  1. I've just started using the RealtekR1000SL.kext from this thread to enable Zeroconf networking - which works pretty well - but since I've installed it, my hard drives now appear as native internal rather than hotplug sata... Not sure if this is a hard fix implemented in the Realtek kext, or a happy coincidence in conjunction with the DSDT. Even without the Realtek kext, every now and again during heavy disk access, the icon would flicker between the orange hotplug icon and the silver internal drive icon, indicating to me that on at least some level the drive was presenting to the OS as internal...
  2. Thanks for the input. I have made the correction and updated - although it doesn't seem to have made any huge change!
  3. dsdt_rev2.zip Thanks for that STLVNUB! I had seen a number of other posts that stated AppleLPC was needed for native speedstepping, but after implementing stickpin's DSDT I seemed to be getting reduced core temps at idle (well, reduced in comparison to my original DSDT) and sleep was working even without having the 'Start up automatically after a power failure' option in the energy pane of System Prefs. I have now added your suggested method to LPCB and AppleLPC.kext now loads at boot and my CPU core temps have reduced again, idling around 40 - 45 degrees... which is nice! So thanks again! Don't suppose you have any bright ideas in terms of fixing the shutdown issue do you @mac_nobbi - My current DSDT including STLVNUB's fix is attached here: 2nd Revision with mac_nobbi's dual core update: dsdt_rev2.zip dsdt.zip
  4. Interesting - I've done some testing and have had some interesting results. I am using the kexts mentioned in the first post: fakesmc.kext OSXRestart.kext GigabyteEP45-UD3LR.kext Booted from the EFI partition using the usual combo of Cham2RC3 and PC EFI 10.5. 90% of the time, shutdown works just fine and the computer powers down completely. The only time I encountered any trouble was when I booted into 10.6.2 and then immediately tried to shut the machine down. On two occasions this resulted in partial shutdown, with fans still spinning etc - but for the most part it seems to work quite well for me...
  5. Quality work here stickpin - thanks. I removed the GFX section, as I like to use PC_EFI for dynamic injection of the GFX strings - and altered the processor stepping specification to match my E8400 Core2 Duo and it works almost perfectly. I have sleep shutdown, and restart (with OSXRestart.kext)... so I'm wondering why restart was removed from your list of working features? Once again - thanks for the research!

    Support for NTFS in 10.6.2 absent?

    You can also enable support by doing the following: "First, uninstall NTFS-3G. Open Terminal and type "diskutil info /Volumes/NTFS_volume_name" and copy the Volume UUID Backup /etc/fstab if it currently exists - it shouldn't be there in a default install. Type "sudo nano /etc/fstab". Type in "UUID=paste_the_Volume_uuid_here none ntfs rw" or "LABEL=volume_name none ntfs rw" (if you don't have UUID for the disk). Repeat for other NTFS partitions." Save the file (ctrl-x then y) and restart your system.

    PC EFI 10.1 Installation Package

    I've used this installer a few times in my Snow Leo experiments, and it has saved me a lot of time and terminal wrangling - Good work Dr Hurt!
  8. Congratulations! Try the benchmarking utility here which should identify whether or not OSX can see your 260 as an OpenCL device. If it does, then I'd assume it's working!
  9. Try using OSX86 tools. I was able to make a device string for my GTX 285 which solved this problem for me...

    Google announces an Operating System!

    I just think they have a hell of a cheek calling it an OS. I'm guessing their 'Windowing System' will basically be Chrome running on the desktop as opposed to a browser window, meaning your entire session is entirely dependent on a rock solid connection from your ISP. No network connection and your ChromeOS netbook is pretty much totally useless

    Google announces an Operating System!

    Hang on - how in the hell can this even be described as an operating system? It's not! The Linux kernel will be doing all the heavy lifting, and even that is only running the Chrome browser and managing a few device drivers. It's certainly not a new 'Operating System'. In fact, I'd argue it's just a Linux distro - and a limited one at that.

    Many thanks for the rapid response there kizwan - much appreciated...

    [HOW TO] Patch AppleHDA - Knowledge Base

    Does anyone still have a link to that version of the file? And how come THe KiNG decided to scrap the guide?

    Audio on EP45-UD3LR

    The problem with that pack is that the AppleHDA.kext is a patched version of 1.5.7, which is kind of old OS X 10.5.5 - AppleHDA.kext v1.5.7 OS X 10.5.6 - AppleHDA.kext v1.6.2 OS X 10.5.7 - AppleHDA.kext v1.6.8 Has anyone been able to successfully patch the latest version for ALC888 compatibility? There seem to be kexts based on v1.6.2 but I've seen nothing for v1.6.8
  15. Just downloaded and installed the latest updates to Quicktime Player (v7.6.2) and iTunes (8.2) hoping they might play nicely with AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext and there is some improvement on my system - the jerkiness isn't anywhere near as bad as it was before. But it is still there. Looks like time to reapply Disabler.kext
