  1. Hello I have a Apple airport extreme base station and Im able to control it using my MBP but from my hackintosh 10.5.2 even though I can see it in vista... Im using kalyway 10.5.1 and updated to 10.5.2. I just got the router so I dont know if the error was introduced in 10.5.2 or not. Any ideas?
  2. Hi, I just purchased a d-link dbt-122 bluetooth USB dongle and I wanted to pair it with my Sony Ericsson K810i, however when I try to pair I get to the point where you type a passcode on the phone and then leopard retrieves more information about the device..this is the part where i get the spinning ball and I cant get any further....In the Bluetooth preferences it displays my cell phone as paired even though the wizard hasnt finished...Nor can I use it. I want to use the dbt-122 with an apple wireless keyboard... I know the best BT dongle is the dbt-120 but it is so more expensive here. Ive tried the following: Restarted the phone Switching to a different USB port Pairing initiated from the phone. Running the bluetooth firmware updater from apple - said no supported device found. If I can get it working with the apple wireless keyboard then Ill be happy... Any ideas please? thanks for your help in advance.. UPDATE: Its compatible with mac according to dlink: http://www.dlink.co.uk/?go=jN7uAYLx/oIJaWV...s7n36biJkoRs+nQ
  3. 10.5.2 8800GT poor performance

    OMG!! that worked thanks! Now I gotta ask...why!?
  4. Hiya xbench results: Results: 165.79 CPU Test: 186 Thread Test: 288 Memory Test: 220 Quartz Graphics Test: 298 OpenGL Graphics Test: 201 User Interface Test: 497 Disk Test: 54 Specs: Q6600 @ 3Ghz 2GB memory 8800GT Used the apple leopard graphics update and then the 10.5.2 Nvidia installer with the 10.5.2 kexts, still slow. I know the disk has poor performance, but I dont see how it should affect the overall graphics in leopard...E.g. when I play a video in one window its laggy in another.. The thing is those numbers in xbench doesnt mean anything as the UI is really laggy...totally unacceptable as its a cutting edge graphics card :-( This is really fustrating, I so hope you can help
  5. apple keyboard

    I need to change my vote from considering to Yes, I just ordered one :-)
  6. Kalyway 10.5.2 Question

    I also have a 8800GT and even though I useed the graphics update I still had to use the NVinstaller in order to get it fully working..
  7. apple keyboard

    Im so sick of my steel series keyboard when I use leopard, especially since Im use to the international MBP keyboard... So Im strongly considering getting a real apple keyboard...What about you guys?
  8. Cyclone. I havent tried that but I didnt think I should have to considering that its a 8800GT, and my MBP is using a slower graphics card....
  9. I cant help wondering..... How can it work perfectly if you have 2 problems? Im confused
  10. I have my res set to 1620x1080 and millions of colors, but the quicksilver window when it closes still looks laggy..... Im using 10.5.2 + NVidiaInject + nvidia 10.5.2 kexts...
  11. Cycronefr well first when I open an application using quicksilver I can see the its not shutting down the quicksilver window smoothly...
  12. Hello, I just reinstalled leopard and I need to get rid of the uglyness of kalyway, I remember using a utility(not virginizer) that would remove the orange background and the toolbars etc. Can anyone give me a link to this tool? Ive searched and searched without luck
  13. Hello, After having installed 10.5.2 and the leopard graphics update, I thought I would be able to use my Nvidia 8800 GT perfectly. In 10.5.1 it had glitches....... Should I use the nvidia installer again? Help please.
  14. 10.5.2(kalyway combo) and 8800GT

    Hiya, Yes Ive already used that and with that Im experiencing the glitches....thats one of the reason I want to update to 10.5.2, to get rid of the glitches.
  15. Hello, Im currently using 10.5.1 kallyway with GT8800. I have visual glitches once a while when I drag windows around so I wonder....How should I update leopard to 10.5.2(kalyway combo update) in order to fix these glitches?
