don't you think i't would be great a pinned post with all the known issues of every os release and update, it could save us a lot of time!!


Perhaps, but it takes a lot of time and effort to maintain it




Every version of OS X brings tons of errors for the x86 scene. To pin the known issues, we would have 14 pages of pinned topics, people needing different information, need to go through it.


We prefer encourage to learn and to understand. We have the search feature who's a pretty good tool. For most problems, there is an answer, and if not, you can open a topic for your problem. ;)

FWIW, I'm also having MIDIserver crashes occasionally on boot and occasional sound glitches in Logic if I set the buffer below 512. Probably not related but I know that several things with audio changed in 10.8.3. I have a lot of audio interfaces and MIDI devices plugged in though. Just thought I'd mention it.

Just to narrow this down a bit, what kexts are you using? I'm using pxhcd, a patched 10.8.2 applehda + hdaenabler, lnx2mac's Ethernet kext, and ncpm. Also kozlek's fakesmc

Patched AppleHDA, recent FakeSMC from kozlek and RTL8111 by Mieze. Also recent Clover UEFI and an iMac13,2 SMBIOS.

Did you have any success with your DSDT patch yet?

Sorry, I haven't had time to try it, I ended up staying late at school. I'll give it a go when I get home tomorrow.

I also stumbled across a common issue in 10.8.2 and 3 on real macs where launchd stalls shutdown. I did it yesterday and it fixed the slow shutdown on my mbp so I figured I might as well try it on my hack... Interesting enough it didn't have our with shutdown issue after turning it off 3 times on a row. I doubt that fixed it though. Anyway I'll do the dsdt patch tomorrow and let you know my results.

I got an error while compiling... It says

/Users/jamiethemorris/Library/Application Support/EvOSoftware/DSDT/DSDTFiles/dsdt.dsl 11742: [*** iASL: Read error on source code temp file /Users/jamiethemorris/Library/Application Support/EvOSoftware/DSDT/DSDTFiles/dsdt.src ***]
Error    4096 -											   syntax error, unexpected $end ^

Compilation complete. 1 Errors, 0 Warnings, 0 Remarks, 0 Optimizations

Here is my patch:

Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)
    {
	    If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05)) {}
		 Else
		 {
				 Store (Zero, P80D)
		  P8XH (Zero, Arg0)
		  PTS (Arg0)
		  If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x03))
		 {
				 If (LAnd (DTSE, LGreater (TCNT, One)))
				 {
						 TRAP (TRTD, 0x1E)
		    }
	    }

It's a very vague error so I'm not really sure what to do.

I have this problem since switching from chimera/chameleon. The laptop lights won't turn off very often if I sleep/shutdown/restart.
About sleep issue, I turned off hibernate mode and now the leds always turn off completely.
About sleep/restart, it happens very frequently, even update to the latest clover version, repair permission, safe mode also has this problems too.

You missed two curly brackets.

Your modified _PTS method should look like this:
Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)
{
    If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05)) {}
    Else
    {
        Store (Zero, P80D)
        P8XH (Zero, Arg0)
        PTS (Arg0)
        If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x03))
        {
            If (LAnd (DTSE, LGreater (TCNT, One)))
            {
                TRAP (TRTD, 0x1E)
            }
        }
    }
}

        }
    }
}


I figured it was something like that, thanks

The DSDT fix didn't work but I haven't had this problem since switching back to Chameleon. Clover was also giving me audio issues, so I'm going to stick with Chameleon for a while. It's nice having both bootloaders installed.

That's interesting. I read your previous posts again and could not figure it out for sure if you were using Clover in UEFI or in legacy mode. Can you please specify it?
What kind of audio issues did you have?

I was using uefi mode. As for the audio, it kept getting all garbled sounding (as if it was a sample rate issue or something) when I would put the buffer size lower than 512 in logic or pro tools. I could usually get it work at 256 after switching back and forth a few times, but it would eventually start to sound screwed up again. 128 wouldn't work at all. I switched back to chameleon and I didn't have this problem.

I guess it's a pick your poison thing though because chameleon intermittently freezes at login when I have my USB 3.0 drive plugged in. Probably just need a different left though

Check this thread, it might help: http://www.insanelym...-by-step-guide/
I don't really know if it applies to your board but it will definitely bring some advantage if it does.

Hi again, is your current setup working well without any shutdown problems? Some time has passed now and I'm sure the issue would have appeared several times by now, if at all.
