  1. A small note: WHen you change the virtualisation settings in BIOS, you need to "Cold Reboot" you CPU , ie shutdown completely and then start again for the settings to take effect. I learnt this when virtualbox in linux just would not show my CPU has VT-X enabled, even though I had set it so in BIOS and "warm rebooted" . Also, for now as BCC9 said, I fixed my time woes by setting UTC system clock in fedora12. I dont care much about windows , but its a good tip to set UTC in my Win7 so that time is proper across all 3 OS.
  2. Ok guys.. I had this problem since a long time.. but affecting me more now as I am frequently dual booting... When I boot Linux (Fedora 12) after using Snow Leopard (10.6.2), the system time is wrong..it seems to be set to GMT. I guessed it coz I am in GMT -7:00 time zone and it shows 7 hours ahead time (8pm instead of 1pm) . So any way to fix this??
  3. No..mine is a P8400 .. my SXPS 13 is from one of the first lots I guess..I had purchased it right when it was launched only to discover that a month later p8600 was the default and they had asked me 100$ more for it
  4. I guess its a permissions issue. Try doing "chown -R 0:0" on your kexts or use the OS X permission fix utility
  5. Oh yes! I checked the logs and the voodoopower.kext was not loading in 64 bit mode. I was trying out the 64 bit mode just to for fun.. I will revert back to 32 bit mode for regular use.
  6. I updated to 10.6.2 and mostly its fine, but now when I use the GenericCPUPMControl.app , it says the kernel extension is offline. What could be the reason for this!?
  7. Yes bcc9 , the temperatures in OS X and linux are pretty much the same so I guess that throttling is working fine. Btw, what app do you recommend for checking the temperatures? I am using GenericCPUpmControl.app for now . .
  8. I am confused a bit...I am wondering if I should install the voodooPstate.kext ? I dont have it installed now (using 10.6.1) and the GenericCPUpmcontrol app shows that throttling is working..so what should I do ?
  9. Hi All, Has anyone with Atheros wifi updated to 10.6.2 ? Are there any issues ? the netkas website mentioned that some extra kext is needed to load the new driver properly.
  10. I m sorry, I think posting external links is maybe disabled!! Try replacing insanelymac in the link with i h a c k i n t o s h Yes, I think its the spin up/down click. Sometimes its about once every 5-8 seconds. I am concerned because I had read somewhere that frequent spin ups/down is bad for HDD health. Is there any way to fix this ? I have tried disabling the " put hard disk to sleep" option in Energy Saver prefs, doesnt help.
  11. To make the bootable UDB, I used this guide http://www.insanelymac.com/2009/04/how-to-...ameleon-20-rc1/ Then once the USB was made bootable , I copied the contents of the Extra folder from Bcc9's boot cd to the Extra folder on the USB. But anyone ... any info on the hdd clicking noise issue please ??
  12. I am not sure if its just with me.. but has anyone noticed regular clicking sounds from the hard disk ?? I hear no such sounds when I am in Fedora 11 or Win Vista ( I have a triple boot ) Also, if anyone has it , is there any way to fix it ?? I have installed 10.6 on MBR hard disk using modified mpkg and created a USB boot from Chameleon 2 RC3 .

    Ok sounds cool, I ll look into the driver sources. And since I am a noob at this, one more stupid question, where do we modify the pin config in the kexts?!? Edit: I still have my Vostro 1400 with me and someone posted a kext with working internal dmic, so I can compare the codec dump from the Vostr0 and the vostro kext to see whats going on
  14. Studio XPS 13

    How do we find out the node id? Is it from the codec dump?? Edit: I notice that Node 0x13 seems to be the Digital Inbuilt Mic . Is it right ? I am new at reading and making sense of the codec dumps..!
  15. Studio XPS 13

    I did not do anything special. Just installed the latest GIT version of alsa-driver , edited modprobe.conf and reloaded the snd-hda-intel module. Also I use Kmix and there you have to right click in the mixer window and configure it to show all channels/controls. Then it shows a control called "digital input Source" . There if I select "Digital Mic 1" the inbuilt mic works and if I select "Analog Inputs" the connected mic at the jack works.
