  1. A real SB600 .kext/patch, please?

    I patched the Zephyroth 10.5.1 AMD image with this and installed on my SB600 SATA drive successfully. After the installation, I copied both kexts to the hard drive (using the install DVD) and chmod'd them recursively to 755 and chown'd them recursively to root:wheel, then booted with -f. After some FireWire messages, the dis{c,k} drives stop and the message "Still waiting for root device" repeats at one-minute intervals, and the system does not boot. Any suggestions for fixing this? Do I need to delete Extensions.mkext (or the like) rather than boot with -f? Thanks.
  2. unknown SIGSEGV code 0 (Kalyway 10.5.2)

    Leo4All didn't work, either. Same error. chrs2021: I did not see those during the installation of either Kalyway or Leo4All. Where might I find them? p.s. I'm downloading Zephyroth 10.5.1 for AMD SSE2/SSE3 right now. I'm fairly certain that this is what I had before. Hopefully it works, and hopefully the software that I very much need to use supports it.
  3. unknown SIGSEGV code 0 (Kalyway 10.5.2)

    Yeah, I'm getting Leo4All too. Tried a load of different boot options with no luck.
  4. I've got Kalyway 10.5.2 with AMD and Intel support installed on my second partition, after a 100GB partition for Windows. The installation went great, detected my hard drive, booted up without any extra flags, etc. But now that it's installed, it throws the error shown in the title. My system: Model = Toshiba Satellite A215-S7433 Processor = AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core TK-55 Video = ATI RADEON X1200 Wireless = Realtek RTL8187B Motherboard = ATI SB600 Those should be the important specs. I'll dig up more in-depth ones at request. If you need any more messages from the boot sequence, let me know--I forgot to write them down when I was trying to boot. Thanks. p.s. It might be useful to note that I've installed Leopard on this laptop before--10.5.1. Can't remember the distribution, but it was for AMD processors. It worked, but I couldn't get the graphics card to smooth out and Realtek didn't have an RTL8187B driver for Leopard yet.
  5. Ati radeon Xpress X1200

    Sorry to bring up a slightly old thread, but, has anyone with this card (RADEON Xpress X1200) managed to get it working? I've tried Katana, Callisto, Natit, and the built-in drivers, and the System Profiler always states the kext for the Graphics/Displays as "No kext loaded."
  6. Two Components

    Okay, after much trial and error, patching DVDs with SATA drivers, and so on, I finally got myself a working Leopard system on my Toshiba Satellite A215-S7433 (I know, "boo!"). I'm loving what I've seen so far, and already have Colloquy, Xcode, TextMate, and Transmission installed. However, all of this had to be done at 1024x768 (very uncomfortable on a widescreen, as anyone who has had to deal with it would know) and through a stolen CAT5 cable from one of my servers. Why? There doesn't seem to be any RTL8187B and RADEON Xpress X1200 drivers for Leopard. I've installed the RTL8187L package for Tiger off of Realtek's site, but, alas, the manager app for that freezes as soon as I launch it. This is likely for two reasons: The driver is for the RTL8187L, not the RTL8187B The driver is also for Tiger, not Leopard So, I'm stuck with an Ethernet cable that confines me to my room when I want to use the 'Net on Leopard. In addition, for the RADEON Xpress X1200, nothing seems to work. I've tried Callisto, Katana, Natit, etc. and the kext always stays the same in the System Profiler: No kext loaded. If anyone has the drivers for these components, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could post them or a link to them. Or even a guide on patching the pre-existing drivers, i.e. ATIRadeonX1000.kext and RTL8187Bt.kext. Thanks. Edit: It is a RADEON Xpress X1200. Still can't find anything, though.
  7. Hardware for Leopard

    Oh well. Thanks anyways.
  8. I'm considering installing Leopard (Kalyway 10.5.1) on my Toshiba Satellite A215-S7433. It has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-55, 2 GB of DDR2 memory, an ATI Radeon X1200 for graphics, and a Realtek RTL8187b wireless card. However, I can't start fiddling with it until I know that it will connect to the network and support my graphics card. Does anyone know if Hackintosh supports these devices? I've been searching for a while now and haven't found anything. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Edit: ATI SB600 is the motherboard.
  9. ToH Leopard RC2 Installer Won't Load

    I'm aware that it's SSE2-only, that's why I tried the ToH RC2...it said SSE2/SSE3... jeremiahzg$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -i flags flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm up Upgrading is currently not an option. It's likely to become on in mid-2008, but not right now. I'll try a flat image, which is what I used for Tiger, but the image's file system information has a set size, and I've allocated roughly 40 GB for Leopard and would like to be able to utilize it. Perhaps I'll start a separate thread.
  10. ToH Leopard RC2 Installer Won't Load

    I don't exactly know...like I said, it's a prebuilt Gateway from 1999. My sister gave it to me before I even knew that other operating systems besides Windows existed. Tomorrow I'll take it apart and see if there's anything printed on the hardware.
  11. I downloaded ToH Leopard RC2 and burned it to a DVD+RW at 1x. Upon rebooting, the DVD loads the proper kexts and then halts shortly after setting the graphics mode. Here is the log. The following boot parameters were tried, with no different outcome: -v -v -s -v -x -v -s -x -v platform=X86PC -v -s platform=X86PC -v -x platform=X86PC -v -s -x platform=X86PC Here are my system specifications: Processor: Intel Pentium 4, 1.30 GHz Memory: 512 MB (4x 128 MB) RDRAM Power: 300W Graphics (from lspci on Linux): nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] (rev b2); NVidia / SGS Thomson (Joint Venture) Riva128 (rev 10) Hard disks: 120 GB Western Digital (7200 RPM), 1 GB Samsung (? RPM) Those are all of the specifications that I know...this is a prebuilt Gateway from 1999 with upgraded memory, power, and hard disks. Currently I have Tiger 10.4.1 (flat install) up and running very nicely, albiet lacking in software. 10.4.1 is incredibly outdated, so if anyone could assist me in installing 10.5.0, that would be great! - Jeremiah
