  1. Yeah, you're only using one core. Not sure why. I saw an article awhile back on getting Leopard to properly recognize your CPU on an AMD system. Would be a good place to start. Do some googling and see what you find.
  2. If you go to the system monitor, under CPU usage, does it show 4 cores at work? My current Snow install shows only one CPU under System Information, but shows all 4 cores at work when i look at the system monitor.
  3. I'm now running 10.6.1 which seems to work better although video card support isn't quite as good (slower). Using modbin's kernel
  4. Do you mean what drivers i used? I don't remember all the drivers, but i used Voodoo 9.5 kernel, seatbelt fix, and i don't remember what all else. Just read the descriptions for all of them and you should be able to figure out if you need it or not.
  5. the 5870 will probably be difficult to get working. i have the same processor and don't need the cpus=1 flag.
  6. I never had to use CPUs=1 so try removing that.
  7. Well honestly you're better off going intel. The AMD works, but you DO have debugging issues with XCode on the Voodoo 9.5 Kernel. the Intel CPUs can run a Vanilla kernel, which obviously is way better. Definitely look into the cheapest INTEL solution first, then compare to what it would cost for an AMD system. THEN decide which route you want to go.
  8. Sorry for the late reply. Wasn't really watching this thread anymore until someone PM'd me about it. Setup is still working. Wouldn't say it's 100% since breakpoints don't work in Xcode with Voodoo 9.5 They still work if i'm developing for the iPhone on the device instead of simulator. Other than that it's working well. I did have one issue for a little while where I had the Mail app set to start at login. For some reason it was causing a kernel panic. Perhaps my LAN hadn't connected by the time Mail started? I also have to use bootratio=17 (my CPU multiplier) bootflag. Those are the only problems I've had. If you need help setting this up, PM me your MSN or XMPP and I'll help you over IM. EDIT: Btw, i used iDeneb OSX Version 10.5.7 (Voodoo 9.5 Kernel) Oh, and I actually have a triple boot set up. (Windows 7, Ubuntu 9.04, OSX 10.5.7)
  9. AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4Ghz ASRock M3A780GXH/128M Socket AM3 Motherboard AMD 780G North Bridge AMD SB710 South Bridge 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600 XFX ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 SATA DVD burner & HDDs Had to change my SATA to AHCI, and add "busratio=17" to my startup options. Installed with Voodoo 9.5 Kernel. Needed the Seatbelt fix. I had to search around for LAN, Sound and Video drivers. I've got some of the pages for these drivers bookmarked in Windows, so I'll have to edit this post later with links. *EDIT* here's where i found drivers for my 4890: http://forum.hardmac.com/index.php?showtopic=6384 Setup seems to be working 100% and stable. Haven't had any crashes, everything seems to be working correctly including my 4890. Have my resolution set at 1920x1080, works great.
  10. need iphone dev help

    Go and download all the iPhone example apps from developer.apple.com. There's one that shows how to do this.
  11. Alternative to xcode

    I've developed on Windows, Linux and other mobile devices before. I must say that Xcode is an excellent IDE. You just need to get used to working on a Mac. It's a completely different environment. As for it's speediness, did you ever stop and think you might need a faster computer??? And to answer your question, NO.
  12. Iphone SDK & Developer Software

    Intel based MACs were out before the iPhone was. They were out WAAAAY before the App store was even thought of.
  13. For anyone trying to do this in the future, use NSAttributedString
