Ok lets start this off with Snow Leopard


Adobe CS6 Master Collection

[Sinetek's kernel]

Dreamweaver
Indesign
Flash BUILDER
Prelude
Speedgrade
Media Encoder
Bridge (opens but then crashes)

[Legacy kernel]

Flash
Fireworks
Dreamweaver
Flash Builder
Indesign
Acrobat Pro
Media Encoder

Now in the console, opening Photoshop on Snow Leopard with legacy kernel & sinetek.

[0x0-0x33033].com.adobe.Photoshop[1752] The allowed processors are: Intel® Core™ Duo processors and compatible Intel processors with supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) instruction support.

com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[90] ([0x0-0x37037].com.adobe.Photoshop[1785]) Exited with exit code: 1

So a kernel with the SSSE3 emulator seems to be the way forward in Snow Leopard, I think.

Console Mountain Lion.

No SSSE3 error.

com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[131]: ([0x0-0x19019].com.adobe.Photoshop[223]) Exited with code: 1

Since Sinetek's kernel for Snow Leopard has built-in SSSE3 emulation, i think the obstacle here is more likely a CPUID check.

P.S.: if it's really a CPUID check, is there a way to dodge without binpatching lots of binaries on the system? (the results with AnV's new patcher have been mixed).

No ways! I didn't know SSSE3 emulation was in the Snow Leopard Kernel! That's awesome!

Booted into Sinetek's kernel and ran Photoshop within terminal like so

Duran-Keeleys-Mac-mini:~ durankeeley$ /Applications/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS6/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS6.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS6 ; exit;
The error on exit was.
Segmentation fault

And ofcourse with the legacy_kernel

Duran-Keeleys-Mac-mini:~ durankeeley$ /Applications/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS6/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS6.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS6 ; exit;
The exit would be:
The allowed processors are: Intel® Core™ Duo processors and compatible Intel processors with supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) instruction support.

@theconnactic, how hard would it be for me to maybe add the SSSE3 emulation to the legacy kernel? Is it possible? (I have no clue how to compile but if I'm gonna try help I gotta learn!)

Maybe if you ask Andy Vandjick, he's always around.

Anyway, the exit message is a clear indicative os a CPUID check.

Best regards.

I ran Marvin's AMD Utility to get the list of CPUID's and binaries, ran amd_insn_patcher over the files with cpuids and no changes there, same errors. Uploaded them, if you wanna check it out. https://www.dropbox....ez1b/cZGp-zFbhA

Awesome I just sent him a message :D

Not able to get Photoshop working, trying to get a 32-bit kernel with SSSE3 to test. If you can get Photoshop please let me know. Tried patching but I think there is a check for SSSE3. If you can help me compile a kernel I seriously would be so grateful (installed Xcode, dropped an old voodoobuild into terminal and it just will not build so I'm really doing something wrong as I haven't even touched the code yet)

With Bronzovka's kernel, running 32-bit with support for 64-bit processes, ssse3 built-in, 10.7.4:

Working until now:

Flash
Flash Builder
Audition
DreamWeaver
FireWorks
InDesing
AcrobatPro
Speedgrade
MediaEncoder (sometimes)

Bridge starts but crashes when you try to actually use it.

Photoshop and Illustrator doesn't start. Premiere, Prelude and After Effects freeze while loading.

Best regards.

Hey just came across this


Caution
If a program compiled with /Qx{K|W|N|B|P} is executed on a non-compatible processor, it might fail with an illegal instruction exception, or display other unexpected behavior. Executing programs compiled with /QxN, /QxB, or /QxP on unsupported processors will display the following run-time error:

Fatal Error : This program was not built to run on the processor in your system.

Did you try to run the and_insn_patcher against Photoshop's or Illustrator's binaries?

Hey yeah busy on Photoshop. No progress so far will post if there is any break through, Might run Andy's AMDAutoTool cause I'm feeling a bit lazy. :)

EDIT: Ran Andy's AMDAutoTool (in terminal as root, it's the only way it seems to work for me), Looks like it patched everything but still the error.

Fatal Error: This program was not built to run on the processor in your system.

Followed by:
The allowed processors are: Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo processors and compatible Intel processors with supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) instruction support.

EDIT 2: Doing some reading up on C++, on an ubuntu forum someone compiled a binary that included -xT and gets the same error.
That's because "-fast" currently enables "-xT -O3 -ipo -no-prec-div -static". And "-xT" means to generate specialized code to run exclusively on Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo processors, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad processors, and Intel(R) Xeon(R) processors with SSSE3.

UPDATE for Snow Leopard:
The best workaround I have found so far is Wine.

For wine you need:
Xcode 3.2
Macports

Other Info:
Internet does not work inside Wine, so DO NOT INSTALL as a Trial.
I used a Portable Photoshop CS6 inside Wine, If you install it may seem like it crashed and failed (It will say Installation Failed) but it is installing in the background.

So you're running portable Photoshop CS6 for Windows under Wine? Did you try to create a wrapper for it with Wineskin Winery?

Best regards!

theconnactic,
Yeah used a portable Photoshop CS6.

Didn't use a Wineskin with Snow Leopard I'm using wine as a compiled MacPort thanks to xcodebuild working in SL. Used Wineskin for Lion and it works :)
Please See Attached.

So I'm gonna take a guess and say that Illustrator will work too. So we have Premiere, Prelude and After Effects left to deal with.

Ok so dragging is a problem on my Snow Leopard Wine BUT works perfectly on Lion Wineskin.

Remember to associate PSD's when setting up Wineskin. Works well I can open a psd, edit and save!

EDIT: No go with Illustrator! Might be the portable I'm using if someone else can check this please.

EDIT 2: I was right, bad portable, tried another and it opens (See Attached)! BUT Creating a New Document or open a Illustrator file ends up crashing Illustrator.

I can confirm we made it! And all methods described in this topi will also work in 32-bit kernel mode using Bronzovka's 10.7.5 latest kernel (see Lion testing thread):

It's important to notice that this is a workaround to make a (mostly) full CS6 experience possible on AMD machines running Mac OSX, but that's not the optimal solution, since we're making alterations to CS6's files, instead of perfecting the kernel so we can run a vanilla Adobe CS6 installation. Therefore, our next goal should perfect the kernel so it doesn't crash with the MMXCore plugin used by CS6.

Best regards!
