do you mean to tell me that nobody got ALC889 working
halo1982 replied to JorgeCCastro's topic in Archive
Step Zero: Did you install the ALC889x drivers? I used a XxX 10.5.6 install disc and it came with ALC889a drivers that I could select and install. That's how I got sound. StEP ONE: Go to Apple>About this Mac>More Info>Click on Sound in System Profiler. Is a sound device listed? If yes, continue to step 2. If no, go back to step zero and install the drivers. STEP TWO: (using the default XXX ALC889a drivers) Go to System Preferences>Sound>Output>Select Internal Speakers as your audio output. That should be your line out jack. Then your BASIC audio will be working. Anything above that is over my head, but I'm about to plow into that. Good luck. 
10a261 compatibility with Unibody macbook pros
halo1982 replied to Mark2k's topic in OS X Snow Leopard (10.6)
I have a unibody MacBook (same system as the Pro, cept for the GeForce 9600 =P) and 9A261 worked on it, with no keyboard problems. But stay away for now, it's unstable as all hell. 
Ahhhhhh!!! Almost done!!!! Will continue to seed on my Powerbook as I install on my MacBook Pro. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

99.7% done. Argh! So close but soooooo far!

When I was looking through the application binaries with lipo on 9A527 I noticed the architectures were i386 and ppc7400. Which probably means there is little to no chance Leopard will ever run on a G3, as all of the apps are compiled for a G4.

How's your ATA performance? I have an RD480 Neo2 from MSI with a ULi southbridge, and it has no native ATA support...its terrible, like running an iMac 333.

Will Mac OS X v10.5 "Leopard" work on G5 Mac's?
halo1982 replied to raven hell's topic in OSx86 10.4 (Tiger)
It'll absolutly run on 10.5 and 10.6...remember G5s will probably still be shipping when 10.5 comes out (assuming transition not complete and Apple continues to sell PowerMac G5s until some time in 2007). 
Steve wanted to go Intel 5 years ago

Intel is certainly going to kick ass in the laptop area, but don't forget Apple can always go AMD for their desktops and servers. Apple PowerMac x8 based on quad dual core opterons in 2007? Mmmm. 
Intel based iMacs/Powerbook appear in January 2006

because linux driver support is GREAT!! (granted, its still better than OSX, but have you ever tried to get a broadcom chipset working without ndiswrapper or GL on nonnvidia hardware?) 
ATI Radeon 9600 Pro Mac & PC Edition
halo1982 replied to tweaker's topic in Hardware Components and Drivers
It won't work, because the computer will power on, the video card will see the BIOS and be like "oh hey...this is a PC...it has a BIOS...no need to load this Mac ROM" and load as a normal 9600 Pro. Then it'll get into OS X which has no drivers for the ATi cards, and you'll be back to square one. The Mac video card has nothing to do with it...those are designed for a PowerPC architecture with Open Firmware, and if thats what it finds it'll switch into Mac mode. But since the PC has a BIOS, it'll just run as a PC video card or won't boot at all (if Mac only). 
Does Anyone Have Working Usb Storage?
halo1982 replied to HBP's topic in Hardware Components and Drivers
I couldn't get my iPod to work on mine, but didn't ever have anything else to test it with (firewire didn't work either as I had an unsupported TI 1394 chipset). I never figured that one out...perhaps it's limited to non intel chipsets? You're running an nVidia, I had an ATi...perhaps it's that... 
Poll: How many bought/will buy a PPC Mac because of OSx86?
halo1982 posted a topic in Apple Opinions and Discussion
So yeah...poll is pretty self explanatory...how much business has OSx86 drummed up from Apple? I learned a lot using it, and it caused me to sell my NX9010 notebook (which weighed 40 pounds and barely ran OSx86) and buy a new iBook. I even got my free iPod mini for being a student

OK, from your screenshot it seems everything is fine. Its loading the AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext and its loading the AppleIntel ethernet kext. It won't load the graphics kext and you will continue to get that display error UNLESS you are running an intel GMA900 or GMA950 video chipset (i.e. i815G or i945G motherboard chipset). Seeing as you have an i945P with no integrated video and an ATI card, you'll always get that error. Nothing to worry about, move along. Your video won't be accelerated just like almost everyone else's. As for the error if AppleTPMACPI.kext, what you need to do is boot up in singleuser mode, s, and delete that file. It's located in /System/Library/Extensions. Also delete Extensions.mkext and Extension Cache.something which are located in /System/Library Then boot up using v. If everything is working and the only errors you get are about the display and about the TPMACPI, you're fine. Nothing to worry about as everyone gets those. TPMACPI deals with the cracking done to OSX, and theres nothing you can do about display short of buying a new motherboard.

QE/Ci on one monitor, not working on another?
halo1982 posted a topic in Hardware Components and Drivers
Is it possible to have a system using a GMA900 with QE/CI enabled as the primary monitor, while the secondary monitor is just a PCI add in card (radeon7k in my case) which would have QE/CI disabled? Or would QE/CI be disabled for the entire system as soon as it sees the radeon?
