  1. Hey guys. I have a question. Do you think that a USB 2.0 ports PCI card would work on my hackintosh? I mean, does it work with Hackintosh in general? I would need to add 4-5 more USB 2.0 ports to my PC, because they're always useful! Thank you for your help.
  2. Hey guys. Have you noticed about Photoshop CS4 having performance issues with 256 Mb NVidia GPU? The images don't refresh properly, they get black, they return normal after clicking out of their frame, they become difficult to work with, unless you deselect "use OpenGL", from the Preferences of Photoshop CS4. Well, my MacBook Pro has also 256 Mb of GPU, but it works perfect. This means that the issue I'm having with my desktop PC may depend on NATIT.kext, or on the EFI strings I inserted in com.apple.boot.plist. Does anybody know how to solve this? Thank you! (PS: you can see my specs from my signature).
  3. Hi, guys. I have a question. I have a wireless Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2.0. This mouse has 4 buttons, plus wheel. I have set the functions of the buttons in a way that the 2 small buttons work as "back" and "forward" in my browsers. In fact they work perfectly well in all my browsers but in Safari. In Safari, the "back" button forwards the page I'm viewing to a mail recipient, while the "forward" button switches between the open tabs. Does anybody know how to personalize the mouse functions in Safari? Thank you very much for your help, everybody!

    Photoshop CS4 OpenGL Performance

    Thank you so much. You saved my Photoshop CS4!

    Photoshop CS4 OpenGL Performance

    That would not be a solution. That would be surrender... If I have to buy a new card, I would first solve this problem and then buy a new one, after I'm satisfied.

    Photoshop CS4 OpenGL Performance

    I think we should try to find a kext other than Natit or EFI strings, to produce better QE performance. So far, no success. I've tried NVdarwin, NVkush, NVinject, but all of these kexts gave me no QE at all. Please keep us updated if you have any results.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Yep! That's true! I can't believe, after installing everything and uploading everything!! Well, I have Adobe Creative Suite 2 (CS2), which includes many applications, including Photoshop CS2. Everything works but Photoshop CS2. It starts loading and after awhile, it crashes. It gives me this error: Does anybody know how to fix this HUGE problem? Thanks in advance for cooperating...

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Meanwhile, I have totally changed my configuration, hardware and software. I don't use an Epson scanner (I switched to Canon), I am not using Tiger, as I used to (now I have Leopard) and I am not using CS2 (now I have CS4). I have even formatted the hard disk I had when I started this topic, so I cannot help georgeorange. Sorry!
  9. Thank you so much for this information. System Pref./Energy Saver/Put the hard disk to sleep didn't work (I had already tried before posting my problem) HDAPM works PERFECT! So you've solved my problem. Thank you again.
  10. Hey guys. As you can see from my signature, I have a GMA900 and therefore I had to face some problems. First I went through the Installation that JaS suggested for those like me who have an Intel GMA900. So I installed his (reseed) 10.4.8 DVD without checking any GMA video, then after I finished the OS installation, I installed the package called GMA900 Support. It seemed that everything was working fine, until I noticed about some PPC applications which use video (like Sibelius) crashing immediately after launching them. I realized that also QuickTime, Mplayer and other applications crashed if launched under Rosetta. I opened a post here, but I had some replies only by Rammjet (thank you, Rammjet! ), who couldn't help much, since he didn't have the 10.4.8 new kernel installed (and by other people who like wasting time by typing messages with no content). In that post I listed also the error reports I had got from 2 programs. Since nobody replied, then I understood I had once again to do by myself. So I carefully analyzed the reports and I guessed the problems were given by the GMA900 Support installation. In order to be totally sure of it, I reinstalled my OS, and before applying the GMA900Support I launched many applications under Rosetta. They worked perfectly. Then I installed that package and they started crashing again. After installing the GMA900 Support, I realized also that the file AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext which is in this package gives the possibility to change the screen resolution, but it slows down the computer. So I preferred restoring the original version of AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext and changing the resolution of my screen by typing <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280x1024x32</string> in the file com.apple.boot.plist. This way I increased my benchmarks of the 18%. In order to fix my GMA900, instead I used another method: I modified the file AppleIntel915.kext, which I am attaching here in my version, and then I eliminated the files AppleIntel915GLDriver.bundle?AppleIntel915GA.plugin?AppleIntelGMA950.kext from System/Library/Extensions. This way my GMA900 works, and I don't have all those problems with the PPC applications, which now run perfectly well. Now the problem I have is that this solution looks a bit unstable to me, because from time to time (it happened twice in the last 4 hours) I see black spots on my screen, which eventually disappear. May I ask now the attention of the entire forum, in order to definitely solve the problem of GMA900 and to make it more stable? Thank you everybody. AppleIntel915.kext.zip

