  1. ›› Voodoo XNU Kernel is now Released

    No not yet but I'll probably give it a go sometime tonight. Been reading up on other peoples adventures into the unknown and tried to decide on the best approach for my setup. Will post the results when it's done. Edit: Tried it with the 10.5.6 combo update. Updates all the way but on reboot just as the grey apple screen appears and the circle starts spinning, nothing more happens. On forced reboot, as soon as bios loads, it sounds like the hard drives are brought back from sleep mode. Reverted back to 10.5.5 from disk image. Will test more when I have more time on my hands.
  2. ideneb v1.3 10.5.5 startup issues

    You can download the latest version of the Chameleon installer at chameleon.osx86.hu. There's also the Voodoo kernel you could try. Works great for me on iDeneb 10.5.5. Find all relevant info here. Which graphics driver did you install? (NVInject, NVKush........)
  3. ideneb v1.3 10.5.5 startup issues

    You need to provide more details. Which drivers did you install? Which kernel? The fact that you can get it to boot in safe mode indicates a driver issue. Getting through the installation OK doesn't make it a successful install unless it boots and everything works like it's supposed to. It's only when you reboot after completing installation that the installed drivers gets loaded.

    Thanks Voodoo Team, this works great! Installed on iDeneb 10.5.5. Voodoo 1.0A using installer package. AMD 64 3700+ Abit AV8 mobo 2 GB RAM NVidia 7600GS (AGP) (NVinject. Running in PCI mode, no AGPGart installed, CI/QE working.) Intel Pro 100 PCI Ethernet card ATA HDs and DVD-RW It was running very well before on the XNU kernel and it runs great with the Voodoo kernel. Makes it so easy when I can use the Software Update and not think about patching. Thanks again for all the hard work, the results are brilliant!
  5. Running iDeneb 10.5.5 but I've seen this problem with genuine Tigers and Leopards too. What happens is predictable and reproducable: Login verifies but during the vpn connection the firewall stalls and returns the following warning: "The following ports are currently taken on your machine by other services. SSLVPN cannot tunnel these protocols until those ports are released. RDP - 3389" This is the same port that the Terminal Server uses. On a windows box this also happens when the local Terminal Server is running, which is the default setting, on the connecting machine. Disabling the local Terminal Server fixes the problem. Does anyone know if there's any service or app that needs to be "brought to it's knees" on osx to make it release this port? Any help appreciated.
  6. iDeneb V5 10.5.5 and software issues!

    I'm running Office 2008 just fine on iDeneb 10.5.5 but as Kabooka wrote I copied the installer to disk and ran it from there. Updated through service pack 1 and all subsequent updates just fine.
