Installing 10.4.10 Kalyway on AMD SSE2

15 August 2008 - 10:23 PM

First I would to say that I tried MANY times to install Leopard here, from various releases (Kalyway, Leo4All, JAS) with patches, fixes and etc, with no luck.

I was running JAS 10.4.8 here, but I decided to upgrade, installing another release instead of updating my current one.
I downloaded Kalyway 10.4.10 for AMD (SSE2) and installed it, but when booting up I'm getting endless "launchd com.apple.* ... .. segmentation fault ... after 4 tries without 60 seconds of living ... job removal" with every possible item (loginwindow, eventagent, etc..) and then it hangs.

Does anyone had success installing this release on an AMD SSE2 system ?
I got some know-how but I'm not an expert.

Any hints ?
Please, I really appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance. :wacko:

7600GS 512 AGP on Tiger 10.4.8, does it work ?

08 August 2008 - 06:25 PM

Please, it's driving me mad!
I want to know if it's possible to have a GeForce 7600GS 512mb AGP working on a OSX Tiger 10.4.8 (JAS).
I've been trying it for months, and I got every kind of messages, errors, warnings, etc..

There was a time I could load OSX, after installing it with Titan for NV40, I heard the intro music but the screen was black.

But now, I just want to know, IS IT POSSIBLE ?

GeForce4 MX440 (no 10.4.8)

29 May 2008 - 05:35 PM

caras alguem tem experiencia com placas velhas da NVIDIA como a geforce4 ?
eu to tentando faz quase uma semana, obtive todo tipo de mensagem de erro, diversos problemas mas tambem tive um progresso.

primeiramente eu instalei o JaS 10.4.8, e pra inicar o OS eu tive que retirar os kexts de video da nvidia (NVDANV**Hal e NVDAResman) da pasta de extensoes, caso contrario eu recebia a mensgem "NVDA::start (display) <1> failed" e kernel panic.

tentei Titan, Natit e NVinject e nada...
fazendo alteracoes nos kexts NVDA, mais precisamente arrumando meu device+vendor id nos plists eu consegui parar com o "NVDA:start (display) <1> failed" porem continuava com kernel panic.

ja tentei com e sem os GeForce.*, com e sem o AGPgart.kext, e ja fiz todos tipos de combinacoes possiveis com natit, titan e nvinject e NADA!

caras, eu sei que CI e Quartz eu nao conseguirei, eu so quero aumentar minha resolucao que fica em 800x600, ja tentei colocar flag no boot (GraphicsMode), ja tentei alterar o arquivo de boot "com.apple.Boot.plist", ja tentei usar o DisplayConfigX e o SwitchResX e NADA!

eu so quero colocar em 1280x1024!!!! alguem ai tem ideias ?
por favor, to cansado de tentar e eu queria MUITO usar macos pra trabalhar xD

GeForce4MX and my journey through the valley of oldies.

27 May 2008 - 10:07 PM

Yestersay I just didn't know absolutely nothing about UNIX, MacOSX, kexts and etc. but today I think I'm almost done with getting my GeForce4MX440 working with Tiger (10.4.8).

I'm newbie, so all I had to do is research, read, and try. Try, try, try many different ways until I get what I want.

Titan and Natit I wasn't able to load.
I'm making some progress with NVDA but still hanging before OSX startup.
After OS installation it was hanging on 'windowlogin starting', so I had to remove NVDA kexts from Extensions directory to boot.

Every time I tried to boot with NVDA kexts it displayed 'NVDA start: display (1) failed' message. After some alterations in 'Info.plist' of 'NVDNV20Hal.kext' and 'NVDAResman.kext' I managed to load successfully both kexts, but still couldn't boot. Now it hangs with 'launchd' and 'os/kernel failure' messages. :(

Could NVCAP insertion solve my problem ?
Could it be the monitor, I mean, some specific kext should be loaded for my SyncMaster CRT ?
Any ideas ?

Sorry for my bad english, and I really appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.
Best regards.
