  1. kernel FireWire GUID ffffffffffffffff is invalid! I get this all over the Console whenever my Hackie wakes up from sleep. 10.6.8, Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P board, i7 2600k, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] install. Apparently it has to do with the Firewire chipset. It's irksome as everything else is working splendidly on this board minus audio. As a result, I'm using a Griffin Firewave hooked up to a receiver for 5.1 surround sound. It works great and sounds great, too, but upon waking from sleep, the Firewave powers up but I get no audio. It's recognized by System Profiler just fine, but apparently it doesn't want to work. Some suggested getting a TI chipset card to fix the problem in earlier threads, but I'm hoping there's a fix of some sort floating around that I might have missed that doesn't involve dropping a Firewire card into this thing.

    10.6.8 officially released

    Just upgraded on my DX58SO, no problems here. I'm using a full DSDT with sleep support, so the only necessary kext I have is FakeSMC along with a few other non-essentials such as VoodooHDA, Realtek driver, and the temp sensor kext. Video is fine on my GTX 285, audio output via my Griffin Firewave is working, as is input from the onboard audio.

    Nvidia announces Quadro 4000 for Mac!

    True, but the GTX 460 is the GF104 chip, and people have had some success with those. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that it happens after more people get a chance to pound on the drivers a bit.

    Nvidia announces Quadro 4000 for Mac!

    It's official! Much in the way that the Quadro 4800 (I believe) enabled GTX 285 support before the Mac 285 landed, the drivers for this card should be able to fully support the GTX 480 (and others, presumably)! I'm also hoping that it can be made to run the GTX 580 as well, which is just a revised 480. What do you guys think? Excited to get real acceleration out of those GTX 400s?

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    The new kext works fine on boot, but I still don't have network when it wakes. Ethernet has no IP at all and the state of the network is unknown in the network settings. Playing around with the settings has no effect.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Heh, yeah, no USB issues now. I just need to figure out why network is dead after waking from sleep. I think there are several kexts that add functionality for this card. Anyone know of other network kexts for the DX58SO? It seems that Intel82566MM.kext might work, but results are mixed and from a year ago. I remember having some problems with various kexts until I tried the RTL1000SL.kext, which did the trick, but now it doesn't seem to like sleeping. Or perhaps I'm doing it wrong and need to make modifications elsewhere. I seem to remember some audio scripts that would unload/reload the audio kexts after sleep...

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    SUCCESS! I did some digging and it looks like Intel finally put out a BIOS update that doesn't break overclocks completely. Updated, reconfigured, and it's running fine. Furthermore, sleep now works! It takes maybe 5-10 seconds to really wake up, but it does wake up! Now I guess we know that older BIOS on this board can be problematic, and that Intel finally got their head out of their ass after about 6 months and several bum BIOS updates. Some wouldn't even work properly at stock speeds. The only thing I'm seeing now is that ethernet does not work after sleep. I'm using a Realtek1000SL.kext for that.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Diffmerge will not open that DSDT, citing a text encoding problem. Some kind of unknown character and none of the text encoding options work. However, I did take a look in the DSDTEditor, and there are significant differences in the CPU options. The one you posted has a lot more in there than mine. I didn't go over the whole thing meticulously, but that appears to be the only significant difference.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    No difference. It's no so much that USB is dead upon wake. I have no video as well. The computer seems to go to sleep properly and looks like it's shut down. Hitting the keyboard brings the fans and LEDs back up, but nothing else. USB devices dead, monitor still on standby. One thing that occurs to me is that I also have a Soundblaster 5.1 card and the kxAudio drivers installed. This was not present when my DSDT was created. I'm wondering if that might be the problem.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    The DSDT I'm using is the one you sent me. I sent it to you after the patcher chucked an error and you sent it back fixed up and ready to go, I presume. The BIOS is original, but a bit older (late 2009, I think) as Intel royally screwed the pooch on BIOS updates completely wrecking overclocks after that.

    Ran the kextstat, hope it helps to get this thing sleeping properly at last. And anyone know what the heck that command line Nvidia card overclocker/tweaker was called? Kextstat.rtf

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    No need for a kext report. Aside from a couple of hardware driver kexts (ie, audio), fakeSMC is now the only additional one. Still boots fine without everything else. The thing is, the Project OSX FakeSMC kernel panic'd my machine on boot. I had to delete nearly all of the plugins (everything but ACPI, IntelThermal, and the Nvidia kext) to make it functional again. However, sleep still eludes me. There is progress as the machine will now fully sleep, shutting off the fans and LEDs. Mashing the keyboard springs those back to life, but doesn't wake the machine. USB and video are still dead and a reboot is the only way out. At least temps are working. Yay! My CPU definitely seems to run hotter in OS X than Windows, though. On top of that, I can finally get my GPU temp, which is getting disturbingly high. I seem to remember some command-line utility around here that could boost GPU fan speeds, but this was a while ago and it didn't support my card. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    On the upside, I've put that DSDT into place (you ROCK!), edited the boot.plist to enable CPU states, and turned those back on in the BIOS. Still running fine, so it hasn't been detrimental and I likely now have better power/thermal management (any way to test if it's working?). However, sleep is unchanged. It'll go to sleep with the fans and LEDs still running, no USB, and I cannot wake it by any means. Power button does nothing. I have to reboot. I'm wondering if I have an errant kext mucking things up. I seem to still be using NullCPUPowerManagement, OpenHaltRestart, PlatformUUID, and fakeSMC. I don't think any have been updated since the early days of SL as there hasn't been a need.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    [Line 436 type Error message Min/Max/Length/Gran are all zero, but no resource tag ] I get this when I run the patcher. Like I said before, my DSDT was auto-generated by a set of SL install scripts, so if something was bungled, I probably wouldn't know...
