The whole point of getting OSX86 running was so I could download the iPhone SDK and play around with that. When the install was finished, I got a new alert I've never seen...it put a transparent black overlay on the screen, with a power button in the background, and said to restart my machine by holding down the power button. Funny thing is, it repeated this message in various languages.

I figured it was just Mac's way of saying to restart after an intense install. So I restarted...now everytime it boots up, I get the same screen. So now I'm guessing something seriously bad happened. I have a feeling it's related to gcc, but it's just a guess.

Is there some kind of known issue, or a patch already that can fix this?

If anyone else has this issue...just uncheck the second option in the installer, which are the CHUD tools...this breaks your install.

That's funny. What's the CHUD stuff do anyway?

From what I can tell, some sort of hardware prober. Which is why I'm guessing OSX crashes.

CHUD Tools are:

The Computer Hardware Understanding Developer Tools (CHUD Tools) are designed to help hardware and software developers measure and optimize the performance of Macintosh systems. They require Mac OS X 10.4 or later.


Normally CHUD tools would not break your OSx86 install, it might have something to do with the fact that you are using AMD. The black overlay screen you get is called a kernel panic.

Cool, thanks for the info. Now I know what a kernel panic is, too. Luckily the SDK doesn't require it...I've already been working on my first app for the past couple hours, getting used to the code. It's very interesting, I'm starting to get a hang of it.

I encountered the same problem, how did you fix the kernel panic? Is there an easy way or did you have to do a reinstall? I'm a complete beginner to all this so any tips or advice would be welcome.

OK in that case I think that I will not install CHUD either, because it seems that several are having the same problem.

Because it's insanely easy for me to reinstall, I did just that. I assumed my install was done for. Plus I had screwed things up from the night before with trying to fix the boot loading stuff, so I figured good riddance anyways.

Ok no problem, I did a reinstall too, then installed the tools (again) without chud selected and it's working well so far! So glad I'm not the only one working with osx86 just for the iPhone sdk :(

I don't have an AMD but SDK killed my install.

I will try your solution the evening. With my GA G33M DS2R

For those that are getting the panics, what type of CPU are you using? In another thread, some people are having success, but it may be that they have the Core 2 Duo processors.

P.S. Those of you that haven't, why don't you take a minute to put your hardware specs in your signature? It makes it easier for other to help diagnose problems or see what may be causing the problem if they know what you have.

Hi SkinRock, I have the same problem with CHUD so I reinstalled without CHUD and now works fine, but when I run any app in the simulator I get a blank icon and the app do nothing.
Im working with a AMD X2 4000, 2 Gb, MSI K9N NEO V3, GeForce8600GT256 and Zephyroth 10.5.2 rev1. The OSX works perfect!.
Any ideas???

Im just curious how people were able to install the SDK. When I run the package the iphone SDK is grayed out. A message appears saying that the SDK can only be installed on 10.5 with Intel processors. The funning thing is, is that I'm running 10.5.2 on a Intel Centrino duo processor.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It says explicitly that CHUD tools requires 10.5.4, so maybe that's your problem?

Well, Centrino is a chipset. Are you using a Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, Pentium M?

Sorry my bad, it's an Intel Core Duo T3200. I seems I've just read in other area's that the SDK will run on 10.5.3.
