Hey Mac.nub, perfect timing :D

wanted to insall an OSX86, but all the other releases have something or the other than i don't like, i'm pretty much an osx86 noob, but i know my *nix

question, will these work and if so, could you please tell me why (i.e. which one of the options/kexts do i have to check when i install)

CPU Type: Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 @1.83GHZ (should work)
System Memory: 2048 MB (should work)
Video Adapter: NVidia GeForce Go 7600
Monitor: Generic PnP monitor (should work)
Audio Adapter:Conexant High Definition Audio (should work)
IDE Controller: Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA controller
Storage Controller: Intel 82801G (IH7 Family) Ultra ATA Storage Controller (should work)
Optical Drive: Slimtype DVD ATA Device
Network Adapter: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG Network connection
USB:Intel 82801GB USB Universal host controller
idem: Intel PRO/1000 PL Network connection
Peripheral: Synaptic PS/2 Port Touchpad


// Laptop: HP DV9000t

My main concernis that i am not sure which things i have to check when installing.

*specifically for my gfx card and wireless card.

* Oh, and i am installing this with my dual boot Vista & linux, this shouldn't be a problem since i already set 26gb as a primary partition for osx right? (loading via GRUB)
Thanks in advance!

Am I impatient or what?

mac.nub,

Sounds super - looking forward to your release. I was wondering why you don't use the Realtek driver from their website for the RTL8111B/RTL8168B/RTL8111/RTL8168/RTL8111C.

Thanks,
SMF

I got a sony vaio with the same gfx card and I got a lot of problems: it's recognized only with nvidia inject and there is no QE or CI and no resolution change. Am I alone? should I trash the laptop? ;)

There is no support for 3945 yet, in the first post there i a list of supported network adapters no Intel ones if you really read it.Bluetooth support is standard on Mac OS X, it depends more on your device since there are no options or third party drivers, but the majority of devices works, I have arround 6 diferent USB bluetooth dongles and they all work.I read that the integrated Bluetooth of the Dell XPS 1210 does not work. So tell us which one do you have and maybe we can tell if it would work.

Any support for the rt2500usb chipset in Linksys USB Wireless Adapter?

Also, does Titan (or Natit?) fully support both VGA heads on the AGP nVidia GeForce FX5500?

Found the driver here http://diabolik1605....W/7600Go.v2.zip

NOT TRUE! (well kinda... :D )

found this http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/ the 3945 is "experimental" // Haven't tried it yet...so can't say


**NOTE, i do not know the policy of osx86, i'm asuming that posting these links is allowed, but torrent links aren't

Only one thing wanna ask about this version, which is it working for P35 with Intel ICH9R ???

Actually, successfully installed JaS 10.4.8 x86 DVD, but unfortunatellly Sound ,and Internet doesn't work at all...

don't know how to deal with the issues...

also, one suggestion for this version of DVD: Could you guys can make the installation option as simple as pissible ?

due to current x86 dvd we've got, the installation options so confused me... so that, in order to guess a right option for my pc , i had to continue to install it even several times....for guessing the suitable drivers....

however, hope this one works with P35 board and ICH9R ....anyway...

^^

So what about sound MAX support? :D (p.s. why the iso weights 1.8Gb? other iso's weights ~4Gb? And why on one of your screenshots VRAM (Total) = 256?, GTS card has 640mb)

So is this release English only? Any chance you can create a version with German language as well? I guess, from the filesize, you left out quite a bit of stuff...

Hi,
please upload it on rapidshare when you release it, too.
It's much easier to downlaod and it will spread faster then.

Greetings and nice work

PharohSD - Leave as standard, and also select: NVinjectGo (for graphics), Conextant HDA, PowerManagement.bundle

It's not even worth bothering trying to try the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG available on google code. Because it still doesn't even work, and even if they got it to work, there would still be no encryption options... bin it and get a Broadcom Based one off ebay... oh, and grub should be fine.

macgirl - Here's a countdown timer especially for you - http://www.macdotnub.../countdown.html ;)

SMF - If you had ever tried downloading drivers from their website, you wouldn't be saying that! Joking aside, I have no idea if those drivers will actually work on Hackintosh's, plus I didn't even realise they were available - just use the ones on the DVD, they actually work.

cloverbay - As I said to PharohSD, get rid of the Intel wireless card, they are not supported, nor will they ever have encryption options.

Hara Taiki - Yes there is support for your wireless adapter - Simply select the Ralink USB Wireless option. As for your second question, no idea. Have a look at the Titan or Natit posts on the forums to find out.

zhimama - It *is* as simple as it can be already. You have to have a basic level of knowledge about the internal parts of your PC to select the correct drivers/install options. It should support most P35 and ICH9 Motherboards, but I can't promise it will support every system. As it's simply not possible to provide for every single possible computer build.

Orfeus - If you provide me with an actual codec type/card name, I may be able to answer that question, saying does it have sound MAX support is no where near informative enough for me to give you an answer. The ISO is only ~1.8GB because it only includes English Language files, and does not include XCode. And actually my GTS has 320MB VRAM, the reason it showed 256 was because of an old System Profiler patch. You can simply replace one folder to get it to show the correct value.

chuuey - Thanks.

fryke - Yes, it is English only. I am not planning on releasing a multi-lingual version, and no, I haven't left out "quite a bit of stuff" all I did was remove the multi-language files, XCode Tools, and the iLife 08 Suite from the 10.4.10 iMac install DVDs, all of which are un-needed and you can find elsewhere. If you want German language support, get the German language file off a DVD that includes it e.g. Uphuck 10.4.9 v1.3 after install.

sofaritze - I'll do my best.

Are there any changes in this install to better support laptop keyboards? Dells do not seem to have problems with keyboard support but many LG, Gateway and some HPs have problems. I could point you to a few threads that provide work arounds, but the search is down :rolleyes:

I also want to thank you for the way to presented yourself and your project. Good luck!

If I may, as well, ask a question. Is the Marvell Alaska 88E1116 supported with the other Marvell ethernet drivers? This is the onboard nic of the P5N-E sli. It seems all my other components I know will be covered. Just curious if the nic will be my limiting factor!

Thanks,
Keck

rootnik - Interesting, I'd never seen this issue before. However after looking for it the problem seems to lie within the PS/2 driver and that a hacked one is available that should fix this... this wasn't built into the DVD, now does the problem usually present it's self during or after installation? If after I can just add a downloadable installer to my website that fixes this, if during installation... that may cause a problem I don't know. It's probably worthwhile trying it, and if it doesn't work, I may be able to release a PPF to apply to the DVD for people that have problems with it.

keckmatd - Interesting question. To be honest i'm not sure. I searched for drivers etc. for this, but didn't come up with anything specifically for that card. Personally I'd be tempted to try the Marvell Driver and see what happens.
