  1. Ghosting OSX 10.4.X

    I did a complete clone of my osx86 partition the other day (to transfer it to my newer bigger hard drive setup with 3 partitions and triple booting Ubuntu, XP, X86) I tried three native OS X programs to do so.... Super Duper....Carbon Copy Cloner and NetRestore Helper.... Carbon Copy Cloner gave me the best results with a flawless copy, even if it's PPC application it did a working clone of my system to the new partition. I had some bootloader issues after....but everything' good now. By the way for those who also have a Windows XP installation to clone as well...I also did it from my OSX86 system using the latest version of NetRestore Helper to create the Disk Image and NetRestore to restore it to another partition.... Carbon Copy Cloner and NR - NRH are available on Mike Bombich's web site P.S. more than one drive is required, so 2 internal or an external USB2 or Firewire drive....
  2. Essential Applications and Utilites

    Cabos (the best Limewire client for OS X86 IMO.....even in PPC/Java only version....) The source code is available for those you would like to recompile..... Azureus a full featured Bittorrent client for OSX86 as well..... Goliath a webdav client..... Gimp.app a nice package of gimp for OSX86....(requires X11) but oh sooooooo sweeeeet......
  3. Callisto Technical Discussion

    All those asking about Core Image and Quartz Extreme should go have a read on Omni's web site.... Basically, he stated that CI and QE are NOT controlled by Callisto....His driver has nothing to do with those two.... It's possible to enable one or both, (depending on your card) by adding your card ID# inside a specific extension kext..... You will find the recipe for that if you search this forum, maybe in the Genius bar (I think)......
  4. Callisto Technical Discussion

    Success!!!!! On HP X1000 laptop with 10.4.3 on ATI 9200 mobility 32 MB ram, with 15''4 LCD display... Now running in optimal 1280x800 resolution thanks to build 3 of Calisto...... Some little issues after 'Restart' ....but fine after complete 'Shut Down' Thank you Omni, You're the man... Wow!!!! On the day of the MacBook release!!!! Now I don't need one....because I can use this PC with OS X on it all the time now..... Merci Beaucoup
  5. Callisto Technical Discussion

    O.K. installed Build 2 of the driver on ATI 9200 mobility on 10.4.3 Driver loaded O.K. like build 1....more info displayed and seems accurate except for the Card model # 9000 lf ?! Radeon Mobility 9000 Lf: Chipset Model: Radeon Mobility 9000 Lf Type: Display Bus: PCI VRAM (Total): 32 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x4c66 Revision ID: 0x0001 Displays: Color LCD: Resolution: 1024 x 768 @ 60 Hz Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Not Supported Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Not Supported This on laptop with 1280x800 native LCD When trying to switch to 1280x800 from 1024x768, The screen goes a bit out of sync or range and the switching back works after a reboot.... The display used to go black with build 1, so this is an improvement.... Your getting close guys..... Thanks for all your efforts.....really.....
  6. omni driver for ATI with QE/CI/GL

    I don't care about QE and CI....since I use my laptop for work, not leisure.... I do care about wide screen resolutions..... Way to go Omni, you rock.....
  7. OS X 10.4.6 - just released

    Well actually the standalone installer is not that interesting, but the combo updater is.....in fact, I think it's the first ever combo updater available for intel based Macs.... http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/mac...boforintel.html If maxxuss can hack it as well, it might make updating all the pre 10.4.5 systems a lot easier.... Not that I'm convinced that updating in a frenzy is the smart way to go....unless there's a fix you can't live without..... I'm happy in 10.4.3, everything I need, works, so I'm staying put....let everyone else sort out the unforseen problems....
  8. It's probably in 8500 kext ......look for your device ID # in it..... Also if your card is recognized as PCI in X86 but is AGP, this hint wont work until you get the card loaded/recognized as an AGP card!!!!
  9. It's possible. But booting off an external USB2 might not be pratical. I tried with my laptop and for some reason it only works in USB1,....so too slow to be usefull. The same drive mounted internaly boots fine.....
  10. Radeon M9 in 600m

    Another kext.... In 10.4.1 used to be AppleI386PCI.kext since 10.4.3 no longer used.... In 10.4.3 it's IOPCIFamily.kext.... You have to know the Id # of your bridge to add it in IOPCEFamily.kext..... You get the Id # in Windows or Linux.... P.S. Let me know if it works for you.... No go for me....
  11. ATI Dual-Head?

    It is if the ATI driver is loaded correctly....Is It? Are you running vesa 3.0? I can mirror in vesa 2.0 on my 9200, no spanning possible without proper ATI drivers working on my setup.....
  12. Radeon M9 in 600m

    The 9000-9200 AGP cards would support QE if you could get them to load as AGP devices instead of PCI like now!!!!!! AGP to PCI bridge is the problem here....Apple doesn't need to support it, because it's not in the X86 Macs they sell! Now, I tried to load my card as an AGP device, I used to be able to in 10.4.1, but since 10.4.3, I crash my window server each time... P.S. On G3-G5 Macs, 9200 cards do support QE
  13. ATI radeon 9200

    Beware! X1000 laptops use 3 different 16:10 resolution sizes on the 15"4 built in displays..... Mine is 1280x800 with ATI supported in Windows, Ubuntu, etc..... On X86 with vesa 2, the highest res is 1024x768---4:3 nsmith40 has an higher 16:10 resolution than mine, and that's the only reason why he can go to 1280x1024....still 4:3 and still stretched width..... Now, I'm investigating connecting S-Video cable and external VGA display to see If tricking the X86 into higher res on built-in display is possible....I'll let you know..... I'm a long time Mac user and I have a feeling that all older ATI and Nvidia hardware made/sold for PC's would need to be flashed with Mac specific/modified Rom images.....to run properly in X86 It's always been the case before X86, when Mac Gamers or Pro users bought PC versions of ATI cards to save $$$$ because ATI was charging a lot more for Mac versions of the exact same card..... There was a simple procedure out there to flash the cards from Windows rom to Mac rom to be able to use them in Macs..... P.S. Until someone can make the ATI8500 display drivers work in X86, we are out of luck....with our widescreen displays.... BTW, the ATI GPU is not soldered to the motherboard on my X1000....
  14. Buenos dias Cuastermos, Check this out..... http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=10415 This guy got his X700 fully recognized and working, no tearing, etc, etc by adding device ID's in the binary part of the ATI 9700 driver..... Looks like your in luck.....
  15. speed tweaks

    It might be a Processor Speed stepping glitch.... Try to disable it in your Bios settings to see.....
