  1. Driver for NVidia GS 8400 for 10.5.6

    Hi, I have an ASUS 8400GS 512mb card with id 06e4. I've got it working using EFI studio with DVI output. The NVCAP I'm using is BAAAAAAAAwAEAAAAAAAABwAAAAA= My Specs are :- nVidia GeForce 8400 GS: Chipset Model: nVidia GeForce 8400 GS Type: Display Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 512 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x06e4 Revision ID: 0x00a1 ROM Revision: nVidia GeForce 8400 GS OpenGL Engine [EFI] Displays: CMC 17" AD: Resolution: 1280 x 1024 @ 60 Hz Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Hardware Accelerated Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Supported Rotation: Supported QuartzGL: Supported Display Connector: Status: No display connected All resolutions are supported. Hope this helps.
  2. AMD CPU Throttling in Leopard

    Hi, Tried your CPU Throttler yesterday. Worked fine for me - I saw the messages changing the CPU's freq in a terminal. But then I have a tk-55 too - so it would work fine for me. No GUI jerkyness - I have a nForce 6100 which has no drivers to enable QE/CI. But everything works in slow motion at lower freq - the maximising and minimising animations, the fisheye effect on the dock - everything seems slow. That is different from and Intel mac where the CPU freq reduces and the machine slows down - but the GUI doesn't get into slow motion. Not sure if your Throtller has anything to do with it though. HAven't tried to see how much it improves battery perf. Will post results when I get to measure them. BTW - I'm running 10.5.5 with modbin 9.4.0 kernel. Good work.
  3. Hi ! Assuming you have a usb port on the right hand side of your machine - try plugging in any usb device (a flash drive / pen drive) on this side before starting up the laptop. Somehow, this seems to help getting the ps/2 keyb and mouse recognised. Also use ACPIPS2Nub.kext. That helps too. Easier to carry a pen drive along instead of a USB keyb and mouse :-)
  4. well you can try leo4all v3. That seems to work fine. I have created my own DVD using the brazilmac patch for my F730US (which has pretty much the same config except for the processor). Most amd dvd's should work for you - make sure they have MeDevils sata driver if you plan on using the internal hdd. External hdd's should be no prob with just about any dist. Once you are set up - take a look at my thread (link in sig) for resolving some common issues.
  5. keyboard problems with < >

    it would be nice if you posted your hardware specs. To guess - check if you have ApplePS2Controller.kext in /System/Library/Extensions. Then see if ACPIPS2Nub.kext is being loaded during the boot by typing F8 and -v during boot up.
  6. Well, to get resolution change on this video adaptor do the following :- GeForce Go 6100 / 6150 - Managed to get it working at 1280x800 [credit goes to andy.karpov] (Delete/Move Geforce*.kext, NV*.kext. Install MacVidia 1.0.81; don't restart; open terminal; type 'sudo mkdir/NVBackup' type 'sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/NV*.bundle /NVBackup' then type 'sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/NV*.plugin /NVBackup' restart - open display properties and get 1280x800.
  7. @dude998866 - Try booting with the flag -v and see if the AppleNForceATA.kext is giving any messages. On my laptop, the driver gives messages like :- AppleNForceATA: NVIDIA nForce MCP 51 Serial ATA by MeDevil (CMD 0x30c0, CTR 0x30b4, IRQ 23, BM 0x3090) You can also open a terminal window and type 'kextstat | grep AppleNfForceATA' to check if the driver is loaded. Also, use the disk utility to prepare your hfsplus partition before you move on to installing OSX. If the driver is loaded - you should see the disk in disk utility. @thinkbrown : To install PC_EFI on a Linux Machine 1. Copy boot_v8 to the /boot directory 2. Make an entry in grub as follows :- title Leopard root (hd0,5) ----> your linux partition with the /boot/boot_v8 file kernel /boot/boot_v8 boot If you're using a GUID OSX only system (instructions from PC_EFI v8 readme.txt) 1. Create directory 'iamefi' in the root folder of osx boot disk 2. Copy all included files (in PC_EFI.zip) to this directory (iamefi) 3. Boot into single user mode using F8 followed by -s on boot up 4. Enter following commands :- a) mount -uw / b ) cd /iamefi c) ./startupfiletool /dev/rdiskXsX ./boot_v8 -----> rdiskXsX is the OSX partition OSX style d) reboot You should have EFI working.
  8. Add MeDevils driver to the IOATAFaimly.kext/Contents/Plugins folder Add you sata controllers id to the Info.plist if it is not already there. Remove the Viaata driver for now. Boot with -v and see what messages the driver is showing - and which driver is seeing your sata drive. Post the messages.
  9. If you have a nForce chipset - you chould be using MeDevil's AppleNForceATA.kext to get your SATA HDD recognised. I'm not sure if Kalyway has this kext in it. Please check - you might need to select it to install. Hope this helps.
  10. no Dock after 10.5.4 update

    How did you replace the Dock ? You'll need to boot into single user mode with -s and then replace the files. Or use the install DVD with terminal. This worked for me. There is a similar thread at infinitemac. Try going through it if you cant find any solution.
  11. Boot with -v and check the error messages. You'll come to know if ACPIPS2nub is being loaded or not. If it is and you still have this problem - try replacing the IOUSBFamily.kext. Worked for me.
  12. You need to install an appropriate kernel for AMD machines. Search for a kernel version depending on your version of OSX. eg for OSX v10.5.2 use kernel 9.2.0. Use google to get the kernel - or use irc.osx86.hu
  13. no Dock after 10.5.4 update

    Assuming you have backed up the older Dock.app (from 10.5.3) replace the 10.5.4 version of Dock with the older one. Things should be back to normal now.
  14. Take a look at my post for Compaq Presario Laptops. Post there if you have any issues. The search helps. Post your hardware details in your post / Signature. Helps others help you.
