pics. Boot with connatic (yeah, with a typo).

Here are my two machines with this kernel--I don't think the panic's any different from last time, but here goes anyway.

Spakk, i swear to you: if we had five more like you, AMD would have been roaring the Mountain Lion tune long time ago. Thank you very much indeed for your enthusiasm and engagement on our little project.

I already have the maxxus see emulator - it's precisely the one i've been trying to use as a draft for a ssse3 emulator, with little succes yet. Meklort once sent me a link to it, but at the time i'd already found it by myself. Now i'm looking desperately for the new one, from the voodoo team, since it's newer, faster and written in a language i'm confortable with, plain C. But, thanks to your links to pages i'd had already read, now i remember why i can't find the voodoo emulator anywhere: it was this rift, this awful mess, that made some devs decide to keep their sources closed, unfortunately. Shameful.

For myself, i'm working on it: started these days to learn the syntax for a new assembler, HLA, and i'm already playing with it. As soon as i become comfortable with this syntax, which is btw far simpler than traditional asm, i start to deal with our major issue again. At the same time, Brandon Holland is making great advances on patching the ML kernel for Pentium-Ds, so good news on the legacy Intel front.

Stay tuned!

thanks for the flowers theconnatic,

I try to do my Best. It's just a shame I can not programming. I have somewhere once in the course of time found a Linux code file, where many AMD CPUS had been raised therein.
Once I find this code snippet, I'll write the link in here.

Maybe you could use something from here,
Mac Lion AMD kernel source diff from ZackehSoul http://pastebin.com/z4K2idrf ZackehSoul has also listed in the diff file the AMD Phenom K10 processor.

x86 Open64 Compiler Suite more here with download> http://developer.amd...es/default.aspx

Overview

The x86 Open64 compiler system is a high performance, production quality code generation tool designed for high performance parallel computing workloads. The x86 Open64 environment provides the developer the essential choices when building and optimizing C, C++, and Fortran applications targeting 32-bit and 64-bit Linux platforms.
The x86 Open64 compiler system offers a high level of advanced optimizations, multi-threading, and processor support that includes global optimization, vectorization, interprocedural analysis, feedback directed optimizations, loop transformations, and code generation which extracts the optimal performance from each x86 processor core.
The x86 Open64 Compiler Suite simplifies and accelerates development and tuning for x86, AMD64 (AMD® x86-64 Architecture), and Intel64 (Intel® x86-64 Architecture) applications. The x86 Open64 compilers create a strong foundation for building robust, high performance parallel code through MPI, OpenMP®, and auto-parallelization along with highly optimized libraries*.

Features<a name="zero">

The x86 Open64 Compiler Suite provides the following features to help you generate high-performance multi-threaded applications for multi-core platforms.
  • Extended proactive loop optimizations for improved loop-fusion, if-merging, loop-unswitching, loop-interchange and if-condition pre-computation.
  • Added support for partial vectorization(simdization). We now have two slightly different approaches which may help different cases. –LNO:simd=3 could help certain cases and could use -LNO:psimd_iso=ON and -LNO:psimd_iso_unroll=ON which could benefit other cases
  • Added new peep-hole optimizations including improve sign extension codes, register, usage etc.
  • Improvements to dispatch scheduling in terms of alignment, padding, instruction size etc. You can enable this using the flag -CG:dsched
  • Improved performance of certain class of intrinsic such as mm_set* through better handling of CONSTRUCTORs and CONSTs
  • Added support to unconditionally generate non-temporal stores.
  • General correctness improvements including bug fixes for problems in handling BOZ constants, constant folding in Fortran data statements, better handling of floating point rules, handling complex division overflows etc.
  • You can enable this new instructions in Piledriver core using the -march=bdver2. Alternately you can pick and choose the ISA to be enabled using -mfma (for FMA3), -mfma4, -mbmi, -mtbm flags
  • Please refer to ReleaseNotes for further details

Managed to build a custom libsystem_c.dylib with no ssse3 code, but it doesn't seem to work. Probably has something to do with the fact that other libraries link to it and its probably missing dependencies. Doesn't log anything just freezes in the usual place :/ Either way your going to want an ssse3 emulator cause I'm sure there are plenty of other places where ssse3 is being used throughout the entire os. I'm going to have to put the project on the back burner for now until work calms down a bit. Good luck.

sorry if I was nervous again. I read Prashant Vaibhav worked for the mercuryquad developers team also.
As written, the code tell me nothing. If you checking whether this is important or not here.

spakk, thanks for your effort.
im sorry to tell that i dont know programming, i cannot help in this hard task.
my cpu is amd kuma 7850 (k10 family) wich has no SupplementalSSE3 extensions, i dont see how to install osx-10.8.
actually the only thing that i can do is test kernel on osx-10.6 but i suppose that kernel and modular extensions are not compatible due to different version target between them.
my testing scenario is not optimal. first thing i think i should have is a working osx-10.8 copied on a partition. is this possible with a non-ssse3 cpu?

You can try my method. So far I have installed many versions of OSX with this method for AMD.

1.) You need a PC with Intel SSSE3 CPU with running (Installed) Lion 10.7 * version.
2.) An external HDD with min. 40 GB of storage
3.) A "Install OSX Lion Mountain 10.8" from Mac App Store
4.) Download ##### for Mountain Lion
5.) TonyMac How-To http://www.tonymacx8...l-based-pc.html
6.) modified kext driver for your AMD-Hardware

7.) After you install (see TonyMac How-to) "Mountain Lion on your first partition on your external hard drive (about 8-10 GB 1.Partition) then you put all modified AMD kexts
in S/L/E your 1st partition. Then you copy your "Extra" folder from 10.6.* and put it on root of your first partition.
8.) Install from your Intel PC Mountain Lion 10.8 on your 2.Partition your external hard drive.
Start Mountain Lion Install with boot flag: -v -f cpus=2 arch=x86_64 . Finally, you install the "XNU.diff" and 'connatic" modified kernel on root
9.) connect external hard drive to the AMD PC
10.) Adjust AMD PC BIOS!
11.) Start Your AMD PC and test if system starts

The installation work but we have to wait a while on the modified kernel and hope theconnatic realize it.

Good luck

Hi theconnatic
Hi Brandon Holland

I liked to ask whether the last source code (by Maxxuss, rufus, and semthex from 07/26/07) I've uploaded here, for the new kernel patch is useful or not?

I'm traveling right now, so i won't be working on the kernel until the second week of november.

Hi theconnatic.

I had recently this kernel panic message on my AMD (see # 278).
/osfmk/vm/vm_resident.c:757 ---> in the original "vm_resident.c" in line 757 is nothing! can you check your vm_resident.c , please


here is my second result: :wallbash:
what should I do?

In case you read this there has been a kernel panic.
There is no {censored} suport for running Lion on AMD.
You have to try fixing this yourself.
panic (cpu 0 caller 0xffffff80002871b7 ) "pmap_steal_memory" @/Users/Jimihendrix/Desktop/XNUPATCHED2/osfmk/vm/vm_resident.c:757

System uptime in nanoseconds: 0




In fact, it is so that when you boot with boot flag: - x , then comes the panic message

I think that the error is since Leopard 10.5 and nobody has adjusted this error.

I don't know if I am being helpful here, it's been years since I last came here but the Leopard Voodoo XNU source is here: http://code.google.c...SourceCode?tm=4

Hopefully that can be of some use. I don't code but yeah.

Thank you for your quick response SS01. The website I already know, I can not handle it, that's my problem.

@ SS01, I found this website, I will try to create mach_kernel
