  1. TBH, I've been a bit out of the loop on all this and don't quite understand what DSDT is all about. I tried the method here but it bricked my install (had a full HDD image backup, just in case!) so I gave the trusty old method which saw me through the last few updates a try and voila! Only problem is the whole 4GHz thing... I can't get OSX86Tools to change it back to 3GHz!
  2. I'm running on a Gigabyte P35 DS3-R and just did an update from 10.5.5 (up from Kalyway 10.5.2 w/ vanilla kernel & PC-EFI v9) to 10.5.6 using the delta update package and "while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done" No need for anything else - everything still works!
  3. No Network After Waking Up!

    I've written a small script and made it executable. #!/bin/bash echo "password" | sudo -S ipconfig set en0 BOOTP sudo ipconfig set en0 DHCP This corrects the issue by changing the NIC to use BOOTP then back to DHCP. This results in an instant connection. My next task is to get this to run on wake, so I installed SleepWatcher. However, the daemon does not load on boot up, and attempting to run it manually results in: The file /Library/StartupItems/SleepWatcher/SleepWatcher reads: #!/bin/sh # # sleep watcher start script # # 17.11.2002 bb created # 24.12.2002 bb moved sleepwatcher to /usr/local/sbin # 01.01.2003 bb added support for Mac OS X 10.1 and earlier # 07.05.2003 bb added "return 0" to the functions (otherwise, # SystemStarter syslogs a failure of the startup item) # 05.05.2005 bb call sleepwatcher 2.0 with options -d -V # # The Run/Restart/Start/StopService routines appeared in /etc/rc.common with # Mac OS X 10.2. For earlier systems, we define our own RunService routine. RunService () { ConsoleMessage "Starting Sleep Watcher" /usr/local/sbin/sleepwatcher -d -V -s /etc/rc.sleep -w /etc/rc.wakeup /etc/rc.wakeup return 0 } . /etc/rc.common StartService () { ConsoleMessage "Starting Sleep Watcher" /usr/local/sbin/sleepwatcher -d -V -s /etc/rc.sleep -w /etc/rc.wakeup /etc/rc.wakeup return 0 } StopService () { ConsoleMessage "Stopping Sleep Watcher" killall sleepwatcher /etc/rc.sleep return 0 } RestartService () { StopService StartService } RunService "$1" With RunService "$1" being line 47. I am unsure as to what to do next. Any advice?
  4. No Network After Waking Up!

    All I get returned is "ifconfig: interface up does not exist"
  5. I'm running Kalyway 10.5.2 updated to 10.5.4 on a Gigabyte P35-DS3R with onboard Realtek 8169 LAN. Everything works fine until the machine goes to sleep. As soon as it wakes up the IP address (assigned by DHCP using MAC filtering) is lost. In order to restore the connection I have to set the NIC to configure manually, enter an IP (doesn't matter what it is), hit apply, then change it back to DHCP before the IP is restored. Is there a fix for this, or even a simple script which can be set to run automatically on wake?
  6. I finally decided to nuke my sluggish XP install and try something new, so I now have a HDD with Ubuntu 8.04, XP SP3, and Leopard 10.5.2 installed and functioning seperatley. Here's the problem, GRUB won't boot XP or Leopard. ATM, I am running Ubuntu but ideally want to play more with Leopard and XP is needed for some apps still. My HDD is partitioned as so: And KGRUBEditor shows: Finally, menu.lst: default 0 fallback 1 timeout 3 title Windows XP root (hd0,1) savedefault makeactive title Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-18-generic root (hd0,0) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-18-generic root=UUID=17020cc9-5ec6-4460-9af0-7947be79d56f ro quiet splash initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-18-generic title MacOS X Leopard root (hd0,2) The options all show in GRUB, but XP and OSX do nothing. Any ideas? I'm no expert on this.
  7. Only Smart People Read This Please...

    That list still means nothing. What kind of CPU? What type of RAM? Which interface? And more importantly, what motherboard?
  8. Flashing Blue Screen

    Bump, still need a solution for this
  9. Flashing Blue Screen

    I used to have my 7600gs (512MB - ROM Flashed-, PCI-E) running perfectly, but without QE and only software CI. I used the "Nvidia_Installer_V1.9_by_Punk92" package. Now that I've installed iLife, I need QE to run iMovie so I used this guide to get it working. QE and CI now work, but the screen continually flashes blue, making it impossible to use. I experienced this with another driver before trying the above mentioned package, but I cannot recall which it was. Is there a way to rectify this and keep QE? Thanks.
