    Radeon HD 6990

    I'm also interested in getting a 6990 working. Anyone?

    [GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Lion

    I'm stuck. I've got InstallESD.dmg on my desktop and I've got the uncompressed install folder (which contains mkboot, finalize, etc). I open Terminal and type: I get this: So, then I mounted InstallESD.dmg, and copied Install Mac OS X Lion.app to my desktop. With InstallESD.dmg mounted I typed: I then get this: Then, with Install Mac OS X Lion.app still on my desktop I unmount InstallESD.dmg and try the same thing as above, and I get the same results. I've also tried this: And, again, I get this: What am I derping up here? Nothing seems to work.

    10.6.2 Released!

    I deleted sleepenabler and things seem to be working just fine now.

    10.6.2 Released!

    Thanks for the heads-up. I was just going to delete sleepenabler since I never sleep my Hacks anyway. Unfortunately I deleted my backup Snow Leopard installation a few weeks ago. I'm in the process of reinstalling it now so I can go in and fix things up in my main installation.

    10.6.2 Released!

    Installed 10.6.2 from Software Update and got a panic upon reboot. There's apparently a problem with sleepenabler.kext...
  6. SPDIF is working for me, but only in stereo. I can't pass 5.1 through optical.
  7. I have two Snow Leopard systems which work just fine for my purposes. I used blackosx's guide to get each of them up and running. With the DSDTs I made for each system stereo sound worked from the start, even over optical. The problem, however, is that even though sound does work through the optical SPDIF out of each of my motherboards, neither will output surround sound through SPDIF. One of the machines is just hooked up to ordinary computer speakers and so surround sound isn't an issue. The other machine is connected to my home theater and I'd like to get 5.1 passed through the optical connection to my receiver. As it stands, I can only get nice sounding stereo to go through. Does anyone have surround sound working through their optical port (SPDIF)? If so, how? Anyone else having problems in this regard?

    Snow Leopard 10.6 on a GA-EP35-DS3L

    I don't use any IDE drives so I wouldn't know if there's a problem. Sleep isn't working for me right now. It's strange, I played with a few different DSDTs. One of the DSDTs I made had sleep working right but I swapped it out with another one and now it doesn't work. I haven't tinkered with this system for a while so I can't remember what settings I had in my DSDT for sleep to work properly. It doesn't bother me because I like all my computers awake anyway so I can quickly move files around on my network. The words "Chameleon partition" designate my bootloader partition–the partition with the Chameleon bootloader installed. On that partition there's a folder called "Extra" and inside Extra there's a folder called "Extensions". When you see people say "E/E" they typically intend to refer to that file structure. So, in this case I'm saying that a kext with the name "LegacyHDA.kext" is in the Extensions folder which is in the Extra folder on my bootloader partition. Hope that helps.

    Snow Leopard 10.6 on a GA-EP35-DS3L

    I've got a GA-EP35-DS3L machine with working sound in SL. I used blackosx's guide which entails DSDT patching plus LegacyHDA.kext in E/E of the Chameleon partition. Works very well. I even get sound through digital optical out (SPDIF). The only problem is that I can't seem to pass 5.1 sound over the optical line to my surround sound system. Other than that, sound works perfectly.

    Geekbench Scores

    I finally managed to get this thing stable at these clocks on air. I love that this two year old 4-core machine performs similarly to a current ~$3000 4-core Mac Pro. That makes me smile. 4-Core Hackintosh 64bit: $1200 Two Years Ago 32bit For comparison: 4-Core Mac Pro 64bit: $2,649 Now

    Snow Leopard (Geekbench 2 Scores)

    Here's mine. http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/172291 Not bad for an over two year old computer, if I do say so myself. Also, Geekbench isn't reporting my CPU speed correctly. It says 3.97GHz but it was actually 3.87GHz (1720MHz / 4 = 430MHz FSB x 9(CPU multiplier) = 3870MHz).
  12. Are you guys using a DSDT file?
  13. One of the previous times I installed Snow Leopard on my system I used the USB boot drive method. The dsdt.aml file I made only had the CMOS fix and, of course, when the computer would sleep I would get the sleep/wake USB device removal problem upon waking the system. Other than that, the system was perfect. So, I added the SATA fix and EHCI USB fix to my dsdt.aml. In a way that fixed the device removal problem, but only because sleep didn't work after that. I've now abandoned the USB boot drive method. For my most recent installation I restored the Snow Leopard install disc image to a 10GB Cham partition and then installed the bootloader to that same partition. No more USB. Now I use my dsdt.aml file without the SATA or EHCI USB fixes and the computer sleeps and wakes just fine. I didn't really fix the USB problem, I just don't use any USB drives anymore so I don't get the warning...give and take I guess. Anyway, I'm curious as to whether other people with this board have the device removal problem and how they've corrected it. With the EHCI USB fix, has anyone else had problems with sleep not working?
  14. I just used Software Update. It worked without a hitch.
  15. Do you have access to a Windows installation? If so, use the patcher from blackosx's guide.
