  1. Lion and SMB Workgroup Problem

    Yeah, Apple's new implementation of Samba gave me problems with Dune HD Player - it just didn't want to connect. Installation of samba3 solved this problem. Even the update to 10.7.2 from 10.7 didn't touch samba3. C.44, I tried to follow your latter advice about Automator. Adding sudo /opt/local/sbin/smbd -D password mypasswordgoeshere && sudo /opt/local/sbin/nmbd -D password mypasswordgoeshere gave me an error in Automator: sudo no tty present and no askpass program I don't know why. But I replaced AppleScript do shell script "sudo /opt/local/sbin/smbd -D && sudo /opt/local/sbin/nmbd -D" with administrator privileges which I described in Post #9 with do shell script "sudo /opt/local/sbin/smbd -D && sudo /opt/local/sbin/nmbd -D" password "yourpassgoeshere" with administrator privileges and it worked fine. The only drawback of this solution is text configuration of samba. But using Textmate or TextWrangler it is not a big problem.
  2. Lion and SMB Workgroup Problem

    I've figured it out how I can run samba3 almost automatically I have created Automator application. Added AppleScript (Actions->Utilities->Run AppleScript), and added just that: do shell script "sudo /opt/local/sbin/smbd -D && sudo /opt/local/sbin/nmbd -D" with administrator privileges Then I saved this as an application and added it to my login items (System Preferences->Users&Groups->Login Items). It now runs automatically on login, it just asks for your admin password.
  3. Lion and SMB Workgroup Problem

    Thank you, C.44! That worked! I've found such guides about installing samba3, but after installing and running it, Windows kept asking for password. Nobody mentioned your Step #13! And now it works! com.imac.samba3.plist brought kernel panic , so I booted to single mode and removed the file! Thank you for this guide!
  4. Lion and SMB Workgroup Problem

    Noam AA, Thank you for your reply! I started doing like you said: 1) Before system shutdown I go to System Preferences, and turn off Sharing->File Sharing 2) I reboot or shutdown 3) When the system startups netbios name and workgroup are not "forgotten". I go to system preferences and turn on File Sharing. Maybe anyone knows how to turn Files Sharing on/off from the Terminal so it would be possible to automate these actions? I tried sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.AppleFileServer.plist and then sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.AppleFileServer.plist But it doesn't help. Or nobody uses samba? Or only just few people encounter such problems?
  5. Hi! There is a very naughty problem with Lion, it didn't happen in Leopard or Snow Leopard. I used to map my Mac OS's home folder in Windows 7. It worked fine, everything was great. But now Lion just "forgets" WORKGROUP settings in System Preferences->Network->Advanced->WINS. And if it just forgot, it would be more or less fine. But even after entering NetBIOS name and Workgroup and pressing Apply, it doesn't remember it! I open the dialog again, and the fields are empty again. But after some time, about a minute it may "remember" the settings. Here's what it looks like: you set the settings, press Apply, but after opening the dialog, the fields are empty. Then after one minute you open the dialog again, and your entered data is here... When Lion finally sets the Workgroup, I can easily access my folders from Windows 7. But without "remebered" workgroup Windows just asks for credentials, and though username and password on Mac and Windows matches, it doesn't let me in. This problem drives me mad, that is absolutely uncomfortable. I know that I'm not the only one who encountered this problem. I've searched a lot of forums, but no one has a solution... Please, can you tell if there is some guess or solution to this: 1) What is the source of the problem? Nothing of this happened earlier - in Leopard or Snow Leopard 2) Maybe I need to reinstall Samba instead of a new version built-in Lion? 3) Maybe I can somehow make a script to run on boot? 4) And maybe I can somehow turn off authentication in Windows? Or something? I'm lost. Could you please describe your guesses? Short summary: It is probably better to turn off Apple's File Sharing and install samba3, like C.44 described in Post #5. Still there is a problem with automatic launch of the samba service. You can solve this after reading Post #9, Post #11, Post #12. + very stable version of samba + works flawlessly with Windows, Dune HD Players and so on + fully automatic - requires some terminal work - samba configuration is performed in text editors (though it is pretty simple). You can also do like Noam AA told: after system reboot go to Sharing to disable File Sharing and then enable it back. Pluses and minuses here are reversed.
  6. This is a complete solution working for me for configuration: OS X Lion 10.7 M/B ASUS P8P67-M Rev3.0 (RTL) LGA1155 <P67> 2xPCI-E+GbLAN+1394 SATA RAID MicroATX (Realtek RTL8111E LAN controller & Realtek ALC 887-VD2 audio codec). CPU Intel Core i3-2120 512Mb <PCI-E> DDR-2 Gigabyte GV-N84S-512I (RTL) +DVI+HDMI <GeForce 8400GS> After successful installation of the system and the boot loader: 0) Download ASUS_P8P67_M.zip 1) Copy dsdt.aml file to your desktop. I took MaLd0n's DSDT from theme. Later, it was edited with the help of rafirafi's notes from here! 2) Run [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and select "UserDSDT Install", AppleHDA Rollback (under Drivers&Bootloader -> Kexts&Enablers -> Audio -> Realtek) and Lnx2Mac's RealtekRTL81xx Ethernet! And we have to rebuild cache and repair permissions. Someone noted that System Utilities from [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] broke kextcache, so I decided to use Kext Utility or Kext Wizard! 3) Reboot! After this you will notice new Ethernet controller appears in preferences. My GeForce 8400GS is also recognised by system, but I can't still change resolution. 4) If you still cannot change resolution, it is necessary to edit NVDANV50Hal.kext (located under /S/L/E/). Move it from /S/L/E/ to e.g. Desktop. Open Info.plist file inside it and scroll to <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> section. Look, my vendor ID is 0x10de and Device ID is 0x10c3. So, we gotta combine this into 0x10c310de! Right after the last string: 0x0ca010de&0xffe0ffff in IOPCIPrimaryMatch we have to add: 0x10c310de&0xffe0ffff Save file. There is no need to edit NVDAResman.kext in Lion! This method was noted by a1k0n and oldnapalm! 5) Using KextHelper, add NVDANV50Hal.kext and dmazar's kext ALC887vdHDA_6Ch_RMic_SPDIF.kext Run Kext Utiluity or Kext Wizard! Reboot! 6) After the reboot you can change resolution, HDMI (or DVI) and D-Sub works. Sound is perfectly working! I tested SPDIF and Internal Speakers! It works flawlessly, without any cracks, glitches and kernel panics! I have to thank MaLd0n, rafirafi, dmazar, a1k0n, oldnapalm, [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]! Thanks to all of you! Wouldn't be able to do this without your help! I didn't try to run USB 3.0 controller and FireWire controller. Still I got one problem left: I've got 2 FullHD monitors, but HDMI and DVI do not work together. And I have to connect the second monitor to D-Sub port, though it doesn't not provide enough quality.
  7. Gigabyte GeForce 8400GS and Lion

