    iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 Released!

    ~David,,,,,,I had the same problem on my 1st (2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.) install of iDeneb 10.5.5. After a little digging (and a lot of reading in the forum), I tried a suggestion from another member----try clicking on the "ICHX" fix on your next install attempt. When I first tried the install, I was getting the "Do not enter" sign and no matter what I tried, it would not go away and let my machine boot. Three or four install attempts later, I finally clicked on the "ICHX" fix and (wonder of wonders) was fully up and running a short time later. No panics, no crashes--it was great. I did a few kext tweaks to get wired ethernet and my P/S 2 stuff working again, but it has given me no trouble ever since. Hope this helps.
  3. I have been waiting for this kext for quite a while. Installed it on an Intel DG965-WH motherboard and didn't even get to close the "KextHelper" interface window before I was notified that a new ethernet connection had been detected. A simple matter of disconnecting my USB wireless (Linksys) device and selecting the "new" connection got me up and running. I didn't have to tamper with any scripts---I just installed the kext and the wired ethernet started working!! I am using Kalyway (10.5.5), recently updated from a 10.5.1 install (yes, I did update to 10.5.2, 10.5.3 qnd 10.5.4 when those updates were released).
  4. Ditto,,,,tried your method after finding QE was inoperable. All is good (DVD/VLC both work) in the "Hack" world once more.
  5. Same exact symptoms,,,a little more than a full three minute boot time. Installed the kalyway_10.5.2_kernels.mpkg and boot time is back to normal,,, less than one minute.

    Multi-boot with Grub

    For anyone who has been contemplating installing MacOS on a new drive, but are unsure how to get the whole ball of wax playing nice, here is how we got it to work: We have an Intel DG965WH. This is a SATA native motherboard. We already had it installed with Windows XP and 64bit Ubuntu using grub as the bootloader. Since we were perfectly happy with that install, we bought a new SATA drive for the MacOS installation (WD GP500). We disconnected the old drive for the install so there would be no confusion by the bios. Set the bios to AHCI and installed clean. (Note: The Intel 10/100/1000 does not work, and the sound still requires some tweaking.) Just as a test, we changed the motherboard back to IDE. This motherboard does some strange delays with AHCI, so IDE boot is considerably faster. Not only that, but XP will not run with AHCI. Voila! the MacOS drive booted without a problem. So we installed the primary harddrive back where it belonged and tweaked GRUB to play nice with everyone in the same sandbox as follows: - Boot into Ubuntu (if you are running a different flavor of Linux, the commands may be different) - Open a Terminal - type in: sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst - enter your password # Ubuntu (or whatever other flavor of Linux you prefer) - Leave default as Linux will update this as needed title Linux root (hd0,1) kernel (Let Linux/grub put this in!) initrd (see above about letting Linux control this) quiet #Mac OS X - assuming it is on hard drive 2 title Mac OS X root (hd1,0) makeactive chainloader +1 #Windows XP or Vista partition title Windows (Flavor-du-jour) root (hd0,0) savedefault makeactive chainloader +1 #End of listing Save and reboot. Note: You MUST keep your Windows/Mac listings AFTER any "AUTOMAGIC KERNEL LIST" comment line - otherwise GRUB will overwrite your changes the next time you update your Linux kernel (or you will learn the hard way like I did).
