These nVidia issues are really disheartening. But i'll keep testing and researching here.

Andy, i tried your kernel, same results as Shane!

Best regards!

Hey Andy, im not sure how you want bug repots...but just a heads up. With your new kernel and the magic trackpad this happened when I clicked the trackpad preference pane.

Kernel parameters: npci=0x3000 -v -f -x busratio=155

It may be because im in safe boot(Nvidia)

Thanks to Sinetek we have the latest sources.
I merged them with mine (and did some additions).
I improved his opemu to also do 32-bit kernel opemu (needed for Lion, when somebody merges it with Lion xnu sources).
I also removed the -nosse42bit (doesn't set it anymore)
You can use -nossse3bit but it isn't recommended anymore (thanks to kernel opemu).
It also sets the SSSE3 supported bit in the cpu features.
It should be recompiled though as you know my issues with Xcode atm (FIPS test fails).
Here is the diff + my built result... ;)
Theconnactic or somebody else with kernel build tools: Could you recompile and post from my diff? thanks in advance :D


First attempt: <see pic below>

Second attempt after disabling uTorrent auto-startup:

FIPS USER Space POST Success!
/me logs in
/me attempts to open Firefox, only to realize the Ethernet's not working. Posted Image You know, it helps when Ethernet's IPv4 is enabled in system preferences...
/me open TextWrangler and gets a KP identical to the one below...

Its not just NVIDIA. Also on ATI graphic issues appear.

@ Andy
I tried your Kernel.
Fips Mode passed but it Panics in the GUI in normal Mode. -nossse3bit stocks at Kernel is lp64.
Sineteks Last Kernel boots much faster.
Graphic issues are still present.

Got same panic as the other guys with Andy's newest kernel. 32-bit opemu trap or something.

Thanks Andy :)

Here's my report:


PROs:

- I can boot the osx & login to the desktop normally, without either -x or -nossse3bit,

- it boots faster than your previous build kernel

- all FIPS TESTs are passed

Posted Image



- now the osx reports that my AMD cpu "has" the SSSE3 feature :thumbsup_anim:

Posted Image




CONs:

- the boot still takes longer time than the Sinetek's kernel

- still facing the same known graphic issue

- KP occurs when I try to open some 32-bit apps (3rd-party) ---> cpuid issue ???

Posted Image



- the VTDecoderXPCService issue will instantly result in a kernel panic, instead of popping up an error-reporting window

Posted Image



with Sinetek's kernel, it'll only pop-up this error-window (NO KP!)

Hi all,

Congratulations to everyone that can install Mountain Lion and boot! I'm having trouble installing Mountain Lion on my PC, as the installer always "fails to complete". :wallbash: I can boot into it just fine, but when I choose the installation drive and click "Install" the installer freezes, then a few moments later, it crashes. The log can be found below:

Spoiler


I booted with the following flags:
npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=Yes -v

I used the kernel "test2" here and AnV's corecrypto found at the first post of this thread.

Thanks to the devs for their hard work and dedication to the AMD Hackintosh scene!

:soldiers:

Try mach_sse42_only from here. I think it's the best working kernel at the moment.

One more PRO I found with the latest AnV's kernel ( amd_kernel.zip ) <--- SSSE3 detected


I can boot the osx with the original vanilla 10.8.2 corecrypto.kext (unpatched)

Posted Image





And it still can pass all the FIPS TESTS

Thanks for uploading vanilla corecrypto! :) I already removed my backup xD

What GPU? Try also with -x. And try with Sinetek's kernels, mach_sse42_only seems to work best. :)

The latest kernel from Anv boots fine, however when i login, this happens:

On boot it also says something about NullCPUPowerManagement kext, but i don't even have it installed anywhere!

I'm back and have redesigned the kernel some more.
It needs testing A.S.A.P. (+feedback ;))
Source diff is included.
I've also made the diff ready for Lion (needs merging).
Pentium D and AMD users should like it ;)
It shouldn't panic anymore :D
Don't ask which version it is please (it's 10.8.2 lol)

Thanks! You're a genius, mate! :king:

PRO:

- it boots normally, without either -x or -nossse3bit

- it's still compatible with the original vanilla corecrypto.kext

- the osx can detect the SSSE3

- of course, it can run 64 bit apps

Posted Image




- and it can also open & run 32-bit apps, WITHOUT getting the 32-bit opemu panic

Posted Image




- there's NO VTDecoderXPCService issue when I try to open a movie with QuickTime-X

Paul, which GPU do you use? That's the crucial info now...

Andy, i cannot test your kernel at this moment, i am going to do it later. The first iteration give me a kernel panic with the opemu when i tried to boot without -nossse3bit. With the flag, it stucks at Kernel is LP64.

Best regards!
