  1. Everything works as best I can tell, just not optimally: Sleep: Sometimes will deep sleep, other times will go black with fans/lights still on. Panic: Sometimes will not wake, as it shut down sometime during sleep. Audio: Was working, then was quitting after every sleep, though turning volume down to zero and back would sometimes fix it. I ran something and something else, changed a value from 7 to 11, to 1, .. 8 .. back to 7 again. It works from the headphone jack, no where else. The Line Outs on the back would be nice ;-) Been doing these since the beginning, though always settled on "it just works", and stuck with it. I would like to understand DSDT / MaciASL / Compiling / Error fixing .. I was following this thread: (Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming Bios F7h + i7 8700K + GTX108) though I have not added Bluetooth yet, I need to get the right controller + 32 more GB.. ;-) Send me ICBM-x6.zip ICBM-x6.ioreg.zip

    I got it 2.0b17d2 working on a Motion M1400, with 10.5.7, by adding 'PNP0501' to the string list in the plist.

    TabletMagic for TabletPCs

    From my TC1100 - it finds it, but .. no amount of messing with serial ports can I seem to find what port the thing might be residing on. 9/18/09 10:00:20 PM com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic[178] TabletMagicDaemon v2.0b17d1 9/18/09 10:00:20 PM com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic[178] [iNIT] renice -20 178 : Succeeded 9/18/09 10:00:21 PM com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic[178] [PROC] Tablet Bounds: (0, 0) - (15239, 15239) 9/18/09 10:00:21 PM com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic[178] [PROC] Screen Bounds: (0, 0) - (1599, 1199) I compiled setserial and that complains about any of the /dev/ttypX entries I try. Seems like everything else, it's ttySx but here it's ttypX ioreg shows no WACF0005 either, but that other command shows it.
  4. I compiled setserial from this thread in trying to get the digitizer working on a TC1100, I've placed it in /usr/bin so it's handy, on anything I try with it: setserial ttys0 Cannot get serial info: Inappropriate ioctl for device Of course, there's apparently no serial port enabled on this so I'm not totally surprised, but thats part of what i'm trying to figure out is how to get the serial port to be enabled so TabletMagic can find it. The digitizer is identifiable as discussed in this thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1246976

    On the TC1100 - I've taken the source from the x61 kext and enabler and changed the 16Xxx serial one to WACF005 and added that into the enabler kext -and they do load on bootup now. Where as the other TC1100 'specific' enabler does not load during boot. I've got 10.5.7 going on a TC1100 1GB with 2GB of RAM. It took some finagling, but it's working. Works really really well, too. Just the USB pointer stick comes and goes, the CardBus slot is MIA and of course, the tablet. The display is mirroring which is fine, thats all I ever do with it anyway. Rotation is not necessary. I compiled setserial from this thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=155999 I've placed it in /usr/bin so it's handy, on anything I try with it: setserial ttys0 Cannot get serial info: Inappropriate ioctl for device In fooling around with something I did get a new device listing, ttys000 - but that too gives me the same message. I'm perplexed that the presence of the digitizer is detected but there is no way to talk to it. The TC1100 has the lamest version of Phoenix BIOS i've ever seen. I think the menu at In-N-Out burger has more visible options on it. Why even have it there, does HP think we're all technophobes? ;-) the latest Ubuntu boots right up and uses all the features. So sad.. This page references some code for enabling the serial port in Linux. I think I'll try to figure out how to compile it and see if helps. I've not messed with Xcode or much of this kind of stuff in general very much, but... perhaps I'll figure it out. Anyone got any pointers or direction I should go in?

    Question on QE/CI - etc. in Profiler

    Thats about the same thing.. Seems they have moved on from all that now.. On the other side of things, it appears to have 'fixed' some issues with Photoshop CS4 that were keeping it from being real useful. Masks and what not were basically not visible or covering the whole screen when you worked on stuff.

  8. The question begs here, does this add the necessary receipt that Disk Utility needs for the permissions on the /System hierarchy or is it only "happy" because it found *something* that happens to be just what was left from the otherwise proper and successful install of the BSD package? I suspect it's the latter, myself. This will only matter until 10.6.1 or something as you'll be installing from within that soon. Or.. once you're happy with your 10.6 you can then install it and migrate again, from another disk. As booting won't be as weird with in and out of BIOS settings because you can effectively use the same boot loader from either drive to load the other.
  9. It used to be in System Profiler under the graphics section you would see QE/CI and the like with "Supported" or "enabled", etc. On 10.6 does it not show this anymore? I'm pretty sure hardware acceleration is working as when the "Welcome" ran it was really smooth and the Setup Assistant had the rotating cube effects that it did not previously have before I added the EFI strings for the 7900GS.
  10. In all the previous OS's, we would see: Quartz Extreme: Core Image: On, supported, whatever ... Or off if not supported. On 10.6 we don't see that. The XBench stuff sure implies it's all working, as did the rotating cube effect on the Setup Assistant when I booted.

