Yes... As you'd expect; when you shutdown you basically only have standby current going to the network interface, if it gets the right frame it will wake. It'd do so even if you had completely empty hard drives. Once OSX tries to power manage a BIOS mobo - things get tricky.....


hey consolation

ok I went through and I got it all working (yay), and even tested some surround sound AC3 files with VLC, which worked great. however, when I tried to use iTunes to play music, only the front left, front right, and sub played. Is there any way to tell OS X to send those same signals to the other 3 speakers?

I googled, and found many mentions of the problem, but all were on windows. Many talked about sound card options (which doesn't apply to me), or foobar2000 (windows only).

Did you find any solutions that allowed you to use itunes with your 5.1 setup where you got all speakers working?

Yes.... but you might not like my solution. My speaker system has a controller that sits on the desk, it has a headphone socket, plus controls for the amp; one of the buttons lets you switch between stereo and 5.1. I use that, sorry.

P.S. couple of points I forgot to mention. In the Aggregate device editor you can drag the sound outs up and down, this means that, for example, you can have FL&FR on streams 1&2 -I do not know if it has any impact beyond aesthetics. Make sure all channels are set to same bit & sample rates. You can make ad-hoc multichannel using a couple of $5 USB sound dongles, make sure you have the clock set to build-in audio to avoid channels going out of sync. Oh, you can rename your device by clicking on it.

The most powerful function of this tool is the ability to create an aggregate INPUT device. (e.g. join up line-in and mic-in and you have a 4 channel multi track recorder) You can then select your new aggregate device as a sound source in Logic or GarageBand. (Works w/ protools & Cubase too). Want to add more channels - you are only limited by the number of your firewire and USB ports. (Well.... I made a monster 24 channel beast on my old powerbook; recording 24 tracks chocked the laptop HD promptly (or the CPU, it was a 550MHz G4).

This has to be one of the least documented, most powerful tools that we inherited from CoreAudio - why does Apple keep so quiet about it always puzzled me. The interface looks like it came out of an undergrad Java 101 assignment, it's almost as if a programmer left it there as an after thought.

P.P.S

Oh, and the device for logic has to have at least one out... At least it used to have to.

As I mentioned a month or so and several pages ago, I've been holding off on finalizing my install until 10.5.2 was released (due to my 8800 GT). Does anyone have an 8800 GT and this board and can confirm it working with 10.5.2?

Works just fine, the only kexts I had to replace were the two audio related ones and my wireless'.

I just kernel panicked trying to update, my iAtkos install, it won't reboot without kernel panicking. I guess I'll try a full reinstall and immediately 10.5.2 it before anything else.

No idea why I said iAtkos, I used Kalyway which included EFI and vanilla kernel, wouldn't have updated otherwise. I'll give -v a try tomorrow morning but in the meantime I really gotta catch some sleep before class in the morning. My CS professor is a nice guy and owns a Macbook Pro, but "I missed class because I was fixing my OSx86 install" won't fly haha.

I used the Brazilmac 10.5.0 disc to install this one. When I updated to 10.5.1, the screen resolution was a little screwed, but this topic fixed it (I had to replace some kext files in the System folder). Anyone have any expierences with gma950 and 10.5.2?

Just to add to the list..

GA P35-DS3P with initial Brazilmac install, updated to 10.5.1

Updated to 10.5.2 using the Kalyway Combo Update
Followed by the 10.5.2 Kalyway Kernel Update (Vanilla Install)
Had absolutely no issues with graphics update, however, my card is an XFX 7600 GT which worked out of the box without any additional kexts on my initial install.

Huge increase of speed, especially in just the OS Navigation alone.

Not a single issue whatsoever.

I think you'll find that you ARE using one of the injectors; which is not a kext that comes with your stock mac box....

Which video card are you using, you list two?

P.S. That's quite a signature you have there, about 3X as long as your post. Maybe a bit less white space would save us developing RSI every time we need to scroll past...

retail dvd. Its closer to the real thing, plus you learn more in the process.

If you install efi, then you can update to 10.5.1 using software update.

To update to 10.5.2, don't use software update. go here:

http://netkas.org/?p=50

Can you use "installer" from command line to install 10.5.2, or is there a fatal flaw somewhere? Cause I tried last night and it froze.

But I will try again...

I installed 10.5.2 Using Netkas method. My previous box was setup with the Socal's guide. All I had to replace were the Audio Kexts using Kext Injector :)

At install I used teh ToH DVD.

After updating to 10.5.2:

Well "About this mac" is incorrectly reporting cpu speed. so I will have to figure that out.

System Profiler is fine on everything except Memory. However, I also have the RAM limited, so...

I'm thinking maybe I should replace AppleSMBIOS.kext, but I'm not sure what it does. time to google...

When I updated to 10.5.2, I did not use the netkas method, and it crashed. From then on, my install was unbootable. To get it to work, I installed leopard (using my own guide of course) to a spare partition, and from there, I used pacifist to install the update to my normal install. Now it works. :wacko:

ok I downloaded a new AppleSMBIOS.kext, fixed to correctly display this info, from netkas.org. 10.5.2 compatible. I haven't tested it yet because I am currently backing up 96GB using time machine
