  1. New Nvidia Retail Driver Install Solution

    After installing the driver for the 560 TI (which isn't supported according to http://www.nvidia.com/object/macosx-313.01.01f03-driver.html), turning it on from system prefs doesn't stick after a reboot. Though turning it on and then running LuxMark resulted in a lock up (confirmed kexts were loaded via 3rd party system info app).
  2. Gigabyte GeForce 8400GS and Lion

  4. GraphicsEnabler issues

    Check out my post here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...&start=120#
  5. I fixed this by installing "NvEnabler 64.kext" found here. I also added these lines in com.apple.Boot.plist: <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string></string> In addition, I added the EFI string (found it using EFIstudio) (<string>EFI hex code</string>) for my card underneath <key>device-properties</key> in com.apple.Boot.plist. This should work with all 8 and 9 series Nvidia cards, hope it helps!
  6. Great guide! Worked almost perfectly for me: I have a 8800GT (G92) card with two 22" monitors connected, and only one of my monitors is working. The one that is working however is at full resolution and accelerated. I tried using my EFI string from my 10.6 install (removed <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>), but it didn't work - do I need to remove the <string>y</string> after it? Edit: wouldn't let me attach my boot.plist ;/ Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Excellent, thanks .. will try this when I get home.
  8. released Update to 10.6.4

    I'm getting intermittent KP's on a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R, Q8300, 4gb ddr2 800 after 10.6.4 update via software update. I'm using the latest SleepEnabler.kext. The KP's aren't specific to anyone application or service .. I've gotten KP'd on Google Chrome, Dock, WindowsServer among others. I can't seem to stay running for more than 30 minutes. Should I reinstall the 10.6.3 v1.1 combo update to revert back or use the 10.6 DVD to restore and then try 10.6.4 combo update? PS. This occurs on both 32 and 64 bit mode.
  9. How best to update 10.6.2 --> 10.6.4?