    --- Well, it works 100% all 64 Bit on the BadAxe 2 here. Now.. for Migration Assistant to run. ..and migrate to the post-install discussion forum for more. ;-)

    For the warnings on the mkext, of course- you are compiling the /Extra/Extensions. There's lots of stuff *not* in there. you'll get errors about dependencies. Notice they were warnings and you should also see in there that it says included anyway. On the ownerships, in the past chown -R root:wheel was how you did it, seems that 10.6 has issues with that, perhaps because it sets it to some other UID so instead it appears that using UID and GID of 0 does the trick, so chown -R 0:0 instead. The permissions are still 755 and that works. My hang up now is the 7900 GS 512M is working with all the features, except I can't change resolution without a panic. It's defaulting to 800x600 with the EFI string, selecting anything else, as soon as the screen refreshes, it panics. I tried a different EFI string and I got the multi languages instead of a panic screen dump. Searching for that kind of information in the forum .. is challenging

    I ended up doing something similar and had it working quite well for a bit last evening.. In messing with the IOATA PII kext, and replacing it with the netkas one- the whole thing came apart fast. I tried to replace the kext directory with the previous one and then all kinds of other things were causing KP's. Dock app, teleport, and what not. Yes, 10.6 seems horrendously anal on permissions. Basically, it was working pretty solidly until I started messing around with the nvidia kexts. I have a 7900GS 512MB that has a device ID of 0292, and I was not having any luck with getting more than 1024x768 selectable. As well, the performance was sluggish on it, so it was obviously in peril. No EFI string I put into the boot plist made a bit of difference. I did get the Marvel controller working and I didn't get a chance to verify it, but during verbose boots I saw a report of a 10MBit connection from the NIC. A drop from the Hudson river to a garden hose would be hard to swallow. I should have noted, in light of the issues of fighting the permissions, when I ended up doing was installing the OS to the drive the way the other BadAxe2 Kernel Panic thread described, but using the boot loaders mentioned here. The flagging is still a bit unclear, when you do the P you see 4 items, 3 of which are empty. I ended up just picking the first one and used that. This is all from a working 10.5.8 install. Another thing I saw was when the SATA devices were listed as unknown in 10.6, and I see them now as ICH7-R. Does Kext Helper or OSx86Tools work the same with 10.6? I'd like a way to know I'm making a decent backup of the kexts since doing it the way I've always done it didn't work with 10.6 and the only way to use KextUtil is to boot the volume you wish to use the util on.. which .. you can't if you have a bad kext issue. Oh, also- an old way to keep the installer from rebooting your computer "in 30 seconds" when it's done, is to open the Installer Log window (from the window menu) and leave that in the front. Then you can go away and come back .. you can open a terminal window after the installer is done, do your thing and quit and then it will reboot.

    BadAxe2 kernel panic

    Followed this stuff loosely, and I'm booted and working. I actually let it run the migration assistant to give it a workout, and that worked. I need to do the kext utility now, and then work on the audio, ATA, the Marvel controller and the 7900 GS 512M card. Way back when I did the bios edit on the 7900 GS, so I don't know if thats gonna come back and byte me in the arse or not..

    Couple of issues thus far .. On the set boot flag, do you mean the "flag 2" thing, and is it done to the USB Boot partition? (that only has the few files in it) On the mkext file; No matter how persistent I am, chmod -R root:wheel *, chown -R 755 *, in that extras/extensions directory I can not get past: ICBM:Extensions user$ sudo kextcache -m /Volumes/USB\ Boot/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/USB\ Boot/Extra/Extensions/ kernel extension /Volumes/USB Boot/Extra/Extensions/fakesmc.kext is not authentic (check ownership and permissions); skipping it and any plugins kernel extension /Volumes/USB Boot/Extra/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext is not authentic (check ownership and permissions); skipping it and any plugins kernel extension /Volumes/USB Boot/Extra/Extensions/OpenHaltRestart.kext is not authentic (check ownership and permissions); skipping it and any plugins kernel extension /Volumes/USB Boot/Extra/Extensions/PlatformUUID.kext is not authentic (check ownership and permissions); skipping it and any plugins kernel extension /Volumes/USB Boot/Extra/Extensions/SleepEnabler.kext is not authentic (check ownership and permissions); skipping it and any plugins couldn't find any valid bundles to archive The permissions show correct, but the owner/group is user:staff no matter what. Whats missing here? ;-)
