I'll move it to the help topic, since it's not a kernel thing but a post-install thing. Google about CMOS reset OSX, it's not an AMD issue but affects all hacks.

RC13 is giving me an error on launching Cinebench. Other previous versions would cause the red pixel error, but this is the first kernel that has caused it to refuse to open completely. RC8 seems to be running smooth as silk on my system now, however.

Thanks for all your hard work!! Much appreciated.

Not sure if this is related to the kernel, but some of my .mov files are badly corrupted, and show a green or black thumbnail. Others play fine. This is the same systemwide, be it thru Quicktime Player, FCPX, MPlayerX, iTunes, etc...

Is this a kernel issue? Or something I should be asking in the Help Topic...? Thanks guys.

hi bronya
congrats! rc13 kernel is pretty stable
cpu: amd athlon 64 x2 7850 be

somewhere opemu has a bug!
i dont know how can i get more information of what is happening. nowadays everybody can reproduce the bug:
launching Maxima (Maxima, a Computer Algebra System. http://maxima.sourceforge.net/), or trying to compile it with HomeBrew (The missing package manager for OS X. http://mxcl.github.io/homebrew/). seems that the issue happens when it calls SBCL (Steel Bank Common Lisp. http://www.sbcl.org/)
the affected thread will not respond, and the kernel will enter a loop, printing "32 bit opemu wrong instruction" or "64 bit opemu wrong instruction".

ps: if there is a way to get more information of opemu please let me know so as we can obtain moar information

Tried Bronya RC7/8/12/13. RC13 instant reboots and the other ones gives me kp's on efinvram 5~10 mins after the desktop arrives. They all seem to run pretty fast and stable although the efi problem, i'll search for a workaround but i'll be thankful if someone points me the way ;) I've installed 10.7 using Shane's kernel then applied 10.7.5 combo update and switched to Bronya's kernels. mac_carol says that rolling back Chameleon was helpful for these problems but i tried that and ended up with a non-bootable system, Chameleon was getting stucked just after the partition selection menu. Anyway i must thank all the devs and the community for the help and support. Cheers...

As for me, i'm back again using my Lion 10.7.5 partition as the main system on my AMD machine, because i finally manage to set things correctly for my card to boot with GraphicsEnabler=No, thus enabling HDMI audio. Since the machine is used mostly as a HTPC, HDMI is simply crucial, and with Mountain Lion it was an easy task to enable it. Now that i have it enabled also for Lion, there's no reason to undergo all those graphical glitches, which in Lion can be easily avoided booting in 32-bit kernel mode, rendering the system in a truly flawless state - with the plus that booting in 32-bit mode, i managed to install an old ATIPATA kext (courtesy of iFire), meaning that now i can access an old Windows PATA disk i have from inside OSX.

For everyone's information, i still use the RC7 version of the kernel.

All the best!