    Photoshop CS4 OpenGL Performance

    It's not that. I've tried the three options: 1) Only Natit.kext; 2) Only EFI Strings; 3) Both But nothing has changed. I saw on the Net that I'm not the only one having this problem with Photoshop CS4. The others have "solved" it by just disabling OpenGL drawing, but there must be another way to solve this issue! Other ideas?
  12. hey, slashack, you didn't reply to my question here. Does it mean you don't know a solution to this problem?
  13. In my case, the solution was substituting my "new" leopard JMicronATA with the "old" one, modded from Tiger. I have a problem, though (this is for you, slashack): after awhile I have stopped using a drive, it "goes to sleep", i.e. I cannot wake it up, it even freezes the programs which try to open it and eventually even the finder. Is there a way to solve this problem? I remember in the case of Tiger, in "SystemPreferences/Energy" there was something to choose not to make the CD drives go to sleep, but in Leopard there is nothing similar. Any idea?!?
  14. VERY useful indeed! I was sick of typing everything each time.. I have re-written the last line of umount to erase Volumes/EFI. Why did you write it could be dangerous to do that?
  15. In my case, it works perfect. You might have some problems with your Internet provider or your configuration.
  16. OK, I will tell you my experience. I was able to use the dsdt properly. The first version of it I produced was inappropriate for my system. In order to get it working properly, I had to drag the patcher in the Terminal and type "-newHPET". So I had to use a different way to patch HPET, otherwise, without IntelCPUPMDisabler my system would not boot. I have eliminated IntelCPUPMDisabler from the list of my efi kexts. The present ones are: JMicronATA LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage LegacyAppleAHCIPort LegacyHDAController LegacyHDAPlatformDriver HDAEnabler OpenHaltRestart AppleDecrypt SMBIOSResolver Do you guys think there is something else I could take off? (dsdt patcher left 3 text files called rtc_fixed, dsdt_fixed and hpet_fixed) Thank you
  17. I am also totally new about DSDT. I've been out for awhile and I don't know much about it. So far I've downloaded the last version of the patcher, I double clicked and I got my dsdt.aml. I have the nice feeling that by using dsdt I can avoid loading IntelCPUPMDisabler. What about the other kexts? At the moment, I am using: JMicronATA (as a driver for IDE DVD burners --for 3Gb and more of RAM) LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA (for ICH10 chipset) LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage (not to see SATA HDDs as network drives) LegacyAppleAHCIPort (not to see SATA HDDs as network drives) LegacyHDAController (for audio) LegacyHDAPlatformDriver (for audio) HDAEnabler (for audio) IntelCPUPMDisabler (nonHPET) OpenHaltRestart (restart problems) AppleDecrypt SMBIOSResolver Please let me know, my friends.
  18. Hey Slashack, I have solved my problem! THANK YOU. Apparently, it was not working because I was making a terribly stupid mistake. I was loading JMicron in a wrong way. At the moment, I am loading your version from the EFI partition. I have modified the strings, in order to load only the IOPCIPrimaryMatch I need (0x2368197b). The others were creating conflicts. I noticed the bin file is different from the one of Leopard. Is it from Tiger? Is there a way to use the bin from Leopard, so that I can load only the plist file from the EFI partition? Please let me know.
  19. So is there a reason why I should use GenericCPUPowerManagement, considering I am using a Vanilla Kernel? Would you do it if you were in my shoes?
  20. Dear Superhai, I am using a retail installation of Leopard, booting my kexts from EFI partition (see my specs in the signature). At the moment, the only CPU related kext I am using is IntelCPUPMDisabler. All the non-vanilla kexts I am using are: LegacyJMicronATA LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage LegacyAppleAHCIPort LegacyHDAController LegacyHDAPlatformDriver HDAEnabler IntelCPUPMDisabler OpenHaltRestart AppleDecrypt SMBIOSResolver Do you think I would need your GenericCPUPowerManagement? Would I need to delete IntelCPUPMDisabler once I use your kext? Thank you.
  21. Slashack, how can it be the kernel, if I am using the Vanilla one? Isn't it very strange? I have already downloaded (and used) the last version of your JMicronATA from GoogleCode. I keep having the same results. Could it be something changeable from the BIOS?
  22. Thank you very much for your interest. Sorry for the delay of my reply, but I've been out for awhile. Here is a screen on my panic. Please let me know what you think.
  23. Hi. I have 4Gb of RAM and I keep getting kernel panics even with the patched JMicronATA. I don't get them when inserting a DVD, but after awhile I am extracting its content (with mactheripper etc.). I have a retail Leopard installation with the patched kexts in the EFI partition. See my signature for specs. I am attaching my dump.txt. Is anybody able to help me? Thanks. dumpino.txt
  24. Has anybody read about netkas' PCEFIV9? Could it be what we were looking for? Can it substitute our boot loader and work with our installation? EDIT: netkas told me it can't...
