  1. I'm interested too. I installed Leopard using boot-132 with a Vanilla kernel and Chameleon 2.0RC2. The only things I modified were the EFI stuff for my nvidia and a patched AppleHDA. I'm hearing things about DSDT.aml. What's that for?
  2. Although development has stagnated a bit until a few months ago, FS'es are still very strong on Linux. There's ext2/3, XFS, JFS and there used to be ReiserFS. All of them are mature, stable, fast and feature-rich. And recently there've been developments on ext4, btrfs and nilfs, so the future is bright. And hey, anything beats HFS+. ZFS is awesome, but with Apple you never know what kind of restrictions they are going to impose on this otherwise beautiful piece of software by Sun. Btw, NTFS-3g doesn't seem to support posix permissions, let alone ACL's. Everything is root:admin 777 here. Besides, performance on OS X really sucks. While Linux can read as fast as 105MB/s, OS X tops at 40MB/s with a disappointing 30MB/s average. Your best bet would be HFS unjournaled, but I'm not sure you want that.
  3. Linux Program Lists

    I mostly use the same tools as in OS X (FF, OOo, bash, SSH, VLC, mplayer) Linux-specific (kind of) apps/tools. Basically stuff that I miss : Amarok: best media player ever (using it @OS X is not so great, though) K3b: burning Shorewall / iptables: firewall. ipfw is nice but it causes my system to freeze. Shorewall is a config file based front-end for iptables. KTorrent: one of the best torrent clients (second to µTorrent for Windows) PulseAudio: network-enabled audio server libflac/libvorbis: support for all codecs without dirty and user-ufriendly hacks like Fluke VPDAU: Let the GPU render my H.264 1080p kioslaves: Full Network transparancy in all kde-apps
  4. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    My Realtek ALC883 is working great with S/PDIF out, but unfortunately only one line-out is supported (front). Is there anything I can do to fix this or to help Taruga come up with a fix? Any help would be dearly appreciated. This is my codec dump from Linux: http://stuwww.uvt.nl/~s178024/mac/alc883-p5k.txt I'm using HDAEnabler. This is what System profiler tells me: Intel High Definition Audio: Device ID: 0x1043829F Audio ID: 12 Available Devices: Thanks!
  5. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    Do not drag 'the code' anywhere. Drag the file onto the AppleHDA patchter.
  6. C-Media CMI8788 Drivers for Leopard?

    You could have a look at the Linux drivers (alsa). Linux has support for D1(X) and D2(X). There's even experimental support for the HDAV1.3 and upcoming support for the Essence series. They are supported by the snd-virtuoso driver. There's also support for other CMI8788 based cards like the AuzenTech X-Meridian through the snd-oxygen module. C-Media CMI8x38 PCI cards use the snd-cmipci driver. For all these cards all analog (7.1 or 5.1) and digital (except hdmi) connections seem to work properly. There is also support for 192/96kHz, 24-bit and MIDI. Basically everything except hdmi is supported. In Linux, but given enough knowledge and time those drivers could be portable.
  7. AppleHDA Patcher Results

    Computer Type: PC, Asus P5k Sound Card Vendor: Realtek Sound Card Model: ALC883 Vendor Id: 0x10ec0883 Working: S/PDIF out, line out front, line in Not Working: other line outs (orange and black one) Patcher Version used: 1.20 System Version: OS X.5.7 obs: Mic not tested Codec Dump used (dumped from Ubuntu 9.04 @ this PC): http://stuwww.uvt.nl/~s178024/mac/alc883-p5k.txt
  8. 10.5.7 Released

    I'm still getting "wating for root device", even though there's a kext for my chipset/SATA controller (AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext) in /S/L/E/IOATAFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns. Does anyone have a solution? Tnx.
  9. Did you do anything in particular or can I just pop in my retail windows CD/DVD, install it and somehow boot it virtualized? Because I checked it with Parallels (I don't own Fusion yet), but I cannot find anything that would suggest it's possible to boot into an existing install. I would really appreciate it if you could enlighten me .
  10. Well, I'm also looking into Boot Camp on my hackintosh, because I think the primary advantage over a regular Windows install is that a boot camp install can be virtualized in OS X, which eliminates the need for 2 separate windows installations. Or did I miss something?
  11. Modified boot-132 Bootloader

    I'm running into problems using the BOOT-KABYL-BUMBY.iso and the following kexts: AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext AppleSMBIOS.kext dsmos.kext It's a minimal set of kexts because my first priority is getting into the installer properly. Initially everything goes well; I boot the kabyl CD; swap it for the retail DVD and booting seems to be fine. Then I get to the purple Nebula screen (default Leopard background), but I do not get any dialog. Instead I just get the busy-mousepointer (which seems to flicker a bit sometimes) and my dvd and HD drive seem to be idle. My specs: - Asus P5K w/ P35 chipset - Q6600 - Asus SATA dvd+/-RW DL - Raptor 150GB (server edition, without clearcover) - Spinpoint F1 1TB - Geforce 8600GT My system works fine with Kalyway (now typing from OS X 10.5.5), but I wanted to reinstall properly using the retail DVD. But no luck so far. Does anyone have any clue to what's going on? Help would really be appreciated. Tnx!
