We will not move forward with the current kernel. The current kernel stops at all in the same place.
We need to be patient a few days until theconnatic for us makes a new kernel. Which, I hope it will work. :wink2:


We can only hope it will.

Can you repost a wider shot of that screen? There's output before the freeze I don't see on my machine.


If I make it wider you can't read it. I'm using iPod to take the pictures. Its all about the corecrypto.

take a picture over the entire width of the kernel panic. we can then enlarge it.

I had some fun with that image in GIMP: I hope it's a bit more readable now. :) I'll test some other kernel flags on my CPU sometime soon.

Maybe we should start working on a kernel ourselves.. the connactic has not posted in a long time, maybe he's left the project

If I knew the first thing about coding a kernel I would spent my free time working on this. If some would like to point me in the right direction etc I will take a look and see what ai can learn about.

Not yet. Remember i do it in my free time, and i have two more hacks to take care of. In fact, i came to the conclusion we're not going to advance much without a ssse3 emulator. I'm on it, but remember also that i'm learning assembly language from scratch, so it will take time.

It would be great if someone steps in and improve the kernels i already posted. Anyone with programing skills can play with my diffs so we can see what happens. :)

Great, that's the spirit. When i started this i had little C and zero assembly knowledge. Now i'm comfortable with C and learning assembly, and did make some progress with my basic knowledge. The more people to work on it, the better our chances of success. There are plenty of free material on internet about C and asm programming: google is your friend. :)

I have no knowledge of either but I am willing to try my best to help out here. I will take a leap into google and see what I can learn :)

To anyone wanting to venture him/herself in the kernel patching realm, here's the link for the latest Apple 10.8.2 kernel: http://www.opensourc...50.18.24.tar.gz

@theconnactic here is a link which I think you may find valuable in the learning of assembly:
http://tuts4you.com/...oad.php?list.17

You will get some very good experience using a debugger and Lena's tutorials can take you from zero to hero in a day or two.

Ah, there you are! Sorry if I made it sound like you weren't doing enough work, lol. I just thought maybe you'd switched to Intel like so many other AMD'ers do :P

irc.osx86.hu appears to be back up. spakk, can you please explain what you posted? All I know is that it's GPL'ed, which is going to be a problem if we have to combine it with the APSL'ed kernel

Hi SS01,

Please read this post:
Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach, by Amit Singh - is this book useful in a fully free world.
Http://blogs.fsfe.org/tobias_platen/: On the following link, at the bottom
and http://www.gnustep.o...ifications.html

http://www.gnustep.o...outGNUstep.html

compatibility should be given accordingly ?

it means:
GNUstep works with GNOME, KDE, as well as many X11-based window managers. GNUstep runs on top of X11. You can still do programming in C (since Objective-C is a pure superset of C), and GCC will eventually support the mixing of C++ and Objective-C code in the SAME file. GNUstep frees you to develop cross-platform applications without the work of developing an OS independent framework from scratch. It gives you lots of functionality, including Font Panels, Unicode strings, and even Distributed Objects.

or is it not possible?

Could you give us the "xnu-7.9.2050 OS X 10.8 Lion Mountain" they you have created (Raw folder but not the mach_kernel) for users who can try to make any adjustments.
or give information what you have made changes ​​to the xnu.

thx

@SS01, how far have you got with your mach_kernel experiments? did you had success?
