  1. Sorry, posted the wrong Kernel version. My current kernel is: Darwin Kernel Version 8.9.1: Mon Apr 23 16:01:03 UZT 2007; made by ToH:xnu-792.18.15/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386 i386 i386 My processor is also only SSE2 compliant (Pentium 4M, 1.8ghz).
  2. Hello, I installed Tiger 10.4.11 via the XXX rev 2.0 disc. When I installed it I checked off a few of the kernels thinking that it would give me an option to choose which one to boot from like Linux does (silly me), but it ended up using 8.9.1 Apr 23 Universal (found using uname). [EDIT - Fixed version] Everything works fine (speedstep, graphics, wireless, sound, etc.) except for the sleep function. I've tried using all three modes of hibernation (0,1,and 3) all of which produce the same result. When I initiate sleep, the screen goes blank and the harddrive stops, but both the power light and the fan remain on for around 30 seconds to a minute. Then the whole system just turns off. I have a feeling its a kernel problem, but if anyone else has an idea, please share. Also, how does one go about changing a kernel? Will I have to completely reinstall via the XXX rev 2.0 disc? Which kernel appears to work best? Thanks!
  3. Hello, I've installed 10.4.8 (JaS release) on my old dell C640 w/ a 1.8ghz P4 mobile and a radeon 7500 mobile. It installed fine and I chose to install all the kernel extensions on the dvd. But after installation, it starts to boot (and I get that grey screen with the apple logo and spinning circle thing), but after the grey screen I just get a blank, black screen. I am guessing X11 isn't working properly. Is there a way to turn on software rendering until I get a better "driver" for the 7500? I'm new to this OSX stuff. There's something I'm kind of confused on, are what exactly are kernel extensions and where can I get them and how do I install them? Thanks!
  4. Older Dell Latitude C640 - What distro?

    Alright, thanks Kenny! I'll try Kalyway's leo, and if that doesn't work I'll use 10.4.8.
  5. Hey everyone, I'm relatively new to this whole OSx86 deal, and was wondering what distro seems to work best with older dell latitudes (actual hardware listed below). I would like to use the latest version of OSX, but beggars can't be choosers I suppose. Any advice you guys can give me would be greatly appreciated. Here's my hardware profile: CPU - Pentium 4 Mobile 1.8ghz (SSE2 only) Memory - 1 gig Graphics - Radeon 7500 Mobile 32MB HD - 40 gigs (yeah, small) Sound - Intel Integrated (driver is ac97intc.sys in windows, not sure what that tells) So is any of this compatable with 10.5.x, or will I have to use 10.4.x, and if so, what distro usually works best with older laptops (specifically dells). Thanks so much for the help! It's greatly appreciated.
