  1. iPhone not recognized in iTunes after 10.6.4 upgrade

    Well, I also have the iPhone SDK (Xcode) installed on my system, so maybe that's the reason I got and "iPhone SDK update" in Software Update. Check your system.log and try to match your issue with other similar issues on the net (there have been other iphone/ipod-not-recognized problems reported). Also, you need to have 10.6.4 installed.
  2. Hello everybody, after upgrading to 10.6.4 (P35-DS3L mobo with Intel C2D cpu) my iPhone 2G doesn't show up in iTunes (9.2.1) anymore. I tried every single usb port on my tower, but with no success. If I tail the system.log at the moment I connect my iPhone on the dock, I get the following log messages: Aug 22 12:08:05 alex-dis-p35-ds3l usbmuxd[39]: _connect_to_port (thread 0xb0114000): Could not connect to USB mux port 32498 for device 5: Connection refused Aug 22 12:08:05 alex-dis-p35-ds3l usbmuxd[39]: _MobileDeviceConnect_locked (thread 0xb0114000): Could not connect to lockdown port on device 2bf99d9d7b03f4bae83dd9d8fd0978cb8d2ec86c.

Thanks! === UPDATE === Problem solved. There's a software update by Apple concerning this bug (iPhone SDK something...). I downloaded it and fixed the issue.
  3. Kernel panic

    Hi all, I recently managed to install iDeneb 10.5.8 on my old Acer Aspire 1640 (Intel Pentium M 1.7GHz, 1GB RAM, IDE hard drive, 815GM chipset with GMA900 shared memory graphics, you can see my progress here) and I started using it in order to bring up any issues still left. I've been using it for almost 6-7 hours (overall during the last 2 days) and I've already had 3 kernel panics. Here are the corresponding screens (for 2 out of 3 panics): The third kernel panic (of which I didn't get a screenshot) is of the same nature (kernel_task breaks because a memory address of type 0x00000000 is found on some process stack(??) ). All three of them have this same pattern, a kernel trap at some existing address which probably points to a non existing address (as far as I can guess, maybe I'm wrong). The first thing I suspected is some memory leak, and since I can't check the code itself for memory leaks I though of checking the state of my ram module. So, I run memtest from an Ubuntu live cd and nothing wrong came up. So now I'm asking for your help/opinions in what could be wrong with this kernel panics (apart from the obvious of hanging the system ). Thanks in advance.
  4. Ok, latest update: I have now a working installation of Leopard on Aspire 1640, with all the basics working (they seem to be working fine, given the fact that my laptop is quite old and has only 1GB of RAM). My biggest concern right now is getting the wireless card working. It's current state is dead, and it's essential for me to find a driver (kext) appropriate for this device, as I was planning to use this laptop on a spot with no physical network connection. Anybody with any good ideas? A second issue is a general feeling/suspicion I have about degraded performance. What I mean is that it takes quite some time for the OS to load after booting up, and when I click an application icon from the dock, the bouncing seem to have a slight lag and I get some disk activity simoultaneously. Also, youtube videos on 480p are somehow laggy too, even though the video progress bar is fully loaded (thus, it's not a network performance issue, it generally laptop performance). All these could have as a root cause the small amount of available ram (1gb, which is no that sufficient), which causes the hard drive to swap all the time. But again, if there's any known compatibility (or other) issue related to my symptoms, please let me know. Thanks in advance for any answers I get.
  5. Actually I loaded Intel GMA900 drivers from installation, and the boot/welcoming screen works fine now. Next problem: keyboard and mouse are not recognized. I'll get on that when I come back from the office.
  6. Thanks for the reply. Current state: I'm past the boot drive problems, after having experimented with various ata drivers provided by iDeneb installation. I also encoutered a PS2Controller problem (ApplePS2Controller duplicate) which was resolved by deleting the corresponding kext (I suppose it conflicted somehow with VoodooPS2 driver). Now the problem is that I'm stuck just before the login window appears, and the screen has the light blue color we see 1-2 secs before getting a login prompt. Disk activity stops there, and the laptop doesn't seem to do anything, no matter how long I wait. Here's a photo of what I'm talking about: I've corrected partition permissions, but that didn't have any effect on the problem.
  7. Hi all. I'm diggin this thread up, because I'm having the same problem while trying to install Leopard (iDeneb 1.6 lite) on an Acer Aspire 1640 (Pentium M 1.7GHz, 1gb ram, ide hard drive, intel gma950 graphics). Installation completes just fine, all recommended patches (from wiki) for this laptop have been selected/installed, chameleon works fine, but when Leopard bootsup it's stuck on the screen below. I suppose it hard drive related issue, but Acer bios (Phoenix) doesn't give me any options about customizing the device (it's a very poor bios software, as far as changing options and configuration is concerned). Anyone could give me some advice about what could be a workaround in this case?
  8. Hang at "/usr/sbin/ocspd[39]: starting"

    Yeah, but my problem appears on the first boot after a clean install. It's not a software conflict issue.
  9. Sorry for being impatient but... anyone?
  10. The Kalyway DVD doesn't even boot for me! My hardware specs are: Mobo GB P35-DS3L Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66GHz Graphics Gainward Bliss 8400GS 256MB H/D Western Digital 200GB SATA DVD-RW Samsung SH-S203 I made all BIOS settings as decribed in the first post, and then boot from the Kalyway dvd (which I've burned numerous times, but never got it to boot) but installation never boots. I press any key when it's asked, but it hangs there forever. I suspect something's wrong with my dvd-rw/hard disk devices, but then the BrazilMac leopard dvd boots normally and installs succesfully (although that doesn't work either for other reasons)... Can anyone give me a helping hand? p.s.: one weird thing I've noticed, concerning the hard drive, is that the installation process of BrazilMac recognizes it only as 128GB, even though I've formated it several times as Mac OS Extended...
  11. Hang at "/usr/sbin/ocspd[39]: starting"

    Hi everyone, I'm having the same problem. Leopard boots and then crashes at some point during the boot. I run verbose mode, and the last line before the crash is: localhost /usr/sbin/ocspd[61]: starting. Before that, the boot procedure used to crash with the last line being: /System/Library/CoreServices/LoginWindow.app/Contents/MacOS/LoginWindow[23]: Login Window Application Started, but I changed some BIOS settings and it doesn't crash at that point anymore. I've also noticed a line saying display: family specific matching fails. I've installed the BrazilMac patched Leopard, and applied bootfix patch in order to make Leopard to boot. My PC has an Intel E8200, GB P35-DS3L, 2GB RAM and Gainward 8400gs 256MB. Any idea what's going on and how can I fix it? Thx in advance.
