My internet connection is really slow, and I dont want to wait a week just to get the dvd (that won't work on my sse2 computer). Is it possible that someone could upload a torrent just for the kernel and other needed files. Possibly to just create a 10.4.8 updater with the new kernel in it.

I can't wait for the SSE2 fix. Hope that it will be available soon.

My specs:
Dell 8300, P4 3.0 HT (SSE2), 2GB RAM, ATI 9800 Pro, 19" TFT
I have two partitions with dualboot, one with 10.4.7 and the other with 10.4.8 JAS release (the old one)

Contact me, if you're looking for a SSE2 beta tester.

Regards
.gk

Everybody's currently stuck at 32.4%. The seeder and peer ratio is pretty bad, and it's only going to get a lot worse by the end of the day. This torrent should have been distributed to 20-30 trustworthy people so there would be a higher seed number to help it build more momentum.

Even if those seeders magically appeared, it wouldn't matter. It's officially a Torrent Gridlock. :/

As with any other JaS or OSX86 release, I will continue seeding until the next release comes along. I unfortunately was unable to get on this torrent until this morning (crummy sleep interfered :D) Looking forward to wiping my test disk and installing this beauty. :(

I suspect there is something wrong with the Torrent
When I see the downloading columns data a bit strange
I hope I am wrong

JaS has said he will add SSE2 and AMD capability to the install DVD using PPF patches. So, you need the DVD iso so you can be ready to patch it when the patches are created.

Use mifki's kernel. It has hpet and nx enabled.

That is... once we all get off of 33.4%...

Considering I'll use mifki's kernel, how is the installation different comparing to real X86 OS X installed on Macs ?
We have all (?) 10.4.8 kexts, 10.4.8 kernel, apps too...

So basically it's just removed TMP and EFI ? Or are we still using some "legacy" stuff from Maxxus work?

Unless JaS didn't include some stuff (and I know he did) then you shouldn't have to copy anything over (hacked kexts from old system optional ;P)

From here:

Quick question. In the 10.4.7 dvd we had to choose the GMA 900 package if we had a GMA 950 to get qe/ci. Do we have to do the same in this dvd?

We've only really had one... the problem was that everyone hopped on the torrent at the same time... one seeder can't handle 100 connections (or in this case 200+).
