  1. NEW: SleepEnablerNG for 10.6.8 and Lion

    Yep. Yep, it's loaded. Yep. Nope.
  2. NEW: SleepEnablerNG for 10.6.8 and Lion

    Not for me. The kernel I am using already has built-in power management disabling, and I even used NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to be sure. My computer seems to go into an S1 sleeping state because the power button light turns yellow, the hard drive spins down, and the video feed turns off, but the fan is still running, which means something is still powered (the only thing left is the CPU and the RAM). I need it to go into S3. In addition, I am unable to power back up; I have to do a hard reboot.
  3. NEW: SleepEnablerNG for 10.6.8 and Lion

    Sleep still does not work with my Asus M2N68-LA (NARRA2) motherboard even with SleepEnablerNG 1.0.2. My DSDT is attached if somebody wants to help me. HP_Pavilion_a6110n.dsl.zip
  4. Update: These symptoms seem to indicate that my computer is in the S1 state instead of the desired S3 state. Hey guys. So I tried to get sleep working by simply enabling it through SleepEnabler.kext, but it still does not work properly. When I sleep, the hard drives spin down, the displays turn off, and the sleep light comes on but all the fans are still running. And furthermore, I am unable to wake up from sleep either through the power button or through the keyboard; I have to do a hard reboot. This leads me to believe that my DSDT is buggy and needs fixing. My DSDT is attached with a few minor fixes already applied to it. Could any of you knowledgeable people help me in fixing my DSDT so that sleep can work properly? Thanks, fumoboy007 P.S. This is the only thing that is not working on my hackintosh.

  5. History I have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor. If I boot into Snow Leopard as is, I get EXC_I386_DIV crashes across my entire system after a few hours. If I boot with the cpus=1 kernel flag, I do not receive the crashes but I lose my second core, of course. When I booted with both cores enabled, I saw a message in my kernel log saying I had an unsynchronized TSC (time stamp counter) so I deduced that that was the cause of my crashes. And it made sense since only after a few hours could the TSC become so unsynchronized so as to cause crashes (I don't know the specifics.). After I discovered this, I found the VoodooTSCSync project (http://code.google.com/p/voodootscsync/). I tried it and it synchronized my TSC at boot but I still got crashes! Then I realized that I needed my TSC to be synchronized constantly, just like the AMD Dual-Core Optimizer does for Windows users. So I took the VoodooTSCSync project and turned it into VoodooTSCSyncAMD. What it does VoodooTSCSyncAMD is basically AMD Dual-Core Optimizer for the Mac OS. It synchronizes the TSC across all processor cores every 10 seconds. This is for Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2, Opteron (first-generation and second-generation), Sempron X2, and Turion 64 X2. VoodooTSCSyncAMD is essential to prevent EXC_I386_DIV crashes on these processors, as well as problems with Adobe Flash Player, and system lag after a few hours. I would like to thank the original creators of VoodooTSCSync for their efforts. VoodooTSCSyncAMD.kext.zip VoodooTSCSyncAMD.zip

    Chameleon bootloader legacy kernel use amd_insn_patcher to patch /System/Library/QuickTime/QuickTimeComponents.component/Contents/MacOS/QuickTimeComponents if you want to run 64-bit, use amd_insn_patcher to patch /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib AMD Dual-Core Optimizer for Snow Leopard a modified DSDT FakeSMC.kext EvOreboot.kext enable AHCI mode AHCIPortInjector.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext AppleHDA.kext for ALC888 add your network card info to /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  7. I fixed mine by enabling 64-bit user mode.
  8. I am having the same problem. The fsck command line tool does not work with over 4 GB of RAM even though everything else works fine. I do not think it has anything to do with SATA/PATA controllers since the OP has an Intel southbridge while I have an nVidia southbridge. I am using Andy's updated legacy kernel. Perhaps this is the problem. @OP do you know what kernel you are using?
  9. Divide by zero crash across all applications

    oops…spoke too soon…apps are still crashing . Someone help me please.
  10. Divide by zero crash across all applications

    No, no..all the files are good. BUT...I think i fixed it! I just had to edit my DSDT to make it look like Snow Leopard was Vista (Windows 2006 hack). But in my case, I had already done that but i found out there was another place in the DSDT that was checking for this so all I did was change that and BOOM...no more crashes or freezes! Thanks for your help guys.
  11. Hey guys, I'm having a very strange problem…but first, here are my specs: Processor: AMD Athlon X2 4400+ RAM: 2x1GB Samsung DDR2 Storage: nForce 430 + SATA DVD + SATA HDD OS: Chameleon + Snow Leopard 10.6.4 + nawcom's legacy kernel + Marvin's AMD Utility applied to the whole OS On to the problem…From time to time, some of my apps will crash and then after a few minutes, the entire system will freeze. The crash is a divide by zero error (EXC_I386_DIV) and the crashed thread always looks something like this: 0 <<00000000>> 0xffff0329 __gettimeofday + 73 (cpu_capabilities.h:177) 1 libSystem.B.dylib 0x90004edb gettimeofday + 43 2 com.apple.CoreFoundation 0x9082e7a6 CFAbsoluteTimeGetCurrent + 31 Just to reiterate, these crashes happen in many applications like Finder, Safari, Microsoft Messenger, Skype, Mail, and uTorrent so it is not an application-specific crash. Is anyone else getting this problem or can somebody tell me what to do? Thanks.
  12. Update MeDevil's AppleNForceATA please!

    oooooooo...MeDevil's TEST AppleNForceATA lets me read DVDs and hard drives! Now if someone could get DVD writing working and make a 64-bit version of this TEST kext, that would be great.
  13. Hey guys, Is anyone actively working on AppleNForceATA? This kext still has major problems. I am using Snow Leopard and I have an nForce 430 chipset (MCP61P). I have tried every AppleNForceATA kext out there and one of the older versions (1.0.2) is causing problems and the latest version (1.0.4 by AnV) is causing problems. Using the older one, I can read DVDs from my SATA DVD drive but I cannot access my SATA hard drives. Using the newer one, I can access my SATA hard drives but I cannot read DVDs from my SATA DVD drive! I have also tried using AppleVIAATA for my SATA and it turns out it has the same problem as the older AppleNForceATA. In addition, none of these kexts allow me to burn DVDs from my SATA DVD drive. Could someone help me out please? Thanks.
