  1. Great, looking forward to it! Take your time and enjoy your break. I really appreciate your work on this over the years. Has always worked great on my now old DS4!
  2. Tseug, is the new installer required to "finalize" prior installations? For example, in the past I've run your original ./finalize after applying certain software updates. Do I need to use the ./finalize in the new installer for any software updates in the future, or is it for use only with new Lion installations? I'm a little confused as to what changed that caused you to create the new installer and what it should be used for.
  3. Working X1950 & Snow Leopard 10.6.4

    [sigh] ... time to dump the x1950 and upgrade? Any recommendations for a dual DVI, non-gamer card?
  4. Working X1950 & Snow Leopard 10.6.4

    Has anyone had success with this guide on 10.7 Lion?
  5. Oh, I'm waiting until the final release in a month, not in a hurry.
  6. Looks very cool, tseug, thanks. For those of us following you for awhile, is it possible to upgrade to Lion from our current 10.6, or do you recommend a clean install as per the new guide?
  7. I was having a different problem - related to video - but this update fixed it. THANKS
  8. I'm having problems with video and audio after installing your package. The audio is crackling in and out; I'm just using the DS4's onboard sound. I'm defaulting to 1400x1050 resolution instead of the native 1280x1024 and System Preferences/Displays is offering no other resolutions. I've previously had to workaround my ATI 1950 Pro not being recognized (see link in sig), but now it's worse than before, because the steps I followed aren't seem to working (I adjusted the ATIxxxxx.kext files). Any ideas on how to fix? Your package wouldn't have changed KEXTs would it? You're installing a customized DSDT, right? I'm wondering if there is a setting/option in Chameleon I need to make or somewhere else...
  9. Absolutely, backup is my friend. One more question - does the installer take care of configuring Chameleon? I think I'm on old version RC2 and recall that setup might have been a separate initial step in the process. THANKS
  10. tseug - Very happy to have you here! Just to clarify, for my existing tseug-style osx86 (hackinstosh) on the ga-p35-ds4, I should be able to update to your latest just by running the new installer and rebooting? No need for a fresh install?
  11. I deleted SleepEnabler.kext, applied the full 10.6.6 ComboUpdate, then rebooted - did not add SleepEnabler.kext. Everything is good - I'm not sleeping, but I wasn't before either.
  12. I'm interested in the answer to your question too! I haven't tried to update yet - wish this thread were busier than it's been lately!
  13. Working X1950 & Snow Leopard 10.6.4

    This worked perfectly for me - straightforward process and clear, easy steps to follow: THANKS for doing this I've used the Bronya kexts (or some derivative of) since my initial build with 10.5.7, I think. I like this approach much more, since I'm able to see the couple of specific tweaks required and can do it myself (how did you figure out how to do this?)! Oddly, my resolution @ 1280x1024 required no tweaks - it was fine right after the update to 10.6.4; so I skipped your step 2 and just used your steps 3 and 4. Not sure why - maybe because certain Bronya kexts carried over from 10.6.3? I'm using Chameleon RC3 but don't believe GraphicsEnabler is enabled.
  14. I finally updated to 10.6.3 successfully . Here are the steps I followed: 1. Downloaded 10.6.3 Combo Update from apple.com (didn't use Software Update) 2. Backup kexts in /Extra/Extensions (just in case) 3. deleted /Extra/Extensions/SleepEnabler.kext 4. Ran the combo 10.6.3 updater - NO REBOOT 5. copied in the new SleepEnabler.kext into /Extra/Extensions/ 6. Authorized SleepEnabler.kext via: sudo chown -R root:wheel /Extra/Extensions/SleepEnabler.kext sudo chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions/SleepEnabler.kext sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions 7. Rebooted Finally, because I have an ATI x1950PRO video card, I needed to update my video drivers (the update caused QE functionality to not work). Insanelymac-er VooD has updated bronya's x1950 package to work with 10.6.3 - see here. I downloaded the revised package and executed the included load.command file and had video functionality successfully restored.
