  1. I have (only) one problem with my install: I cannot get rid of the Spotiify index freeze. sudo mdutil -a -i off Saves me, but... I have rebuilt cache in single user mode, repaired permissions on my system partition... Come to think of it, it may be my other Leopard install that {censored} things up. Will try to repair that one, too. Open to suggestions.
  2. I did some pages back: Made a "custom nvidia efi string" in osx86 tools. There is apparently a similar feature in DD's script. Works great.
  3. OK, I fixed those two, so now everything (that I have tested) is working great. 1. Moved realtek kext from System to Extra from DD's script. Suspect it was the rebuild of cache that solved it, but not sure... 2. Made a custom nvidia EFI through osx86tools for my 9600GT. Works great...
  4. Thanks for a great script/tutorial... I followed it. Worked great with my ga-ex58-ud3r. Two hickups (at least) to go: 1. On board ehternet is not working (works fine in both Kalyway (on another disk) and iAtkos v7... and on Windows 7 where I'm typing now. 2. Get a working driver/setting for my Geforce 9600GT. But I see a light in the tunnel now. Thanks.
  5. Thanks. Yes, I have the money - the reason I considered the quad-setup was the many streamlined guides for those here. But I guess - if I can get a stable Ubuntu boot on one disk, I can live with having to do some work getting OSX up and running on a second one. I will have a look at the HD4850 (and some other hardware) before I order, but I'm no gamer - and I have had great experience with Nvidia cards on Linux.
  6. OK, so I have followed this thread closely, so I do feel the hardware below should be Hackintosh safe. Both setups are maybe a bit overkill for my needs, but I have the money and I am a tech-geek so... I'm think about going for the i7-setup. Quad-setup: Antec NSK4480 Asus EN9600GT SILENT/HTDI/512M Corsair TWIN2X DDR2-800 4096MB KIT (2x2048) Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 Samsung SH-S223Q SATA DVD Samsung Spinpoint F1 1 TB SATA i7-setup: Antec Sonata III Asus EN9600GT SILENT/HTDI/512M Cooler Master V8 507,- Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R Intel Core i7 920 OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Platinum 6 GB (3 x 2 GB) Samsung SH-S223Q SATA DVD Samsung Spinpoint F1 1 TB SATA A couple questions (apart from comments on the above): 1. The disk is thrown in by random here. I'm gonna check a little more, but: I'm gonna dual boot Leopard + Ubuntu. Would the best to have two separate disks + maybe one common data storage? 2. I have read about some network troubles with the on board LAN. Is a separate network controller recommended? All feedback appreciated! Thanks! (this is a great forum). Erik
  7. I installed Kalyway 10.5.2 on my HP dv2000 series. Smooth installation (some minor problems), no Wifi (unsupported card), sound only through speakers, but the main problem is the computer is overheating after a while. I installed the default kernel. What kernel do you recommend?
