  1. Updating from 10.7.2 to 10.7.4 or 10.7.5

    I updated to 10.7.3 (combo) earlier and for a minute Wifi didn't work then I found a shell script which rebuilds caches. I ran that and wifi started working again. Then I updated to 10.7.4 (client) Wifi stopped again but running the script solved the problem. Now I have 10.7.4 with wifi. I'm going to try installing 10.7.5 and run the script afterwards even though 10.7.4 is enough for what I need. I'm going to upload the script shortly. Thanks fantomas1 EDIT: attached the shell script that rebuilds the caches loading only 64bit kexts caches_rebuild.sh.zip
  2. 64bit Lion kexts don't work on ML

    I checked Lion today and it is 64bit, what can I do?
  3. 64bit Lion kexts don't work on ML

    @eep357 I read on forums that if you checked that the kexts were 64bit it would work, I didn't think of the dependencies. I'll check the architecture Lion is running in, but I'm pretty sure it's 64bit. The kexts I found and attached to the original post were selected having in mind device id and vendor id, but I guess I have to look again for ML kexts matching those ids. (your computer seems awesome) @bugpoppa206 I don't use a DSDT on my pc because I haven't understood how to do it properly. And I haven't had the necessity until 10.8.2 came out. I've always tried finding kexts because it seems easier to me. @Lord Kamina I don't use kernel cache, but I'm not sure. How do I check it and how do I specify to use only 64bit version of the kexts? Thank you all for the replies. I had given up due to my limited free time to work on the computer and being my only one I couldn't waste to much time.
  4. Updating from 10.7.2 to 10.7.4 or 10.7.5

    Thanks for the reply I tried installing 10.7.3 and then 10.7.4, but in both cases I used the combo packages. Everything worked on version 10.7.3. Things stop working after that. I'll try updating it with non combo packages as you suggest. maybe it works this way. It is a lot of time consuming if it doesn't work because I would have to install everything from scratch, but I have no other option. Thanks Andy
  5. Hi, I have a working hackintosh with Lion installed on it, version 10.7.2 My computer's specs are intel i3 2310 cpu nvidia 315m 4GB ram BT which doesn't work card reader works OOB Atheros AR5007 (i think, but it's not a problem cause I have the kext for it) I start having problems when I update the system to version 10.7.4 or 10.7.5. When I update Mac OSX, the kext for wireless isn't loaded anymore. So wireless connection stops working. This is strange because I had 10.7.4 previously and wifi worked. Then I had to install lion from scratch and it is not working if I update it to 10.7.4. I also am able to install 10.8 but in that case, the graphics card is not recognised along with the wifi. And in the case of 10.8 the IO80211 kext is loaded but doesn't work. All kexts I use are 64bit. Can anyone help me with this, because I have installed Lion more than 10 times and updated it to try and make it work. Thanks
  6. Hi, The situation: I installed Mac Lion 10.7 and have the following things working using kexts CPU all cores using VoodooTSCSync (thanks to members of this forum) Audio using VoodooHDA 2.7.2 Graphics, I think the graphics kext is NVClockX or GeForce or NVDAResman - With QE/CI PS2 VoodooPS2... (not needed if I turn USB Legacy to off from BIOS) WiFI IO80211 IONetworkingFamily (AirPortAtheros40.kext) Everything works nice (except battery, brightness, bluetooth and ethernet which I can live without) I read around on how to install 10.8 and I read that 64bit drivers would work fine on it. Well, I checked my drivers and they were all 64bit. So next I prepared an installation USB from the ML bought from app store and after a few tries I managed to install Mountain Lion and launch it without any kernel panics. I tried to install the kexts I use for my Lion partition. Few of them worked (PS2, TSCSync) Many didn't work (Graphics, WiFi, Audio) This also happened when I updated to 10.7.5 from 10.7.4 (fortunately Time Machine works very good in these cases) My question is: What are the requirements for the kexts to work? Is being 64bit enough? Am I doing something wrong? Any help is appreciated. Thanks PS: here is a screenshot of 10.7.2 in action I've attached the kexts I use if anyone else has my hardware or the same model laptop Toshiba Satellite C660-1MG i3 2310m, GeForce 315m 1GB, 4GB DDR3 1333MHz, Toshiba Audio Will update for the correct WiFi card, BT card (both Atheros), Lan (Realtek), working.zip
  7. CPUS=1 Intel i3 2310m

    Thank's! I'll check it out as soon as possible and then I will comment my results. EDIT: Your solution(s) worked. Thanks, I don't know why I didn't ask earlier. I've used Lion for a year with only one core.
  8. CPUS=1 Intel i3 2310m

    Hi everyone, I have this laptop: Toshiba Satellite C660-1MG specs: Intel core i3 2310m Works using 1 core 4GB 1333MHZ DDR3 Ram Works! NVidia GeForce 315m Works! I guess because of Graphics Enabler = Yes. It isn't detected (Graphics Unknown nVidia card 1024 MB) but that's not important as long as it works. Atheros AR9007 (Not Sure) Works! With kexts found on kexts.com Realtek RTL8136 (Not sure if 8136 or 8196) Does not work! But I got Wi-Fi so this is not important for me. Not sure about my Audio Card Works! Using VoodooHDA I think it's version 2.7 Card Reader Works! USBs Work! Lion 10.7.4 (updating to 10.7.5) (Tried Mountain Lion but the kexts that work on Lion didn't work there so I'm sticking with Lion for a little bit) My Problem: My cpu has 2 cores and 4 logic cores. When I boot without the "cpus=1" flag, OSX starts and loads, everything works. The only problem is that is stops every second. It doesn't restart. Just stops for like 200ms or so and starts again. I don't know how to explain this another way. It becomes extremely slow. When I add the "cpus=1" flag, it works and it doesn't have this continuous stopping. I don't use a DSDT file, but when I installed ML I tried a modified DSDT that I found in the Internet and then it started working normally with all four cores. You would think that I solved the problem but that's not true because that DSDT didn't work on Lion. I checked the original DSDT (the one that is loaded by the system when no custom DSDT is provided) and it doesn't have Alias entries under _PR (cpu). And that is the oddest part. The system never panics, neither with the "cpus=1" flag nor without it. Does anyone have any idea why this happens? If I wasn't clear enough just ask. Thanks. Maybe it's more than 200ms now that I'm thinking about it because 200ms wouldn't be noticeable.
