@Sinetek could you please compile a 10.6.8 kernel with newest changes? I'd like to test it for snow leopard as well as lion, thanks :)

Justin Edwards: No offense, but why do you want one? Snow Leopard works flawlessly on AMD as it is, thanks to Nawcom. :)

Sinetek: Strange. I'll bug you one last time: what are your specs? Oh, and if you're in VMWare, I urge you to test on actual hardware.

If anyone wants to pop in the chat from their web browser without downloading a client, you can do it here. Just type in your username and hit go. Note that you must change mib_xxx to your username - due to misuse by spammers, mib_xxx names are now banned. :3

Uhh..
Hello? Sinetek JUST made changes to the sysenter stuff. Meaning no patching etc, for smooth snow leopard . 2nd -force64 on snow leopard still doesn't allow finder m4v quick look due to no ssse3 emulator lol

Just use nawcom's legacy kernel? as far as I know, snow leopard does not use ssse3 at all. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I already use it, and you are wrong QuickTime and safari on 64-bit crash when viewing videos unless In 32 bit I want full 64 lol

@sinetek tested kernel on lion, booted with -legacy arch=i386 booted fine, xpchelper issues present, I tried the testcase program, kernel panic upon loading

I'm not getting past "BSD root: disk3s2, major 14, minor 10" with that kernel. (BEFORE "Kernel is LP64") Also, I don't see any "Enabling SSSE3 Emulator..." line. Is is completely silent now?

The sources for the Opcode emulator have been revamped and tested, and it works great for 32/64 now.
Sysenter emulation has been added, so 32b processes now start. However, there is a really strange problem on my hardware, NO 64b process starts successfully at all. This is with -force64. Why could that be??

Any chance we could see the patch code please? I am interested in having a look over the Christmas vacation.

the only mention of BSD Root I've found on the forums is way back from Tiger days, and has to do with corrupted ramdisks. hmm..

Try removing other hard drives apart from the one Lion is installed and try boot. I would test but I broke my lion install.

Maybe it's not getting stuck @ BSD Root, but the thing that comes after BSD Root?

Tested the kernel on my system but it´s the same.
It stops 3 lines after BSD Root.

What are those 3 lines? Something about jnl replay_journal? Like this:

Dec 24 11:22:33 localhost kernel[0]: jnl: unknown-dev: replay_journal: from: xxxxxxxx to: xxxxxxxx (joffset 0x000000)


You have to patch dyld to make it work. There is a huge problem on my machine with 64 bit processes, they don't spawn at all.
I have an exam tomorrow, but I have an interesting idea about debugging I'll be checking out after that.


Thank you! :)

Try with busratio=xx?
I don't actually have any clue why, but it has fixed my issues with random KPs. The freq and bus freq seem to be right though.
