    XServe Raid Conversion Kit

    I'd totally be interested in this!

    Hey Gus, does your mobo have thunderbolt ports, and if yes, do they work?

    10.6.3 Released !

    This is a useless comment as you don't even put what hardware you've been using -.-
  4. Hey Verdant, have you tried checking Eno's nForce LAN driver Info.plist? Because I checked it and found out that my LAN PCI id (0x037310de) was not in there eventhough Eno stipulates in his 1st post that it's included. Maybe he forgot it? Anyway, I removed all the PCI ids in the info.plist and just added mine: 0x037310de&0xfffeffff Further down in the info.plist there's an entry called Optimizationmode. By default it's set to 1. I changed it to 0. Since then no issues so far. No random freezing, etc.. Hopefully it stays that way because the freeze sometimes occurs several hours after lol

    nForce LAN driver

    Hi Eno, I don't know if it's meant to be or it was just a mistake on your part but in your 1st post where you have the list of all the supported PCI ids, mine is in it: 0x003710de Since, your driver (0.62.3n beta) was causing me random freeze issues I checked the info.plist and noticed that 0x003710de was not in there. So I removed all the PCI ids and just put 0x037310de&0xfffeffff. I also set optimization mode to 0 and now the driver works like a charm, for now. I've been downloading a lot stuff and no problems so far. Hopefully it stays that way. Will report back if I have any issues. Good work on the driver PS: so maybe you can add that PCI id in the list?

    nForce LAN driver

    What kernel are you using? Try the Voodoo kernel (link in my sig) as Eno suggests. It might solve your problem. It didn't solve it for me though but it did for some people so just try it. I'm just waiting for that new driver that is delivered with the new macbooks.
  7. This is a support thread for nForce chipset motherboards. Yours is an Intel chipset motherboard so you won't get help here. I suggest you find the appropriate thread for your kind of motherboard.
  8. I installed the 9.5.0 Voodoo beta 2c kernel and it works wonders with my 680i board. I can actually now use my full 4GB of ram where before I had to use the maxmem=2048 flag to have my setup stable. As described in the kernel instructions, I replaced my old AppleSMBIOS.kext and System.kext with the 10.5.5 vanilla ones and added the appleSMBIOSEFI.kext by Chun-Nan. Bye bye old 9.4.0 You can get the 9.5.0 voodoo kernel at: http://code.google.com/p/xnu-dev/ and the appleSMBIOSEFI.kext at: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=108606 For the vanilla System and appleSMBIOS kexts, just use Pacifist and extract them from Apple's 10.5.5 ComboUpdate: http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/mac...omboupdate.html or just download them below if you're too lazy or have a too slow connection to get the comboupdate. Enjoy. appleSMBIOS_System_10.5.5_kexts_Vanilla.zip

    nForce LAN driver

    Hi Eno, I just tried your 0.61.5alpha_osx nforce LAN driver. It only works (and works really well) when I'm using the cpus=1 flag. Without the flag, my system just freezes completely at random times. The system itself doesn't freeze but my keyboard and mouse (both USB) become non-responsive. Tried to hook up my usb dongle and mac doesn't recognize (it usually does). I had a video still playing while my keyboard and mouse froze so I know that the system doesn't completely freeze. Just the USB ports seem to be affected, haven't tried the Firewire ports. My board is an nForce 680i with a pci id of 0x037310de (which is included in your driver). Nevertheless, good job on the driver as it seems to work for a lot of people
  10. Good thing Mysticus insisted on people having their hardware specs in their signature... Did antfros actually even read the 1st post of this thread? Shameful, really shameful that the 1st people to ask help are the ones that don't even read the 1st post...
  11. Good job man, I did the same thing as we both had the same problem, and it worked! The only thing though, is that I didn't have to boot with cpus=1 nor run the post update prior to the 10.5.5 update. But hey, as long as it works, thx for providing a solution
  12. Successfully updated my 10.5.2 Kalyway install to 10.5.5 with 9.4.0 Kernel using Mysticus' 10.5.5 ComboUpdate patch. Here's how I did it (1 dedicated hard drive for mac): - installed Kalyway 10.5.2 (using Mysticus' guide of this thread, see 1st page) with 2 partitions (Main and Test) - booted on my Main partition - cloned my Main partition on the Test partition - re-booted on the Test partition - installed all the updates from Software Update available, EXCEPT THE 10.5.5 UPDATE, DON'T INSTALL THIS ONE! - downloaded the 10.5.5 ComboUpdate from Apple's website: HERE - downloaded Mysticus' comboupdate patch 1.1.2 from Bike Town - ran the pre patch package provided by Mysticus from his comboupdate patch 1.1.2 - installed the 10.5.5 ComboUpdate downloaded from Apple's website - kernel panic occurred right after the update finished installing. From Mysticus' guide, there shouldn't be any kernel panics. (If you don't have any Kernel panics, then just run the post update package. Make sure you don't restart your computer though!) - re-booted on the Main partition (do not reboot if you didn't get any Kernel Panics and just run the Post update package!) - ran the post update package provided by Mysticus from his comboupdate patch 1.1.2 BUT selected the Test partition (the partition I installed the 10.5.5 comboupdate on, makes sense) - chose the 9.40 Kernel (9.2.0 Kernel worked too but 9.5.0 didn't work for me), chose the appropriate graphic driver, chose "Restore Audio", chose "Restore Network", everything else I left unchecked (including chipset) - after installation done, re-booted on the Test partition, computer re-booted a 2nd time by itself (it's normal after a comboupdate) - now enjoying my new 10.5.5 setup But remember, this is how I did it. It might not work for you! Do it at your own risk, I will not be held responsible if something screws up! Obviously, big thanks to Mysticus for all his hard work
  13. I have the exact same problem. I did a clean install of Kalyway 10.5.2. Installed the "Prepare for Combo Update". Didn't restart. Then ran the 10.5.5 combo update and got a panic at around 80% of the install.
  14. Ok. I just updated to 10.5.4 (from 10.5.3) but I'm still using the 9.2.0 kernel as the new 10.5.4 kernel (9.4.0) prevented me from booting. Couldn't even get to the Apple logo. I have a test partition, which is an image of my main partition. So as I couldn't boot on my Test partition after the update, I just rebooted on my main and replaced the new Kernel with the old one I had backed up. Rebooted on the Test partition and here we are. This update seems pretty safe. Just do a backup of your current mach_kernel and install the 10.5.4 update. Then, instead of of restarting, replace the new mach_kernel with your backup one. Then Restart. Everything is working great so far. Firefox, Final Cut Pro, iTunes, etc.. are all working fine.
