Heya guys.

So I got a fully native hackintosh using retail 10.6>combo update 10.6.7>legacy kernel 10.6.7.

Everything works great, I can run photoshop, garageband and virtualdj all together, no probs.

But when I go onto the net, if I visit insanelymac for example, I get KP. Or if I log onto facebook I get KP. Anybody got an idea of what it could be?


I'd really appreciate somebody's input on this.

Boot with -v to enable verbose boot along with additional error logging, then when it KP's again, text will appear on screen showing what caused the KP, if you need help interpreting it, take a photo (with a camera) and post it. Gonna guess it's IONetworkingFamily.kext or IO80211Family.kext at fault, but at this point, just a guess.

Well you see, I downloaded half a gigabyte from software updates, and it worked like a charm. Only when I use a browser I get the KP.

And I use a wireless usb adaptor. I've tried connecting with ethernet too, still get the KP.


And I do boot with -v, and when I get the KP it doesn't show anything useful to be honest. Only spams "invalid kernel ip won't attempt to handle trap".

I was browsing facebook and I managed to catch the kernel panic. So, here it is:

Any ideas?


And BTW, it can't be VoodooHDA because I installed with retail. Voodoo wasn't even included in the installation.


EDIT: Just saw the TSCSyncAMD thing. Will look into it and post results.

The TSCSyncAMD appears to work beautifully! I'm running kernel panic free now!! :D :D :D

One question though, I need to boot with -f -v or else it won't load. any tips on that?

EDIT: It's all okay now. It seems to work with just -v.

EDIT2: Got too happy too soon. Looks like I got another KP when I was browsing FB. God damn it.

I read those guys used the kext because they got KPs after like 3 hrs of use. Mine can stay on for 100 years, but when I go browse a little I get the KP. I seriously don't know what's going on.

EDIT3: WOW! IT certainly did fix YouTube video playback though! Finally the videos are smooth and not choppy anymore! yaay!


But I still have to find a solution for the kernel panics. They mostly happen when I'm on FB. I wonder what causes them...

Caused b using an AMD cpu :) I'm joking, but I'm not at the same time. May not matter as much in Windows, but imho, for hackintoh, paying a bit more for Intel is worth every penny and then some. In the mean time see if any different KP messages show up, upon reboot from KP always check Console logs first thing to see if any pattern of similar messages just before KP

Well I didn't intentionally buy this build for it to be a hackintosh. It's pretty old as well. I just found it laying around and brought it back to life by buying a SATA HD, and a SATA optical drive, and also a new graphics card.

Total cost was really low, and it was totally worth it, since it's now a pretty solid machine. If I was to make a build for hackintosh only, of course I'd buy intel.

It makes me wonder how YouTube is perfectly stable, running great, but facebook and some other sites KP... Considering loading videos is a tougher job than scrolling through text and pictures. It just doesn't make sense to me.

maybe issue with Safari or Webkit then? Can try separate Webkit build available on-line, is open-source project Safari is based on, so same look and feel.

So you think it's the way webkit loads pages that makes them crash on the AMD? It's plausible. What do I need to download from that webpage?

Updated to 10.6.8 btw. All is stable, running great, (Final Cut Pro 10 runs incredibly well), but the KP still occurs while browsing -.-

Try another browser (Firefox, Opera,etc) and see if it crashes too?

Of course I've tried different browsers. Still get KP though.

Then this doesn't have to do with Safari nor Webkit as Opera and Firefox use each different engine.

That's correct too.

Man... I've never been so puzzled with a hackintosh before xD. I mean, everything runs so perfectly but I can't browse? what the hell!? xD

YouTube runs perfectly well though. When I google stuff I get the KP, but mostly when I'm browsing insanelymac, facebook, etc.

Seriously can't figure this thing out.

Does it KP if you download for example, a very large torrent? or using some kind of P2P software (to test if it crashes when making connections) seem to be related to the network subsystem!

I downloaded team fortress 2 using steam.

It downloaded 10 gigs like a champ.

KP only happens when I browse facebook MOST of the time. But it sometimes also happens on other sites. I remember for example going to ehow because it was in a google result for something I was looking for, and it KPed almost instantly when ehow loaded up.

hmm very strange pattern.

I would check anyway a large torrent (NOT regular HTTP/FTP download nor Steam, needed to make many connections over time) and see if it crashes too, your issue seems to occur when making many connections to a server (that normally happens when regular browsing, video streaming does not if I'm correct) and this would narrow down your problem considerably.

I downloaded a 5 gig torrent as well.

It downloaded it like a champ. 450KB/s average speed.

Nah, no way it's the kernel. If it was, it would crash when running something heavy like garageband or final cut pro X.
