#2085766 SLI on hackintosh?

Posted by theconnactic on 16 November 2014 - 01:36 AM

FCPX (10.1 and newer) will use two AMD cards in a way that's quite reminiscent of CrossFire on a MacPro - don't now if that's also true for a Hackintosh. Unfortunately, that's the only know example of such a function on OS X, and I suppose it's more third party developer's fault than Apple's, since Apple's FCPX can use it's particular form of CrossFire. Theoretically, OS X could support both CrossFire and SLI, since it supports out of the box using as many GPUs as your computer can handle, but they work as individual cards - i.e.: if you have two GTX 970 cards, you can plug one or more monitors to each card and boot OS X normally with this setup (without need to use a SLI cable), but the apps will only use the GPU that's connected to the monitor where their main windows are open, as far as I know. If you're asking if OS X would boot with a SLI cable connected, well... I'm not sure it would, but if it's the case, simply disconnect the cable when booting to OS X, and keeping it connec...

Way to go, Duran! The App Store kernel bug is solved by your files... However, Safari still refuses to load iCloud.com. I'll try tomorrow again after applying the usual fixes I didn't bother to do today (repair permissions etc) and report results here. All the best

#2084281 [AMD] Yosemite Kernel Testing (for help use the Help Topic)

Interesting. Does it (or do they, but Safari seems to be working here, since I access Netflix from it here) crash with FX CPUs? That's the question we all must have answered from testers at the moment. If the bug is restricted to old CPUs, it's not only kernel related, but opemu related as well. All the best!

Good luck! Further testing (will update this post as soon as I finish each test): HD5450 - works with glitches (artifacts);HDMI audio - fully works;Realtek 8111 - fully works with Mieze's driver;Realtek 8139 (onboard) - not tested, used to work with specific drivers from Mieze;Optiarc DVD player and recorder - not tested;Migration Assistant - fully works;Reboot and shutdown: works fully, shutdown time is instantaneous, boot time a little longer than I'd like but it's ok;Sleep and wake - not tested, used to work fine with Mavericks w/o extra kexts, so I expect it to work;MPlayer X - not tested;Netflix (and thus, Safari and MS Silverlight) - not tested; All the best!

Finally had time to do some testing. Severe graphics glitches, in fact even before enabling QE/CI for my HD5450. Reminds me of early ML development for AMD. All in all, If you use an old AMD CPU (pre-Bulldozer) and want to use OS X to do something other than kernel experiments, I recommend waiting for an updated kernel or staying with Mavericks. To all: this is the kernel testing topic. It's meant only to report if and how the released kernels work on our machines. I started to delete without previous notice anything not related to it: posts asking or giving help with installation and post installation issues, benchmarks, casual chatting etc. Count on you guys and gals for keeping this topic clean. Hi guys, do these kernels require SSSE3-capable CPUs or can SSE3-capable CPU load the kernels too? It works with non-ssse3 CPUs. With serious graphics glitches, but it does work.

For me, I get a very early ACPI kernel panic, even before the kext summary, with Bronya's kernel and Chameleon. Will play with the boot flags and then try Clover. Old CPU here. All the best!

My kernel isn't working yet: that's because I mostly adapted an older diff from Bronzovka so it patches successfully the 10.10 open source XNU kernel. I would be a long shot for it to simply work as is, without a thorough research on how it should work on our machines. I bet Bronzovka will have a working solution way faster than I can possibly do, due to his superior skills and my lack of spare time... All the best!

I must have commented out something important ! :) Back to the drawing board!

Thank you for reporting! :) Tested on FX or K10/older?

#2079365 [AMD] Yosemite Kernel Release (for help use the Help Topic)

Posted by theconnactic on 01 November 2014 - 02:45 AM

Meanwhile, try this:  kernel.zip 4.12MB 103 downloads Based on Bronzovka's kernel 10.9.2 diff - don't remember exactly with version, since I rename it a long time ago. I comment out some lines, and also added the tsp.c from Almir's repository for Bronzovka's kernel, and also added a Driver folder inside iokit to accommodate some files that were rejected when I applied the patch. Also removed platforms.h. All in all, I really don't expect it to work, but test it anyway. Diff coming soon. P.S.: Yosemite boots with kernel cache instead of mach_kernel. So you must replace the stock kernel with the one I posted, and rebuild the kernel cache. Good luck!

I tried to build a kernel using a blend of diffs from previous successful kernels, but my command line tools are simply not behaving: in fact, it outputs the kind of errors it would if there were no CLT installed, despite I having Xcode 6 and having installed the tools from the terminal. Strange. The sum is, I cannot help you folks right now. Good luck!

#2072167 FileNVRAM 1.1.3 Released

Posted by theconnactic on 19 October 2014 - 09:53 PM

That's undoubtedly great news! More so that meklort and cosmo1t actively support OSX86, than the fact Chameleon users will be able to use OS X to full extent.

Posted by theconnactic on 18 October 2014 - 02:43 AM

I'll update directly to 10.10.1 when it's out. That is, thus, my advice.
