Very bad post :thumbsdown_anim:
If I were a mod I'd delete it. Because you prefer the work of one developer you shouldn't call the others "clowns".



When I read his post I took it as he's not calling the current set of devs clowns but more like now anyone can start making and patching kernels. For example now some user has the code and starts posting his kernels without really testing and starts bricking peoples machines. The QA/QC could all but disappear. But i agree bad post for the name calling.

Does this patch work good on Intel Core2Duo systems? It does not emulate SSE3 when not necessary, right?

If I apply this patch on the kernel from Leopard DVD, do I need anything else to make it bootable?

I'm sorry for the dense question but if I understand correctly: When I get my retail copy of Leopard all I have to do is apply this patch and then I'll be able to install it on my hack? or do I have to get a different image for this to work?

k, I patched the kernel as per the included instructions and have the created hacked file.
Now what?
Do I need to inject it into a Leopard DVD DMG, if so, rename it, keep it named what it is, ????
FYI, you gotta edit the Could someone please post addition step by step directions.
I assume this patch/hack is to make a Leopard DVD install on non-Apple hardware.
If indeed it is, and it works, one might think that a tad more instructions might help, unless this is just for the super duper high end guru's, and not for us low end newbies that have crossed the line and become Apple newbies.
By the way, you gotta patch/modify the patcher.sh file to point to the path embedded in the file with user info, etc.
Sure a true hacker cracker might know, but let's share here...k?

I have the same question; Is this really all there is to it :rolleyes:? BrazilMac's method for example is much more involved, but no SSE2 support as yet - It involves its own (cut down in size too I might add) DVD too, not the retail :S.

EDIT: I think one way would be to use the BrazilMac DVD and replace the kernel with this one for SSE2 users, otherwise you could use it by default (Supporting SSE3)

Sup everyone -

I took this as replacing the kernel into the leopard iso that you make after following the Brazil Mac's guide. I am trying it now, and will post later if any progress.

I tried BrazilMac's guide without modifying any kernel, I got it to boot but it reboot the machine after trying to load something and stopped. Hopefully with this hacked kernel it will allow me to go further in the installation process.

Crossing fingers....X

EDIT: OMG, initial progress had shown...basically I am now able to boot into the installer, haven't installed yet because I'm preparing my partition now....but my lappy is a Dell 9300 SSE2, could this be real? Updates later....

I think you need the original Kernel from the leopard retail DVD to patch...BrazilMac's DVD already has a patched kernel I think (SSE3 only) so I'm not sure if the patch would work.

Great! Anyone know when an actual packaged installer/DVD will be out for Intel, AMD, SSE2 & SSE3 cpus available for download (so all you have to do is burn and install?) I read later tonight somewhere, but does anyone know if this is true?

So I've already obtained a copy of Leopard, and I'm currently running Tiger on a partition on my Macintoshiba. I'd really like to upgrade to Leopard, but therein lies the problem. Everyone is installing Leopard on their hackintosh', and I've no doubt I would be able to do so myself, but thus far all the methods I've seen involve setting up yet another partition and installing leopard to it cleanly, rather than simply upgrading Tiger. If I were to patch my install dvd and then run it and attempt to install to the partition Tiger is on, would it upgrade, or would I end up with kernel screwageness?

Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!! :)

I wouldn't risk upgrading Tiger; But you can wipe over your Tiger installation:

If anyone successfully gets it working on an SSE2 CPU please tell me your steps :).

A clean install means facing the pain of backing up my files, re-installing Creative Suite 3, and ~groan~ kexts to get sound and ethernet running... maybe I'll just be patient.. meh. Thanks anywho...

In an unrelated note, I've been kind of curious as to whether or not Leopard came with support for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG... I know its a stretch, but the possiblity was enough to peak my interest since Apple is slowly moving toward support for more hardware and The 3945ABG is pretty standard issue. Anybody know?

I don't see why it would, They only need to support the hardware found in their own products.

If you can replace the kernel with one patched for SSE2 you might be able to use it...at least from what I've heard. IMO we'll see some better DVDs come out with less fuss soon, such as the one from uphuck.
