  1. Firefox Mac users please read!

    Installed the just released Flash Plugin and whataya know, it works!! Checked with Firefox and Safari - video and sound. Seems to perhaps a bit smoother. Hope that future updates will work as well. Finally! ps. running an Radeon 5780 on 10.6.6 OSX86. I should really update my Siggy.
  2. @Mysticus, i don't seem to have AppleACPIFamily.kext on any of my partitions, but do have the AppleAPIC.kext. Did you by chance mean a different file? Perhaps AppleACPIPlatform.kext? That is the only kext with AppleACPI* in it on my drive. EDIT: I did a little snooping and the AppleAPIC.kext is seemingly identical on all three partitions while the AppleACPIPlatform.kext (if this file matters) is the same version, 1.0.3, but the sizes and modification dates are different. Also the info.plist lists your install as version 1.2.0 as well as a number of other differences. Could this kext be the issue? I may swap kexts from my Kaly install and see if i can boot... EDIT2: So, i went ahead and swapped the AppleACPIPlatform.kext from the kaly partition ... guess what? I booted just fine! Apparently AppleACPIPlatform.kext was causing the hang, so i assume you meant that kext instead of the Family one. Hope that helps!
  3. @Mysticus Finally got the 1.3 Updater dl'd and just attempted the update on a third, and clean install partition via Kalyway 10.5.1 > Kalyway Combo 10.5.2 > your 10.5.3 Combo selecting only the update and i'm still getting the stall after the MAC framework successfully initializing seen in that same screen. I'm not sure why the Kalyway 10.5.3 Combo with 9.3.1 Vanilla works stable still, and yours does not. Like i said before, i'm not as knowledgable as you on how OSx86 works but if there is anything i can do to help let me know
  4. Ok, i've switched to the proper thread to make it easier for ya Mysticus As i said in the other thread, the 1.0 and 1.1 installer packages both lead to the same "stall" screen using -v switch during boot. I'll post the screen again in case you want to take a look here... In my waiting to dl the 1.2 version (which i'll now stop and wait for 1.3), i decided to try the 10.5.3 Kalyway Combo Update since with two partitions makes things much easier and much faster. I installed with the same options as both your packages, just the Update/fix selections and with and without kernel selections (though your's would auto select 9.3.1 Vanilla if i remember right?). For some reason the Kalyway upate worked both ways without a hitch... I'm not sure what the difference between the installers is since my experience is limited as far as that, but perhaps you can use that info. Perhaps this is because i've gone Kalyway (10.5.1 install, 10.5.1/10.5.2/10.5.3 updates)from the start, there is something "different" in your System updates? I'll give your 1.3 Package again if you'd like but if someone could upload it in another method it would make it much easier -- deciphering those dam kitties in the RS Captcha codes are nearly impossible and the wait b/w 100mb is forever... Seeding a torrent might be the best option since we can all make sure we force everyone to seed in this thread, but just my opinion. Here's the -v "stall" screen again here if you want to look at it:
  5. Finally got around to getting Leopard osx86 and after all sorts of struggle, thank you zuza -- that worked without a hitch!
