  1. I hope this fix works for other people. I can't take credit, I got the hint from here dmtien here - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...106883&st=0 I'm running iPC 10.5.6, I've been banging away at this ALL day, an actually had been pounding on it since 10.4.6 to be honest. Anyway this is what I did. I did a clean install (I really don't think the distro you use matters) including AGPGart and no other video drivers. This gave me a plain system, 1024x728 showing an unknown AGP video card. I went into Desktop and Screen Saver and set a hot corner for "sleep display" Installed the ATI Auto version of Natit located here - http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?act...ost&id=5877 Rebooted, got the blue screen and pointer. I put the mouse into the sleep display hot corner, waited a second as the display went to sleep. Moved the mouse back out, and whamo there was the desktop, with full res/QE/CI support Hope it works for you as well! Thanks to dmtien for the hint Also, seems like if you switch res's you need to put the monitor back into sleep mode.
  2. OMG setting a hot corner for sleep display fixed it for me! WOO HOO!!
  3. ATI Radeon X1300 Pro & Kalyway 10.5.2 HELP ME!

    This is extremely frustrating... I can't get past the blue screen either... Ugh hopefully someone figures it out!
  4. Nevermind finally found someone's post who had the same problem and says to install seatbelt.kext from 10.5.5 should be easy to do... hopefully that's it...
  5. I've been trying to get iLife 09 and iWork 09 installed, but since they both require 10.5.6 I've had to resort to trying to install iPC 10.5.6 on my system. My system is rock solid stable using 10.5.4 iDeneb v1 I can get 10.5.6 installed using iPC 10.5.6 final but then when I try to mount a .dmg file, I get a kernel panic. Anyone else run into this problem before? More importantly how do you fix it?
  6. USB 2.0 for Leopard 10.5.7

    Well... I fixed my problem. USB 2.0 works now but I had to revert to an old 8.x kernel driver which I'm not happy about. But at least now 2.0 speeds work. Unfortunately it breaks rebooting. I can still shutdown ok though. Which is fine, that's how it used to be before. Maybe the next version of the driver will fix it all
  7. USB 2.0 for Leopard 10.5.7

    I'm about to give up... I'm running iDeneb v1 - 10.5.4 and everything runs flawlessly except for USB2.0 Don't get me wrong, ALL of my USB devices function properly but not at 2.0 speeds even with the generic USB driver. I've tried all the fixes from Slice, dmdimoff and the older 0rbyte ones. They all work, but exactly the same way. I had a very similar problem when I was running Tiger 10.4.6 and the generic driver fixed it. Now with Leopard I can't seem to get it to work in high speed mode. It's not critical as everything does work, but trying to copy over picts from my camera's flash card is annoying slow... Slice, can you help me out? Let me know what info you need from me! My motherboard is an nForce4/pro based.
  8. Driver for nForce4 LAN

    I just reinstalled OS X onto my home computer this weekend. I had been running 10.4.9 a while back before I blew it away (thought there was a problem when there wasn't oh well) When I loaded up iDeneb 10.5.4 I had a problem with network connectivity where anytime I'd download a large file, or pushed high speeds I would get either a deadlock or a KP. Actually took me a second to realize what the problem was because I never had a problem with the forcedeth drivers on Tiger but did have problems with SATA etc. LOL Anyway, to make a long story short I tried three different drivers last night (and was prepared to install an Intel PRO 1000 GT if none of them worked) and the one found here http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...;p=884640 was the one that worked for me. (It's in one of the middle posts, a file on rapidshare called "FIle.zip") It's interesting because it seems like a driver that might work for one person may not work for another. Anyway, this was the one that worked for me. Good luck guys.
  9. I tried three different drivers last night and this was the one that worked. Thanks a million!
  10. Adobe CS3 Hackintosh fix

    Also bear in mind, so far from what others have been able to figure out, replacing AppleSMBIOS.kext only appears to work for Intel machines, it doesn't appear to fix the crashes for AMD
  11. Mouse Problem!

    You uninstall SteerMouse from the help menu in SteerMouse As for why it's still jumpy, did you remember to uninstall LCC?
  12. finder crashes ...

    Do you have stuffit deluxe 11.0.2 installed?
  13. 2007022 photoshop cs3 patch will not apply

    Are you remembering to rename the Adobe folder in Library/Application Support to something else like Adobe Temp? If not, and you applied the patch and it failed, you should try renaming that folder and reapplying the patch. It may not work still, in which case try reinstalling Photoshop.
  14. finder crashes ...

    Is it crashing when you right click? (try right clicking SEVERAL times)
  15. Mouse Problem!

    FYI - I uninstalled SteerMouse and installed USB Overdrive instead. SteerMouse started throwing errors left and right about being unable to load forcing me to manually load it. Both work for my G5 mouse.
