  1. New AMD DVD for leopard

    I installed first Tiger and then installed Leopard on the same partition, it works fine (and without any flags. I remove -legacy in com.apple.Boot.plist,so it's 64 bits)
  2. Nvidia G92 (8800GT) support in 10.5.2

    Use Partimage or tar.gz your datas. My linux (4go for kde4 ubuntu) is safety placed on dvd now. You can also use GParted for resizing partitions, install Tiger, chroot from a Linux live cd, install grub and put time machine on Tiger's partition I share my data on NTFS partition, use ntfs3g & link my windows's documents and my linux's /home on it so i never lost anything:D Personally I learn few things on breakin^W^W^W^W^W^W^W modifying my systems.You can lost 2 hours for reinstalling everything or wait for a final. For both,except Marvin's Utility part of course. Just burn your .iso to a dvd (but rw seems capricious)
  3. Nvidia G92 (8800GT) support in 10.5.2

    8800GT 512MB QE/CI supported http://img297.imageshack.us/img297/5968/natitek5.jpg I cannot take away any more the stupid smile of my happy face. My method for 8800GT on AMD 64 X2 and nForce4 6100 motherboard with Natit: 1/Download this: http://rapidshare.com/files/78277297/gefor...2_kext.zip.html http://rapidshare.com/files/78277298/OpenG...k-1052.zip.html and Natit.kext here: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=33007 2/Modify the IOPCIMatch in Natit.kext.'s Info.plists to match with your graphic card, remove all other Device IDs. (For nForce4 motherboard with integrated graphic card users, edit GeForce.kext, NVDANV50Hal.kext, NVDAResman.kext too) You can use Property List Editor from XCode or PlistEditPro trial .http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/plisteditpro/ (maybe a simple text editor like nano if you know how to edit this XML file). System Information show you the Device ID (on my screenshot 0x0611) and the Vendor (0x10de) so the IOPCIMatch is 0xDeviceIDVendor (0x061110de) For 8800GT: <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x061110de</string> Add to Natit.kext under NVCAP for 512MB graphic cards (see the screenshot): <key>VRAM,totalsize</key> <data><00000020></data> 3/Copy the Natit.kext, geforce_1052_kext.zip's kexts on /System/Library/Extensions/, OpenGL.framework to /System/Library/Frameworks/ and: sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/* sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Frameworks/* sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/* sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Frameworks/* AMD users must use Marvin's AMD Utility from another OSX partition http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=67917 Type your password, use "Create Patcher Package", browse to /Volume/"LeopardPartition"/System/Library/Extensions/, "Run" Use "Patch all cpuids using a cpuid data file", remove "Simulation mode", select cpuid file: /User/"YourName"/Desktop/AMD.Patch.Folder/"TheLastFolder"/cpuid and select /Volume/"LeopardPartition"/System/Library/Extensions/,"Run" Repeat this operation with /System/Library/Frameworks/ (3 files to patch) Reboot, take a look at system info you must see QE/CI enabled (and 512MB).
  4. Nvidia G92 (8800GT) support in 10.5.2

    Probably that there is confusion between the integrated 6100 of nForce4 and the PCIex graphic card. Natit works great (even with 256MB), thanks for advice Greets to macgirl too, Marvin's utility patched some files, OpenGL.framework and NVDAResman.kext.
  5. Nvidia G92 (8800GT) support in 10.5.2

    Marvin's Utility give me a: <<script>> Doesn't understand the <<event earsffdr>> message :/ "So, you need an installation of OSX that isn't running for Marvin's utility to patch." I need to install Tiger on another partition, I presume. I will test. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=67917 "For AMD users, this utility allows you to locate the binaries in your OSX installation which are encrypted or have cpuids. Then it will permit you to patch them so that they will operate on your AMD system." You can use Property List Editor from XCode, PlistEditPro trial, or a simple text editor (like nano). After <key>rom-revision</key> <string>NVinject 0.2.0</string> Add <key>VRAM,totalsize</key> <string><00000020></string> Now I have another problem xD After reinstall OSX and repeat the previous operations, with NVinject 0.2.0, it seems that the screen shutdown after OSX boot,hdd led show activity so i switch from DVI to VGA cable,test also with another screen and change the <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1680x1050x32</string> in com.apple.Boot.plist but it don't resolve anything. EDIT:sorry, it's <data><00000020></data>
  6. Nvidia G92 (8800GT) support in 10.5.2

    I'm afraid that AMD systems can't use this new kexts. All profiles here that successfully use it is Intels,wrong? I have 10.5.1 with ToH kernel on AMD 64 X2. I tried NVinject 0.1.3, 0.1.7, 0.2.0. I have modified the IOPCIMatch on Info.plists to match with my 8800GT on NVinject.kext, GeForce.kext, NVDANV50Hal.kext, NVDAResman.kext, because it's nForce 4 6100 motherboard: <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x061110de</string> I've added to NVinject.kext as http://nvinject.free.fr/downloads.php image show it: <key>VRAM,totalsize</key> <string><00000020></string> I copied the NVinject.kext, geforce_1052_kext.zip's kexts on /System/Library/Extensions/, OpenGL.framework to /System/Library/Frameworks/ and sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject* sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce* sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/NVDA* sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL* sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject* sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce* sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/NVDA* sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL* I've rebooted with -v -f flags. No ways to make it functional, NVinject 0.1.3 and 0.1.7 are not recognized, CI is software and QE is unsupported, NVinject 0.2.0 freeze the boot (with or without -x flag). Correct me if I miss something somewhere EDIT:sorry, it's <data><00000020></data>
