Mobility 7500 and QE?

11 June 2007 - 11:31 PM

I did a search but found no definite answer for this. Is there a way to get QE working with a Mobility Radeon 7500? I did all the instructions in the 7500 pack and now apparently have OGL as I can run screensavers, but QE still says Not Supported in profiler. Anyone have a definite answer for this? Any help is appreciated, thanks a lot in advace :D

How to replace kexts?

11 June 2007 - 03:03 PM

Can someone please enlighten me on how to effecitlvely replace kexts in OSx86? I'm not sure how the whole proccess goes and I might be needing to do it a few times until I get something to work. I'd appreciate a guide or something quite comprehensive, I know you need to replace them in terminal using sudo and then chmod/chown them, but I'm not sure of the exact procedure. Thanks in advance :)

Sound problems and what wireless card?

10 April 2007 - 10:19 PM

Hey :).

Well I'm dwelving into the world of OSx86 and I have it all installed and running but need a few opinions/advice.

First off, I have a Dell Dimension 4700. The motherboard is an i915G chipset with an ICH6 southbridge. The sound seems like it should be okay, but I can't really hear anything, thus it isn't working. Anybody have any advice to how to get it working? I know there must be a way but I'm not sure exactly which model it falls under to look through all the info and find a solution.

Other question, for some reason SSE3 isn't listed under my CPU instructions, although I have an SSE3 CPU (Intel Pentium 4 530). Now, is there any way to remedy this ? I think that I MIGHT have not selected the SSE3 patch during the install; I have a JaS 10.4.6 ISO, I'm afraid to upgrade to anything newer and not have compatbility anymore.

Also, here's something else. CAN I upgrade to a newer kernel and not have problems? I'm afraid because it was hell to finally get this install running and I don't want to mess it all up.

Last but not least, I need a wireless adapter. I need something USB and relatively cheap (20-30). Suggestions? I was looking at a Belkin and it just seemed too crappy and no WAP support, so that would kinda be a problem ; don't want to downgrade my wireless network security.

Thanks in advance guys, it's really something great going on here =)

Apple releases Intel Mac OS X kernel

08 August 2006 - 11:56 PM

A lot of speculation has been slowly building this year as to why Apple didn't have the Intel Mac OS X kernel source openly available like it is for the PowerPC version. For those who aren't quite up to speed on all this: Darwin, the kernel software at the center of Mac OS X, is open source. There are a number of reasons this is helpful to individuals and organizations who want or need to customize Mac OS X for one reason or another, but for the most part, this doesn't really concern the typical Mac user like you and me.

However, to those who do customize and specialize the Mac OS X kernel for their specific uses the fact that the Intel version of Mac OS X's kernel hasn't been made available has been a source of discussion within their respective communities. Fortunately, as of yesterday, these kernel-lovin' folk have something more to talk about, as their wishes have finally been answered: a post in one of Apple's developer mailing lists yesterday announced that Apple has indeed finally released the kernel based on the latest version 10.4.7. Not much of an explanation for the holdup is offered, but an apology for the wait is. Either way, this is good news for those concerned about Apple's stance on open source software.


Guessing that means alot for the OSX86 scene? Sorry not really sure where this belongs so I guess it's here, mods feel free to move :)