    Hello! I am trying to install OS X Lion 10.7. I’m stuck with 512Mb <PCI-E> DDR-2 Gigabyte GV-N84S-512I (RTL) +DVI+HDMI <GeForce 8400GS>. It’s image: My Card My system: CPU Intel Core i3-2120 M/B ASUS P8P67-M Rev3.0 (RTL) LGA1155 <P67> 2xPCI-E+GbLAN+1394 SATA RAID MicroATX I’ve tried a lot of methods: 1) [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] from [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] (which worked perfectly for another PC with GeForce 9500GT) 2) Tried just putting GraphicsEnabler=Yes flag 3) Tried NVEnabler 4) Tried NVEnabler64 5) Tried putting EFI Strings for my own 8400GS video card and tried EFI Strings of Custom GeForce videocard with 512 mb of memory and DVI-DVI ports 6) Tried EFI Strings from “EFI strings for many videocards” thread on kexts.com 7) And the last one I tried was “nVidia GeForce 8400GS + NVEnabler” thread from the same kexts.com Using 1-6 methods I got 1024x768 resolution. I could connect my monitor to each port (HDMI, DVI, D-Sub), they all worked (in 1024x768), but not simultaneously (so if I connect 2 monitors, I get an image only on a single one). I have googled and search a lot of forums, but each solution lead to 1024x768, that’s all. Nothing changes. Just in “System profiler” I can see that my card was detected as GeForce 8400 GS. Even using just a GraphicEnabler, my system recognizes the videocard. When using the last method: “Instruction: This graphics card is post 2010 version of nVidia GeForce 8400GS 512 MB PCI-E. 1. Remove GeForce.kext, NVDANV50Hal.kext, NVDAResman.kext from your /System/Library/Extensions. 2. Use KextHelper app (in the attachment) and install the kexts. GeForce NVDANV50Hal NVDAResman NVEnabler64 I have added 0x10c310de 0x0be310de in IOPCIMatch key inside Info.plist files of GeForce, NVDANV50Hal, NVDAResman. So you just need to run these kexts in KextHelper and reboot. You should get a screen working by now with Display connector value as 1619w.“ I deleted all files described, used KextHelper, but it didn’t install anything, though it reported that everything went fine. I just copied kexts to S/L/E and repaired with Kext Utility. After the reboot I can see blinking cursor (with full 1920x1080 resolution), but the system doesn’t show me the logon screen. I’m totally stuck. I don’t know what to do. I have bought a new computer and took this 8400 GS just because I’ve read a lot of times that one can install it in Mac OS X without problems… And I got this such a nice surprise…
