  1. Radeon R9 270X framebuffer issue

    Okay, i've got two displays connected now but i keep getting these annoying flashes on one of the displays so something is still not right. Any ideas what this might be ? **EDIT** I'm also noticing hickups/freezes in the graphics. These are moments when the system just freezes for just a second or two. **EDIT 2 ** Fixed the hickups by using GraphicsEnabler=Yes in Chameleon v2.2svn r2377. Now the card is deteced as AMD Radeon HD 7xxx though. For now a working solution without hickups for me. 2nd screen is still buggy but will keep trying to fix this.
  2. Radeon R9 270X framebuffer issue

    Hi Vlada, Thanks for your awesome contributions! I've installed the pkg as well but unfortunately i'm still getting a white screen after the gui launched. I'm using Mountain Lion 10.8.5 and i've installed all the fixes in your pack. Any idea how i would go about debugging this ?

  4. Snow Leopard on Hardware Raid Set (bootable)

    This raidcard and kext work under OS Lion 10.7 as well
  5. 10.6.8 officially released

    For those with a AD1988B soundchip (like me) download the following AppleHDA.kext to fix your dead sound after upgrading to 10.6.8. http://www.kexts.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=1394 - Make sure your DSDT.AML matches the one that the uploader describes. - unzip the kext and rename the directory to .kext - delete /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext - copy downloaded kext to /System/Library/Extensions cp -R AppleHDA.kext /System/Library/Extensions - mod the kext to the correct values chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext reboot and boot with -f to force a kextflush Cheers, Maxi
  6. Snow Leopard on Hardware Raid Set (bootable)

    I can confirm as well that this works very nicely, although the url provided in the original post does not work anymore. You can get the driver at the following location: http://kb.lsi.com/KnowledgebaseArticle15173.aspx I'm currently working from a bootable raidset on a 9560SE4LPML for which i've used the following install method: - downloaded v2.2.3 kext via above url - installed kext into chameleon extensions dir and to \System\Library\Extensions\ (installed SL from running SL installation) i'm getting around 230MB/s writes on my raidset which is nice Cheers, Maxi

  8. SATA Dvd drive spins up randomly?

    I have the same thing issue. my specs are as follows: Maximus Formula X38 Intel Q9450 4GB Ram 8800GTS 312MB DDR
  9. Snow Leopard on Hardware Raid Set (bootable)

    Does this mean that the card is bootable in SL using the 64bit kext ? Can someone share their experience (performance wise) in using these cards? Maxi
  10. Thanks for the guide Dismounted, works like a charm. Also stumbled on formatting the EFI partition but managed to get it working eventually.
  11. 10.5.7 Released

    Updated straight from 10.5.5 Vanilla : - backed up kexts and used netkas script for removing AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementDisabler.kext and replaced line in InstallAtStartup file with the dsmos.kext line - patched installation with 10.5.7 patcher (Apple Yukon NIC Support was gone and got some errors on USBEHCI and JMicron kext) - patched AppleHDA - not using DSDT only thing that is wrong is that it cannot identify my cpu (Q9450), any suggestions anyone ?

  12. Leopard = Vista?

    Exactly maxi out
  13. Leopard Finalized?

    great, only 16 more days of hibernation in front of the apple store where i'm already sleeping still its worth it!
  14. Leopard = Vista?

    Vista was, as described by one of the forummembers a complete rewrite of the Windows OS, they just released it too soon and therefore couldnt implement the promised functionalities that had to compete with OSX (winfs and others) Only the core of the system was rewritten and some stolen eyecandy was added. They didnt finish what they started = "damn we want to have an os as good and beautiful as Apple". Apple on the other hand updated OSX in increments and Leopard isnt a rewrite of the OS, its just a needed bigger update with more functionalities and beatiful creative eyecandy. The core has remained the same. So i dont think apple is making the same mistake as MS (if you didnt catch that in my little scrap above) cheers! maxi
