  1. AC97 sound not working

    Here is my truncated Info.plist - it's notably shorter and keeps only one section with one entry for the sound card: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList -1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>CFBundleGetInfoString</key> <string>1.0.0, Copyright Apple Computer, Inc. 2004</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>6.0</string> <key>CFBundleName</key> <string>Intel ICHx AC97 Audio Driver</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>KEXT</string> <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key> <string>1.0.0</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>????</string> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>1.0.0</string> <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict> <key>ICH4 AC97 Audio</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>ICH Type</key> <integer>4</integer> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x24858086</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>10000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> </dict> </dict> <key>OSBundleLibraries</key> <dict> <key>com.apple.driver.AppleAC97Audio</key> <string>1.0.0</string> <key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key> <string>1.1</string> </dict> </dict> </plist>
  2. OK, Several rumor sites said the first Macs to get an Intel processor would be the Mac Mini. If you take a look at the current specs of the Mac mini and assume that you will have a 2.5 GHz latest low power Intel chip (early 2006) instead of the current G4. Assume the rest remains equivalent (memory & al and mostly the PRICE) although we could expect a better video card. Let's also assume that a announced, Apple won't make any move to prevent you from installing Windows on the box and dual booting would be possible if you want. Now the question: would you buy one? Don't forget that with the Mac you will have iLife and the OS X licence and no fuss about cracking OSX to make it work on a non-Apple machine (which you will have to do every 3 month when service packs, euhh, system updates e.g. 10.4.2). So, compared with a Dell, with the Microsoft tax (Windows included :-) and having to pirat and crack OS X, is it worth it? I know I will buy a Mactel as soon as it is confirmed that it can also run Windows and I will have a single comouter at home. Think of a iMac 20" with a nice 3GHz Intel inside and 1.5GB RAM... I WANT ONE!!!
  3. AC97 sound not working

    SUCCESS !! I edited the Info.plist file and removed all sections but the one containing my card pci ID. As I found on other forums that working AC97 were in the section 4 or more (4, 5 or 99) I changed the 3 to 4 and shutdown the machine. After reboot, I had modules loading automatically at startup and SOUND !!! I don't have the machine with me now, I will post my Info.plist soon. I looks like the OS got confused by all the cards definition and by keeping just one, it found its way at last. So I belong to the wrong section now :-D
  4. AC97 sound not working

    Well, Deadmoo's VMware image, cleaned and patched (Maxxuss 0.41, but I had no sound prior to the patches). Then I used the Ubuntu live CD method to transfer to the Satellite Pro. It's really working well, stable and al but the sound... Any ideas out there?
  5. AC97 sound not working

    Hello, Two days of efforts... I followed the wiki for sound but my card is listed there: Ubuntu says it's a 82801 CA/CAM AC97 Audio COntroller with vendor id 0x8086 and product id 0x2485, and in the AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext, if I look a the Info.plist file I have an entry in the "ICH3 AC97 Audio" section: <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x24858086</string> that matches my card. The sound does not load at startup. I can manually load the AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext with no error. But there is still no sound... What did I wrong? Thanks. Gl.
  6. The Bootable Install DVD Project

    Editing the mixed mode ISO-HFS+ DVD image is easy java script:emoticon('%3C_%3C') You need a mac (PearPC will do) java script:emoticon('') . If you have your Marklar-Tiger.iso file on your (Mac OS X) desktop, open terminal and enter the following command: hdiutil attach ~/Desktop/Marklar-Tiger.iso -readwrite The DVD iso file will mount as read write and you can then patch directly from the GUI, or from terminal (it will mount in /Volumes). Be careful, if your iso file name has spaces in it, you will need to take care of it: hdiutil attach "~/Desktop/My Tiger Iso File.iso" -readwrite or the command line will fail. So, for non Intel 915 chipset mortals, anyone get a solution to get the DVD Install run? I'll start tests again from the original DVD adding patches step by step. I plan to put Maxxuss 0.4.1 kernel + oah files on the DVD then see what happens. If if fails to boot (I think it will for lack of support for ACPI support and PATA driver) I will then walk my way adding extensions until something comes up. Anyone already walked this path? Please come back and share your test results.
  7. enlarge the image from 6gb to 160gb

    To create a new partition in the remaining free space, I would suggest using a Linux Live CD (I used Ubuntu) then fdisk /dev/hda Enter ? to get options, "p" to print current partition table, add a new partition, primary, number 2, use all default values (it should use all the entire free space). You have to edit the partition id to set it to "af" (same id as your first partition generated from disk dump). Back in Tiger you should be able to format the existing partition.
  8. Hi, Just faced it, with Ubuntu Live CD. Though you have SMB client, you do not have the SMBFS tools: symptoms are you can browse Windows servers but any "mount -t smbfs" fails with the symptom you describe. In Gentoo, I can<t help. In Ubuntu, start the Synaptics package manager, agree to refresh your sources (Internet connection required) then search (menu Edit, Search) for the word "smb" and you will see the missing tools (uninstalled). Mark for installation, agree for any dependancies and apply changes. Once setup completes, your command line that failed magically start working... While you are there, search for "hfs" and install hfs related packages. That way, you can create a secondary partition on your physical drive (because dumping the 6 GB image file even on a 20 GB disk will result in a single 6 GB primary partition created and 14 GB of free space) and format it a HFS. Enjoy.
  9. ORIGINAL bootable marklar-tiger.iso DVD working?

    Hi, Same errors here. I tried ALL possible methods to get a bootable DVD (be it patching the original ISO DVD or creating a bootable DVD from scratch) and it fails miserably loading DMProxy with crash code (note the original crash has references to oah750d...). Fails miserable on a non-SATA machine (i.e. a plain old Parallel ATA disk), be it in VMware (P4 Xeon HT), or on a physical box (P4 Xeon HT or P4 HT). I tried different level of patching, and (as I had SSE3 machines) it is clear you need to do the Extensions part (otherwise, no PATA boot and unknown ACPI machine, no boot). You also need the oah patch otherwise, well boot process stops quite early (no match message). Once I touch the extensions AND apply the oah patch, then the DVD is toasted (hum), well does not boot, trap at DMProxy and whatever method used to create it does not matter (from Linux, from Windows, from a Mac - the patching steps end up being the same). One last comment. Don't waste time burning DVDs (be it RW). VMware cannot boot the ISO file directly (boot fails miserable with hfs_mountroot error: 5 - a read write error). The problem is VMware handling of an HFS ISO. To boot from an ISO directly in VMware, install Daemon Tools (Windows only), mount the ISO with Deamon Tools and map VMware virtual CD drive to the Deamon Tools drive. It does work very well (read: any Install DVD I tried crashed consistently at the same point in VMware and on a physical machine. So for now I stopped burning DVDs and I test VMware only). Come on: anyone can tell us why a SATA machie can boot the DVD and not a PATA machine?
