  1. DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    First thanks to everyone for all these fixes. My system runs great now, even if I don't understand everything. One thing I cant get fixed is loading AppleLPC via DSDT. My pstates work and even sleep works, but I read that cstates will only work with AppleLPC being loaded. This is what cpuz tells me: Mainboard Model EP45-UD3R (0x249 - 0x2D9AA00) LPCIO ----------------------------------------------------- Vendor ITE Model IT8718 Vendor ID 0x90 Chip ID 0x8718 Revision ID 0x5 Config Mode I/O address 0x2E Can anyone give me a hint where to put these addresses? Thanks in advance.
  2. Gigabyte EP45_DS3L Frage eines Noobs ;)

    Nabend, probiers mal mit der generic-iso http://rapidshare.com/files/162007841/grub-dfe.iso.zip Kannst dann später immer noch die iso deines Boards runterladen und mounten und die kexte rausnehmen, die Du brauchst. Kann auch sein, dass Du das Image zu schnell gebrannt hast, also schön langsam brennen ;-)
  3. GA-EP45-DS3L oder GA-G31M-ES2L ?

    Kann Dir leider keine genaue Auskunft über Sleep geben. Ich brauche kein sleep und hab mich deswegen damit noch nicht beschäftigt. Vielleicht weiß jemand anderes hier mehr darüber.
  4. GA-EP45-DS3L oder GA-G31M-ES2L ?

    Hab ein EP45-DS3L ähnliches Board und kann nur gutes drüber berichten. Für Shutdown/Restart braucht man die OpenHaltRestart.kext Die Audio kext findest Du ebenfalls hier im Forum. Netzwerkkarte geht ab 10.5.6 oob und Firewire auch. Ich hab ne 10.5.6 Retail installation gemacht und es war alles andere als schwer. Du kannst das standard grub-dfe Image dafür benutzen. Liegt also bei dir, wieviel Du ausgeben möchtest.
  5. It might be related to a problem which I had a long time ago. I don't know if you guys have the same problem, but you might want to look into my old thread. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...c=90174&hl= Just open Terminal and run "sudo opensnoop >output1", let it run and wait. I suggest to leave it at least running for 10mins after the fan goes crazy, so you can compare it later. The rest is described in my thread. Make a backup of that file though.
  6. @gmacman try this for the Error 35: http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,83.0.html It worked for me.
  7. Honestly, you don't have to worry more than you would with any other operating system. OSX is pretty stealth by default. No services running/no open ports. As for Safari/ITunes/etc, I don't know. Not many people are developing exploits for them now because of the small userbase. And no, the Firewall won't help, because you're initiating the connection. The stealth mode only means that your box won't reply to a ping. You will rather get something by downloading malware/trojans instead of being hacked. Nobody hacks "dialups" with 0day exploits. If you apply the security updates, you're by 99% on the safe side.
  8. Alright, your conf is good, but a DNS-Server is missing. If you're going with a static ip, you have to assign your DNS manually too. Also open Terminal and enter this: ping If there is a reply, then the connection is established. For the DNS, you might be able to use your router for that. Depending how your router is configured. So either put into DNS-Server or the IP-Address of your ISP DNS-Server.
  9. Dunno about the sound, but I can see on your picture, that DHCP is enabled. Give your nic a static ip-address. If you go through the router, add the routers-ip in the preferences, if you go through your modem, you can leave that field blank. should work for you. Check your routers IP to be sure.
  10. Perfektes System?

    Danke für die Antwort, bin erfreut, dass die Boards so gut laufen. Ich denke ich werde erstmal meine alte 7300gt reintun und abwarten bis (hoffentlich) die HD4870 unterstützt wird. Ich will natürlich auch eine Retail-Installation vornehmen, aber eine Sache verstehe ich noch nicht so ganz: - Was ist DSDT? Finde haufenweise erklärungen wie man es anwendet, aber nirgendwo steht wofür man es braucht.
  11. HW advice for new hackintosh

    Thanks, do the two RTL8111C work as well? I see many people having problems with it.
  12. Perfektes System?

    Hallo, würde gerne Eure Meinung zu diesem System hören: Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3 oder GA-EP45-UD3R (sind beide gleich gut unter osx oder nicht?) 8 gigs ddr2 (wird von osx unterstützt?) Gainward HD4870 "Golden Sample" 1024mb oder Gainward GF9600GT Golden Sample 1024mb Würde lieber die HD4870 kaufen, aber ich hab gelesen, dass es mit dieser Karte probleme gibt. Auch weiß ich nicht ob überhaupt beide unterstützt werden, weil ich im Forum nichts über die 1024mb Karten finden konnte. Vielleicht hat einer von euch ja eine Karte und kann mir genaueres sagen. Danke und Gruß, Chris
  13. Hey, I need some hardware advice. I'm going to buy a new computer but I'm still unsure about some parts. Hopefully you can help me there. Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3 or GA-EP45-UD3R (do both work equally nice on osx?) 8 gigs ddr2 (board supports it, does osx too?) Gainward HD4870 "Golden Sample" 1024mb or Gainward GF9600GT Golden Sample 1024mb I'm really unsure about the GPU. I read the GF9600GT is supported since 10.5.6, but does the 1024mb version work well too? Also the HD4870 would be my prefered choice, but it seems it doesn't work well with osx, any news about that? Another thing: Will the fan run always at 100% or is it controlled by the OS? Thanks

  15. Hey, I tried searching everywhere, but I can't find a tutorial on how about to map the fn-key to a generic keyboard. I would like to have volume control via keyboard (inc/dec/mute). Also I can't make little volume changes in FrontRow, it only goes step-by-step, which is sometimes too loud. I read somewhere that it's possible while holding the shift key, but on my hackmac it does not work. Any hints on that hidden file or even a keyboard layout file is much appreciated.
