    NTFS in Snow Leopard?

    I have Chameleon RC3 and I have no problems at all. Maybe if you'll post your kernel log... @Freaky Chokra Sure man np . You should be advised though that if your ntfs volume is dirty (and so mounted by OSX in the ro mode) it's most likely that your sistem will get a KP. Hope it's not the case but if it happens you should run at once windows chkdsk to correct the ntfs dirty bit. Anyway for safety reasons I mount my ntfs volume only when needed. I mean Apple surely has a good (tehnical) reason for the default read only mounting of ntfs volumes.

    NTFS in Snow Leopard?

    I assumed it was obvious that the commas don't go in the fstab line .

    There is a much much simpler solution that works with the default ntfs kext included in SL. Just create in /etc a fstab file in wich add the folowing : LABEL="your ntfs drive name" none ntfs rw Reboot and you'll have RW acces over that drive. More NTFS drives ... more labels...

    SL on ASUS P5K Pro [Success]

    Try to boot in single user mode (-s ) and folow these steps /sbin/fsck -fy /sbin/mnt -uw / kextcache -v 1 -t -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions/ exit Tell me if it boots up... Try to install the new Chameleon RC3. Search the forum for the installer package.

    SL on ASUS P5K Pro [Success]

    It seems that your dmsos.kext isn't loading. Did you repair permissions with the kext utility under the ATools folder ? If you did that (from safe mode... where you can boot) and still have the problem try to replace your dmos.kext from /System/Lybrary/Extensions with the one under the ATools driver Repair permissions at boot in single user mode. Use the -s switch at boot and then /sbin/fsck -fy /sbin/mnt -uw / kextcache -v 1 -t -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions/ type exit and see if it boots up If that does not work use netkas dsmos for SL --> http://netkas.org/?p=126 and repeat the steps above. Rememebr that after any kext install you must repair permissions.

    SL on ASUS P5K Pro [Success]

    From scratch of course. It seems like your destination disk is mounted in read only mode (I assume you're trying to install SL from a working Leopard). Try to umount the drive with disk utily and then mount it again.
  7. Hello After some unsuccessful vanilla installs i decided to have my try with the russian distro (SnowOSX_Universal_10.6(432)GM-v3.5) and what do you know... it worked almost perfectly. My system specs are : Mb : Asus P5K Pro Processor : Intel Core 2 Duo 2.67 Ghz Ram : 4Gb Video : Nvidia 8500 GT 256 Ram Sound : M-audio Revo 5.1 Lan : D-link card (Rtl8139) (my onboard lan has a malfunction) Guide when everything goes as planned : 1. Burn the iso with Disk Utility and boot it 2. Format you install Hdd with Disk utility ( I used Guid partition table) 3. Launch terminal and patch your DSDT : cd / sh MakeDSDT /Volumes/'your SL install volume name' Close Terminal 4. Start the installation (by default the ps2 and IntelPIIXAta_Fix kexts are not selected so you can do that in the customize menu) 5. After the reboot (F8 to select your SL Hdd) you should have the SL welcome screen so the first step after you see your SL desktop is to go Application/Atools and repair your permissions with KextHelper else you'll have a KP soon. 6. After another reboot use The /Applications/ATools/_System/EFIStudio to add your video card in the Boot.plist and after another reboot you're kind of done. My situation : After installing at first booting the dvd got some problems with the ethernet driver and then some startup freezing after I used the Migration tool to transfer my Leopard user and settings. So my final install took place from Leopard (much, much faster obviously) : 1. Mount your SnowOSX Universal distro 2. Format your install drive with Disk Utility (again I used GUID) 3. Open terminal and : sudo cd /Volumes/MacOSXInstall sh MakeDSDT /Volumes/'your SL install volume name' 4. In finder go to /Volumes/MacOSXInstall/System/Installation/Packages/ and launch OSInstall.mpkg Choose your SL install volume and in Customize choose the PS2 and IntelPIIXAta_Fix (not sure if this one is a must) 5. After the install is finished install in your Leopard the ATools_Snow.pkg and then after is finished go to /Applications/ATools/_System/ and install Chameleon_DFE_for_Hard_Disk.pkg onto your SL install disk. 6. At this point you can insert your video string into Boot.plist or do that later from SL. 7. If like me you have rtl8139 netoworkcard and have problems with it delete the RTL8139Ethernet.kext inside the IONetworkingFamily.kext and put PCGenRTL8139Ethernet.kext 8. reboot ( F8 to select the SL boot HDD) and once in SL use the KextHelper to repair permissions Note : About this Mac reports "64-bit Kernel and Extensions: No" and that's not a big concern for me right now as the SL system performs flawlessly. In fact after a week of testing I erased Leopard and now SL is my main OS. I'm not a OSX86 guru and have just normal Google skills but if you have questions I will try to answer as best I can. Thank you and have fun.

    Succesfuly installed on my system (Revolution 5.1). Yet I have a question : the driver has 5.1 sound support ? Altough in Midi setup I set the 5.1 speakers option and the noise test works Itunes and other applications gives sound only to the front speakers. Thank you.
