  1. 10.5.6 Released!

    Damnit, I lost sound after the update. Also, my USB headset isn't detected either. Any ideas, guys? It's ALC883 onboard audio on the ASUS motherboard that appears on my signature. EDIT: Reinstalled the Taruga AppleHDA kext using OSX86 Utils by ~pcwiz, and that did the trick. Upon restart I have both my internal soundcard and USB headset working. EDIT2: However, my Firewire card isn't detected anymore. I don't really use it all that much, so it's no big deal, but does anyone have a fix for that?
  2. 10.5.6 Released!

    Is that AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext you link to the same as the one from 10.5.5? If so, I already have that on my /Extra/Extensions folder, along with the PMDisabler kext. Also I have PC_EFI v9 and did the DSDT Patcher (leaving that dsdt.aml on my / ). Am I good to go for 10.5.6?
  3. 10.5.6 Released!

    I'm not sure of which file he is referring to on his post, I'm attaching my own IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext to this post - I took it straight out of my /Extra/Extensions folder. Not sure if it's the same thing as the one he is talking about, but hey, just trying to help. Also, if anyone can help me with my issue on Post #176 in Page 9 I'd greatly appreciate it. IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext.zip
  4. 10.5.6 Released!

    Guys, just want to do a bit of double-checking with y'all before I attempt to update my system. Let me preface by saying that I am currently running a Retail Leopard Install using BOOT132 DFE thingamajiggy (applied straight to the HDD for booting - no need for Boot CD), and it's on it's own separate Hard Drive too (I'm not dual booting with any other operating system). System has been running smoothly as long as I can remember. Now, I read the whole deal with the needing to update the DSDT or whatever it is, and I tried following the instructions to the best of my ability. Here's what I did, plus some screenshots, and I'm just looking for confirmation that I've followed the steps appropiately. 1) Install PC EFI v9 (latest version) a.k.a. the Chameleon package that came with the DSDT Patcher GUI by ~pcwiz 2) Ran DSDT Patcher with the options for Darwin (as I don't need to dual boot), and the "Apply to Hard Drive" option to my Leopard HDD. 3) Checked to see the files on the root / were placed there correctly (both dsdt.aml and boot) - Here's the screenshots of Finder and Terminal showing the files being there. 4) Copied the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext file from 10.5.5 onto my /Extras/Extensions folder, as I've read I'm going to need to do this because 10.5.6 puts a different version of that file into the /System/Library/Extensions and I'm guessing that the 10.5.5 ver. of the file is needed over the new one. Here's what my Extras folder looks like - note the presence of the IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext there, and ignore the ACPIPS2Nub.kext since I don't use PS2 devices. 5) Rebooted my system, which rebooted into OS X just fine. 6) Downloading the 372mb file from the Apple website (Software Update shows me the 377mb one, I'm asuming it's the same file) So first of all, am I on the right track so far? And if so, what next? Just install the update as is and it should be fine? Thanks for any input you guys can provide.

    Considering it's an older game, you might have more success trying to run it through VMware Fusion 2, rather than mucking around with Cider. I'm afraid I don't have more help than that, really. You could always try with the latest edition of Cider available at a later point.
  6. Fallout 3 using Oblivion's Cider

    Has anyone tried running Fallout 3 using Oblivion's cider .app? It *is* the same game engine after all. And to my surprise, the game runs even smoother than Oblivion ever did on this setup (on Windows, of course), so I kinda think there's a chance that it might work. Anyone tried it?
  7. Slimbuild - Boot-132 CD Creator for OS X

    This is awesome. I'm definitely downloading this and keeping it handy. And YES for a pcwiz GUI!
  8. I'm not sure what you mean by "having to change the boot file". This is simple. If you want to use the \Extras\Extensions\ method of loading .kexts when your computer starts, you need to have the BOOT132 CD's boot file on your HDD's root - replacing the one that Chameleon installs for you. Once that's done, you don't need to change that file again. It's a "only once" step. After that, just dragging and dropping .kexts into the \Extras\Extensions\ folder should do the trick - I personally never changed the permissions on any of the files in there, but it may be because the correct permissions were set beforehand - again I'm not exactly sure.
  9. Cannot wait. Go get 'em, tiger! Er... Leopard!
  10. Maybe bought a pirated version of Leopard?

    Gotta say, you took that one like a champ. Kudos, mate. Usually that would've continued the feud of flaming, but not this time. I'm proud of you.
  11. Maybe bought a pirated version of Leopard?

    They did, along with not buying into "too good to be true" deals. Funny how that works, huh?
  12. You kinda almost get the idea. Basically, you *need* to replace the boot file on your HDD's root with the one that's on your BOOT132 CD. Why? Because that boot file is the one that calls for the .kext files placed in \Extras\Extensions. The reason why your system is booting just fine now is because the extensions were probably installed in the \System\Library\Extensions folder. And yes, that'll work, but as you say, if tomorrow you upgrade to, say, OS X 10.5.6, those extensions in the *real* extensions folder will probably be overwritten by the system update. However, if you put those kext files in \Extra\Extensions AND have the BOOT132's boot file in place of Chameleon's one on your HDD root, those files inside that folder will run *before* the ones on the \System\Library\Extensions run, disabling the ones that would make your system not run, without having to manually add them anywhere after each system update. To wrap up: if you put that Extras folder on your HDD, and the boot file from the CD onto the HDD replacing Chameleon's boot file, you'd be a) replicating the BOOT132 CD's effect from "cancelling" the \System\Library\Extensions\ stuff while actually booting the system and future proofing so that you don't have to deal with replacing kexts after each system update. I hope that clears it up, I tend to ramble.
  13. Noob with os X

    The Terminal is essentially OSX's version of the DOS Command Window (Start > Run > cmd). However, it's works just like most *NIX command line utilities, so it's closely related to those found on Linux, for instance. Think of it as your command line utility on OS X and you are good to go. As for file extensions, the ones that will be most different to you will be things like: .app, which equals to .exe, only that unlike a Windows program, a .app is a self-contained application (meaning, everything it needs to work is *inside* of it, not in a Folder like you'd find in Program Files\Application). .kext, which is a driver file. In windows, the closest thing would be a .ini for drivers. .dmg, which is essentially a renamed .iso file. Those are the ones you'll run into more often than not. However, bear in mind that unlike Windows, you don't *really* have to be aware of file extensions in OS X. Since most file dependencies from applications are a non-issue (due to apps being self contained in most cases), and the other kinds of files being multi-platform (mp3, mp4, mov, avi, jpg, gif, doc, xls, etc.), you won't have many troubles on that front.
  14. Eve-Online - Anyone got it working?

    That doesn't surprise me. For example, I tried running Fable: The Lost Chapters via Cider, and no go - won't even launch. But I booted up my XP partition on VMWare Fusion 2, and the game runs just fine, at 1280x800, with settings on normal. Considering that's virtualization and I have a {censored} videocard, I was very impressed. I'm aware that this is a bit off-topic, but I thought I'd chime in on that.
  15. Maybe bought a pirated version of Leopard?

    I am as astonished as you are about that. But what can I say, that's what both System Profiler and WinXP tell me about my RAM. I know for a fact it's DDR2. I know it's 2GB. But it's 266mhz. I don't know if it's just a wrong setting on my Motherboard or that the memory can actually be this slow or what. Games run fine, power apps run fine, so I'm at a loss myself.
