  1. You are most welcome to translate it! It'll make me proud! hahaha. I might translate it into spanish! which is actually my first language! Take care,
  2. I have no idea. But could it be that your card, even thought, it is a better card than mine and with more CUDA cores, it has an older chipset on it? G80 vs G92 of my 8800GT? I do not know mate. Perhaps this hack is valid only for modern low end cards (mine was released in December 2007 .... perhaps cards with G92 chipsets and up? I do not know! This is a bump for me, google might be your friend.
  3. Latest GPU Nvidia Driver Reported to be working without problem! Thanks!
  4. I only have installed the commented driver in my post. In the pref panel, Cuda version (once updated, reports 3.1.10 and GPU driver version and gpu driver 19.5.8f01, instead of the one quoted by you. Reading the post to which you refer there seems to be a gain of performance with the new GPU (not CUDA) driver. I should try it. BUT Can you confirm that 19.5.8f03 works with grapics cards other than the 285 without problems?. In the linked post, people have reported it working, but I do not want to break a working system!! Thanks for the link. At some point I will try the new gpu driver and report my findings, perhaps upgrade the HOW TO.
  5. I know it is simple, I know it is exactly the same as with windows, but I am writing this guide because I know there are several other guides around but these are "windows only" and for some people this guide might just simply help: REQUERIMENTS: UPDATED 02/08/2010, LIST OF COMPATIBLE CARDS RETRIEVED FROM IFABIO I will first list the requirements, later in the text every requirement will be commented and clarified. - CUDA CAPABLE graphics card ANY cuda capable card with AT LEAST 768MB should work, this is the beauty of the trick (more on this later). - THE LATEST CUDA DRIVER: http://www.nvidia.co...er-archive.html - THE LATEST NVIDIA DRIVER: http://www.nvidia.co...f01-driver.html (note this driver requires a MacPro model identifier and 10.6.8. Older versions are still available) - 64 BIT SYSTEM (CORE2DUO, ETC...) - AN INSTALATION OF CS5 OF COURSE. A.0) IS YOUR CARD ON THIS LIST? If it is not, this hack most probably will not work for you. Still I should advice you to confirm it with the method mentioned later (gpusniffer), if you have a CUDA capable GFX card version 1.1 or superior, you should be ok.

A.1) INSTALL LATEST NVIDIA DRIVERS HAVE YOUR CS5 INSTALLATION READY I guess this does not need explanation. C ) FIND OUT THE REAL NAME OF YOUR GRAPHIC CARD Open a terminal emulator (c'mon do not be scared) 1- Go to the spotlight, type TERMINAL, press enter. 2- Now on the terminal type: /Applications/FOLDER\ FOR\ PREMIERE/PRO\ INSTALLATION\ Pro\ HERE/SOMETHING\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5.app/Contents/GPUSniffer.app/Contents/MacOS/GPUSniffer The "uppercased" words might be different for your instalation of CS5, find out yours, do not just simply copy and paste. - Most of the times, for standard instalations, the following should work, but it will not hurt you to look the actual place where premiere was installed: /Applications/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5.app/Contents/GPUSniffer.app/Contents/MacOS/GPUSniffer - You should get an output similar to this: - If it says somewhere that CUDA devices have been found you are lucky and you can use this capability. - Under CUDA device details, you should be able to see the actual name of your graphic card, in my example is "Geforce 8800 GT" copy the name off the terminal. DO NOT CLOSE THE TERMINAL D) ADD YOUR CARD TO THE LIST OF SUPPORTED CARDS. On the terminal type: sudo nano /Applications/Adobe\ Master\ Collection/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5.app/Contents/cuda_supported_cards.txt A new window appears, here, simply paste, at the end of the file, the name you copied earlier for your graphic card. NOW PRESS CTRL + X ANSWER "Y" (stands for YES, I want to save the file) Press enter until you get out of the editor. NOW YOU ONLY HAVE TO FIRE UP YOUR PREMIERE AND CHOOSE YOUR HARDWARE ENABLED MERCURY ENGINE. ENJOY. WINdOWS USERS should search in google for this: CS5 Cuda Hack – How to make Premiere CS5 work with... I hope this helps someone out there. UPDATE: LATESTS GPU DRIVERS CONFIRMED TO WORK, RECOMMENDED UPDATE FOR EVERYONE, IT SEEMS.

    Inspiron 1300 with iPC 10.5.6

    Everything working like a charm here. The sound works well here with the voodooHDA. It can sometimes go bad, rarelly here, when it does, simply pausing/playback again the application will do the trick. In this not very powerfull computer I have installed CogX as music player. Does its job. No problems with sound. Could it have something to doo with the fact that I am using the qoopz .8 kernel? My system: Ideneb 10.5.8 > wireless kext from his previous version (10.5.7 Ideneb). > Default fixes from Ideneb, plus ichxfix, voodoo power fixes for battery etc, voodoo ps2, eth 440x kext etc. A couple of notes: 1 - I need might need to try some trick for the clamshell support (it does not return well from a closed lid). I know there is an specific kext for this I might try it and let you know. 2 - The wireless (BCM4318) works flawlesly appart when you shut it down completelly (perhaps when on battery mode for saving energy). A quick fix is to go onto sleep mode, come back, that should do the trick. If it doesn't try fn+f2 (swichtes on the wireless) go to sleep and repeat the process. I just installed Ideneb 10.5.8 recently in this little computer for my sister, webbrowsing and simple things........ I am amazed how well this machine works with OSX .... thanks obviously to qoopz/voodoo team. ///////////////////////////// ///////////////////////////// Things I have to try: - I am not bothered with a Vanilla install (plus qoopz kernel). This comp is for my syster to browse the internet, download her pictures, listen to music and be free of viruses at the same time. Perhaps I will put back ubuntu for her on their release of their LTS version after their first revision. Still I am amazed how this machine works under leopard. - Clamshell thing. It is just one day ago that I installed this thing so far works amazing, I will try something on this later. I am amazed how well the sleep/suspend/everything works here. - Wireless: Same thing here, just to make things easy to my sister I will look into this, just to make her completelly painless the experience. Once I found the solution for this I will post it in here. For those who want to have a "just works" experience on this computer
