  1. I have my GA-EX58 UD5 running fine for about two months now. Only two minor issues: I get a kernel panic when it wakes from sleep (so I disabled sleep) and only one network port worked (incompatible I think, one of the guides said to ignore). Otherwise a great system! However, I now realise I have a problem with the built-in ethernet port (I believe it's the Marvell one, as the other wouldn't work). Occasionally (happened twice now and usually if left system on) it refuses to obtain an IP address from my router (ethernet) - stating it's a self-assigned IP. It detects the cable being disconnected and reconnected though. It happened again last night, and I can't get it to refresh the IP. I tried adding a new network 'location' but that seemed to cause the control panel to partly hang. I'm now left with both ethernet ports not detecting a cable is present, so I have no network abilities. I have a MacBook too, which connects fine to the router via ethernet. Whats the best way to remove the existing network kext's and prefs and reinstall them? Or am I better off saving my data and reinstalling from scratch?? (currently running 10.5.7 + chameleon RC1)
  2. I'm really missing the ability to search for multiple files in a folder... I know this is really something that Spotlight is missing, but what i require, could I think be fed to an apple script. I need to find 100 specific files in amongst 1,000s. Is there any way to perform the search and label/copy/rename the files (ie, do something with them). The file names are already separated by a delimter. At the moment I run Sun's open source VirtualBox to run Windows, which has a network link to the root folder I want to search in, and I just use the search box to paste in a semi-colon delimited list. Vista/Win7 has the same problem as Spotlight - single file search. WinXP is still the only way I know how to do it. Any solutions?
  3. Natively OSX will only read NTFS drives. FAT32 is the only file system that both can read and write, but it's not desirable for big drives. So all your drives will show up on your desktop and you'll be able to read/copy files but not save/write. Paragon NTFS for Mac -- will allow Mac to read and write NTFS. Latest version 7 seems stable (I tried it many years ago and it was very unstable) - it did kernel panic my system while I told it to delete a few hundred gigabytes of old files though, so YMMV. Perfectly fine reading/copying data so far though. Apparently Snow Leopard will include HFS+ drivers for it's boot camps - so it would seem Windows will see better soon too. There already exists MacDrive and TransMac - the first, again, never experienced any stability. TransMac, nice little program, but is self contained and not a system driver - you use it to move/copy/format files from one place to another.
  4. GeForce 200 series support

    i just have to reply to say thank you netkas and to everyone else for their hard work - am now very happily running my GTX 260 on my Gigabyte EX58-UD5. CI/QE are now hardware accelerated with 896MB VRAM - and it runs sweeeeeet! as for install - removed NVinject kext and old geforce kext's, installed drivers and injectors, rebooted and rebuilt caches, all as per others have said earlier in this thread.