    Most issues with kernel panic's when updating OSX can be attributed to SleepEnabler.kext. Usually if you have a working system prior to updating, all you need to do is swap the SleepEnabler.kext to a version that's known to work. Back up your install first .. either use Time Machine (if it works), or SuperDuper (3rd party tool, not free), of course you need a 2nd HD for this. See http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=196466 for a updated SleepEnabler.kext Download 10.6.4 Combo Update via http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1048
  10. <string>pmVersion=20</string> I thought was automatically set with the new SleepEnabler.kext for 10.6.4? I can give it a shot though. Strange thing is that even 'real' mac users are having the same issues I am, and most of them recommended restoring to 10.6 from the dvd and then doing the 10.6.4 combo update, or just installing the 10.6.3 v1.1 combo update to downgrade. Any idea what would happen if I restored my install from the retail DVD and then did combo update? Would I have to reinstall chameleon etc, or would that remain intact?
  11. Hi, I'm running 10.6.3 successfully without hitches whatsoever on a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R MB, Q8300 cpu, and 4gb of ddr2 800 ram. I upgraded last night via software update to 10.6.4, also upgraded SleepEnabler.kext to the latest. My system boots normally and the system feels stable, but randomly kernel panics on what it seems like random programs .. it's not specific to one thing at all. So, I turned off spotlight, tried running in -x32 and -x64 mode(normally I boot without flags, so I assume the system boots to 64 mode by default.), I also tried repairing permissions with Kext Tool. Could it be a power management issue? I don't think my AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement ever loaded correctly, but my system never overheated or got hotter than like 45 degrees, so I didn't bother messing with it. I also have onboard ALC889A, which I disabled from bios .. mostly because I don't use it. Should I try to install to 10.6.4 via combo update, or hell even downgrade back to 10.6.3 via combo update? Thanks
  12. Could someone repost the "SL Pack V4" (http://uppit.com/v/0JKOP6PN), the link appears to have stopped working. Thanks!
  13. Hi, If you don't mind, could you post this 'dumpacapi script' you found along with Koala's ACPI patcher? I'm having severe issues trying to get my 8800gt 512mb card to work with the EFI string .. locks up everytime during boot, boots fine without the string .. but no video. I may have a solution to your problem, as I have ran into this myself. The info below is NOT my own, but rather information that has been passed down to me. Add “<key>OSBundleRequired</key> <string>Network-Root</string>” just before the final “</dict>” in /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions/YourKext.kext/Contents/Info.plist Also make sure that your permissions are set correctly and that you made the Extensions cache properly. After you have changed that line in the info.plist files in the kext you need to load, repair your permissions and ownership to be on the safe side with: chmod -R 755 * (run in /Volumes/EFI/Extra) and chown -R root:wheel * (run in /Volumes/EFI/Extra) Then create a new mkext cache with: kextcache -t -l -n -a i386 -m Extensions.mkext Extensions (run in /Volumes/EFI/Extra) reboot
  14. This is as far as I've ever gotten with an OSX install; Installs from CD, boots from hard disc and my video works. I'm using the latest release of iPC 10.5.6. Setup: Motherboard: Foxconn C51 AM2 nforce 590 SLI (same model as the BFG Tech, eVGA, XFX and Nvidia reference nforce 590 SLI). Audio: ALC882 Ethernet: Nvidia nForce 10/100/1000 Ethernet (0x037310de) Video: 8800GT 512mb Ram: 4gb OSZ ddr2 800 ISSUES: #1 USB does not work at all. I've had to disable USB keyboard/mouse support in bios and use a PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse to install. When I re-enable USB mouse/keyboard support and attempt to boot into OSX, the initial boot sequence appears normal (watching with -v), and then when it goes into graphical mode, I'm stuck at a black screen and nothing further happens (forced to hard reset). The OSX desktop loads normally when i have usb mouse/keyboard support disabled. Also an important thing to note is that in the "About this Mac" > "More Info" USB section, my USB BUS and USB Hi-Speed Controller is found, but nothing works when I plug something into it. #2 Sata does not work. I have a Sata DVD drive and two HD's. Another odd thing here is that the devices are actually found during boot up, and the controllers are listed in "about this mac" but the actual devices are not. I have formatted one of my two sata HD's with a mac patition. #3 Ethernet does not work. I have tried loading Nforce LAN and Nforce Ethernet drivers, and the really weird thing about these is that when I load one solo (ether or) with the other not installed, my device is found but it continuously shows as 'network cable unplugged'. If I load both of these drivers at the same time, the device is found and is ACTIVE but I'm given a self-assigned IP address, and when I attempt to configure the device manually it does not work even though it says it's connected. #4 Audio does not work. Even though I've installed the appropriate drivers for my audio device it just doesn't load at all. The only thing to note I suppose is that my video card does in fact work (8800GT 512mb). I also have tried manually editing several Info.plist files and adding device id's to the files that were related to the non-functioning devices. This didn't do anything. It seems that my current hardware configuration is just hopeless, but I thought I'd post anyway to see what kind of things you guys might say. Thanks in advanced!
  15. Hi, I recently acquired the newest release of iPC, and I needed to replace the Extensions.mkext with another that I modified specifically for my build (added additional support for USB because my motherboard is weird). Now when I replace the Extensions.mkext (using transmac), the checksum of the iso changes which seemed to upset the entire image. When I boot the new image, the new kext files I added to the Extensions.mkext load perfectly, but shortly after the root device is found, I'm spammed with SAMS READ WRITE errors followed by a kernel panic. I'm certain that the kext files I added to the Extensions.mkext are not causing a read write issue, but the build in it's entirety I think is. I followed the instructions on how to insert kext files to the Extensions.mkext from a forum post on these forums, and did so using my macbook. So, with that all being said.. I think the next step would be to completely repackage/rebuild the HFS+ iso image and burn it to a disc. My problem is that I have no idea how and what to use to accomplish this task. Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks
