  1. How to configure SMCWUSB-G ? Please help

    ZD_Wlan_Config.tiffI have the same USB WLan adaptor. You should use this driver and software: ZD1211 USB Wireless Lan Driver drivers from http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Drivers/Zydas...SB-driver.shtml. See also http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...10.5.2#Wireless for more info. After installation, you will find a Wlan application in you Utilities folder. When properly installed, the Wlan selector application will open when you boot your computer. You can set some parameters according to your Wlan network, security settings etc. in the application window. See screenshot in uploaded image.ZD_Wlan_Config.tiff Persevere and you will get things working.
  2. looking for a working USB wifi

    I just today bought a SMC Ez Connect 54G USB stick type SMCWUSB-G for Euro 10 here in the Netherlands. Working perfectly with the ZD1211 USB Wireless Lan Driver drivers from http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Drivers/Zydas...SB-driver.shtml. See also http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...10.5.2#Wireless for more info. I am using 10.5.3 (JaS edition) on a Medion MD 96780 laptop to write this reply.
  3. Working eSata PCIe card?

    That's seems a fairly old card to me. It doesn't have any external eSata ports. My Intel XBX2 motherboard does have an eSata connector, but it is on the RAID controller which is not supported natively. Hence my request for information on a PCIe card. Thanks.
  4. Working eSata PCIe card?

    I recently bought a pair of external HD enclosures fitted with both USB 2.0 and eSata connectors. I wish to use the eSata for backup (Time Machine) and file transfer. Are there any eSata cards on the market that work natively under OSX 10.5.2 and have the external Sata connector? Does anybody know of a front mounted (3,5" bay) multi-function device with an eSata port? Thanks.
  5. Medion 96630 with Nvidia 9300 Go

    I am still working on making this cheap laptop working as good as possible under OSX. I learned from some other web sites that the 9300M is derived from the 84/6xx series, with a G86 core, so no generation 9 core and hence the success with 10.5.2 nVidia kexts. Update 02-03-2008: Have installed Kalyway's 10.5.2 update but remained on ToH's 9.1.0 kernel for the moment. On first boot after upgrade I do seem to have full CI/QE and the still recurring blank menu's. On every next reboot I have gotten full CI/QE every time so far. I have run XBench v1.3 and the computer got a 84.16 total score. Quartz Graphics score was 103.13. Have installed ToH's 9.2.0 kernel, menu problems persist. XBench score has gone up to 94.41, Quartz Graphics now is 113.44. I don't know how this compares to other laptops with identical specifications. Geekbench score is 2044 which is amongst the top for this processor. These blank menu's are the most annoying obviously and need to be resolved immediately. Is this graphics related or OS related? Don't know where to start looking into this really. Any help would be most appreciated. When I remove nvInject v2.1 the problem disappears, but I am stuck with fully accelerated 1024x768 desktop. The battery/power indicator is gone from the menu bar, so probably some kext was removed or failed to load after the update to 10.5.2/9.2.0 Sound needs to be solved. Wireless needs to be solved. Express Card needs to be solved.
  6. Medion 96630 with Nvidia 9300 Go

    Well, I was surprised the 9C30 nVidia kexts loaded at all, booted to the desktop and didn't throw an error at me. I have rebooted the laptop a few times since, and on one occasion the desktop, dock and user interaction was smooth as a whistle, F9, F10, F11 and F12 graphic effects, screen saver worked just like on my stationary hack and I thought I was settled. On next reboot the desktop was slow and unresponsive as ever before again and menu's don't even display text on first opening, making selection almost impossible System Profiler still shows Graphics by NVidia, PCIe, 16 lanes, 128 MB, Device 0x042e, Revision 0x00a1, ROM revision NVinject 0.2.1 by johnniecarcinogen installer. System Profiler still shows Display 1280 x 800, 32 bit color, Core Image hardware accelerated, QE Supported etc. GeForce 1.5.24, NVDANV50Hal 1.5.24, NVDAResman 1.5.24, NVinject 0.2.1 kexts are loaded without errors in the Console. I suppose therefor the 9300 Go is recognized but not initiated properly, the acceleration features are not accelerated save for this one instance a few reboots ago. Open GL effects are unbearably slow, DVD Player does play, so I suppose there is a possibility I might make things work by working a few plists or whatever. I would like to know however if this is a CPU, GPU or OS problem, I would like to have some information on CPU speed to rule out the possibility of a CPU throttled too low, since the notebook runs mouse quiet and there is hardly any warm air coming from the exhaust grille. Any suggestions and or help in troubleshooting are most welcome. There are of course the slow shutdown and reboot, no wake up from sleep, no hibernation, no audible audio despite System Preferences saying there is, wireless and express card still to attend to later, but video and performance first. 01-03-2008: Lo and behold!! On the last reboot I have a fluid and smooth desktop again! DVD player is fully accelerated !!! I suppose this 9300M G can be made to work! Menu's are still blank on first opening, so I still cannot make a screenshot ... After about a dozen reboots I can testify that I have some sort of graphics acceleration every 5 reboots or so. Even then the Open GL performance of the Flurry screensaver seems a little slower than on my BadAxe hack but the desktop is responsive, DVD Player works. On every other reboot the desktop is sluggish and all acceleration seems to be done in software only, as the Dock is very slow. Will try installing Kalyway's 10.5.2 update and see if that at least helps the menu display problems.
  7. I have just bought a Medion 96630 notebook because of its excellent price/feature ratio: E 699 for Dual Core 1.6, 3 GB memory, 160 GB sata HD , 9300 Go with HDMI, e-Sata connector and such. (No firewire, alas) I managed to install iAtkos' 10.5.1 Leopard release with ToH kernel 9.1.0. There was no QE/CI at first, the installed NVInject v1.3 from iAtkos's DVD had to be removed for the laptop to boot to the desktop in the first place. Performance was very erratic and not smooth at all. I decided to install NVInstaller v.32 9C30 kexts from http://scottdangel.com's website. It gave me full 1280x800 and QE/CI according to System Profiler. Unfortunately, performance is still very erratic and even worse than before. Menu's take forever to open for instance. Where should I start looking for causes, clues and remedies to make this laptop perform better? Should I start editing NVDANV50 and NVDAResman kexts? Should I remove some specific laptop kexts such as throttling and power management? Anybody have positive or negative experiences with laptops in this price class? Thanks.
  8. Is your serial still valid after updating?
  9. Final Cut Studio 2 working on Hackintosh

    Well, it still doesn't work for me, after reading all these instructions. I installed a uphuck v1.3 DVD with 10.4.9 and ss3 speedstep kernel, kernel 3 if I remember correctly. FCP2 loads, opens the windows but then crashes upon initialisation of the user interface. There is a large error.log with the following error message: Exception: EXC_BAD_ADDRESS (0x0001) Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (0x0002) at 0x000000FC I suspect this is a kernel error. So I will try some of the other SSE3 kernels from the Uphuck.
  10. The Different Kernels

    Yes, I would also like to know how to keep kernels apart ... They are all named Mach_kernel after all. Is there some kind of ID-string, footprint or checksum or other command to identify which kernel is currently running? Thanks.
  11. I am looking into a powerful workstation for video editing and encoding. An Intel Q6600 is essentially double a Core2Duo processor in a single package, saving you the expense and hassle of double socket server boards. I intend to use an Intel D975XBX2 motherboard http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/D975XBX2/index.htm Does anybody have any user experience with Quad core processors and the current 1.4.8/8.8.1 OSX? Thanks
  12. Hacintosh for FCP--need advice

    What about those quad core processors like Q6600 in an Intel D975XBX2 desktop/workstation board? Does the Q6600 perform better than Core 2 Extreme? Especially in H264 encoding using Compressor?
  13. Hack Pro?

    So a Mac Pro isn't overpriced then? I thought a dual CPU workstation motherboard plus 2 3 GHz DualCore server CPU's (cannot recall their name right now) and 2 GB or RAM would be something like Euro 1200 - 1400? I should start saving money then. Thanks.
  14. What kind of hardware and at what cost? A Mac Pro is beautiful and well made, but oh so expensive, starting at Euro 2500 or so. What are the ingredients to build an equally powerful clone without the platform hardware restrictions? I am looking into a powerful machine for HD video editing, so no gaming monstrosity, no overclocking etc, just power and reliability. I need high clock speed and 2 - 4 GB memory, no fancy videocard, just a medium nVidia 7600GT with 2x DVI will do. Can we run such hardware with our 1.4.8 OSx? Thanks
