#2148572 Mavericks kernel testing on AMD (formerly Mountain Lion kernel testing on AMD)

Posted by theconnactic on 27 June 2015 - 04:17 AM

Going to try the newest CC on my AMD rig (10.9.5, latest Bronzovka's) this week. Will report the results here. Wish me luck!

#2143696 OS X El Capitan Test Thread

Posted by theconnactic on 10 June 2015 - 09:27 PM

In my Z97 hack (see my sig) it installs just fine, with my Clover EFI folder plus the argument rootless=0. It also runs "fine": meaning that I have no issue specific to my hardware, but the system is still intrinsically very glitchy (e.g.: sound need a kext rollback) and underdeveloped (look at the awful, hideous Disk Utility), more than any past DP version I tested up to now. All in al, it's not yet worthy to have it installed, so I erased the partition I used for it, and I'll wait for the public seed to have a real sneak peak of El Capitan. All the best!

With the HD4600, use DVI or HDMI, DSub is a no-go. What brand is your Nvidia Geforce 210 ? I use DVI for the HD4600, and D-Sub for either the G210 (Point Of View) or the 9800GT (EVGA). I should say none of the nVidias are new: I use them successfully, either with or without the IntelHD, since Mountain Lion (I had a flawlessly working H77-DS3H + I5-3570K but it broke, so I upgraded :P). a mix of Madona with Justin Bieber not a good idea  :D  :hysterical: Wow! Very helpful, man! Thank you very much! I would recommend against using any RD files. I also couldn't drop oem ssdt in clover without getting waiting for root. Thankfully i had Pene to help me figure out my config when I used clover. Before clover booted for me I was able to boot with chameleon and grabbed the dsdt from there. I would try without any patches or drops to dsdt/ssdt and removing any oem DSDT.aml you have now in ACPI folder. Set injectIntel to true and let clover do auto patching until you can get to deskt...

#2138757 HELP TOPIC - further help in chat.osx86.hu/#legacykernel (IRC)

Just use the kernel flag: I think the lack of it was causing the graphics issue (due to binary encryption). Good luck!

Posted by theconnactic on 26 May 2015 - 03:02 AM

so I tried Bronya's RC7 and Tori's Rev8 kernels with the following kexts:AppleACPIIOPCIFamilyIOUSBFamilyIOUSBMassStoragepthreadI need the 1st four otherwise, I'll get kernel panic. And even though pthread is from Tori's kernel, I get kernel panic without it on Bronya kernel. I'm also using the latest chameleon (2686) and using the boot file included with the pkg and a test boot from the chameleon dev thread. and my setup is stuck (please see screenshot). any ideas on how to fix?  This is GPU related. Try to add or disable GraphicsInjection, or add your GPU in your DSDT. Good luck! P.S.: Did you remember to boot with the flag kext_dev_mode=1? It's mandatory since Yosemite.

Yes! The extra kexts are for fine tuning: a proper kernel is all that you need!

FakeSMC and a proper kernel for your hardware, with appropriate Clover settings... I'd start the most vanilla possible, using an easier system version to set up (that is, Mavericks 10.9.5: you'll have to find a kernel for it, there are plenty of working alternatives). When it finally boots, try to get near-full functionality, and only then make the move to bleeding edge (that is, any 10.10.x, you will want to use one of the kernels Duran just linked above). Be sure to take a look at www.rampagedev.com, perhaps you'll find a proper DMG for your HW there. Good luck!

A lot of posts hidden and marked for deletion. The AMD dev forums have simply the best info-to-noise ratio of all Insanelymac. Let's keep it that way. All the best!

Can you port the fix to Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks? It seems that we finally have a fully functional SSSE3 emulator. All the best!

Folks, I'm impressed. When Mavericks finally went open source, it took a really long time to make it useable, and we should remember Mavericks was, in many aspects, incremental an update to Mountain Lion, while Yosemite had a lot of code rewritten from the roots. Luckily to us, Apple released the open source code in a period of weeks from the App Store release of 10.10, but we're even luckier to have quite a few skilled developers so committed to get everything running like it should, even for nine SSSE3 CPUs. Nice work, people: hats off to all of you. I'm using AnV's BSA_YOS_R7D from here:             #612             Both the installer and the OS proper work on my Athlon II X2 250, with no perceptible graphics glitches - but before I patched the appropriate AMD kexts for my HD5450, I was getting that hideously distorted multicoloured desktop background shown in AnV's post        ...

Guys, kernel testing only. It's in the title, so there's no excuses. Will simply delete any OT. Thanks.

#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...
