  1. I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 (via Hazard's 10.6.6i Distribution) I've installed the Legacy Kernel 10.6.6. It claims to support x86_64 on AMD. However, everytime I start it up with the flag 'arch=x86_64', I get a kernel panic. Here's a picture of it: My specs are as follows: - AMD Athlon 64 x4 2.8ghz - Asrock A780GXE/128M (SB700 iirc) - nVidia Geforce 9800gtx+ 512mb - 4gb PC26400 RAM I'm starting to see software that runs only in 64 bit mode. This worries me if I can't get it. Any help would be appreciated. On an unrelated note, if anyone knows how to upgrade to Lion and would be willing to point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

    iPhone Gaming Server

    The server shouldn't need to run Mac OS X, I would expect it to be the most efficient and easiest to make would be to run it on Linux. Additionally, You should really think this out, how the server works, how the players connect keep it in sync etc. That's the best way to develop software for any platform\ Depending on the number of users, you will most likely want a dedicated, but that is completely dependent on how many people would be using it at a time and how efficient you make the client and server connectiivity
  3. I and one other person is in development of this program called Reformer, (aka OSXReformer), its a program that adds and removes packages to any leopard install, it has not been tested on Snow Leopard but I suspect that when it has its first pre-alpha it will work. I hope that people will use this for legal versions of Mac OS X but I cannot stop you. It's programmed in C# and it will work under Mono for Linux and Mac OS X. The Mac OS X version is native version and the other developer is working on that. Although I have not spoke with him for a little while. The website can be found at http://osxreformer.org Please use this program responsibly, but it's only at the first svn release and all it will currently do is list the packages, I will be updating the svn everytime I make a significant change but just check back at the website for updates If you would like to help develop please PM me and if you want to know about release dates and all just check back at the site every once in awhile Also, I did post a tutorial in the wiki on how to customize the Mac OS X Installer, in the wiki which can be found here http://osxreformer.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_manually_add_and_remove_packages_to_the_OS_X_Installer Please note that this program is perfectly legal (from what I understand) because it does contain any Apple copyrighted files, it only patches them to your specification.
  4. I have already tried that but after I did it had a Still Waiting for Root Device... Error but I think that was due to me installing it with AHCI and it said IDE
  5. I recently tried iPC 10.5.6 PPF5 and installed it successfully on my new Asrock 790gxe/128m (AMD 780g Chipset SB700 Southerbridge) and first it failed. Then I used my sisters computer to install and it worked but the booting and loading was very slow. I believe the 9800gtx+ video card drivers or the chipset drivers are the problem. I tried using an alternative and one deleted the boot.plist file and then I used the nvdarwin 512mb and that did not work altogether. I have also tried using the fix by nicholasblocks (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t129235.html) and it has a Still Waiting for Root Device error. I am almost ready to give up on this but if anyone would mind helping me out, much appreciated.
  6. I recently built a new system, heres all the important information and I would like to know if anyone can help me find a working copy of Leopard, and I hope to have SATA DVD working. Specs: Motherboard A780GXE/128M AMD 780g Chipset AMD Atholon 64 x2 6400+ 3.2ghz DDR2 800 EVGA 9800gtx+ (This is not a problem) Ethernet Card: Realtek 8169/8168/8101 (Not Sure which, its copied from the release notes) Integrated Realtek HD Audio Card: R208 is version number, looking around some mor eto find exact model number.

    I'm wondering whether or not my SATA disc drive will work with this, Zephyroth didnt work but Leo4All did but Leo4All Crashed a lot. I believe the nForce 4 SLI AMD (GA-K8N-SLI)'s sata driver is not working properly. My CPU is a AMD Atholon 64 x2 3800+ S939. Also does the 7600gt have the correct drivers and last-time OS X would crash when watching a movie with VLC
