  1. Can't see DVD drive?

    Im having the same problem. The machine isnt recognizing my DVD drive at all, not showing up in System Profiler. My machine is a Lenovo T61, and I have installed iDeneb v.1.3 10.5.5. After a rocky install (Couldnt boot except in Safe Mode..) this is the only problem that I have now that I cant live with. My wired network works, wireless doesnt work at all (Intel 4965agn), video (NVidia NVS 140m) doesn't work all the way, but was at least able to change the resolution.. Looking around the forums some, I see that there are quite a few that seem to be having a problem with iDeneb 1.3 seeing DVD drives.. But I havent seen any fixes.. EDIT: I rebooted the machine off the install DVD, and went into the System Profiler, and it can see the DVD Drive under the ATA Device Tree: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7910A Im trying a re-install right now. Lets see what happens... EDIT #2: After reinstall, I can now mount DVDs. Not sure what changed.. Didnt install any other options..
  2. SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio

    I have an AD1884, can you tell me what the little tqeak was that you did? I have been searching to get this sound working for a while now... Machine is a HP DC7800.
  3. Pwnage for iPhone Released!

    Link not working? ETA: NM, its working now..
  4. LOL. this has to be a joke. And yes, it could have been posted yesterday in preparation for today. Its easy to let all the Mods, and Admins in on it, and they follow along. As for the deletions, kind of interesting that they happened right now. And I know if I was an admin of a forum like this, and I "accidentally" deleted all the topics in a forum, specially Staff forum, I would be working my butt off to put them all back..
  5. My T61 Woes: I got 10.5.1 installed using Kalyways newest ISO. I also have the Intel 4965AGN card, and get nothing. I have a T60 here as well, that has the IBM Lenovo ThinkPad 11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter in it, so I swapped them, added the ID to the list, and still nothing. I have been following this thread: Intel Wireless and will continue to to see if they get the 4965 working under 10.5.* My video doesn't work, I also have the Quadro NVS 140m, and none of the kext's work. I have tried the Natit, Titan, and NVInject. Gunna continue to keep looking... What kind of errors are you getting? I only saw errors when I tried to install using the GUID partition tables. I had to use MBR. I am also using the Vanilla kernel. ben
  6. Intel Wireless driver

    Same issue here. I know on the web page it doesn't say anything about 10.5.* support, but is there work being done on it? I would be more than happy to help test anything that comes out of it. Let me know if you need anything from me... ben
  7. Netowrk Troubles

    Hello all, I was able to install Leo using ToH RC2 DVD, and I got almost everything resolved. I fixed the system Profiler crashing by going here. My About This Mac still crashes, but I can live with that, unless anyone has any suggestions... My main problem right now is my network. My machine has a built-in Intel Pro 1000 and as of now an add on Intel pro 1000. The machine sees both, I can see MAC address's, and it even lights up and access my router, but it will not pull an IP address, and always says Cable Unplugged. I have tried replacing the IONetwokingfamily.kext but that didnt help. Still the same problem. I installed 10.4.10, and it was able to access the network just fine. Anyone else run into this and know how to fix it? I would really like to get this working... Thanks, ben
  8. I am using this DVD as well, and the instalation goes fine, but when I boot, I get a System config file '/com.apple.Boot.plist' not found I can boot off the disk, and go into terminal, or even boot -s and I can browse the drive and see all the stuff there, but it wont boot from it. I have gone through and tried everything I know how to do. Anyone have any suggestions? ben
  9. With Dynamic IP service it could get a little tricky. One way to do it would be to have a machine that everyone can remote into, and then remote to another machine through that one. Wouldn't be the "fastest" way I know, but an easy set up. Another way could be to get a VPN router, and have the users VPN into it, and then they could access any machine they needed to. Not sure if that helped. And I know there are prolly many more ways that it can be done. ben
  10. This was the first thing that came up on Google for me: http://www.neon.com/LSwin.shtml It runs one Windows. It is a little pricey, but might be worth checking out the 30 day trail.
  11. Mines pretty easy. Goes back to gaming days. We are a group of 6 friends all playing the same games, so we put together our last names and came up with DiCroSi (DIer, CROwnover, SImpson) and have used it for everything. House Dicrosi, subbed to Malice on most games (Shadowbane, WoW) Course there are a lot of "friends" that now consider themselves Dicrosi's, but only the six of us are true Dicrosi's. Anyways, thats it.
  12. 10.4.9 update from software update

    I have tried this, and was able to get the update installed, installed the newest kernel witht he script, and replaced the kekt that it says to replace, and now on reboot I get the apple screen with the spinning circle below it. It has been sitting at that screen since yesterday afternoon. Anyone have any suggestions? ben
  13. Completly agree with Vertigo50. There are people out there who do blame M$ for every little problem they have on there machines. I am running Vista at work, and have been now since the very begining, and sure, there have been problems, and there still are. It takes a while for other companies to come up to speed when a new OS comes out. As for all the little things I have heard people complain about Vista, a lot of the things can be *turned off* with a simple Google search. I am not a "M$ is the best, all others suck" kind of guy, but I also dont blame M$ for all the problems I might have with my machines. It was my choice to buy and use Windows, and I knew going into it that it was a much wide used OS, and of course with anything like that, there will be people out there who want to make others miserable. Anyways, my ben
  14. Ok, so everyone forget my last topic. I now have a Dell Precision 370, which has a NVidia Quadro FX1400 PCIe video card, with Dual DVI. Windows says that the VEN ID: 10DE and Dev: 00CE I have OS X 10.4.8 installed, using the JaS 10.4.8 AMD Intel SSE2 SSE3. uname -a says: Darwin computer-name.local 8.8.1 Darwin Kernel Version 8.8.1 Dec 9 22:18:27 AZOT 2006; semthex:/nebukadnezar/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386 i386 i386 Updated to the newest semthex kernel (SF9 Jan 10) and it was working fine. Try to install any NVidia Drivers, I get the screen that says "You need to restart your computer..." Thats any NVidia driver. I have been struggling with this for the past 4 days, and now have done hundreds of OS X reinstalls. Is there anyone out there that has had similar problems? I would love any help that anyone can give me! Thanks, ben
  15. NVidia Quadro FX500/600

    Ok, so Never mind my last post. I was able to hook a CRT monitor up to the machine, and found that I was actually sitting in the "You need to restart your machine. Please press and hold the power button.. Blah blah.." So, I went a head and re-installed, and eventually found out that I didnt have the "newest" kernel installed, so I went ahead and used the auto-installer from here: semthex Kernel Installer I then went and followed the link that macgirl posted here, and installed the Natit kext from there, and once again, got the "You must reboot your machine.. blah blah.." What an I doing wrong? I would really like to get this machine up and running. Is it a problem with the FX1400 card not supported? Thanks for all the help. ben
