  1. Got to love the Apple rumour mill... http://wccftech.com/apple-mac-pro-imac-pro-running-intels-new-core-i9-7900x-spotted-geekbench/
  2. Thanks for the info on 10.6.8! Updating now... EDIT: Worked like a charm. Just did a System Update followed by the audio fix.
  3. Updated to 10.6.7 but I can't say it was without problems. I got a kernel panic during the update install, then upon rebooting it restarted during the bootup, then it booted up fine. Seems to be working fine now though.
  4. Oh, for sure. This will do until Lion. What I was actually asking was whether you had any intention of updating this for Lion itself (when it comes and if it's possible)...
  5. Seems to be working for me. I'm using a 2-3 year old Logitech Wave Wireless KB (IR, not Bluetooth). However, since I just moved house and don't have internet hooked up yet (just my 500mb allowance on my 3G phone), I haven't done any system updates yet, so it may not work with 10.6.6. Speaking of updates, do you reckon you'll be supporting us lazy buggers through to 10.7?
  6. Awesome work Tseug!!! My system drive just took a turn for the worse (random clicking sounds/system freezes, etc) so I decided to do a full reinstall on a fresh disk. I had to dig around to find this thread (mainly in the outer reaches of my brain to remember the name of the thread) and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it had been updated only a few days earlier! This latest update makes the install a complete breeze. A couple of years back and it would have been an all day affair! Can't express my thanks enough!
  7. Excellent news. I'd give it a go myself, but unfortunately I don't have a spare hard drive at the moment (and I can't afford to stuff up my working Leopard install). Look forward to hearing back from you with the results...
  8. LS8 - Love your work! Got any plans to port this wonderful install guide/pack over to Snow Leopard?
  9. Fresh install. 10.5.6 with the combo update. The script said to just hit enter for everything, so that's what I did. I'm on a DS4 v1.1 F8 Bios, Q6600, 8600GT, 8GB ram... I've just reinstalled 10.5.6 using munky's method and it's all working again. I'll give 10.5.7 a go on the weekend when I have another drive handy and I'll report back any problems.
  10. I followed your instructions perfectly, but I'm getting a kernel panic. Can't even boot into safe mode. I'm reverting back to 10.5.6 until I have time to sort this all out. Heck, I didn't even want to upgrade to 10.5.7... someone else clicked "OK" to the Software Update popup, which screwed up my install (even though I thought my "munky" install should have supported "software update"?)... and of course it always happens when you have a crapload of work to do.... I'd be interested to see if it works smoothly for others...
  11. Hi Guys, I've just got a few questions about WOL (wake on LAN). I've done a fair bit of searching, but I haven't found any conclusive answers on it. So first off, is it possible to get WOL working using the in-built ethernet? I'm currently using the r1000 kext because I need bonjour and AFP funtionality. Ideally I'd like to be able to wake my computer from sleep using WOL - is this possible? Are there other network cards that can give me this sort of functionality? On a "real mac" these features can be turned on or off in the Energy Saver pane of System Preferences, but they're not visible on this setup. I tried using Unix Commands from Remote Desktop to enable them, but it told me that the Wake from sleep feature was not supported by my machine. So has anyone else had any experiences with WOL? Did you find any solutions? Cheers, Steve

    Then get yourself a serial number. Or get the torrent. Good luck finding a HTTP link cause there aren't any legit ones.
  13. That's precisely what we've been discussing in the last few posts... LOL Essentially, you can get 5.1 either by combining the three analogue 2-channel outputs into a 5.1 aggregate device (see: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=87336) or you can connect by digital out SPDIF and get your reciever/speakers to decode the passed-through DTS/Dolby 5.1 encoded audio (or split a stereo signal to all 6 of your speakers, if your system is capable of doing this).
  14. Thanks! I was starting to come to that conclusion - just wasn't too sure. It'd be interesting to know how it behaves on a real Mac (or a PC for that matter). Unfortunately, I've only got a MacBook Pro (and I don't have windows installed on my PC), so I can't check
  15. I'm also very interested in this. I want to get a pair of z5500's and I'd love to have them using digital out most of the time. Has anyone solved the lack of keyboard volume control problem yet?
